Topics

Scalars and vectors The addition of vectors by calculation or scale drawing. Calculations will be limited to two perpendicular vectors. The resolution of vectors into two components at right angles to each other; examples should include the components of forces along and perpendicular to an inclined plane. Conditions for equilibrium for two or three coplanar forces acting at a point; problems may be solved either by using resolved forces or by using a closed triangle. Moments Moment of a force about a point defined as force x perpendicular distance from the point to the line of action of the force; torque. Couple of a pair of equal and opposite forces defined as force x perpendicular distance between the lines of action of the forces. The principle of moments and its applications in simple balanced situations. Centre of mass; calculations of the position of the centre of mass of a regular lamina are not expected.

**Vectors and Scalars
**

All physical quantities (e.g. speed and force) are described by a magnitude and a unit. VECTORS – also need to have their direction specified examples: displacement, velocity, acceleration, force. SCALARS – do not have a direction examples: distance, speed, mass, work, energy.

Representing Vectors

An arrowed straight line is used.

The arrow indicates the direction and the length of the line is proportional to the magnitude.

Displacement 50m EAST

Displacement 25m at 45o North of East

Addition of vectors 1

4N object 6N 4N

object

6N resultant = 10N

object The original vectors are called COMPONENT vectors. The final overall vector is called the RESULTANT vector. 4N object 6N object 6N 4N

resultant = 2N

object

Addition of vectors 2

With two vectors acting at an angle to each other: Draw the first vector. Draw the second vector with its tail end on the arrow of the first vector. The resultant vector is the line drawn from the tail of the first vector to the arrow end of the second vector. This method also works with three or more vectors.

4N

3N Resultant vector = 5N

Question

By scale drawing and calculation find the resultant force acting on an object in the situation below. You should also determine the direction of this force.

6N Scale drawing: 6N

θ

4N

ΣF

4N

Calculation: Pythagoras: ΣF2 = 62 + 42 = 36 + 16 = 52 ΣF2 = 52 ΣF = 7.21 N tan θ = 4 / 6 = 0.6667 θ = 33.7o The resultant force is 7.21 N to the left 33.7 degrees below the horizontal (bearing 236.3o)

**The parallelogram of vectors
**

This is another way of adding up two vectors. To add TWO vectors draw both of them with their tail ends connected. Complete the parallelogram made using the two vectors as two of the sides. The resultant vector is represented by the diagonal drawn from the two tail ends of the component vectors. Example: Calculate the total force on an object if it experiences a force of 4N upwards and a 3N force to the right.

4N up θ 3N right

Resultant force = 5 N Angle θ = 53.1o

Resolution of vectors

It is often convenient to split a single vector into two perpendicular components. Consider force F being split into vertical and horizontal components, FV and FH. In rectangle ABCD opposite: sin θ = BC / DB = DA / DB = FV / F Therefore: FV = F sin θ cos θ = DC / DB = FH / F Therefore: FH = F cos θ

A

B FV

F θ

FH C

D

**FV = F sin θ FH = F cos θ
**

The ‘cos’ component is always the one next to the angle.

Question

Calculate the vertical and horizontal components if F = 4N and θ = 35o. FV = F sin θ = 4 x sin 35o = 4 x 0.5736 FV = 2.29 N FH = F cos θ = 4 x cos 35o = 4 x 0.8192 FH = 3.28 N

FV F θ

FH

Inclined planes

Components need not be vertical and horizontal. In the example opposite the weight of the block W has components parallel, F1 and perpendicular F2 to the inclined plane . Calculate these components if the block’s weight is 250N and the angle of the plane 20o. F2 is the component next to the angle and is therefore the cosine component. F2 = W cos θ = 250 x cos 20o = 250 x 0.9397 F2 = component perpendicular to the plane = 235 N F1 = W sin θ = 250 x sin 20o = 250 x 0.3420 F1 = component parallel to the plane = 85.5 N F1 θ = 20o θ F2 W = 250N

**The moment of a force
**

Also known as the turning effect of a force.

