Chapter 8 Forces on systems Newtons 3rd law Every force occurs as one member of an action/reaction pair of forces The two members of an action/reaction pair act on two different objects The two members of an action/reaction pair are equal in magnitu
Energy as a Conserved Quantity
2 main types of energy kinetic and potential
Energy units: 1 joule = 1 J = 1 kg m2/s2 = 1 N m for both types.
Gravitational Potential Energy
This is valid for any frictionless surfac
Chapter 9 Moment and Impulse Momentum is a vector quantity
kg m/s or N s.
Fx (t )dt
The area under the impulse graph Jx= Delta P
Definition: "impulse" Jx
Fx (t ) dt
Note F avg = Jx / Dt For these probs.

This denotes positive and negative values on a graph. Interpreting position/time graphs

When the values are positive they indicate distan
Chapter 5 Equilibrium An object on which the net force is zero is said to be in equilibrium. The object might be at rest in static equilibrium Or might be moving in a straight line with constant velocity in dynamic equilibrium. Both of these conditio
