MSTC Physics 2

Chapter 7 Section 6

johannes kepler
Johannes Kepler
  • Formulated 3 empirical laws from observational data gathered over a 20 year period by Tycho Brahe
  • Laws were initially applied only to Mars
  • First 2 laws announced in 1609
  • 3rd law announced 10 years later
johannes kepler1
Johannes Kepler
  • Took Kepler 15 years to derive his laws from observed data
  • Today they can be derived theoretically in a page or two of calculations
  • Laws apply to planets and any 2 body system composed of a body revolving about a much more massive body
kepler s first law
Kepler’s First Law
  • Law of orbits
  • Planets move in elliptical orbits, with the Sun at one of the focal points
  • In reality, most of the planets orbit in a path closer to a circle than an ellipse
kepler s second law
Kepler’s Second Law
  • Law of areas
  • A line from the sun to a planet sweeps out equal areas in equal lengths of time
  • Tells us that the orbital speed of a planet varies in different parts of its orbit
  • Speed is greater when it is closer to the sun
kepler s third law
Kepler’s Third Law
  • Law of periods
  • The square of the orbital period of a planet is directly proportional to the cube of the average distance of the planet from the Sun; that is, T2 α r3
  • Can we derive it?

  • Why was it important to make sure that the stopper was traveling in a horizontal circle?
  • to make sure we had uniform circular motion
vertical circles
Vertical Circles
  • A small sphere of mass m is attached to the end of a cord of length R, which rotates under the influence of the gravitational force in a vertical circle about a fixed point. Determine the tension in the cord at various locations.
sample problem
Sample Problem

A car of mass m passes over a bump in a road that follows the arc of a circle of radius R. What force does the road exert on the car as the car passes the highest point of the bump if the car travels at a speed v? What is the maximum speed the car can have as it passes this highest point before losing contact with the road?
