SPEED, VELOCITY, ACCELERATION AND FORCE

THEORY

VELOCITY

Velocity v is a vector, with units of meters per second m/s

Velocity indicates the rate of change of the objects position (r); i.e., velocity tells you how

fast the objects position is changing.

The magnitude of the velocity (||||v) indicates the objects speed.

The direction of the velocity (dir v) indicates the objects direction of motion. The velocity at

any point is always tangent to the objects path at that point.

Thus, the velocity tells you how the object is moving. In particular, the velocity tells you which

way and how fast the object is moving.

ACCELERATION

Acceleration is a vector, with units of meters per second squared (a2sm).

Acceleration indicates the rate of change of the objects velocity (v); i.e., the acceleration tells

you how fast the objects velocity is changing.

The component of the acceleration that is parallel to the velocity ( ||a) indicates the rate of

change of the objects speed. If ||ais parallel to the velocity, then the object is speeding up; if is

anti-parallel to the velocity, then the object is slowing down. ||a

The component of the acceleration that is perpendicular to the velocity ( a) indicates the rate

of change of the objects direction.

Thus, the acceleration does not tell you the objects motion. Instead, the acceleration tells you

how the objects motion is changing.

Displacement-time graph

Zero displacement is defined as the floor.

The gradient of the displacement-time graph is velocity. The gradient

of the graph is negative and becomes increasingly large as the ball falls

and speeds up.

When the ball hits the ground, it bounces back up and the gradient

becomes positive.

The gradient then decreases until the ball is at the top of its path.

The ball then drops downwards once more.

Velocity-time graph

The ball is dropped from rest and so the initial velocity is zero.

Velocity downwards has been given a negative sign and so the velocity

then becomes a bigger negative number as the ball accelerates

downwards.

The gradient of the graph is acceleration and this is constant

at 9.81 ms-2 as this is acceleration due to gravity.

When the ball bounces it rapidly comes to a stop before bouncing back,

upwards, with a positive velocity.

The ball will then slow down until, at the top of its path, it will

instantaneously have zero velocity before heading back towards the

ground.

FORCE

Force is a vector, with units of Newtons (N). F

From Newtons Second Law, 2sm kgN=

Forces cause acceleration, not velocity. (More precisely, the force at any instant determines the

acceleration at that instant, not the velocity.)

The component of the force that is parallel to the velocity ( ||F) changes the objects speed. If is

parallel to the velocity, then the force speeds the object up; if is anti-parallel to the velocity, then

the force slows the object down. ||F||F

The component of the force that is perpendicular to the velocity (F) changes the objects

direction.

Thus, forces do not cause motion; forces cause changes in motion. Forces make objects speed

up, slow down, and/or change direction.

Newtons Three Laws

Newtons First Law: An object at rest tends to stay at rest and an object in motion tends to stay in

motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced

external force. Inertia is a property of matter that resists changes in motion. If a mass is not

moving, it will stay that way until an unbalanced external force starts to move it; if a mass is in

motion, it will stay in motion with the same speed and direction until an unbalanced external

force changes its motion characteristics (friction could slow it down, or a force could accelerate

its motion). For example, let us consider a hockey puck on the ice (assume the ice is perfectly

level and frictionless). If the puck is placed down on the ice, it will stay motionless until someone

hits it with a stick or skate because of its inertia. Also due to inertia, when slapped, the puck will

tend to move in a straight line with constant speed until an external force (such as another player,

or the goalie, or the net) changes its motion. As a second example of Newtons First Law,

consider a car accelerating from a stoplight. As the car accelerates from zero motion, your body

tends to push back into the seat due to its inertia (trying to remain at rest). Also, as the car is

braked from a high speed back to stopping, your body is flung forward due to its inertia in

motion. Hopefully you have your seatbelt on, or else Newtons First Law could have bad

consequences.

