APPLICATIONS The motion of an object depends on the forces acting on it. Knowing the drag force, how can we determine the acceleration or velocity of the parachutist at any point in time? This has some importance when landing! A parachutist relies on the atmospheric drag resistance force of her parachute to limit her velocity.

APPLICATIONS (continued) The baggage truck A tows a cart B, and a cart C. If we know the frictional force developed at the driving wheels of the truck, can we determine the acceleration of the truck? How? Can we also determine the horizontal force acting on the coupling between the truck and cart B? This is needed when designing the coupling (or understanding why it failed).

APPLICATIONS (continued) A freight elevator is lifted using a motor attached to a cable and pulley system as shown. How can we determine the tension force in the cable required to lift the elevator and load at a given acceleration? This is needed to decide what size cable should be used. Is the tension force in the cable greater than the weight of the elevator and its load?

NEWTON'S LAWS OF MOTION (Section 13.1) The motion of a particle is governed by Newton's three laws of motion . First Law : A particle originally at rest, or moving in a straight line at constant velocity, will remain in this state if the resultant force acting on the particle is zero. Second Law : If the resultant force on the particle is not zero, the particle experiences an acceleration in the same direction as the resultant force. This acceleration has a magnitude proportional to the resultant force.

    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.
