PHYS 151 Spring 2017 Alyssa Tsenter Supplemental Instruction [email protected] Final Exam Review A brief review of the new material: Gravitation: Newton proposed a force law that states that every particle attracts any other particle with a gravitational force of magnitude: ࠵? = ࠵? ࠵?࠵? ࠵? In a circular orbit, F G = . With this new definition of gravity, we need a new form of gravitational potential energy: ࠵? = − ࠵?࠵?࠵? ࠵? This value is negative because we set as our U= 0. The initial speed needed to get a projectile to come to rest at U= 0 is called the and its formula is: ࠵? = 2࠵?࠵? ࠵? Kepler’s Laws! All planets move in elliptical orbits, with the Sun at one focus. A planet sweeps out equal areas in the plane of the orbit in equal time intervals. Period of rotation is proportional to the semimajor axis of its orbit. ࠵? - ࠵? = ࠵? - ࠵? . ࠵?࠵? ࠵? = 4࠵? ࠵?࠵? ࠵? . *the 2 nd equation holds for circular orbits if a is replaced with r (semimajor axis/radius) 0 th Law of Thermodynamics: Zeroth Law: If bodies A and B are each in thermal equilibrium with a third body C (the thermometer), then A and B are in thermal equilibrium with each other. The SI unit for temperature is . The equation of state for an ideal gas is given by: ࠵?࠵? = ࠵?࠵?࠵? = ࠵? ࠵? 9 ࠵?࠵? = ࠵?࠵? ; ࠵? Internal energy is associated with the microscopic components of a system and includes potential and kinetic energy. For an ideal gas it is defined as: ࠵? =>? = 3 2 ࠵?࠵?࠵? Heat is a mechanism by which energy is transferred between a system and its environment because of . It is also the amount of energy Q transferred by this mechanism. An equation for Q is: ࠵? = ࠵?࠵?∆࠵? *when phase isn’t changing It is really hard to measure c directly so we need to use which let’s us say ࠵? DEFG = −࠵? HE? To account for heat released/absorbed by a phase change need to take into account latent heat of fusion (solid to liquid) and of vaporization (liquid to gas).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
