NEWTON’S LAWS OF MOTION So Far: Follow motion in 1 D and 2 D based solely on Follow motion in 1 D and 2 D based solely on definitions of v and a in terms of position as a function of time. (KINEMATICS) NOW Determine motion based on the underlying physica NOW: Determine motion based on the underlying physical cause of that motion. (DYNAMICS) “Laws of Motion” formulated by Newton over 300 years ago Forces and interactions Common experience: Force is a “push” or a “pull” Force is a vector pull push Different types of forces: Contact Force (kick soccer ball, push book, tow car, … ) Long range forces, act through “empty” space (electric force, magnetic force, gravitational force, … ) Unit of force in SI units: Newton [N] 3 We will focus on contact forces and gravity (near the earth’s surface )
