**Chapter 1-7**MASTER NOTES MASTER CLASS NOTES FOR Chapter 1,2,3,4, & 7**Chapter 1**The Science of Physics Table of Contents Chapter 1 The Science of Physics Chapter 2 Motion in One Dimension Chapter 3 Two- Dimensional Motion and Vectors Chapter 4 Forces and the Laws of Motion Chapter 7 Rotational Motion and the Law of Gravity**Section 1 What is Physics**Chapter 1 The Topics of Physics • Physics is simply the study of the physical world.**Section 1 What is Physics**Chapter 1 The areas of Physics 1. Mechanics- The study of motion and its causes. • Falling objects, friction, weight, spinning objects. 2. Thermodynamics – The study of heat and temperature. • Melting and Freezing processes, engines, refrigerators. 3. Vibration and Wave Phenomena – The study of specific types of repetitive motion. • Springs, pendulums, sound**Section 1 What is Physics**Chapter 1 The areas of Physics (cont) 4. Optics – The study of light. • Mirrors, lenses, color, astronomy 5. Electromagnetism – The study of electricity, magnetism, and light. • Electrical charge, circuitry, permanent magnets, electromagnets. 6. Relativity – The study of particles moving at any speed, including very high speed. • Particle collisions, particle accelerators, nuclear energy.**Section 1 What is Physics**Chapter 1 The areas of Physics (cont.) 7. Quantum Mechanics – The study of submicroscopic particles. • The atom and its parts**Chapter 1**Types of observations • Qualitative- descriptive, but not true measurements • Hot • Large • Quantitative- describe with numbers and units • 100C • 15 meters**Section 1 What is Physics**Chapter 1 The Scientific Method • Thescientific methodis a way to ask and answer scientific questions by making observations and doing experiments. • Steps of the scientific : • Observation (Ask a Question) • Collect Data (Do Background Research) • Construct a Hypothesis (Educated guess) • Test Your Hypothesis by Doing Experiments • Analyze Your Data and Draw a Conclusion • The conclusion is only valid if it can be verified by other people. • Communicate Your Results**Section 1 What is Physics?**Chapter 1 The Scientific Method**Section 1 What is Physics**Chapter 1 The Scientific Method (cont) • System – A set of items or interactions considered a distinct physical entity for the purpose of study. • Decide what to study and eliminate everything else that has minimal or no effect on the problem. • Draw a diagram of what remains (Model) • Models – A replica or description designed to show the structure or workings of an object, system, or concept. • Models help guide experimental design**Section 1 What is Physics?**Chapter 1 The System**Section 1 What is Physics?**Chapter 1 The Scientific Model**Section 1 What is Physics**Chapter 1 The Scientific Method (cont) • Hypothesis – A reasonable explanation for observations, one that can be tested with additional experiments. • The hypothesis must be tested in a controlled experiment. • Controlled Experiment- Only one variable at a time is changed to determine what influences the phenomenon you are observing.**Section 2 Measurements in Experiments**Chapter 1 Numbers As Measurements • Numerical measurements in science contain the value (number) and Dimension. • Dimension is the physical quantity being measured (length, mass, time, temperature, electric current) • Each dimension is measured using units and prefixes from the SI system. • The dimension must match the unit. (ex. If you are measuring length, use the meter(m), not the kilogram(kg)**Section 2 Measurements in Experiments**Chapter 1 • SI is the standard measurement system for science. • Used so that scientists can communicate with the same language. • There are seven base units. They are: • Meter(m) – length • kilogram(kg) – Mass • Second(s) – Time • Kelvin(K) – Temperature • Ampere(A) – current • Mole(mol) – amount of substance • Candela(cd) – luminous intensity**Section 2 Measurements in Experiments**Chapter 1 • Common Metric Prefixes: -See handout or visit reference section of website -Be able to convert between any prefix and another.**How good are the measurements?**• Scientists use two word to describe how good the measurements are: • Accuracy- how close the measurement is to the actual value. • Precision- how well can the measurement be repeated.**Differences**• Accuracy can be true of an individual measurement or the average of several. • Problems with accuracy are due to error • Precision requires several measurements before anything can be said about it. • Precision describes the limitation of the measuring instrument.**Percent Error**• Percent error = (Experimental Value – Accepted value) x 100 Accepted Value • Percent error can be negative.**Accurate?**No Precise? Yes**Accurate?**Yes Precise? Yes**No**Precise? Maybe? Accurate?**Accurate?**Yes Precise? We cant say!