Newtons Second Law: The acceleration a of an object as produced by a net force F is directly

proportional to the magnitude of the net force, in the same direction as the net force, and

inversely proportional to the mass m of the object: F = ma. A resultant external force F acting on

a body will accelerate that body in the direction of F, with acceleration a = F/m. Acceleration is

the second time rate of change of position, also the first time rate of change of velocity;

acceleration is to velocity what velocity is to position. Newtons original statement of the Second

Law was that the resultant external force F is equal to the time rate of change of momentum (mv,

mass times velocity)

Newtons Third Law: For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. This law is

familiar in everyday situations; a force cannot be applied to an object unless something resists the

reaction of that force. In order to walk across the floor, you must push back on the floor with your

foot; then, according to Newtons Third Law, the floor pushes forward on your foot, which

propels you forward. This, of course, requires friction to work. If a free-floating astronaut were to

throw a baseball, there is nothing to resist the throwing force, so as the baseball accelerates in the

direction of throwing, the astronaut would accelerate backwards, with a force equal and opposite

to the throwing force. The astronaut would accelerate at a much smaller level (by Newtons

Second Law) since her mass is much greater than the baseballs mass. The recoil of a gun during

firing is another example of Newtons Third Law. As a final example, if a person attempts to

jump to a dock from a small sailboat, they may end up landing in water if they do not understand

Newtons Third Law: similar to the astronaut example, the jumping force of the human on the

boat will tend to push the boat backwards; the equal and opposite force of the boat on the human

will propel that person toward the dock, but since the boat moves backwards, the person may end

up wet. The same problem exists for large sailboats, except with larger boat inertia, it is less

noticeable.

WORK ENERGY AND POWER

THEORY

Work

When a force acts on an object and the object actually moves in the direction of force,

then the

work is said to be done by the force.

Work done by the force is equal to the product of the force and the displacement of

the object

in the direction of force.

If under a constant force F the object displaced through a distance s, then work done

by the

force

W = F * s = F s cos

where a is the smaller angle between F and s.

Work is a scalar quantity, Its S1 unit is joule and CGS unit is erg.

1 joule = 107 erg

Its dimensional formula is [ML2T-2].

Work done by a force is zero, if

(a) body is not displaced actually, i.e., s = 0

(b) body is displaced perpendicular to the direction of force, i.e.,

= 90

Work done by a force is positive if angle between F and s is acute angle.

Work done by a force is negative if angle between F and s is obtuse angle.

Work done by a constant force depends only on the initial and final Positions and not

on the

actual path followed between initial and final positions.

Work done in different conditions

(i) Work done by a variable force is given by

W = F * ds

23 | P a g e

It is equal to the area under the force-displacement graph along with proper sign.

Work done = Area ABCDA

(ii) Work done in displacing any body under the action of a number of forces is equal

to the

work done by the resultant force.

(iii) In equilibrium (static or dynamic), the resultant force is zero therefore resultant

work done

is zero.

(iv) If work done by a force during a rough trip of a system is zero, then the force is

conservative, otherwise it is called non-conservative force.

Gravitational force, electrostatic force, magnetic force, etc are conservative forces.

All

the central forces are conservative forces.

Frictional force, viscous force, etc are non-conservative forces.

(v) Work done by the force of gravity on a particle of mass m is given by W = mgh

where g is acceleration due to gravity and h is height through particle one displaced.

(vi) Work done in compressing or stretching a spring is given by

W = 1 / 2 kx2

where k is spring constant and x is displacement from mean position.

(vii) When on end of a spring is attached to a fixed vertical support and a block

attached to the

free end moves on a horizontal

table from x = x1 to x = x2 then W = 1 / 2 k (x2x2 x2x1)

(viii) Work done by the couple for an angular displacement is given by W = i *

where i is the torque of the couple.

power

The time rate of work done by a body is called its power

If under a constant force F a body is displaced through a distance s in time t, the

power

p=W/t=F*s/t

But s / t = v ; uniform velocity with which body is displaced.

P = F * v = F v cos

where is the smaller angle between F and v.

power is a scalar quantity. Its S1 unit is watt and its dimensional formula is [ML2T-3].

Its other units are kilowatt and horse power,

1 kilowatt = 1000 watt

1 horse power = 746 watt

24 | P a g e

Energy

Energy of a body is its capacity of doing work.

It is a scalar quantity.

Its S1 unit is joule and CGS unit is erg. Its dimensional formula is [ML3T-3].

There are several types of energies, such as mechanical energy (kinetic energy and

potential

energy), chemical energy, light energy, heat energy, sound energy, nuclear energy,

electric

energy etc.

Mechanical Energy

The sum of kinetic and potential energies at any point remains constant throughout the

motion.

It does not depend upon time. This is known as law of conservation of mechanical

energy.

Mechanical energy is of two types:

1. Kinetic Energy

The energy possessed by any object by virtue of its motion is called its kinetic energy.

