Chapter 4. Force and Motion

Chapter Goal: To establish a connection between force and motion.

Student Learning Objectives

• To recognize what does and does not constitute a force.

• To identify the specific forces acting on an object.

• To draw an accurate free-body diagram of an object.

• To begin the process of understanding the connection between force and motion.

A force is an interaction between two objects
• A force is a push or a pull on an object.
• If I push a book across a table, the book pushes me back (inanimate objects can exert force!)
• A force is a vector. It has both a magnitude and a direction.
• The force (interaction) has the same magnitude for both me and the book. However the direction of the force on me is opposite to the direction of the force on the book.
A force is an interaction between two objects
• A force on an object requires an agent. The agent is another object
• This is another way of confirming that a force is an interaction between objects. It takes two to tango!
• A force is either a contact force or a long- range force.
• Gravity is the only long-range force we will study this semester. It is an interaction between two objects, but they are not necessarily in contact.
• All other forces (this semester) only exist when the two objects are in contact.
What is the net force on the object? Your answer should include both magnitude and direction (in the form of an angle from the x-axis)

A Short Catalog of Forces - Gravity
• Gravity is a long-range attractive force between two objects.
• In this class, our emphasis is on the interaction between the Earth and objects on or near its surface (the weight force).
• Your text uses W for the weight force.
A Short Catalog of Forces: Tension

Ropes, strings, cables and hooks exert a tensional force. These agents always pull, they never push.

Although it seems strange, the sled exerts a tension force on the rope.

A Short Catalog of Forces - Normal

The normal force is a contact force between 2 surfaces that is perpendicular to the surfaces

A Short Catalog of Forces - friction

The frictional force is a contact force between 2 surfaces that is parallel to the surfaces

A Short Catalog of Forces

Other forces are usually shown as an with an identifying subscript.

You’ve just kicked a rock, and it is now sliding across the ground about 2 meters in front of you. Which of these forces act on the rock?

• Gravity, acting downward
• The normal force, acting upward
• The force of the kick, acting in the  direction of motion
• Friction, acting opposite the direction of  motion
• All of the above

You’ve just kicked a rock, and it is now sliding across the ground about 2 meters in front of you. Which of these forces act on the ball? You may choose more than one answer.

• Gravity, acting downward
• The normal force, acting upward
• The force of the kick, acting in the  direction of motion
• Friction, acting opposite the direction of  motion
• All of the above
• Ans: A, B, and D
Free-body diagrams
• Identify all forces acting on the object.
• Draw a coordinate system. If motion is along an incline, the coordinates system should be tilted relative to true horizontal and true vertical.
• Represent the object as a dot at the origin.
• Draw vectors representing each of the identified forces and label with the appropriate symbol.
Mass

An object’s mass (m) is a measure of the amount of matter that it contains.

The SI unit of mass is the kilogram (kg). The English unit of mass is the slug, which is virtually never used.

The mass of an object does not change unless you add or subtract matter from it.

The mass of an object is the same on any planet and in deep space.

Scales do not measure mass, except for a balance scale, which compares one mass to another.

Weight
• The weight of an object on or above the earth is the gravitational force that the earth exerts on the object (FG or W).
• Since weight is a force, the SI unit of weight is the Newton (N); the English unit is the pound.
• The weight of an object changes on other planets since the gravitational force of other planets are different than that of the earth.
• Scales do not measure weight, at least not directly.
Apparent weight or “what the scale says”
• Scales measure a normal force or a tension force (i.e.hanging scales).
• In most situations, the force measured by the scale is numerically equal to the weight force.
• In accelerating reference frames (e.g. the ever-popular elevator with a scale), the scale reading will differ from the true weight. This is called apparent weight.
• Metric scales assume measurement on earth and are calibrated to read in mass units (kg). American scales read in English force units. It’s a culture thing.
4.7 The Gravitational Force

Newton’s Law of Universal Gravitation

Every particle in the universe exerts an attractive force on every

other particle.

A particle is a piece of matter, small enough in size to be

regarded as a mathematical point.

The force that each exerts on the other is directed along the line

joining the particles.

4.7 The Gravitational Force

For two particles that have masses m1 and m2and are

separated by a distance r, the force has a magnitude

given by:

4.7 The Gravitational Force

If m1 has a mass of 12 kg and m2 has a mass of 25 kg and the

two objects are 1.2 meters apart, what is the gravitational force

between them?

4.7 The Gravitational Force

The gravitational force between 2 objects is usually pretty small, unless one of the object is a planet!

If m1 has a mass of 12 kg and m2 has a mass of 25 kg and the

two objects are twice as far apart as before (i.e. 2.4 m), what is the gravitational force between them? Twice as much? Half as much? Or something else

The figure shows a binary star system. The mass of star 2 is twice the mass of star 1. Compared to , the magnitude of the force is

• one quarter as big.
• half as big.
• the same size.
• twice as big.
• four times as big.

4.7 The Gravitational Force

Definition of Weight

The weight of an object on or above the earth is the gravitational force that the earth exerts on the object.

The weight always acts downwards, toward the center

of the earth.

On or above another astronomical body, the weight is the

gravitational force exerted on the object by that body.

SI Unit of Weight: newton (N)

4.3 Newton’s Second Law of Motion

Newton’s Second Law

An object of mass m, subject to forces F1 , F2 , etc. will undergo an acceleration with a magnitude directly proportional to the net force and inversely proportional to the mass:

The direction of the acceleration is

the same as the direction of the net force.

4.3 Newton’s Second Law of Motion

Newton’s First Law

This is a special case of the 2nd Law. If the net force equals 0, there is no acceleration and the velocity of the object will not change. If it is at rest, it will stay at rest.

