Acceleration

and

Newton’s Second Law of Motion

Mechanics (Classical/Newtonian Mechanics): Study of motion in relation to force and energy, ie, the effects of force and energy on the motion of an object.

Kinematics – Mechanics that describes how objects move, no reference to the force or mass.

Dynamics– Mechanics that deals with force: why objects move.

• Reference frames

• Reference Direction

• Displacement

• Velocity

• Acceleration

When we say a car is moving at 45 km/hr, we usually mean “with respect to the earth” although is is not explicitly stated.

An escalator is moving at 3 m/s relative to the ground. A lady walks on the escalator at 2 m/s relative to the escalator. The lady’s speed relative to the ground is 5 m/s.

• Can use compass directions: North, East, South, West.

• In physics, we use coordinate axes

1-D coordinate system:

• Specify the origin.

• Show where x axis is pointing: to the right is positive direction of x.

• Label the axis with the relevant units.

Reference Direction:2-D coordinate system:

• Specify the origin.

• Show x and y axes. To the right is positive direction of x. Vertically upward is positive y.

• Label the axis with the relevant units.

Average Speed and Average Velocity What is the magnitude of its

Average Speed = (distance traveled)/time taken = d/t

Speed: - specified only by magnitude. It is a scalar quantity.

SI unit = m/s

- always a positive number

Average velocity = (displacement)/time taken

= (x2 – x1)/(t2 – t1) = x/t

Velocity: - specified by both magnitude and direction.

Average acceleration =v/ t

T/F? If the acceleration of an object is zero, it must be at rest.

T/F? If an object is at rest, its acceleration must be zero.

Example is the magnitude of its average velocity if it took 45 min?

Train A moves due east along a straight line with a velocity 8 m/s. Within 7 seconds, it’s velocity increases to 22 m/s. What is its average acceleration?

Train B is moves due east along a straight line at a velocity of 18 m/s. Within 10 s, its velocity drops to 3 m/s. What is its average acceleration?

When an object slows down, we say it is decelerating. In that case, the direction of the acceleration will be opposite to that of the velocity.

Example is the magnitude of its average velocity if it took 45 min?

Is it possible for an object to have a positive velocity at the same time as it has a negative acceleration?

1 - Yes

2 - No

“Yes, because an object can be going forward but at the same time slowing down which would give it a negative acceleration.”
