Everyday Forces 1. Weight : This is the force of gravity. Or gravity acting on a mass w = mg 2. Normal Force : The force a surface applies to an object. It is ALWAYS perpendicular to surface

Everyday forces cont. 1. Tension : The force applied by a rope. Or the force in a rope. Ropes only pull. 2. Applied Force : A force applied by some object, like a person, that does not fall into any previous category 3. Friction : The force a surface applies that resists motion or an applied force

Unformatted text preview: first condition for an object to be in equilibrium. You see, in addition to the objects center of mass having no acceleration, we also want the object to not rotate 2 nd Condition for Equilibrium Torque A force applied to an object away from a pivot point (lets say a distance r) will cause the object to rotate (think of a door or wrench). A torque is the measure of the tendency of a force to cause or change the rotational motion of a body Torque Counterclockwise rotations will be POSITIVE Clockwise rotations will be NEGATIVE (your book arbitrarily chose this) Center of Gravity What is m? Example 11.2 p 410 Example 11.3 p 411 Classic Situations Diving Board (#11 p. 426) Sign (#13, 14 p. 426) Door (on board) Ladder (#10 p. 426) No torque hanging chandelier (# 7, 8 p194)...
