2. Introduction Physics Chapter 1

3. 1.1 Physics: An Introduction • Physics studies anything that can be sensed with our five senses. • Starting point of any technology • Car • Planes • GPS • Computers • Cell phones

4. 1.1 Physics: An Introduction • Model, Theory, Law • Model • A representation of something that is often too difficult (or impossible) to display directly. • It is only accurate under limited situations. • Theory • an explanation for patterns in nature that is supported by scientific evidence and verified multiple times by various groups of researchers. • Law • Uses concise language to describe a generalized pattern in nature that is supported by scientific evidence and repeated experiments. • Often, a law can be expressed in the form of a single mathematical equation.

5. 1.1 Physics: An Introduction • Scientific Method • Can be used to solve many types of problems, not just science • Usually begins with observation and question about the phenomenon to be studied • Next preliminary research is done and hypothesis is developed • Then experiments are performed to test the hypothesis • Finally the tests are analyzed and a conclusion is drawn

6. 1.1 Physics: An Introduction • Classical Physics • Organized and finalized in Renaissance • Good model for • objects moving less than 1% the speed of light and only experiencing weak gravitational fields • objects that are big enough to be seen in microscope and larger • Modern Physics • Relativity • Objects moving fast or experiencing large gravitational fields • Quantum • Submicroscopic objects

7. 1.2 Physical quantities and units • Units • USA uses English system as was used by the British Empire • Rest of world uses SI system (International System or Metric System) • Fundamental Units - Can only be defined by procedure to measure them • Time = second (s) • Distance = meter (m) • Mass = kilogram (kg) • Electric Current = ampere (A) • All other units are combinations of these 4

13. 1.3 Accuracy, Precision, and Significant Figures • Accuracy is how close a measurement is to the correct value for that measurement. • Precision of a measurement system is refers to how close the agreement is between repeated measurements.

14. 1.3 Accuracy, Precision, and Significant Figures Accurate but not precise Precise but not accurate

15. 1.3 Accuracy, Precision, and Significant Figures • The accuracy and precision of a measuring system leads to uncertainty. • Think of length • 450 cm ± 5 cm • The ± 5 cm is the uncertainty • Where is uncertainty in a measurement and is the measurement

16. 1.3 Accuracy, Precision, and Significant Figures • If you combine two or more of the same measurements with addition or subtraction, the % uncertainty remains the same • If you combine two or more of the measurements with multiplication or division, the % uncertainty is the sum of the % uncertainties of the individual measurements

17. 1.3 Accuracy, Precision, and Significant Figures • Significant Figures • Used to reflect uncertainty in measurements • Each measuring device can only measure so accurately • The last digit is always an estimate

18. 1.3 Accuracy, Precision, and Significant Figures • To find significant figures • Ignore placeholder zeros between the decimal point and the first nonzero digit • Count the number of other digits • 0.000000602 • 3 sig figs • 1032000 • 4 sig figs • 1.023 • 4 sig figs

19. 1.3 Accuracy, Precision, and Significant Figures • Rules for combining significant figures • Addition or subtraction • The answer can contain no more decimal places than the least precise measurement. • Multiplication or division • The result should have the same number of significant figures as the quantity having the least significant figures entering into the calculation. • I will accept 3 significant figures for all problems in future assignments.

21. Kinematics Physics Chapter 2
