12: Lesson Electric Potential Energy &amp; Voltage Gravitational Potential Energy To better understand electric potential energy it is a good idea to first review gravitational potential energy and figure out similarities between them. Understanding the parallels between (seemingly) unrelated things in physics is actually one of the best ways to learn physics. According to Newtons Second Law, if a force acts...

Lesson 13: Vectors in One DimensionUp to this point we have been focusing on the number crunching sort of questions you can do in physics. In this chapter the focus will start to be shifted toward more complicated problems that might notalways be solve

Lesson 13: Voltage in a Uniform FieldMost of the time if we are doing experiments with electric fields, we use parallel plates to ensure thatthe field is uniform (the same everywhere). This carries over to our study of voltage. If we use parallel plate
Aarhus Universitet, Handels- og IngeniørHøjskolen - PHYSICS - 20339841
Lesson 14: Vectors in Two DimensionsTwo dimensional problems are a little tougher, because we are no longer just lining up collinear vectorsand doing quick math. Instead, we need to pay attention to how the vectors form a more complex (but not verycom
Aarhus Universitet, Handels- og IngeniørHøjskolen - PHYSICS - 20339841
Lesson 21: Free Body DiagramsFree Body DiagramsWe will need a way to organize forces that are acting on a particular object. The easiest way to do this isby using a free body diagram. A free body diagram is just a simple sketch of the object showing a
Aarhus Universitet, Handels- og IngeniørHøjskolen - PHYSICS - 20339841
Lesson 22: Net ForceThe net force is the vector sum of all the forces acting on anobject. If the forces are parallel we can just add themtogether as positive and negative forces. If the forces are at an angle we have to add them ascomponents of vect
Aarhus Universitet, Handels- og IngeniørHøjskolen - PHYSICS - 20339841
Lesson 23: Newton's First Law (Inertia)Newtons Laws of Motion, as written in his book the Principia, are actually very difficult to read. At the time, Newton didnt care too much about the readability of his book. He just wanted toget the stuff put down
Aarhus Universitet, Handels- og IngeniørHøjskolen - PHYSICS - 20339841
Lesson 24: Newton's Second Law (Motion)To really appreciate Newtons Laws, it sometimes helps to see how they build on each other. The First Law describes what will happen if there is no force. The Second Law describes what will happen if there is a for
Aarhus Universitet, Handels- og IngeniørHøjskolen - PHYSICS - 20339841
Lesson 25: Newton's Third Law (Action-Reaction)Newton came up with one more law when he started thinking about the interaction of objects. He had already talked about what happens when there is no force (1st Law). He then talked about what happens when
Aarhus Universitet, Handels- og IngeniørHøjskolen - PHYSICS - 20339841
Lesson 26: FrictionFriction is a force that always exists between any two surfaces in contact with each other. There is no such thing as a perfectly frictionless environment. Even in deep space, bits of micrometeorites will hit a moving object, causing
Aarhus Universitet, Handels- og IngeniørHøjskolen - PHYSICS - 20339841
Lesson 27a: Torque (AP Only)Torque BasicsTorque is a concept that is very closely related to the ideas we've been developing about force.Just like force is a push or a pull on an object, torque is aWe will only discuss rigid objects in ourtwist.stud

Lesson 27: Gravity on Inclined PlanesYou need to be especially careful when you are doing problems involving gravity pulling somethingdown a slope. The physics involved is considerably more complex than it might first seem, mostly becauseeverything is
Aarhus Universitet, Handels- og IngeniørHøjskolen - PHYSICS - 20339841
Lesson 29: Newton's Law of Universal GravitationLet's say we start with the classic apple on the head version of Newton's work. Newton started with the idea that since the Earth is pulling on the apple, the apple must also bepulling on the Earth (Newto

Lesson 42b: First Law of ThermodynamicsThe First Law of Thermodynamics can be stated in several ways.At this point in the course we need to focus on what it says about energy, and gases in thekinetic theory of ideal gases.We will look at how adding he
Aarhus Universitet, Handels- og IngeniørHøjskolen - PHYSICS - 20339841
Lesson 42c: PV DiagramsFrom the last section, you were probably wondering what happens when we do something like add heatto a sealed cylinder.This sounds like a pretty dangerous idea if you think back to the WHMIS training you hadabout compressed gas

Lesson 56: Pressure (AP Only)Although we don't think about it, we live at the bottom of a roughly 100 km deep sea of air.Air is made of molecules, so it has mass. Under the effect of gravity, it quite literally weighsdown on us every single moment of o

Lesson 59: Principle of Continuity (AP Only)We've spent a lot of time so far looking at hydrostatics, fluids at rest.Even when we looked at problems with moving fluids (like Pascal's Principle), you would notdescribe the fluid as flowing, like water th
Aarhus Universitet, Handels- og IngeniørHøjskolen - PHYSICS - 20339841
Lesson 60: Bernoulli's Equation (AP Only)Bernoulli's Equation looks at the pressure at two different locations for a moving fluid.It is really intimidating when you first see it, but it's not as bad as it might look.11P 1 g y 1 v 2= P 2 g y 2 v 212
