**Physics:**Motion, Forces and Motion, Forces in Fluids and Work and Machines**Motion 11-1**• An object is in motion if it changes position relative to a reference point • Stationary objects make good reference points**To describe motion accurately and completely, a frame of**reference is necessary. • The answer to “How fast is the butterfly is moving?” depends on which frame of reference you use to measure its motion. • The answer to “ How fast are the train passengers moving?” depends on the frame of reference you use measure their motion. • Choosing a meaningful frame of reference allows you to describe motion in a clear and relevant manner.**Relative Motion**• Whether or not an object is in motion depends on the reference point you choose.**Distance and Displacement**• Distance is the total length of the actual path between two points. Displacement is the length and direction of a straight line between starting and ending points. What is the total distance this person traveled (in blocks)? 7 Blocks What is the total displacement of this person? 5 Blocks Northeast**More on Displacement: Vectors**• Vector quantities that have both a magnitude and a direction**Calculating Speed 11-2**• If you know the distance an object travels in a certain amount of time, you can calculate the speed of the object.**Average Speed**• The speed of most moving objects is not constant**Instantaneous Speed**• Rate at which object is moving at a given instant in time**Velocity**• Speed in a given direction • Velocity is a vector because it has both magnitude and direction • Changes in velocity may be due to changes in speed, changes in direction, or both • A cheetah’s speed may be as fast as 90 km/h but to describe its velocity you must know the direction in which it is moving. • As the sailboat’s direction changes, its velocity also changes, even if its speed stays the same.**Graphing Motion**• You can use distance-versus-time graphs to interpret motion.**Let’s**Review!**Review Questions**1.

Yes, because it can travel very far.**Review Questions**1. Is a moving bus a good reference point from which to measure your position? a. No, because it is often late. b.

A= Vf – Vi time A = 40 m/s – 0 m/s 5 s A = 8 m/s2**Calculating Acceleration**• As a roller-coaster car starts down a slope, its velocity is 4 m/s. But 3 seconds later, its velocity is 22 m/s in the same direction. What is its acceleration? • Read and Understand • What information have you been given? • Initial velocity = 4 m/s • Final velocity = 22 m/s • Time = 3 s**Calculating Acceleration**• As a roller-coaster car starts down a slope, its velocity is 4 m/s. But 3 seconds later, its velocity is 22 m/s in the same direction. What is its acceleration? • Plan and Solve • What quantity are you trying to calculate? • The acceleration of the roller-coaster car = __ • What formula contains the given quantities and the unknown quantity? • Acceleration = (Final velocity - Initial velocity)/Time • Perform the calculation. • Acceleration = (22 m/s - 4 m/s)/3 s = 18 m/s/3s • Acceleration = 6 m/s2 • The acceleration is 6 m/s2 down the slope .**Calculating Acceleration**• Practice Problem • A falling raindrop accelerates from 10 m/s to 30 m/s in 2 seconds. What is the raindrop’s acceleration? • (30 m/s - 10 m/s) ÷ 2 seconds = 10 m/s2**Calculating Acceleration**• Practice Problem • A certain car can accelerate from rest to 27 m/s in 9 seconds. Find the car’s acceleration. • (27 m/s - 0 m/s) ÷ 9 s = 27 m/s ÷ 9 s = 3 m/s2**Graphing Acceleration**• You can use both a speed-versus-time graph and a distance-versus-time graph to analyze the motion of an accelerating object.**Mr. Edmonds!!**• http://youtu.be/4CWlNoNpXCc**What is a force?**• A push or pull that acts on an object • Is a vector quantity • Described by its magnitude and by the direction in which it acts • Arrow represents direction • Magnitude unit = Newton (N) • 1N = 1 kg*m/s²**Net Force**• Often there is more than one force acting on an object at the same time • Pushing a car that’s run out of gas • The result is net force, a combination of all the forces • Net force determines whether an object moves and in which direction • Sometimes the net force is zero**Combining Force Vectors**• The strength and direction of the individual forces determine the net force.**Unbalanced Forces**• Unbalanced forces acting on an object result in a net force and cause a change in the object’s velocity.**Balanced Forces**• Balanced forces acting on an object do not change the object’s velocity.**Friction**• A force 2 surfaces exert on each other when they rub against each other • Acts as an unbalanced force to slow motion down • The strength of the force of friction depends on the types of surfaces involved and how hard the surfaces push together • 4 types of friction**1) Static Friction**• Acts on objects that are not moving • You must exert a force greater than the force of static friction to make the object move**2) Sliding Friction**• Occurs when two solid surfaces slide over each other**3) Rolling Friction**• Occurs when an object rolls across a surface • Rolling friction is less than sliding friction for similar surfaces**4) Fluid Friction**• Occurs when a solid object moves through a fluid, such as air, water, oil, etc. • Fluid friction is usually less than sliding friction**Gravity**• Force that pulls towards the center of the earth • Newton realized that gravity acts everywhere, not just on earth • Called the Law of Universal Gravitation • Any 2 objects in the universe attract each other**Gravity Between Objects**• The force of gravity between objects increases with greater mass and decreases with greater distance.**Mass and Weight**• Mass is how much matter is in an object • The gravitational force exerted on a person or object at the surface of a planet is known as weight. • Weight = Mass x Acceleration due to gravity Acceleration due to gravity at Earth’s surface = 9.8 m/s2**Free Fall**• If the only force acting on the object is gravity, it is said to be in free fall • An object in free fall is accelerating because of the force of gravity at a rate of 9.8 m/s/s • This means that every second an object is free falling, it increases its velocity 9.8 m/s • Is this affected by mass? • If dropped from the same height at the same time, will a heavier object fall faster?**Free Fall**• No! If there are no other forces to consider, then the objects will fall at the same rate, regardless of mass.**Air resistance**• A type of fluid friction that acts on objects falling through the air • An upward force acting on a falling object
