Measuring Motion: Distance • Distance- how far an object moves on a path • Displacement- how far between starting and ending points on a path Measuring Motion: Speed • Speed – rate of motion – distance traveled per unit time speed = distance time Measuring Motion: Speed (cont’d) • Instantaneous Speed – speed at a given instant • Average Speed= total distance total time Measuring Motion: Velocity • Velocity – speed in a given direction – can change even when the speed is constant! Calculating Velocity: Distance/Speed/Time Triangle Graphing Speed/Velocity • X axis- usually independent variable (time) • Y axis- usually dependent variable (distance) • Slope of straight line= vertical change horizontal change Graphing (cont’d) • slope = velocity • steeper slope = faster velocity • straight line = constant velocity • flat line = 0 velocity (no motion) Calculating Slope Distance (m) 1.

Force = mass x acceleration or or F= ma Force Force- push or pull that one body exerts on another Fundamental Forces • 4 types: 1. gravity 2. electromagnetic 3. weak nuclear 4. strong nuclear • Vary in strength • Act through contact or at a distance Forces • Force Pairs: forces moving in opposite directions • Balanced forces: do not move; push equally on each other • Unbalanced forces: acceleration (movement) in the direction of larger force Force Pair Examples Friction Friction: force that opposes motion between 2 surfaces • Static Friction: nonmoving surfaces • Kinetic Friction: moving surfaces- sliding or rolling (sliding friction is greater than rolling friction) Friction Facts • Necessary for all motion • Rougher surfaces create greater friction • Greater mass creates greater friction • Lubricants reduce friction Newton’s First and Second Laws Chapter 12 Newton’s Laws of Motion • 1st Law of Motion: Law of Inertia • An object at rest will remain at rest; • An object in motion will continue moving at a constant velocity unless acted upon by a net force. Inertia • Objects move only when net force is applied. • Objects maintain state of motion. • Inertia is related to mass. (small mass can be accelerated by small force large mass can be accelerated by large force) Newton’s Laws of Motion • 2nd Law of Motion: The acceleration of an object is directly proportional to the net force acting on it and inversely proportional to its mass. Force = mass x acceleration or or F= ma Newton’s Second Law • For equal forces, large masses accelerate less • Force is measured in newtons (N) • 1N= 1kg x 1m/s2 F m a Practice Problem 1 Zoo keepers lift a stretcher that holds a sedate lion.

More distance Less distance Gravity Quiz 2 Which exerts more gravity, your hand or your pencil ? Gravity Quiz 3 • Would you weigh more on Earth or Jupiter? (Hint: Which planet has the greater mass?) Free Fall Acceleration • Occurs when Earth’s gravity is only force acting on an object • In absence of air resistance, all objects accelerate at same rate • g = 9.8 m/s2 • g = 9.8 m/s2 g = 9.8 m/s2 g = 9.8 m/s2 g = 9.8 m/s2 g = 9.8 m/s2 Air Resistance • Force of air on a moving object which opposes its motion • Aka fluid friction or drag • Depends on objects: - speed - surface area - shape - density Air Resistance (cont’d) • Terminal velocity= maximum velocity reached by a falling object • Reached when… F gravity = F air resistance (no net force) Projectile Motion Projectile• Any object thrown in air • Only acted on by gravity • Follows parabolic path- trajectory • Has horizontal and vertical velocities V oy V ox Projectile Motion (cont’d) • Horizontal Velocity – depends on inertia – remains constant • Vertical Velocity – depends on gravity – accelerates downward at 9.8 m/s2 Projectile Motion Quiz • A moving truck launches a ball vertically (relative to the truck). If the truck maintains a constant horizontal velocity after the launch, where will the ball land (ignore air resistance)? A) In front of the truck B) Behind the truck C) In the truck Answer: C because horizontal and vertical velocities are independent of each other Newton’s Laws of Motion • 3rd Law of Motion: When one object exerts a force on a second object, the second object exerts an equal but opposite force on the first. Newton’s Third Law • Forces always occur in pairs • Forces in a pair do not act on the same object • Equal forces don’t always have equal effects Newton’s Third Law Problem: How can a horse pull a cart if the cart is pulling with equal force back on the horse? Newton’s Third Law Answer: 1. Forces are equal and opposite but are acting on different objects 2. Forces are not balanced 3. The movement of the horse depend on the forces working on the horse.

Solve v=p÷m v =(675kg·m/s)÷(300kg) v = 2.25m/s Conservation of Momentum Law of Conservation of Momentum: • Total momentum of two or more objects before a collision is the same as it was before the collision (momentum is conserved).
