6 Section 2 Forces, Energy and Power Dynamics deals with the forces causing motion and the properties of the resulting moving system. Newton s 1st Law of Motion Newton s 1st law of Motion states that an object will remain at rest or travel with a constant speed in a straight line (constant velocity) unless acted on by an unbalanced force. Newton s 2nd Law Newton s 2nd law of motion states that the acceleration of an object: varies directly as the unbalanced force applied if the mass is constant varies inversely as the mass if the unbalanced force is constant. These can be combined to give a α F m a = kf where k is a constant m kf = ma The unit of force, the newton is defined as the resultant force which will cause a mass of 1 kg to have an acceleration of 1 m s -2. Substituting in the above equation. k 1 = 1 1 k = 1 Provided F is measured in newtons, the following equation applies. N F = ma m s -2 kg 3

7 Free Body Diagrams It is very rare for an object to have only one force acting upon it. More commonly, objects will have more than one force acting upon them. It is advisable to draw a diagram of the situation showing the direction of all forces present acting through one point (the centre of mass). These are known as free body diagrams. Examples 1. On take-off, the thrust on a rocket of mass 8000 kg is 200,000 N. Find the acceleration of the rocket. Thrust = N Weight = mg = = N Resultant force = = N a = F m a = a = 15.2ms -2 4

8 2. A woman is standing on a set of bathroom scales in a stationary lift (a normal everyday occurrence!). The reading on the scales is 500 N. When she presses the ground floor button, the lift accelerates downwards and the reading on the scales at this moment is 450 N. Find the acceleration of the lift. Force upwards = 500 N Lift is stationary, forces balanced W = F = 500 N Weight = 500 N F upwards = 450 N W = 500 N F u Lift accelerates downwards, unbalanced force acts. Resultant Force = W - Force from floor = W F = = 50N a = F u m a = (from W =mg) a = 1 ms -2 5

9 3. Tension A ski tow pulls 2 skiers who are connected by a thin nylon rope along a frictionless surface. The tow uses a force of 70 N and the skiers have masses of 60 kg and 80 kg. Find a) the acceleration of the system b) the tension in the rope. 70N 60kg 80kg a) Total mass, m = 140 kg a = Fu m a = a = 0.5 ms -2 b) The tension in the rope provides the necessary force to accelerate the 60 kg skier. Consider the 60 kg skier alone. Tension, T = ma = = 30 N 6

10 Resolution of a Force In the previous section, a vector was split into horizontal and vertical components. This can obviously apply to a force. F v = F sin θ θ F h = F cos θ Example A man pushes a lawnmower of mass 100 kg with a force of 200 N acting at 30 to the horizontal. If there is a frictional force of 100 N between the lawnmower and the ground, what is the acceleration of the lawnmower along the ground? F h = F cos θ = 200 cos 30 = N 30 Resultant F h a = F u m = Friction = = 73.2 N Friction = 100 N F h = = ms -2 7

11 Force Acting Down a Plane If an object is placed on a slope then its weight acts vertically downwards. A certain component of this force will act down the slope. The weight can be split into two components at right angles to each other. Component of weight down slope = mg sinθ Component perpendicular to slope = mg cosθ Example A wooden block of mass 2 kg is placed on a slope at 30 to the horizontal as shown. A frictional force of 4 N acts up the slope. The block slides down the slope, from rest, for a distance of 3 m. Determine the speed of the block at the bottom of the slope. 3 m 2 kg 30 Friction = 4 N Component of weight acting down slope = mg sin 30 = = 9.8 N Resultant force down slope = friction = = 5.8 N 8

12 a = F u m = = 2.9 ms -2 v 2 = u 2 + 2as = 0 + (2 x 2.9 x 3) = 17.4 v = 4.2 ms -1 Conservation of Energy The total energy of a closed system must be conserved, although the energy may change its form. The equations for calculating kinetic energy E k, gravitational potential energy E p and work done are given below. E p = mgh E k = 1 2 mv2 work done = force displacement Energy and work are measured in joules J. 9

13 Example A trolley of mass 1 kg is released down a slope from a height of 0.3 m. If its speed at the bottom is found to be 2 ms -1, Find a) the energy difference between the E p at top and E k at the bottom. b) the work done by friction c) the force of friction on the trolley 2 m 1 kg 0.3 m a) E p at top = mgh = = 2.94 J E k at bottom = 1 2 mv2 = = 2 J Energy difference = 0.94 J b) Work done by friction = energy difference (due to heat, sound) = 0.94 J c) Work done = Force of friction d 0.94 = F x 2 F = Force of friction = 0.47 N 10

14 Power Power is the rate of transformation of energy from one form to another. energy work done F P = = = time time displacement =F t average velocity Power is measured in watts W. 11
