1 The Big Idea Acceleration is caused by force. All forces come in pairs because they arise in the interaction of two objects you can t hit without being hit back! The more force applied, the greater the acceleration that is produced. Objects with high masses are difficult to accelerate without a large force. In the absence of applied forces, objects simply keep moving at whatever speed they are already going. In formal language1: Newton s 1st Law: Every body continues in its state of rest, or of uniform motion in a right (straight) line, unless it is compelled to change that state by forces impressed upon it. Newton s 2nd Law: The change of motion is proportional to the motive force impressed; and is made in the direction of the right (straight) line in which that force is impressed. Newton s 3rd Law: To every action there is always opposed an equal reaction: or, the mutual actions of two bodies upon each other are always equal, and directed to contrary parts. Key Concepts 1 An object will not change its state of motion (i.e., accelerate) unless an unbalanced force acts on it. Equal and oppositely directed forces do not produce acceleration. If no unbalanced force acts on an object the object remains at constant velocity or at rest. The force of gravity is called weight and equals mg, where g is the acceleration due to gravity of the planet (g = 9.8 m/s2, downward, on Earth). Your mass does not change when you move to other planets, because mass is a measure of how much matter your body contains, and not how much gravitational force you feel. To calculate the net force on an object, you need to calculate all the individual forces acting on the object and then add them as vectors. This requires some mathematical skill. Newton s 3rd Law states for every force there is an equal but opposite reaction force. To distinguish a third law pair from merely oppositely directed pairs is difficult but very important. Third law pairs must obey three rules: they must be of the same type of force, Principia in modern English, Isaac Newton, University of California Press, 1934 People s Physics Book Ch 5-1

2 they are exerted on two different objects and they are equal in magnitude and oppositely directed. Example: A block sits on a table. The Earth s gravity on the block and the force of the table on the block are equal and opposite. But these are not third law pairs, because they are both on the same object and the forces are of different types. The proper third law pairs are: (1) earth s gravity on block/block s gravity on earth and (2) table pushes on block/ block pushes on table. If you re asked to evaluate a vector, you may state the x and y components of the vector, or a magnitude and an angle with respect to the horizontal. Key Equations a = F net / m ; the acceleration produced depends on the net force on an object and its mass. F net = F individual forces = ma ; the net force is the vector sum of all the forces acting on the object. F net,x = F x-direction forces = ma x ; the net force in the x-direction is the sum of all the forces acting on the object in the x- direction. F net,y = F y-direction forces = ma y ; as above, but in the y-direction. F g = mg ; the force of gravity acting on an object, often simply called the weight of the object. On Earth, g = 9.8 m/s 2 in the downward direction. F N ; the normal force is a contact force that acts in a perpendicular direction to a surface. 2 F sp = k(δx) ; the spring force is the force a coiled spring exerts when it is either compressed or expanded by a displacement Δx from its resting position. 2 The spring constant k depends on the strength of the spring, and has units of N/m. F T ; the force of tension is a force that acts in strings, wires, ropes, and other non-stretchable lines of material. 2 f s µ s F N ; the force of static friction acts between two surfaces that are in contact but not in motion with respect to each other. This force prevents objects from sliding. It always opposes potential motion, and it rises in magnitude to a maximum value given by this formula. 2 f k = µ k F N ; the force of kinetic friction acts between two surfaces that are in contact and in motion with respect to each other. This force slows sliding objects. It always opposes motion. 2 2 Ultimately, many of these contact forces are due to attractive and repulsive electromagnetic forces between atoms in materials.

Here s a clever way to determine your acceleration. As you accelerate your car on a flat stretch, you notice that the fuzzy dice hanging from your rearview mirror are no longer hanging straight up and down.

Draw free body diagrams (FBDs) for all of the following objects involved (in bold) and label all the forces appropriately.

12 35. Spinal implant problem this is a real life bio-med engineering problem! L Here s the situation: both springs are compressed by an amount x o. The rod of length L is fixed to both the top plate and the bottom plate. The two springs, each with spring constant k, are wrapped around the rod on both sides of the middle plate but are free to move, because they are not attached to the rod or the plates. The middle plate has negligible mass, and is constrained in its motion by the compression forces of the top and bottom springs. The medical implementation of this device is to screw the top plate to one vertebrae and the middle plate to the vertebrae directly below. The bottom plate is suspended in space. Instead of fusing broken vertebrates together, this implant allows movement somewhat analogous to the natural movement of functioning vertebrae. Below you will do the exact calculations that an engineer did to get this device patented and available for use at hospitals. a.

Sensors in his car have measured the acceleration and velocity of the car, as well as all forces acting on it, for various times. The driver s motion can be broken down into the following steps: Step 1: The driver, beginning at rest, accelerates his car on a horizontal road for ten seconds. Sensors show that there is a force in the direction of motion of 6000 N, but additional forces acting in the opposite direction with magnitude 1000 N. The mass of the car is 1250 kg. Step 2: Approaching the cliff, the driver takes his foot of the gas pedal (There is no further force in the direction of motion.) and brakes, increasing the force opposing motion from 1000 N to 2500 N. This continues for five seconds until he reaches the cliff. Step 3: The driver flies off the cliff, which is 44.1 m high, and begins projectile motion. a.
