Applications of Newton’s Law z The Particle in Equilibrium z The Particle under a Net Force z Friction Forces
Background image of page 2
Particles in Equilibrium z If the acceleration of an object that can be modeled as a particle is zero, the object is said to be in equilibrium z The model is the particle in equilibrium model z Mathematically, the net force acting on the object is zero 0 0 and 0 = == ∑∑ r xy FF F

Equilibrium, Example 1 z A lamp is suspended from a chain of negligible mass z The forces acting on the lamp are z the downward force of gravity z the upward tension in the chain z Applying equilibrium gives 00 =→ = y g g F TF T F

Equilibrium, Example 2 z Conceptualize the traffic light z Assume cables don’t break z Nothing is moving z Categorize as an equilibrium problem z No movement, so acceleration is zero z Model as a particle in equilibrium
