Applications of Newton’s Law z The Particle in Equilibrium z The Particle under a Net Force z Friction Forces
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 x y F F 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 0 0 = = = y g g F T F 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

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.

    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.
