Notes – 30Oct2014

Pappalardo – Science Gr8

Pe ke pe etc copy
PE  KE  PE, etc. (copy)

  • Potential Energy (PE) = stored energy an object/material has due to its position, condition, or chemical composition

    • Think: stretched rubber band (elastic PE), height above ground (gravitational PE), or the energy stored in chemical bonds (chemical PE – like in food!)

  • Kinetic Energy (KE) = the energy of moving objects

    • Depends on MASS and SPEED/VELOCITY

    • Like momentum, it can be transferred between objects

    • Think: Newton’s Cradle, bowling, car crashes

Newton s laws again copy
Newton’s Laws (again) (copy)

  • Newton’s 1st Law of Motion: the law of inertia

    • Objects at rest tend to stay at rest…

    • Objects in motion tend to stay in motion (in a straight line, at a constant speed)…

    • UNLESS outside forces act on the object (a push, a pull, gravity, friction, air resistance, etc.)

  • Newton’s 2nd Law of Motion: F = ma

    • Force (Newtons) = Mass (kg) x Acceleration (m/s2)

    • The more massive something is, the more force it will take to accelerate it in any direction!

    • Think: it takes more force to stop or start a real car than it does to play with a toy car!

Newton s laws again copy1
Newton’s Laws (again) (copy)

  • Newton’s 3rd Law of Motion: Action & Reaction

    • For every action, there is an equal – but opposite – reaction

    • Think: pushing off a skateboard, hitting a ball with a baseball bat, Teddy & Matthew or Nat & Lowen on scooters 

Work copy
Work (copy)

  • Work is done only when a force is exerted over a distance

    • Think: lifting books up, pushing a cart, pulling on a wagon

    • Work (Joules) = Force (Newtons) x Distance (meters)

  • Power is the amount of work done in a period of time

    • Think: lifting weights quickly instead of slowly

    • Power (Watts) = Work (Joules) ÷ Time (Seconds)

Simple machines copy
Simple Machines (copy)

  • Inclined Plane = a slope that does not move (ramp)

  • Wedge = two sloping sides that meet at a point (axe blade)

  • Screw = inclined plane wrapped around a cylinder (screw)

  • Wheel & Axle = a wheel on a shaft, or axle (steering wheel)

  • Pulley = a rope that fits into a grooved wheel (used to raise and lower flags, for example)

Simple machines copy1
Simple Machines (copy)

  • Lever = rigid bar that turns around a fixed [fulcrum] point

    • 1st Class:

      • Fulcrum in the middle between the input & output forces

      • Think: seesaws, pliers, oars, soda can tabs

    • 2nd Class:

      • Output force is between the input force and fulcrum

      • Think: wheelbarrows, nutcrackers, bottle openers

    • 3rd Class:

      • Input force is between the fulcrum and output force

      • Think: shovels, brooms, fishing rods, baseball bats, toothbrushes, tweezers, golf clubs, rakes, human forearms

Compound machines copy
Compound Machines (copy)

  • Compound Machines = two or more simple machines working together

  • Think: Gears (wheel & axle with teeth)

  • Think:

    • pencil sharpeners (gears, levers, wedges)

    • Scissors (wedges, levers)

    • Axes (wedges, levers)

    • Roller coasters, Ferris wheels, bicycles