Kinetic energy of an object is given by

k = 1 / 2 mv2 = p2 / 2m

where m = mass of the object, U = velocity of the object and p = mv =

momentum of the

object.

2. Potential Energy

The energy possessed by any object by virtue of its position or configuration is called

its

potential energy.

There are three important types of potential energies:

(i) Gravitational Potential Energy If a body of mass m is raised through a height h

against

gravity, then its gravitational potential energy = mgh,

(ii) Elastic Potential Energy If a spring of spring constant k is stretched through a

distance x.

then elastic potential energy of the spring = 1 . 2 kx2

The variation of potential energy with distance is shown in figure.

Potential energy is defined only for conservative forces. It does not exist for non-

conservative

forces.

Potential energy depends upon frame of reference.

25 | P a g e

(iii) Electric Potential Energy The electric potential energy of two point charges ql

and ql.

separated by a distance r in vacuum is given by

U = 1 / 40 * q1q2 / r

Here 1 / 40 = 9.0 * 1010 N-m2 / C2 constant.

VISCOSITY UPTHRUST AND VISCOUS DRAG

THEORY

Density

Kgm-3.

Upthrust

A fluid will exert a force upward on a body if it is partly or wholly submerged within it.

This is because the deeper into a fluid you go, the greater the weight of it and so the greater

the pressure. This difference in pressure between the top and the bottom of the object

produces an upward force on it. This is called Upthrust.

the weight of the fluid displaced. So the volume of the object multiplied by the density of

the fluid.

Viscosity

In a fluid, each 'layer' experts a force of friction of each other 'layer'. This frictional force is

also present when solid object moves through a liquid. This force is termed Viscous Drag.

Viscous Drag is greater in Turbulent Flow than Laminar Flow.

The size of the Viscous Drag in a fluid depends on the (coefficient of)Viscosity of that fluid.

Viscosity is given the letter and is measured inKgm-2s or Pa s. The greater the Viscosity,

the greater the Viscous Drag.

most gases, Viscosity increases as temperature increases. It is therefore important to

always measure the temperature of a fluid when measuring Viscosity.

It is possible to calculate the drag force exerted on a spherical object in a fluid using Stoke's

Law:

F = 6rv

29 | P a g e

Stoke's Law assumes Laminar Flow, and so low velocities.

In this equation, v represents Terminal Velocity. This means that theforces acting on the

object are balanced. This means that is it possible to form an equation be equating Weight

with Upthrust and Viscous Drag (or, in the case of Upward Motion, Upthrust with Weight

and Viscous Drag).

FLUID FLOW

Under some circumstances the flow will not be as changeable as this. He following terms describe the

states which are used to classify fluid flow: uniform flow: If the flow velocity is the same magnitude and

direction at every point in the fluid it is said to be uniform. non-uniform: If at a given instant, the

velocity is not the same at every point the flow is non-uniform. (In practice, by this definition, every fluid

that flows near a solid boundary will be non-uniform - as the fluid at the boundary must take the speed of

the boundary, usually zero. However if the size and shape of the of the cross-section of the stream of fluid

is constant the flow is considered uniform.) steady: A steady flow is one in which the conditions

(velocity, pressure and cross-section) may differ from point to point but DO NOT change with time.

unsteady: If at any point in the fluid, the conditions change with time, the flow is described as unsteady.

(In practise there is always slight variations in velocity and pressure, but if the average values are

constant, the flow is considered steady. Combining the above we can classify any flow in to one of four

type: 1. Steady uniform flow. Conditions do not change with position in the stream or with time. An

example is the flow of water in a pipe of constant diameter at constant velocity. CIVE 1400: Fluid

Mechanics Fluid Dynamics: The Momentum and Bernoulli Equations 45 2. Steady non-uniform flow.

Conditions change from point to point in the stream but do not change with time. An example is flow in a

tapering pipe with constant velocity at the inlet - velocity will change as you move along the length of the

pipe toward the exit. 3. Unsteady uniform flow. At a given instant in time the conditions at every point are

the same, but will change with time. An example is a pipe of constant diameter connected to a pump

pumping at a constant rate which is then switched off. 4. Unsteady non-uniform flow. Every condition of

the flow may change from point to point and with time at every point. For example waves in a channel

QUESTIONS

1) A small steel ball is released at the surface of some oil of known viscosity and begins to

sink. The diagrams show the forces acting on the ball shortly after its release and when it

has reached terminal velocity.

