A force is a push or pull. An object at rest needs a force to get it moving; a moving object needs a force to change its velocity. The Laws of Motion**Newton’s First Law**If no external force acts Newton’s first law is often called the law of inertia. Every object continues in its state of rest, or of uniform velocity in a straight line, as long as no net force acts on it. The Laws of Motion**Newton’s First Law**When you sit on a chair, the resultant force on you is A) zero. B) up. C) down. D) depending on your weight. The Laws of Motion**Newton’s Second Law**Newton’s second law is the relation between acceleration and force. Acceleration is proportional to force and inversely proportional to mass. Force is a vector, so SF = ma is true along each coordinate axis.

Find the velocity of the block after time Dt. vo = 0 Dt = 5 s F = 20 N v= ? F m = 5 kg m The Laws of Motion**Newton’s Second Law (Problem)**F What average force is required to stop an 1100 kg car in 8.0 s if the car is travelling at 95 km/h? Newton’s 2nd Law The Laws of Motion**Newton’s Second Law**A net force F accelerates a mass m with an acceleration a. If the same net force is applied to mass 2m, then the acceleration will be A) 4a. B) 2a. C) a/2 D) a/4 The Laws of Motion**Newton’s Second Law (Problem)**Tmax a m mg The cable supporting a 2,125 kg elevator has a maximum strength of 21,750 N. What maximum upward acceleration can it give the elevator without breaking? Newton’s 2nd Law The Laws of Motion**Newton’s Second Law (Problem)**a How much tension must a rope withstand if it is used to accelerate a 1200 kg car vertically upward at 0.80 m/s2. Newton’s 2nd Law The Laws of Motion**Newton’s Second Law**F F R Universal Gravitational Constant Gravitational Force: Gravitational Force is the mutual force of attraction between any two objects in the Universe. m M The Laws of Motion**Newton’s Second Law**The gravitational force between two objects is proportional to A) the distance between the two objects. B) the square of the distance between the two objects. C) the product of each objects mass. D) the square of the product of each objects mass. The Laws of Motion**Newton’s Second Law**Two objects attract each other gravitationally. If the distance between their centers is cut in half, the gravitational force A) is cut to one fourth. B) is cut in half. C) doubles. D) quadruples The Laws of Motion**Newton’s Second Law**Two objects, with masses m1 and m2, are originally a distance r apart. The magnitude of the gravitational force between them is F. The masses are changed to 2m1 and 2m2, and the distance is changed to 4r. What is the magnitude of the new gravitational force? A) F/16 B) F/4 C) 16F D) 4F The Laws of Motion**Newton’s Second Law**F F “g” in terms of G g m R M The Laws of Motion**Newton’s Second Law**Mass is the measure of inertia of an object. In the SI system, mass is measured in kilograms. Mass is not weight: Mass is a property of an object. Weight is the force exerted on that object by gravity. If you go to the moon, whose gravitational acceleration is about 1/6 g, you will weigh much less. Your mass, however, will be the same. Gravitational mass mg mg = mi Inertial mass mi The Laws of Motion**Newton’s Second Law**m Weight is the force exerted on an object by gravity. Close to the surface of the Earth, where the gravitational force is nearly constant, the weight is: Weight = mg The Laws of Motion**Newton’s Second Law**Mass and weight A) both measure the same thing. B) are exactly equal. C) are two different quantities. D) are both measured in kilograms. The Laws of Motion**Newton’s Second Law**A stone is thrown straight up. At the top of its path, the net force acting on it is A) equal to its weight. B) greater than its weight. C) greater than zero, but less than its weight. D) instantaneously equal to zero. The Laws of Motion**Newton’s Third Law**F1 F2 Whenever one object exerts a force on a second object, the second exerts an equal force in the opposite direction on the first. Action/Reaction Forces The Laws of Motion**Newton’s Third Law**N mg An object at rest must have no net force on it. If it is sitting on a table, the object exerts a downward force mg on the surface of the table. m The surface of the table exerts an upward force on the block, called the normal force. It is exactly as large as needed to balance the force from the object. The Laws of Motion**Newton’s Third Law**F If an upward force F is applied to the block, the magnitude of the normal force is N mg The Laws of Motion**Newton’s Third Law**F If a downward force F is applied to the block, the magnitude of the normal force is N m mg The Laws of Motion**Newton’s Third Law**Action-reaction forces A) sometimes act on the same object. B) always act on the same object. C) may be at right angles. D) always act on different objects.

B) the force on the truck is equal to the force on the car. C) the force on the truck is smaller than the force on the car. D) the truck did not slow down during the collision.
