05/11/09 Physics 13 - Fall 07 - G.R. Goldstein 2 acceleration Newton’s 1st Law: body remains in uniform motion unless acted upon by (net) force Non-uniform means v changes (magnitude or direction) Changing v over time is acceleration a = dv dt = d 2 x dt 2 a due to gravity = 9.8 m/s 2 = g always downward Vertical motion on earth

05/11/09 Physics 13 - Fall 07 - G.R. Goldstein 3 Galilean relativity Ball seen from platform follows trajectory for initial velocity in x- direction u x = 100 Km/hr = V of train (at time t=0) No force in x direction so u x of ball unchanged and x increases x = u x t Gravity in -y direction, so downward u y increases and y falls from say h = 5.0 m to 0 via y = h - gt 2 /2 y = 0 for 1 2 gt 2 = h So t = 2 h g = 10. m 9.8 m /sec 2 =1.0 sec

05/11/09 Physics 13 - Fall 07 - G.R. Goldstein 4 Galilean relativity (cont’d) Acceleration same in either Frame of Reference - So F =m a = m a Newton’s 2nd Law unchanged There is no way to determine which Frame of Reference is “at rest” by doing experiments! (Invariance of Laws of Physics)

05/11/09 Physics 13 - Fall 07 - G.R. Goldstein 5 Ball seen from platform follows trajectory for initial velocity u x = 100 Km/hr = V and u y =0,u z =0 x ( t ) = x ( t ) + Vt u x ( t ) = dx dt = d dt ( x ( t ) + Vt ) = u x ( t ) + V so u x = u x + V addition of velocities Also a x ( t ) = d 2 x dt 2 = d dt ( u x ( t ) + V ) = a x ( t ) Hence F =m a = m a - Newton’s 2nd Law unchanged

Physics 13 - Fall 07 - G.R. Goldstein 6 Lateral bouncing ball in 2 inertial frames  S : frame on train seen from above L V x y Position of ball on upward path x =0, y =u y t until y =L So for round trip t R =2L/u y Let u y =c the speed of ball and note that u y ’= u y in S S: platform frame seen from above L x y d Vt R /2 L 2 + ( Vt R /2) 2 = d 2 = L 2 (1+V 2 /u y 2 ) Now d/(t R /2) = c ball speed seen
