If no net force acting on an object, there is no acceleration . The above statement can be used to define inertial reference frames. An IRF is a reference frame that is not accelerating (or rotating) with respect to the fixed stars. If one IRF exists, infinitely many exist since they are related by any arbitrary constant velocity vector! The surface of the Earth may be viewed as an IRF Physics 207: Lecture 5, Pg 3 Newtons Second Law Newtons Second Law The acceleration of an object is directly proportional to the net force acting upon it. The constant of proportionality is the mass. This expression is vector expression: F x , F y , F z Physics 207: Lecture 5, Pg 4 Contact (i.e., normal) Forces Contact (i.e., normal) Forces Certain forces act to keep an object in place. These have what ever force needed to balance all others (until a breaking point). F B,T Physics 207: Lecture 5, Pg 5 Non-contact Forces Non-contact Forces All objects having mass exhibit a mutually attractive force (i.e., gravity) that is distance dependent At the Earths surface this variation is small so little g (the associated acceleration) is typically set to 9.80 or 10. m/s 2 F B,G Physics 207: Lecture 5, Pg 6 No net force No net force No acceleration No acceleration F B,T Normal force is always to a surface net = = = = = y x F F a m F F F B,G (Force vectors are not always drawn at contact points) mg N N mg F y = = +- = y Physics 207: Lecture 5, Pg 7 Lecture 5, Lecture 5, Exercise 1 , Exercise 1 , Newtons 2 Newtons 2 nd nd Law Law A. P + C < W B. P + C > W C. P = C D. P + C = W A woman is straining to lift a large crate, without success. It is too heavy. We denote the forces on the crate as follows: P is the upward force being exerted on the crate by the person C is the contact force on the crate by the floor, and W is the weight (force of the earth on the crate). Which of following relationships between these forces is true, while the person is trying unsuccessfully to lift the crate? ( Note: force up is positive & down is negative ) Physics 207: Lecture 5, Pg 8...
