Chapter 2 : MOTION

p.16 in your book!

Aristotle (384-322 BC)

Objects have a proper “place” And strive to get there.

- NATURAL MOTION - No force required
ex: boulder “falls down”

smoke “goes up”

Thought heavier objects fall faster than lighter objects

UNNATURAL MOTION- Requires force

EX: push a book across table

Galileo-

- Objects drop at same rate (except for air friction)
“Leaning Tower of Pisa “ experiment

- If no friction…no forces required to keep moving objects moving. EX:Satellites

As a ball rolls down an incline it speeds up

- up incline,slows
- Reduced angle, ball goes farther

Objects at rest tend to remain at rest.

Moving objects tend to remain moving.

- How fast something is moving: the rate at which distance is covered.
Speed= Distance

Time

EX: mph (mi/hr) , km/hr, cm/hr

/ = “per” = divided by ex: 100km/hr

- Speed something has at any instant
- Ex: speedometer

Average speed= total distance covered

time interval

Av sp= Total distance covered = 100km =50km

time interval 2hrs hr

Trip could have variations in speed -average speed!

Av speed = Total distance covered

Time interval

Av speed = 2.0km / 40 min

= 0.05 km /min

But… stopped for traffic,tied shoe,ran across the road… YOU GET THE IDEA!!

Velocity – includes speed & direction

ex: 60km/ hr North

This is a Vector Quantity- includes direction & magnitude.

What is the difference between constant speed & velocity?

- Constant speed- doesn’t speed up or slow down.
- Changing velocity because direction is changing.

V = D/T

D = V x T

T = D/V

V = velocity, D = distance, T=time

See board:

- Speed vs. Velocity
- What is Slope?
- What is ______ doing?
- Car “a”
- Car “b”
- Car “c”
- Car “d”

- Av speed of bike that travels
150 m in 15 secs

- V = D / T
- V = 150 m /15 s
- V = 10m/s

- ) How far did you go?
- D=VxT
3km/hr • 1 hr

D = 3km

b. At this rate, how far in 2 hrs? 10 hrs?

3km/hr • 2 hr = 6km

3km/hr • 10 hr = 30km

- Right now :Your speed is zero relative to Earth,
But.. 30 km / s relative to the sun.

- P. 22 green box
Newton’s 1st Law “THE LAW OF INERTIA”

- Every object continues in a state of rest, or in a state of motion in a straight line at a constant speed, unless it is compelled to change that state by forces exerted upon it.
“the table cloth trick”

“penny & index card inquiry”

See Board

Newton (N) – unit for force

An arrow represents Force as vector quantities.

- Arrows length represents magnitude (how much) and direction (which way)

- 12 N + 8 N = _____
- -20 N + 3 N = _____
- 7 N + 8 N = _____
- 15 N - 10 N = _____

Spring scale & block example on board

Attracted to the Earth with a force of __ N.

Weight of object (downward force)= tension in rope (upward force).

The block is at rest, so net force is Zero.

∑ - sum

F- force

Objects at rest have equal & opposite forces acting on them.

- Sum of upward vectors= sum of downward vectors
- Static Equilibrium

Support Force or “normal force”.- the upward force

EX: book on desk : weight & gravity

∑ F = 0

What is the net force on a bathroom scale when a 110 lb person stands on it?

A: Zero. Scale is at rest. Scale reads support force which has same magnitude as weight.

Equilibrium- state of no change.

An object moving at constant velocity is in dynamic equilibrium.

- Give an example of something moving when a net force of zero acts on it?
- If we push a crate at a constant velocity, how do we know how much friction acts on the crate compared to our pushing force?
- Harry the painter swings from his painter’s chair. His weight is 500 N and the rope has a breaking point of 300 N. Why doesn’t the rope break when he is supported as shown left on the board

- Harry the painter swings from his painter’s chair. His weight is 500 N and the rope has a breaking point of 300 N. Why doesn’t the rope break when he is supported as shown left below? One day he decides to anchor his chair to a nearby flagpole – why did Harry end up taking vacation early?