• In this case the object is in equilibrium.
• Static equilibrium – object is at rest for a finite period
• Dynamic equilibrium –object is moving at constant velocity.
Problem-Solving Strategy: Equilibrium Problems

If the net force is equal to zero, must the object be at rest? The next example shows the answer to this:

Newton’s 1st Law: Towing a car up a hill

A car with a weight (not mass) of 15,000 N is being towed up a 20° frictionless slope at constant velocity. The tow rope is parallel to the slope surface. What is the tension on the tow rope?

Is this a Newton’s 2nd Law problem (ΣF = ma) or a Newton’s 1st Law problem (ΣF = 0)?

Draw a free body diagram for this problem.

Newton’s 1st Law: Towing a car up a hill

A car with a weight (not mass) of 15,000 N is being towed up a 20° frictionless slope at constant velocity. The tow rope is parallel to the slope surface. What is the tension on the tow rope?

What part of the story indicates that ΣF = 0?

Newton’s 1st Law: Towing a car up a hill

Once the pictorial representation is completed, use Newton’s 1st Law in component form:

T and n have only one non-zero component, but FGhas non-zero components in both x and y directions. How do we write the components of FG in terms of θ ?

Newton’s 1st Law: Towing a car up a hill

Solving the 2nd equation tells us that n = FG cos θ, which is not necessary information for this problem.

Problem-Solving Strategy for Newton’s 2nd Law Problems

Use the problem-solving strategy outlined for Newton’s 1st Law problems to draw the free body diagram and determine known quantities.

Use Newton’s Law in component form to find the values for any individual forces and/or the acceleration.

If necessary, the object’s trajectory (time, velocity, position, acceleration) can be determined by using the equations of kinematics.

Reverse # 2 and 3 if necessary.

Newton’s 2nd Law – Speed of a Towed Car
• Find the acceleration using Newton’s second law in component form.
• Find the velocity using one of the kinematic equations.
• Note that in this problem, the car’s mass, not the weight, is given.
EXAMPLE 6.3 Speed of a towed car

Our pictorial analysis (and common sense) indicate that there is no acceleration along the y-axis.

• The value the scale reads when the object is accelerating or being acted upon by some other force (e.g the buoyant force in water)
• Not equal to the true weight (FG = mg)
• Apparent weight is either a normal force (step on scale) or tension force (hanging scale)
• An object inside an accelerating elevator has the same acceleration as the elevator.
• Acceleration is not a force so don’t include directly on free body diagram.

It takes the elevator in a skyscraper 4.0 s to reach a constant speed of 10.0 m/s. A 60.0 kg passenger gets on at the ground floor. What is her apparent weight during those 4 seconds?

Use the problem-solving strategy (repeated in next slide).

Problem-Solving Strategy for Newton’s 2nd Law Problems

Use Newton’s Law in component form to find the values for any individual forces and/or the acceleration.

If necessary, the object’s trajectory (time, velocity, position, acceleration) can be determined by using the equations of kinematics.

Reverse # 1 and 2 if necessary (Hint: it is!)

Graphical Interpretation of Newton’s Second Law
• Newton’s 2nd Law is the equation of a line with a 0 value for the y-intercept (in this case the F- intercept!).

The following graphs plot net force vs. acceleration for different objects. Rank each situation according to mass. That is, order the situation from largest to smallest mass, using Newton’s Second Law.

Ranking Order from greatest to least mass: F C (A D) B E

(Note this one is slightly different than the example in Exploration 3.

Kinetic Friction

Experiments show that the kinetic friction force is nearly constant and

proportional to the magnitude of the normal force.

where the proportionality constant μk is called the coefficient of kinetic friction.

Static Friction

The box is in static equilibrium, so the static friction must exactly balance the pushing force:

Static friction

An object remains at rest as long as fs < fs max

The object slips when fs = fs max

A static friction force fs > fs max is not physically   possible.

fs max >fk for the same surfaces

where the proportionality constant μs is called the  coefficient of static friction.

A model of friction

“ motion” indicates motion relative to the two surfaces

the max value static friction, fs max occurs at the very instant the object begins to move (which often means 1 nanosecond before, for problem-solving purposes.

for any given materials, μs > μk

Rank order, from largest to smallest, the size of the friction forces to in these five different situations. The box and the floor are made of the same materials in all situations.

Example Problem w tilted axis

A 75-kg snowboarder starts down a 50-m high (not long!), 100 slope with μk = 0.06. Assume he has just started moving, but his starting velocity is essentially zero. What is his speed at the bottom?

Draw the free body diagram (fbd) to determine the forces.

Use Newton’s Law in component form.

Determine the acceleration.

Use kinematics to solve for the final speed.

Example Dynamics Problem w tilted axis

A 75-kg snowboarder starts down a 50-m high, 100 slope, with μk = 0.06. What is his speed at the bottom?

Write Newton’s Law for y-axis values. Is this 2nd Law, or 1st Law (a=0)?

There is one force along the + y axis and one force with a negative y component.

and fk = uk n

and n = mg cos θ

Make sure the cargo doesn’t slide
• A box is in the back of a flatbed truck What is the maximum acceleration the truck can have without the box sliding? Coefficients of friction between truck and box are μs = 0.40 and μk = 0.20. To solve this problem:
• Is the object of interest the box, truck, or both?
• Do the forces on the object of interest include static friction, kinetic friction, both, or neither?

EOC #107

A person is trying to judge whether a picture of mass 1.10 kg is properly positioned by pressing it against a wall. The pressing force is perpendicular to the wall. The coefficient of static friction between picture and wall is 0.660. What is the minimum amount of pressing force required?
