Chapter 4

Forces and Mass

does not apply for

very tiny objects (< atomic sizes)

objects moving near the speed of light

Classical Mechanics
If the net force SF exerted on an object is zero the object continues in its original state of motion. That is, if SF = 0, an object at rest remains at rest and an object moving with some velocity continues with the same velocity.

Contrast with Aristotle!

Newton’s First Law
Usually a push or pull

Vector

Either contact or field force

Forces
Types

Strong nuclear force

Electromagnetic force

Weak nuclear force

Gravity

Fundamental (Field) Forces

Nuclear force: binds protons and neutronsby exchanging pions

Strong Nuclear Force
Electromagnetic Forces
• Opposites attract, like-signs repel
• Electric forces bind electrons in atoms
• Magnetic forces arise from moving charges
Attractive force between any two bodies

Proportional to both masses

Inversely proportional to square of distance

Gravity
A measure of the resistance of an object to changes in its motion due to a force

Scalar

SI units are kg

Mass
SI unit is Newton (N)

US Customary unit is pound (lb)

1 N = 0.225 lb

Units of Force
Single isolated force cannot exist

For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction

Force on “1” due to “2”

Newton’s Third Law
Newton’s Third Law cont.
• F12 is action force F21 is reaction force
• You can switch action <-> reaction
• Action & reaction forces act on different objects
Define the OBJECT (free body)
• Newton’s Law uses the forces acting ON object
• n and Fg act on object
• n’ and Fg’ act on other objects
Objects behave as particles

ignore rotational motion (for now)

Consider only forces acting ON object

neglect reaction forces

Assumptions for F=ma
Example 4.1a

A Ford Pinto is parked in a parking lot

There is no net force on the Pinto

A) True

B) False

Example 4.1b

A Ford Pinto is parked in a parking lot

The contact force acting on the Pinto from the parking lot surface ______________ .

A) Points upwards

B) Is zero

C) Points downward

Example 4.1c

A Ford Pinto drives down a highway on the moon at constant velocity (where there is no air resistance)

The Pinto’s acceleration is __________

A) Less than zero

B) Equal to zero

C) Greater than zero

Example 4.1d

A Ford Pinto drives down a highway on the moon at constant velocity (where there is no air resistance)

The force acting on the Pinto from the contact with the highway is vertical.

A) True

B) False

Strings, ropes and Pulleys

Gravity

Normal forces

Friction

Springs (later)

Mechanical Forces
Force from rope points AWAY from object

Magnitude of the force is tension

Tension does not change when going over frictionless pulley

Some Rules for Ropes and Pulleys
Example 4.2

a) Find acceleration

b) Find T, the tension above the bowling ball

c) Find T3, the tension in the rope between the pails

d) Find force ceiling must exert on pulley

a) a = g/6 = 1.635 m/s2b) T= 57.2 Nc) T3=24.5 Nd) Fpulley=2T = 114.5 N

Example 4.3c

2) Which statements are correct?Assume the objects are static.

A) Less than

B) Equal to

C) Greater than

A) Less than

B) Equal to

C) Greater than

Example 4.4

Given that Mlight = 25 kg, find all three tensions

T3 = 245.3 N, T1 = 147.4 N, T2 = 195.7 N

Inclined Planes
• Choose x along the incline and y perpendicular to incline
• Replace force of gravity with its components
Example 4.5

Find the acceleration and the tension

a = 4.43 m/s2, T= 53.7 N

M

Example 4.6

Find M such that the box slides at constant v

M=15.6 kg

RESISTIVE force between object and neighbors or the medium

Examples:

Sliding a box

Air resistance

Rolling resistance

Forces of Friction
Parallel to surface, opposite toother forces

~ independent of the area of contact

Depends on the surfaces in contact

Sliding Friction
Static Friction, ƒs
• ms is coefficient of static friction
• N is the normal force

f

F

Kinetic Friction, ƒk
• mk is coefficient of kinetic friction
• Friction force opposes F
• n is the normal force

f

F

Example 4.7

The man pushes/pulls with a force of 200 N. Thechild and sled combo has a mass of 30 kg and the coefficient of kinetic friction is 0.15. For each case:What is the frictional force opposing his efforts?

What is the acceleration of the child?

f=59 N, a=3.80 m/s2 / f=29.1 N, a=4.8 m/s2

Example 4.8

Given m1 = 10 kg and m2 = 5 kg:

a) What value of ms would stop the block from sliding?

b) If the box is sliding and mk = 0.2, what is the acceleration?

c) What is the tension of the rope?

a) ms = 0.5 b) a=1.96 m/s2 c) 39.25 N

Example 4.9

What is the minimum ms required to prevent a sled from slipping down a hill of slope 30 degrees?

ms = 0.577

Other kinds of friction
• Air resistance, F ~ Area  v2
• Rolling resistance, F ~ v

Terminal velocity:

Example 4.9

An elevator falls with acceleration a = 8.0 m/s2. If a 200-lb person stood on a bathroom scale during the fall, what would the scale read?

36.9 lbs

Example 4.10

You are calibrating an accelerometer so that you can measure the steady horizontal acceleration of a car by measuring the angle a ball swings backwards.

If M = 2.5 kg and the acceleration, a = 3.0 m/s2:a) At what angle does the ball swing backwards?

b) What is the tension in the string?

q =17 degT= 25.6 N
