1 Chapter 4 Forces and Newton’s Laws of Motion 4.1 The concepts of force and mass Definitions Force: what hurts Force is what makes things interact with each other Contact force (easier to see) Noncontact force (more general than we feel) Gravity, electric/magnetic force, cell phone, remote Mass (kg): not the same as weight Weight: what you don’t want to see when you step on a scale. Your weight will be different if you are on the moon. Mass is the “intrinsic” property of something. Doesn’t change from one planet to another.

2 4.2 Newton’s First Law of Motion An object continues to be at rest or moving with the same velocity (both magnitude and direction) without experiencing a force . No force, no change (inertia, measured by its mass) Engines, breaks: forces to cause change in velocity 4.3 Newton’s Second Law Looks simple, but hard to calculate vectors Break it down to components F x = ma x F y = ma y Solve the two components independently Once a x and a y are known, we can use kinematics in two dimensions to solve the problems completely.

### What students are saying

• 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.