X is Upthrust Or weight of oil/fluid displaced

Y is Drag Or friction Or fluid resistance Or viscous/resistive force

Z is Weight Or gravitational pull/force

Rate of change of velocity decreases Or deceleration/acceleration

decreases Or Drag force decreases as speed decreases

Glide 2 has a greater drag/resistance/friction

Explanation of why the drag force of 2 is greater than 1

e.g. cross sectional area is greater Or more turbulent flow Or less streamlined

3) Lava is molten rock, which sometimes erupts from beneath the Earths surface. As the

lava cools volcanoes form. The shape of the volcano is determined by the flow rate of

the lava. The graph below shows how the viscosities of two types of lava vary with

temperature.

Both types of lava are at the same temperature as they reach the Earths surface. The

shield volcano is formed from basalt lava and the cone volcano is formed from rhyolite

lava. Use the information in the graph to explain the shape of each volcano.

Rhyolites viscosity is greater than basalts

Rhyolite flows more slowly than basalt

Or

high viscosity gives low flow rate

Basalt flows a long way before solidifying /cooling (so shield shape)

Or

rhyolite flows a short distance before solidifying /cooling (so cone shape

MATERIALS

THEORY

37 | P a g e

Hooke's Law

By definition the spring constant is that force which will produce unit extension(unit

Nm-1) in a spring.

Stress

Stress is a measure of the internal force an object is experiencing per unit cross sectional area.

Hence, the formula for calculating stress is the same as the formula for calculating pressure: but

where is stress (in Newtons per square metre or, equivalently, Pascals). F is force (in Newtons,

commonly abbreviated N), and A is the cross sectional area of the sample. Compressive stress

make object short and tensile makes longer

Tensile Strength

The (ultimate) tensile strength is the level of stress at which a material will fracture. Tensile

strength is also known as fracture stress. If a material fractures by 'crack propagation' (i.e., it

shatters), the material is brittle.

Yield Stress

On a stress strain graph beyond the yield point (or elastic limit) the material will no longer return

to its original length. This means it has become permanently deformed. Therefore the yield stress

is the level of stress at which a material will deform permanently. This is also known as yield

strength.

Strain

Stresses lead to strain (or deformation). Putting pressure on an object causes it to stretch. Strain

is a measure of how much an object is being stretched. The formula for strain is:

where is the original length of a bar being stretched, and l is its length after it has been

stretched. l is the extension of the bar, the difference between these two lengths.

38 | P a g e

Young's Modulus

Young's Modulus is a measure of the stiffness of a material. It states how much a material will

stretch (i.e., how much strain it will undergo) as a result of a given amount of stress. The formula

for calculating it is:

The values for stress and strain must be taken at as low a stress level as possible, provided a

difference in the length of the sample can be measured. Strain is unitless so Young's Modulus

has the same units as stress, i.e. N/m or Pa.

Stress-Strain Graphs[edit]

Stress () can be graphed against strain (). The toughness of a material (i.e., how much it resists

stress, in J m-3) is equal to the area under the curve, between the y-axis and the fracture point.

Graphs such as the one on the right show how stress affects a material. This image shows the

stress-strain graph for low-carbon steel. It has three main features:

Elastic Region

In this region (between the origin and point 2), the ratio of stress to strain (Young's modulus) is

constant, meaning that the material is obeying Hooke's law, which states that a material is elastic

(it will return to its original shape) if force is directly proportional to extension of the material

39 | P a g e

Plastic Region

In this region (between points 2 and 3), the rate at which extension is increasing is going up, and

the material has passed the elastic limit. It will no longer return to its original shape. After point

1, the amount of stress decreases due to necking at one point in the specimen. If the stress was

recorded where the necking occurs we would observe an upward curve and an increase in stress

due to this reduction in area(stress = Force / area, thus stress increases during necking). The

material will now 'give' and extend more under less force.

Fracture Point

At point 3, the material has been fractured.

Other Typical Graphs

In a brittle material, such as glass or ceramics, the stress-strain graph will have an extremely

short elastic region, and then will fracture. There is no plastic region on the stress-strain graph of

a brittle material.

MCQS

A As the force applied increases, the extension increases.

B The force applied is directly proportional to the extension.
