How Can Forces Affect Objects?


Stacking robots

Stacking Robots

THINK ABOUT THIS??????

  • When the clowns are balanced, is their state of motion constant or changing? Did their speed or direction change?

    2. When the clowns are unbalanced, is their state of motion constant or changing? Did their speed or direction change?


What happens to wilson

What Happens to Wilson?

“Imagine that you are floating in outer space, far from any planet, star, or other mass.

The only thing that you have other than your space suit is your pet rock, Wilson. One

day, you and Wilson have an argument, and you angrily fling him away from you. How

will he travel? Will he ever slow down or come back? Will you ever know the comfort of

holding your pet rock again?”

  • When the clowns are balanced, is their state of motion constant or changing? Did their speed or direction change?

    Balanced Forces= Constant speed AND direction.

    When the clowns are balanced, they are stationary or stay at rest. Speed is zero and there is no change in the direction of the clowns’ motion.

  • When the clowns are unbalanced, is their state of motion constant or changing? Did their speed or direction change?

    Unbalanced Forces= Changing speed OR direction

    The clowns initially speed up in a downward direction, then for a brief moment in time they move at the same speed and direction before they slow down in an upward direction upon making contact with the floor, table or desk.

    3. When the clowns were balanced, was their velocity constant or changing?

    Balanced Forces= Constant velocity

    4. When the clowns were unbalanced, was their velocity constant or changing?

    Unbalanced Forces= Changing velocity


Misconceptions

Misconceptions

True or False?

A force is necessary to keep object moving


How can forces affect objects

Answer: False

Newton’s First Law of Motion states:

Objects in motion stay in motion in a straight line unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.

Outside forces such as friction, gravity, magnetic force, electrical, force, and air resistance slow/stop objects


How can forces affect objects

True or False

If an object is at rest,

no forces are acting upon it


How can forces affect objects

Answer: False

There are many forces acting on it

(gravity, air pressure, etc)

but they are all BALANCED


Explain balanced forces

Explain Balanced Forces


Explain balanced forces1

Explain Balanced Forces

  • When all the forces acting on an object balance each other

  • Balanced forces do not cause a change in motion


Balanced forces

Balanced Forces


Normal force

Normal Force

We call this NORMAL FORCE. The book is said to be at equilibrium since there are no unbalanced forces acting upon the book and it maintains its state of motion (it still sits on the table).


How can forces affect objects

Lets say you are standing on the ground. Since the floor pushes upward on you and gravity is pulling down on you, you are at equilibrium.


Let s say you give that book on the table a push

Let’s say you give that book on the table a push…

The book goes temporarily into motion, but friction from the table and gravity doesn’t allow it to go far.


Explain unbalanced forces

Explain Unbalanced Forces


Explain unbalanced forces1

Explain Unbalanced Forces

  • When all the forces acting on an object are not equal

  • Unbalanced forces cause a change in motion


Describe friction

Describe Friction


Describe friction1

Describe Friction

  • Force that resists motion between two touching surfaces

  • Acts in the opposite direction of the object’s motion

  • Produces heat


Explain centripetal force

Explain Centripetal Force


Explain centripetal force1

Explain Centripetal Force

Centripetal force is directed to the axis of rotation

Makes an object follow a curved path


Free body diagrams

Free-body diagrams

Free-body diagrams are used to show the relative magnitude and direction of all forces acting on an object.
