Lecture 2 Purdue University, Physics 220 4 Mass and Weight • Gravitational force G = 6.7 × 10 -11 Nm 2 /kg 2 • The mass of an object quantifies the amount of inertia that an object possesses – an intrinsic property of the object • Weight W = mg g = GM earth /(r earth ) 2 = 9.8 m/s 2

Lecture 2 Purdue University, Physics 220 6 Equilibrium • Net Force: If are all the forces acting on an object • When an object is in equilibrium, the net force acting on it is zero

Lecture 2 Purdue University, Physics 220 7 Contact Forces • Normal force: a contact force acting at an interface – perpendicular to the surface of contact • Frictional force: another contact force acting at an interface – parallel to the surface of contact – resist motion of the two surfaces sliding past each other – always act opposite the direction of motion mg N F F f