The moment of a force about any point is defined as: force x perpendicular distance from the turning point to the line of action of the force

moment = F x d

Unit: newton-metre (Nm) Moments can be either CLOCKWISE or ANTICLOCKWISE

Force F exerting an ANTICLOCKWISE moment through the spanner on the nut

Question

Calculate the moments of the 25N and 40N forces on the door in the diagram opposite.

40N 25N

moment = F x d For the 25N force: moment = 25N x 1.2m = 30 Nm CLOCKWISE For the 40N force: moment = 40N x 0.70m = 28 Nm ANTICLOCKWISE

door

1.2 m

hinge

**Couples and Torque
**

A couple is a pair of equal and opposite forces acting on a body, but not along the same line. In the diagram above: total moment of couple = F x + F(d - x) = F d = One of the forces x the distance between the forces Torque is another name for the total moment of a couple.

**The principle of moments
**

When an object is in equilibrium (e.g. balanced):

the sum of the = anticlockwise moments the sum of the clockwise moments

If the ruler above is in equilibrium: W1 d1 = W2 d2

**Complete for a ruler in equilibrium:
**

W1 5N 4N 6N d1 20 cm 15 cm 12 cm cm 12 W2 10 N 6N 2N d2 10 cm 10 cm 36 cm

8N N 8

25 cm

2N

100 cm

Centre of mass

The centre of mass of a body is the point through which a single force on the body has no turning effect.

The centre of mass is also the place through which all the weight of a body can be considered to act. The ‘single force’ in the definition could be a supporting contact force. e.g. from a finger below a metre ruler. The diagram opposite shows the method for finding the centre of mass of a piece of card.

Question

Calculate the weight of the beam, W0 if it is in equilibrium when: W1 = 6N; d1 = 12 cm; d0 = 36 cm.

Applying the principle of moments: W1 d1 = W0 d0 6N x 12 cm = W0 x 36 cm W0 = 72 / 36 W0 the weight of the beam = 2N

Equilibrium

When a body is in equilibrium it will EITHER be at rest OR move with a constant linear and rotational velocity. Conditions required for equilibrium: 1. The resultant force acting on the body must be zero. 2. The principle of moments must apply about any point on the body.

**Equilibrium with three forces
**

Three forces acting on a body in equilibrium will form a closed triangle.

S W

F Triangle of forces

Question 1

The rod shown opposite is held horizontal by two wires. If the weight of the rod is 60N calculate the values of the tension forces in the wires

If the rod is in equilibrium: 1. Resultant force = zero Therefore: W = T1 + T2 = 60N

60 cm T1

120 cm

T2

W = 60N

2. Principle of moments applies about any point. Let the point of contact of T1 be the pivot. total clockwise moments = total anticlockwise moments 60N x 60 cm = T2 x 180 cm T2 = 3600 / 180 T2 = 20 N and so T1 = 40 N

Question 2

The hinged rod shown opposite is held horizontal by a single wire. Find the force exerted by the hinge.

30o

30 cm

T = 100N H

**If the rod is in equilibrium then the three forces acting, W, T & H will form a closed triangle.
**

A 30o H

50 cm

W = 60N By calculation !!!:

θ

θ

W = 60N

**By scale drawing:
**

H = 87 N θ = 7o

Angle A = 60o (angles in a triangle) Applying the cosine rule: H 2 = T 2 + W 2 – 2TW cosA = 1002 + 602 – 2(100x60) x cos 60o = 10000 + 3600 – (12000 x 0.5) = 7600 H = 87.2 N Applying the sine rule: H / sin A = W / sin (θ + 30) 87.2 / sin 60 = 60 / sin (θ + 30) 87.2 / 0.866 = 60 / sin (θ + 30) 100.7 = 60 / sin (θ + 30) sin (θ + 30) = 60 / 100.7 = 0.596 θ + 30 = 36.6o θ = 6.6o