**Significant Figures**Scientific Notation Accuracy and Precision**1**2 3 4 5 Significant figures (sig figs) • How many numbers mean anything. • When we measure something, we can (and do) always estimate between the smallest marks.**Significant figures (sig figs)**• The better marks the better we can estimate. • Scientist always understand that the last number measured is actually an estimate. 1 2 3 4 5**142**141 Significant figures (sig figs) • The measurements we write down tell us about the ruler we measure with • The last digit is between the lines • What is the smallest mark on the ruler that measures 142.13 cm?**Sig figs.**• How many sig figs in the following measurements? • 458 g • 4085 g • 4850 g • 0.0485 g • 0.004085 g • 40.004085 g • 405.0 g • 4050 g • 0.450 g • 4050.05 g • 0.0500060 g**Rounding rules**• Look at the number behind the one you’re rounding. • If it is 0 to 4 don’t change it. • If it is 5 to 9 make it one bigger. • Round 45.462 to four sig figs. • to three sig figs. • to two sig figs. • to one sig figs. 45.46 45.5 45 50**Scientific notation**• All non-zero digits in scientific notation are significant figures. • Any ending zero will be after the decimal point to be significant • 1.20 x 103 • Sometimes you must write in scientific notation to use the correct sig figs.**Watch the Sig Figs**• When rounding, you don’t change the size of the number. • You should end up with a number about the same size. • Use place holders- they’re not significant. • Round 15253 to 3 sig figs • Round 0.028965 to 3 sig figs 15300 0.0290**Atlantic**Pacific Present Absent If the decimal point is absent, start at the Atlantic (right), find the first non zero, and count all the rest of the digits 230000 1750**Atlantic**Pacific Present Absent If the decimal point is PRESENT, start at the Pacific (left), find the first non zero, and count all the rest of the digits 0.045 1.2300**Using your calculatorwith scientific notation**• EE and EXP button stand for x 10 to the • 4.5 x 10-4 • push 4.5 • push either EXP or EE • push 4 +/- or -4 • see what your display says.**Practice these problems**• (4.8 x 10 5 ) x (6.7 x 10-6) • Remember when you multiply you add exponents • 106x 10-4 • When you divide you subtract exponents. • (6.8 x 10 -6) • (3.2 x 10 4)**Adding and Subtracting**• You can’t add or subtract numbers until they are to the same power of ten. • Your calculator does this automatically. • (4.8 x 10 5 ) + (6.7 x 106) • (6.8 x 10 -6) - (3.2 x 10-5) • Remember- standard form starts with a number between 1 and 10 to start.**Adding and subtracting with sig figs**• The last sig fig in a measurement is an estimate. • Your answer when you add or subtract can not be better than your worst estimate. • have to round it to the least place of the measurement in the problem.**27.93**+ 6.4 27.93 27.93 + 6.4 6.4 For example • First line up the decimal places Then do the adding.. Find the estimated numbers in the problem. 34.33 This answer must be rounded to the tenths place.**Practice**• 4.8 + 6.8765 • 520 + 94.98 • 0.0045 + 2.113 • 500 -126 • 6.0 x 103 - 3.8 x 102 • 6.0 x 10-2 - 3.8 x 10-3 • 5.33 x 1022 - 3.8 x 1021**Multiplication and Division**• Rule is simpler • Same number of sig figs in the answer as the least in the question • 3.6 x 653 • 2350.8 • 3.6 has 2 s.f. 653 has 3 s.f. • answer can only have 2 s.f. • 2400**Multiplication and Division**• Same rules for division. • practice • 4.5 / 6.245 • 4.5 x 6.245 • 9.8764 x .043 • 3.876 / 1980 • 16547 / 710**Measuring**• The numbers are only half of a measurement. • It is 10 long. • 10 what? • Numbers without units are meaningless. • How many feet in a yard? • A mile? • A rod?**The Metric System**• Easier to use because it is a decimal system. • Every conversion is by some power of 10. • A metric unit has two parts. • A prefix and a base unit. • prefix tells you how many times to divide or multiply by 10.**Base Units**• Length - meter - more than a yard - m • Mass - grams - about a raisin - g • Time - second - s • Temperature - Kelvin or ºCelsiusK or ºC • Energy - Joules- J • Volume - Liter - half of a two liter bottle- L • Amount of substance - mole - mol**Prefixes**• kilo k 1000 times • deci d 1/10 • centi c 1/100 • milli m 1/1000 • micro μ1/1000000 • nano n 1/1000000000 • kilometer - about 0.6 miles • centimeter - less than half an inch • millimeter - the width of a paper clip wire**Volume**• calculated by multiplying L x W x H • Liter the volume of a cube 1 dm (10 cm) on a side • 1L = 1 dm3 • so 1 L = 10 cm x 10 cm x 10 cm • 1 L = 1000 cm3 • 1/1000 L = 1 cm3 • 1 mL = 1 cm3**Volume**• 1 L about 1/4 of a gallon - a quart • 1 mL is about 20 drops of water or 1 sugar cube**Mass**• 1 gram is defined as the mass of 1 cm3 of water at 4 ºC. • 1000 g = 1000 cm3 of water • 1 kg = 1 L of water
