Bulusu & Prof. Michael W. Plesniak Very Short Introduction to Free Body Diagrams Outline What is a Force? Analysis of Forces: Free Body Diagrams Examples: Analysis using Free Body Diagrams Concept: Inertia of rest and motion Concept: Net Force Concept of Force A force is something that is capable of changing an object’s state of motion, that is, changing its velocity. Any particular force may not actually change an object’s state of motion, as there may be other forces that prevent it from doing so. Note: The Force is NOT a binding, metaphysical and ubiquitous power as in the fictional universe of the Star Wars galaxy created by George Lucas.- Paraphrased from wikipedia “May the force be with you” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:CGIYoda.jpg Dr. Kartik V. Bulusu & Prof. Michael W. Plesniak Very Short Introduction to Free Body Diagrams Outline What is a Force? Analysis of Forces: Free Body Diagrams Examples: Analysis using Free Body Diagrams Concept: Inertia of rest and motion Concept: Net Force Newton’s Laws of Motion I Three physical laws that form the basis for classical mechanics. I Describe the relationship between the forces acting on a body and its motion due to those forces. 1. First law: Every body remains in a state of rest or uniform motion (constant velocity) unless it is acted upon by an external unbalanced force. This means that in the presence of a zero net force, the center of mass of a body either remains at rest, or moves at a constant speed in a straight line.constant speed in a straight line....
