PHYS 151 Spring 2017 Alyssa Tsenter Supplemental Instruction [email protected] http://www.usc.edu/si Midterm 2 Exam Review A brief review of the material: Centripetal Forces: If there is a force causing UCM, then: ࠵? = ࠵?࠵? becomes ࠵? % = &’ ( ) = ࠵?࠵? + ࠵? Note: F c does not appear on the FBD! It is not a new type of force. It is the form of Newton’s 2 nd Law for UCM. Work and Energy: Whether a system is isolated or non-isolated we can write: ∆࠵? /0/12& = Σ࠵? where T can be expanded as W + Q + … Work has units of N*m, which is equal to a Joule (the unit for energy!) Work is defined as: ࠵? = ࠵? ∙ ∆࠵? = ࠵? ∆࠵? cos(࠵?) * *for a constant force Using the force of a spring, which is , we get that the work done by a spring is . Work-Energy Theorem ࠵? = ࠵? ? − ࠵? A = 1 2 ࠵?࠵? ? + 1 2 ࠵?࠵? A + ࠵? = −∆࠵? Potential energy …in a gravitational field: ࠵? = ࠵?࠵?ℎ …of a spring: ࠵? = H + ࠵?࠵? + Initial and final mechanical energies of an isolated system are . Power is the rate of energy transfer and has units of : ࠵? = ࠵? ∆࠵? Conservation of Energy ࠵? A + ࠵? A = ࠵? ? + ࠵? ? Can only use conservation of energy if there are no . Momentum: Momentum is defined as: ࠵? = ࠵?࠵? To change the p of an object, need to apply a . This value is defined as: ࠵? = ࠵? ࠵?࠵? 1 Q 1 R = Δ࠵? 1T1 For a system, the total momentum remains constant. There are two types of collisions: Elastic and Inelastic

In an inelastic collision, is conserved. o For completely inelastic collisions, the two objects stick together after the collision o An explosion is a totally inelastic collision in reverse. Approaching collision problems: 1. Determine whether the collision is elastic or inelastic. 2. Write down conservation of momentum equation (since this holds for both kinds of collisions). 3. Determine which terms are zero and then solve for unknowns. Center of Mass: The center of mass of a system of particles is the point at which the system’s whole mass can be considered to be concentrated for the purpose of calculations. The equation for finding the CM is: ࠵?

    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.
