Motion

Aristotles Study

Aristotles Law of Motion

This law of motion was based on false assumptions. He believed that an object moved

only if something was pushing it. His arguments were based on everyday observations,

rather than scientific experiments.

Argument:

(i)

Forces are needed to keep things moving, because they stop when the forces

are taken away (evidence horse pulling a carriage).

(ii)

The speed of the object depends on the size of the force (evidence two

horses pull a carriage faster than one horse).

The speed of an object is proportional to the force applied, V F.

Problems with Aristotles Explanation:

(i)

Aristotle could not explain why objects fell to the ground without any visible

force.

(ii)

He could not explain why the moon and planets move for no apparent reason,

so he invented explanations without scientific evidence.

Galileos Achievements

Born: 1564

Died: 1642

He invented the scientific instrument, the telescope, which allowed him to make/ take

accurate measurements, which supported his theories. He was the first to discover the

Earth was not the center of the Universe, but in actual fact it circled around the Sun. His

beliefs were against those preached by the church, and he was sentenced to house arrest

for the remainder of his life. He also invented the scientific method, which we presently

use when carrying out experiments.

b)

Sir Isaac Newton

Born: 1642

Died: 1727

Achievements:

1. He studied the nature of light, and demonstrated that white light is made up of

many colours.

2. Newtons Law of Gravitation.

3. Newtons New Law of Calculation.

4. He invented the first reflective telescope.

5. He invented new Mathematics, to handle data produced by scientific observations.

6. Newtons Laws of Motion.

Every body remains in a state of rest or continues to move in a uniform motion, in a

straight line, unless acting on by an external force.

Inertia (Newtons 1st Law can be used to explain inertia)

This is the laziness or tendency of matter to resist changes in its motion. Inertia makes

difficult for an object to start or stop moving, change direction or accelerate.

Example:

A passenger standing on a bus observes the effects of inertia, especially when the bus

moves off and stops suddenly.

When a force acts on a body, the rate of change on momentum is proportional to the

applied force, and takes place in the direction on the force.

force = mass acceleration

F = ma

1N is defined as the force needed to give a mass of 1kg an acceleration of 1m/s

If body A exerts a force on body B, then body B exerts an equal but opposite force.

Momentum (Newtons 1st and 2nd Laws can be used to explain Momentum)

momentum = mass velocity

p = mv

units of momentum = kgm/s

Note:

Momentum is a vector quantity.

When a force acts on a body, it causes the velocity to change, and hence the momentum

changes.

We can determine the force applied by measuring the rate of change of momentum.

F = mv

t

where: v = change in velocity

= v u (final velocity initial velocity)

Therefore:

F = m(v u)

t

Impulse

We can calculate the impulse, which is equal to change of momentum. It is determined

by multiplying the force by time.

Ft = mv mu

units = Ns

4

Law of Conservation of Momentum

When two or more objects interact, the total momentum remains constant, provided that

no external force acts on them.

total momentum before collision = total momentum after collision

We use this law when dealing with collisions. There are two types of collisions: elastic or

inelastic collision.

(N.B. Momentum is a vector quantity, and direction must be always taken into account,

when doing calculations)

Elastic Collisions

An elastic collision is when two or more objects collide, and move apart, having lost little

or none of their motion energy.

BEFORE COLLISION

AFTER COLLISION

MAUA + MBUB

=

MAVA + MBVB

Inelastic Collisions

An inelastic collision is when two or more objects collide, stick together, and move off in

one direction after the collision.

(M A + M B )V

D. Whitehall

Examples:

A trolley A, 5kg, is traveling at 3m/s. Trolley B, 6kg, is traveling in the opposite direction

at 5m/s. An elastic collision occurs, and trolley A moves opposite to the original direction

at 4m/s. Calculate the speed of trolley B, after the collision.

A bullet of 100g was fired into a stationary target, of mass 4kg, the target and bullet

moves off with a velocity of 5m/s. Calculate the velocity of the bullet before it hits the

target.

Terminal Velocity (Free Fall)

When a fallen object has gained a velocity, a friction force (F R ) opposes its weight (W),

the resultant downward force (F) can be calculated by

F = W FR

We can use this equation to calculate the acceleration of the object.

Since we know that

F = ma

And

F = W FR

We can therefore state

ma = W F R

Hence

a = W FR

m

As the velocity of an object increases so does the magnitude of the frictional force, this

continues until the friction force reaches the same value as the weight. Since it acts in an

opposite direction to the frictional force, the resultant force is zero,

W = FR

W FR = 0

F =0

At this point the acceleration is also zero so the object is falling at a constant speed. This

constant speed is called terminal velocity, and it is the maximum speed for particular

objects, free falling through liquids.

D. Whitehall

Example:

Stage A: When the marble is first released from rest, theres no frictional force (F R = 0).

Therefore F = W

Stage B: Velocity increases as the marble falls hence frictional force increases, but is less

than the weight (F R < W). The F which acts downwards is now W F R

(F = W F R )

FR

Stage C: Terminal velocity is reached when the frictional force is equal to the weight of

the marble (W = F R ). Therefore the resultant force is equal to zero, no

acceleration (F = 0).

FR

Example:

A woman of 70kg jumps out of an aeroplane, and before she could open her parachute

she was falling at an acceleration of 7m/s. Calculate the frictional drag, if g = 10N/kg.

Kinetic and Potential Energy

Kinetic Energy

When work is done pushing an object (which accelerates) it gains motion energy, which

we call kinetic energy. A resultant, or unbalanced, force applied to an object makes it

accelerate and increases its kinetic energy. Therefore kinetic energy is the energy a body

possesses because of its motion.

KE = mv

v is the velocity of the object ( m/s)

Potential Energy

This is stored energy which an object possesses because of its position or condition, like a

stretched piece of string or rope. An object can have stored energy if it is held in a

position where it can be influenced by gravity; this potential energy can be called

gravitational potential energy.

PE = mgh

g is the gravity (N/kg)

h is the vertical distance (m)

Change of Kinetic Energy E = Change of Potential Energy E gain of E = loss of E

loss of E = gain of E

D. Whitehall

10

Motion in A Circle

Many objects move in circular paths or orbits. Examples can be a car turning a corner or

a person riding on a roundabout. But for every case there must be an unbalanced or

resultant force producing the motion in a circle, or else the objects would not move in a

straight line, as described by Newtons first law of motion.

Centripetal Force

This is the external force required to make a body follow a circular path at constant

speed. Hence centripetal force is a force requirement, not a particular kind of force. Any

force can act as a centripetal force. The centripetal force always acts perpendicular to the

direction of motion of the body.

F = mv

r

v is the velocity of the object (m/s)

r orbit radius (m)
