The force of friction from the road on the tires is M a cm . The center of mass of this system is accelerating. Hence, M a cm must be equal to the sum of all external forces. Friction is pushing the car! (Does friction always oppose the motion?) F uv net , ext =M total r a cm = d r P total dt Further Discussion

F uv net , ext =M total r a cm = d r P total dt This result says that the center of mass of a complex system moves as if all forces were applied to the entire mass at that point. Throw a baseball, and you see parabolic motion. What happens if you throw a baton? 1D-11 Trajectory of the Center of Mass Throw a Baton

Which puck will move faster? Both pucks move at same speed! HOWEVER: Hand #2 has to pull the string farther: W 2 > W 1 . Where does this energy go? Rotational energy. The bottom spool is spinning. d r P tot dt ! M r a cm = r F net , surr Center of Mass Motion - Review

Point Particle vs Real Systems When we treat a real system as a point particle system: •The net external force acts on the Center of Mass •The change in the point particle’s translational kinetic energy is equal to the work done by the net external force in moving the CM through a displacement Δ r, ie, ! K trans = r F ext " d r r cm i f # •The point particle system has no internal degrees of freedom. Therefore it cannot undergo a change of its internal energy - of any sort!

Point Particle vs Real Systems In contrast, a real multiparticle system has internal degrees of freedom that may undergo a change of energy when the system is subjected to exertnal forces. The net external force does Work on the system given by: W ext = r F ext ! d r r i f " Note that the displacement in the above expression is not that of the CM but that through which the net force acts. If an external force does not act through a displacement, it does no work on the real system! (Friction, for example.)

    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.
