PHSX 114 Third Midterm Review Sheet Chapters 5 through 6 -- Spring 2009 Terminology: y centripetal acceleration y period y angular position y angular displacement y angular velocity y angular momentum y work y kinetic energy y potential energy y mechanical energy y conservative/non-conservative force y power Principles: y Newton’s law of Universal Gravitation y Kepler’s three laws of planetary motion (which follow from Newton’s gravity) y work is the product of the force along the direction of motion and the distance moved y work-kinetic energy theorem: net work equals change in kinetic energy (note: scalar relation) y the work done by a conservative force is independent of the path taken y one can assign a potential energy function to a conservative force (examples: gravity, spring) y conservation of mechanical energy (if no work done by non-conservative forces in isolated system) y Dissipative forces transform macroscopic mechanical energy into thermal energy. y
