1 Name: Date: Physics 11 - Chapter 4 FORCES 4.5 Using Newton s Law (Part ) Q- A man wants to test a rope. He ties one end to a telephone pole and the other to a horse and makes the horse pull as hard as it can. It is not quite strong enough to break the rope. The man brings in a second horse of identical strength to take the place of the telephone poll. Will the rope break when the two horses pull in opposite directions as hard as they can? Explain your answer. Q- When a 0.0 kg child steps off a 3.0 kg stationary skateboard with an acceleration of 0.50 m/s, with what acceleration will the skateboard travel in the opposite direction? {The Net Force Causes Acceleration} In Newton s nd Law, F = ma, the force F that causes the mass to accelerate is the force acting on the mass. * The force is the vector sum of the applied and frictional forces. We must pay attention to the signs! Ex: Consider a 10.0 kg stone lying on the ground. The stone is at rest; the net force on it is zero. How can the stone (10 kg) be given an upward acceleration? Suppose a person exerts a 148 N upward force on the stone. {The Fall of Bodies in Air} Why do all objects free fall at the same rate of acceleration regardless of their mass? Is it because they all weigh the same?... Because they all have the same gravity?... Because the air resistance is the same for each? Why?

2 Consider the free-falling motion of a 1000-kg baby elephant and a 1-kg overgrown mouse. In the absence of air friction, all objects fall with the same. (Galileo) Earth Moon - Falling with Air Resistance As an object falls through air, it usually encounters some degree of air resistance. Air resistance is the result of collisions of the object's leading surface with air molecules. The actual amount of air resistance encountered by the object is dependent upon a variety of factors Q- In the diagrams below, free-body diagrams showing the forces acting upon an 85-kg skydiver (equipment included) are shown. For each case, use the diagrams to determine the net force and acceleration of the skydiver at each instant in time.. The diagrams above illustrate a key principle. As an object falls, it picks up speed. The increase in speed leads to an increase in the amount of air resistance. Eventually, the force of air resistance becomes large enough to balances the force of gravity At this instant in time, the net force is 0 Newton; the object will stop accelerating. The object is said to have reached a terminal velocity. We often encounter air resistance! (Drag force) It is like a friction force! If we sky dive from a plane we will start to accelerate! As our velocity the air friction After a certain amount of time our = Our velocity becomes constant this is called Homework: Read pgs , Do pg 10 #13-16
