1 Isaac Newton (1642 to 1727) Force Chapter 4 Born 1642 (Galileo dies) Invented calculus Three laws of motion Principia Mathematica. Newton s Three Law s of Motion 1. All objects remain at rest or in uniform, straight-line motion unless acted upon by an outside force. (inertia) mass - measure of inertia. Mass & inertia are directly proportional 2. Force = mass X acceleration 3. Every force has an equal and opposite force. Ball in jar example: The First Law The First Law The First Law Now stop pushing the jar (same as not wearing a seatbelt) Direction of jar Marble keeps going Jar gets stopped 1

2 School bus example The First Law The First Law Bee in a car example 1. Bee is in air when car starts 2. Bee is on the seat when car starts This is the way you want to keep going The bus has turned, so you feel pulled to the side. Does it take less force to push the elephant (ignore friction) on earth or on the moon? Does it take less force to move the elephant if he is weightless in space? Inertial Reference Frames Non-accelerating (constant velocity) reference frame All laws of physics are identical Cannot tell if you are moving in an Inertial Reference Frame Speed of light question The Second Law Force = mass X acceleration SF = ma Sum of all the forces acting on a body 2

3 The Second Law The Second Law Situation One: Constant Velocity Objects Sitting objects still have forces Constant velocity objects SF = 0 Force of the material of the rock Force of gravity Situation Two: Accelerating Object SF = ma ma = F pedaling F air - F friction F F pedaling air F friction The Second Law Unit of Force = the Newton SF=ma SF = (kg)(m/s 2 ) 1 N = 1 kg m/s 2 1 Newton accelerates a 1 kg object from rest to 1 m/s in 1 s. A 60.0 kg bike and rider accelerates at m/s 2. How much extra force did the rider s legs have to provide? A force of 5.00 Newtons can accelerate a watermelon 2.50 m/s 2. What is the mass of the watermelon? SF = ma = (60.0 kg)(0.500 m/s 2 ) SF = 30.0 kg m/s 2 = 30 N (No actual watermelons were harmed in the production of this example problem) 3

4 What Force is needed to accelerate a 5.00 kg bowling ball from 0.00 to 20.0 m/s over a time period of 2.00 seconds? Calculate the net force required to stop a kg car from a speed of km/h within a distance of 55.0 m. (10,500 N) The 3 rd Law SF = ma = (1500 kg)(-7.03 m/s 2 ) = -10,500 N (negative sign tells us that the force is the in the opposite direction of motion) For every force, there is an equal and opposite force. F brakes Direction of original motion Runner example: Does the runner push on the earth? Why does the runner move more? Does the earth move at all? F forward F gases Backward force for the earth Forward force for the runner 4

5 Sled of bricks on Ice: Would the sled move? ICE Mass vs. Weight Mass (kg) Amount of matter in an object Independent of gravity (the # of atoms in an object does not change) English unit is a slug Weight (N) Force from gravity pulling on an object Weight = mg English unit is a pound 1 lb = 4.45 N 2.2 lb equivalent to 1 kg What is the weight of a 60.0 kg man? If a freshman weighs 500 N, what is her mass? A 60.0 kg person weighs N on the moon. What is the acceleration of gravity on the moon? Weight = mg moon g moon = Weight/m g moon = N/60.0 kg = 1.67 m/s 2 (Note that this is almost exactly 1/6 th of earth s gravity) Calculate the weight of a 56 kg person: a) On earth (549 N) b) On the moon (g=1.7 m/s 2 ) (95.2 N) c) Suppose that person is taken to a different planet and has a weight of 672 N.
