Using Vectors on Motion Diagrams

answer

â€˘In two dimensions, an object's displacement is a vector:
â€˘The velocity vector is simply the displacement vector multiplied by the scalar (1/change in t)
â€˘Consequently the velocity vector points in the direction of the displacement.
velocity vector= d vector (both x and y components)/ change in time

question

Acceleration in Two Dimensions

answer

â€˘The vector definition of acceleration is a straightforward extension of the one-dimensional version: change in acceleration vector=change in velocity vector (vf-vi)/ change in time
â€˘There is an acceleration whenever there is a change in velocity. Velocity can change in either or both of two possible ways:
1. The magnitude can change, indicating a change in speed.
2. The direction of motion can change, indicating a change in direction.

question

A particle undergoes acceleration a ? while moving from point 1 to point 2. Which of the choices shows the velocity vector (v_2 ) ? as the object moves away from point 2

answer

find Vf component (y component) of acceleration vector

acceleration is perpendicular to velocity
-velocity is tangent to the circle and a is perpendicular to v, pointing toward the center
to find the change in velocity vector, subtract the velocity at point 1 from the velocity at point2
-the acceleration vector points in the same direction as the change in velocity vector, so toward the center of the circel

question

mass vs weight

answer

Mass is an inherent property of an object. The object can be relocated and the mass will not change.
Weight is the force on the object due to the gravitational attraction of a large astronomical body. That body can be the Earth, the moon, Mars, etc. Weight is not an inherent property of the object.
Mass and weight are linked through w=mg. Here on earth, we sometimes interchange the words in our everyday conversation.

question

â€˘At the first plateau, the jumper is standing still. Draw a FBD for the jumper and determine the jumper's weight and his mass.
â€˘
â€˘
â€˘At the second plateau, the jumper is accelerating upwards. Draw an FBD and determine the net force acting on the jumper. Hint: It is not 2000 N.
â€˘
â€˘Determine the jumper's acceleration.
â€˘
â€˘Determine the jumper's speed as he leaves the ground. Let's assume that he accelerates for 0.25 s.
â€˘
â€˘Determine the jumper's maximum height.

answer

-at first plateau, standing still-FBD
N and W n=weight=1000N
weight=mg 1000N=m(10N/kg) m-100kg
at second plateau: N is largeer than weight (2000N vs. 1000N) Fnet=2000-1000=1000N up
acceleration: 1000N=a(100kg) a=10m/s^2
accelerates for 0.25sec: speed/velocity as leaves ground: change in V=(10m/s^2)(0.25s)= 2.5m/s
starts from 0, so Vf=2.5m/s
max height: at top of jump Vf=0 vi=2.5m/s

question

Apparent Weight

answer

Your sensation of weight is due to the contact forces supporting you. In most situations we call this supporting force the normal force. However, when we are concentrating on a human and what they are "feeling", we frequently refer to this as the apparent weight.
To find the apparent weight of somebody in an elevator, draw a FBD and then apply Newton's second law.

question

maximum static friction force

answer

the maximum friction force measured just before the impending motion of an object
A system can only supply a certain amount of static friction. This is called the maximum static friction, fs,max. If the magnitude of the force F is larger than the magnitude of the maximum static friction for the system, the box will begin to slide.
The maximum static friction amount for a system can only be determined by experimental investigation. (empirically).

e.The acceleration of the 20-kg-block is more than that of the 10-kg-block.
f.The velocity of the 20-kg-block is more than that of the 10-kg-block.

answer

a.The acceleration of both blocks is the same.
b.The velocity of both blocks is the same.
rope does not crumple up and is not elastic

question

A rope connects two boxes(1 10kg, 1 20kg). A second rope is attached to the yellow box and maintains a tension of 300 N. The floor is frictionless.
(a)Determine the acceleration of each block.
Determine the tension in the rope attaching the green box to the yellow box.

answer

acceleration is the same: so circle both boxes, draw FBD with n, t=300N, and w
accerleration = 300N/60kg= 5m/s^2
determine tension in rope: cute off one box: now n, T, and W
ax=fnetx/m=5m/s^2
5=T/20kg T=100N

question

Conservation Laws
Conservation of Linear Momentum
Conservation of Angular Momentum
Conservation of Energy
Conservation of Mass
what does conservation mean?
what is the system?

answer

The word conservation means that the quantity does not change. What we usually mean is that under some set of conditions, the quantity does not change.
Systemâ€”composed of interacting objects

question

Collisions

answer

short-duration interaction between two objects
The interaction between the foot and the soccer ball is a collision.

question

impusle

answer

Impulse, J, is the area under the curve

question

impulse is also

answer

The F vs t curve is complicated, so we use the concept of average force.
= Fave ?t

question

impulse causes

answer

Impulse causes a change in the motion of an object.

question

The figure shows a force versus time data for the bounce of a ball.
â€˘What is the impulse on (or delivered to) the ball?
â€˘
â€˘What is the average force on the ball?

answer

J=area under curve
=.5(0.008s)(300N) =1.2N
average force: Fave x change in time=J
1.2N/0.008s=Fave Fave=150N

question

when the stick is in contact with the puck, it exerts a force Fave on the puck, causing it to accelerate

answer

Fave only acts for a short time. It is an impulsive force. We want to find out how it changes the velocity of the puck.
We will start analyzing the problem with Newton's second law. As a result of the analysis, we will find a new quantity called momentum.

question

momentum
Impulse and momentum are vector quantities.

answer

initial momentum + impulse= final momentum
change in momentum=impulse
change in momentum=Fave x change in t

question

Rank the objects according to the magnitudes of the momentum, smallest to largest.

answer

mass x velocity= momentum

question

Two 1.0 kg stationary cue balls are struck by cue sticks. The cues exert the forces shown. Which ball has the greater final speed?

answer

same final speed-b/c impulse is the same b/c area is same

question

A 2.0 kg object moving to the right with speed 0.50 m/s experiences the force shown. What are the object's speed and direction after the force ends?

answer

impulse= 2*.5 = 1Ns etc.

question

A light plastic cart and a heavy steel cart are both pushed with the same force for 1.0 s, starting from rest. After the force is removed, the momentum of the light plastic cart is _____ that of the heavy steel cart.

answer

equal to
same impulse b/c same force x sec=same impulse=same momentum
velocity of smaller mass cart will be larger

question

Practical Implications of the Impulse-Momentum Theorem
?p ?= F ?_ave ?t
if the change in momentum occurs over a long time, the hitting force is ____
if the change in momentum occurs over a short time, the hitting force is ___

answer

is small
large

question

being punched moving into force
moving away from force

answer

into: increase force b/c decreasing the collision time
away: decrease force b/c increasing collision time
-impulse delivered in longer amount of time, but same magnitude, so force decreases
