Lecture 4 Purdue University, Physics 220 2 Mass and Weight Mass: quantifies the amount of inertia that an object possesses – an intrinsic property of the object Weight (Gravitational force exerted by the Earth) W = mg (g-acceleration due to gravity) g = GM earth /(r earth ) 2 = 9.8 m/s 2 (G – universal gravitational constant, more in Chapter 5)
Lecture 4 Purdue University, Physics 220 3 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

Lecture 4 Purdue University, Physics 220 4 Friction Magnitude of frictional force is proportional to the normal force. f kinetic = μ k N μ k coefficient of kinetic friction f static μ s N μ s coefficient of static friction Be Careful! Static friction , can be any value up to μ s N Direction always opposes motion
Friction and Walking The person “pushes” off during each step The bottoms of his shoes exert a force on the ground If the shoes do not slip, the force is due to static friction The shoes do not move relative to the ground

### 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.

Kiran Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.
