Spring 2011 PHYS 172: Modern Mechanics Lecture 14 – Energy in Macroscopic System Read 7.10 – 7.12 EXAM 2 is next week Time: 8:00-10:00 pm Wed March 9 Place: Elliott Hall Material: lectures 9-14, respective HWs and recitations Problems: multiple choice, 14 questions (70 points) write-up part, hand graded (30 points) Note: no lecture on March 10 ! Energy dissipation E universe = const Energy dissipation: “loss” of energy into forms less useful to us Example: air resistance : Free fall of metal ball Free fall of Paper h t 0.03 s 0.06 s 0.09 s 0 s 1 m

3 Terminal speed mg ° air F ° 0 dp dt = ° ° v const = ±±±±± ° ° terminal speed Mechanism of air resistance Simple model: In average, molecules hit object with larger relative momentum from below than from above, the difference is larger for higher speeds. Too simple! Need to take into account macroscopic “wind”-like phenomenon Fluid dynamics: mathematically complex, beyond the scope of this course

    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.

    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.

    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.
