PHYSICS UNIT 2: DYNAMICS

(Explaining Motion)

FORCES


Force
: a "push" or a "pull“


unit:

Newtons, N
(1 N is about ¼ lb)


vector
-

includes direction


contact forces

and
field forces
(act over a
distance)


net force
: total effect of all forces acting on
an object

FORCES


Typical Forces


gravity, F
G
:

object’s weight, always directed toward
center of earth (
F
G
=mg
mass
×

acceleration due to
gravity
)


normal force, F
N
: supporting force a surface exerts on an
object, always directed
upward perpendicular to the
surface


tension, F
T
: force transmitted by a rope or chain, directed
along the rope, constant throughout the rope

FORCES


Free body diagrams
: show just one object & the
forces acting

on the object
(NOT forces the object
is exerting on other things)

example: car hitting a
wall

Examples


Apple on a table


Rock under
water


Block on a hill


Water skier


Child pulled
forward at an
angle on a sled


NEWTON’S LAWS OF
MOTION


The Law of Inertia (1
st

Law):
an object’s
velocity stays constant

unless acted
upon by a net external force


inertia
: resistance to
change

in motion
(mass is a measure of inertia, more mass
= more inertia)

Example of
Newton’s
1
st

Law

NEWTON’S 2
nd

LAW OF
MOTION


The Law of Acceleration (2
nd

Law):

a net force
causes an acceleration

proportional to the force, in
the same direction, and inversely proportional to
mass.


F
net

= ma


F
net
: sum of all forces or net force (N),



m: mass (kg),


a: acceleration (m/s
2
)


1 N = 1 kg∙m/s
2

Second


The
greater

the force, the greater the
acceleration


The greater the
mass
, the greater the force
needed

for the
same

acceleration


Calculated by:
F = ma



(F = force, m = mass, a = acceleration)


NEWTON’S 2
nd

LAW OF MOTION

NEWTON’S 3
rd

LAW OF
MOTION


The Law of Interaction (3
rd

Law):
for
every action force

from one object on
another,
there is an equal magnitude,
opposite direction reaction force
from
the 2
nd

object back on the 1
st

action: hammer
hits anvil

reaction: anvil
hits hammer

NEWTON’S 3
rd

LAW OF
MOTION


Law of Interaction (3
rd

Law)


action & reaction forces do not balance

each other
-

they are on different bodies
(ex: car pulling a trailer)


equal force does not mean equal
acceleration

-

depends on mass
(ex:
person jumping off the ground)

Examples of Newton’s 3
rd

law

FORCES


Finding the Net Force

(total of all forces on an object)


draw a free body diagram


identify & label
x & y axes


separate forces into x and y parts


F
x
=Fcos
q

F
y
=Fsin
q


add all x forces, add all y forces


equilibrium
: no net force


x forces add up to zero, y
forces add up to zero

QUIZ 2.1


Joe rolls a ball down a hill. The ball has
a mass of 0.500 kg. The force pulling
the ball down the hill is 6.00 N. The hill
is 100.0 m long. (a) What is the ball’s
acceleration? (b) How fast is the ball
going at the bottom of the hill, if it
started at rest at the top? (c) If the
force on the ball doubled, what would
happen to the ball’s acceleration? (d) If
instead the mass of the ball doubled,
what would happen to its acceleration?

NEWTON’S LAWS OF
MOTION


Law of Inertia (1
st

Law)


objects slow & stop, or require continued
force to keep moving, due to
friction

FRICTION


Friction Force, F
f
:
resistance to motion
between objects in
contact with each
other


acts
parallel to contact
surface, opposite to
motion


caused by uneven
surfaces, molecular
attraction

FRICTION


static friction
: resistance to starting
motion (at rest)


beneficial
(walking, building, eating,
wheels rolling)


kinetic friction
: resistance to continued
motion (sliding)


undesirable
(machines, moving furniture,
wheels skidding)

kinetic
friction <
static friction

FRICTION


coefficient of friction,

m
: constant that
depends on type of surfaces in contact


m
s
: coefficient of static friction


m
k
: coefficient of kinetic friction

UNIT 2 REVIEW


Newton's Laws (Memorize!):


1st Law: velocity stays constant unless
acted upon by a net force


2nd Law: net force = mass x acceleration


3rd Law: for every action force, there is an
equal and opposite reaction force
