Physics <ul><li>The goal of physics is to use a small number of basic concepts, equations, and assumptions to describe the physical world. </li></ul><ul><li>These physics principles can then be used to make predictions about a broad range of phenomena. </li></ul><ul><li>Physics discoveries often turn out to have unexpected practical applications, and advances in technology can in turn lead to new physics discoveries. </li></ul>Chapter 1 Section 1 What Is Physics?

The Scientific Method <ul><li>There is no single procedure that scientists follow in their work. However, there are certain steps common to all good scientific investigations. </li></ul><ul><li>These steps are called the scientific method. </li></ul>Chapter 1 Section 1 What Is Physics?
10.
The Scientific Method Chapter 1 Section 1 What Is Physics?
11.
Models <ul><li>Physics uses models that describe phenomena. </li></ul><ul><li>A model is a pattern, plan, representation, or description designed to show the structure or workings of an object, system, or concept. </li></ul><ul><li>A set of particles or interacting components considered to be a distinct physical entity for the purpose of study is called a system. </li></ul>Chapter 1 Section 1 What Is Physics?
13.
Hypotheses <ul><li>Models help scientists develop hypotheses. </li></ul><ul><li>A hypothesis is an explanation that is based on prior scientific research or observations and that can be tested. </li></ul><ul><li>The process of simplifying and modeling a situation can help you determine the relevant variables and identify a hypothesis for testing. </li></ul>Chapter 1 Section 1 What Is Physics?
14.
Hypotheses, continued <ul><li>Galileo modeled the behavior of falling objects in order to develop a hypothesis about how objects fall. </li></ul>Chapter 1 If heavier objects fell faster than slower ones,would two bricks of different masses tied together fall slower (b) or faster (c) than the heavy brick alone (a)? Because of this contradiction, Galileo hypothesized instead that all objects fall at the same rate, as in (d). Section 1 What Is Physics?
15.
Controlled Experiments <ul><li>A hypothesis must be tested in a controlled experiment. </li></ul><ul><li>A controlled experiment tests only one factor at a time by using a comparison of a control group with an experimental group. </li></ul>Chapter 1 Section 1 What Is Physics?

Objectives <ul><li>List basic SI units and the quantities they describe. </li></ul><ul><li>Convert measurements into scientific notation. </li></ul><ul><li>Distinguish between accuracy and precision. </li></ul><ul><li>Use significant figures in measurements and calculations. </li></ul>Section 2 Measurements in Experiments Chapter 1
18.
Numbers as Measurements <ul><li>In SI, the standard measurement system for science, there are seven base units. </li></ul><ul><li>Each base unit describes a single dimension, such as length, mass, or time. </li></ul><ul><li>The units of length, mass, and time are the meter (m), kilogram (kg), and second (s), respectively. </li></ul><ul><li>Derived units are formed by combining the seven base units with multiplication or division. For example, speeds are typically expressed in units of meters per second (m/s). </li></ul>Section 2 Measurements in Experiments Chapter 1
19.
SI Standards Chapter 1 Section 2 Measurements in Experiments
20.
SI Prefixes <ul><li>In SI, units are combined with prefixes that symbolize certain powers of 10. The most common prefixes and their symbols are shown in the table. </li></ul>Section 2 Measurements in Experiments Chapter 1
21.
Dimensions and Units <ul><li>Measurements of physical quantities must be expressed in units that match the dimensions of that quantity. </li></ul><ul><li>In addition to having the correct dimension, measurements used in calculations should also have the same units. </li></ul>Section 2 Measurements in Experiments Chapter 1 For example, when determining area by multiplying length and width, be sure the measurements are expressed in the same units.

Sample Problem <ul><li>A typical bacterium has a mass of about 2.0 fg. Express </li></ul><ul><li>this measurement in terms of grams and kilograms. </li></ul>Section 2 Measurements in Experiments Chapter 1 Given: mass = 2.0 fg Unknown: mass = ? g mass = ? kg
24.
Sample Problem, continued Section 2 Measurements in Experiments Chapter 1 Build conversion factors from the relationships given in Table 3 of the textbook. Two possibilities are: Only the first one will cancel the units of femtograms to give units of grams.
25.
Sample Problem, continued Section 2 Measurements in Experiments Chapter 1 Take the previous answer, and use a similar process to cancel the units of grams to give units of kilograms.
26.
Accuracy and Precision <ul><li>Accuracy is a description of how close a measurement is to the correct or accepted value of the quantity measured. </li></ul><ul><li>Precision is the degree of exactness of a measurement. </li></ul><ul><li>A numeric measure of confidence in a measurement or result is known as uncertainty. A lower uncertainty indicates greater confidence. </li></ul>Section 2 Measurements in Experiments Chapter 1

Significant Figures <ul><li>It is important to record the precision of your measurements so that other people can understand and interpret your results. </li></ul><ul><li>A common convention used in science to indicate precision is known as significant figures. </li></ul><ul><li>Significant figures are those digits in a measurement that are known with certainty plus the first digit that is uncertain. </li></ul>Section 2 Measurements in Experiments Chapter 1

Objectives <ul><li>Interpret data in tables and graphs, and recognize equations that summarize data. </li></ul><ul><li>Distinguish between conventions for abbreviating units and quantities. </li></ul><ul><li>Use dimensional analysis to check the validity of equations. </li></ul><ul><li>Perform order-of-magnitude calculations. </li></ul>Section 3 The Language of Physics Chapter 1
37.
Mathematics and Physics <ul><li>Tables, graphs, and equations can make data easier to understand. </li></ul><ul><li>For example, consider an experiment to test Galileo’s hypothesis that all objects fall at the same rate in the absence of air resistance. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>In this experiment, a table-tennis ball and a golf ball are dropped in a vacuum. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The results are recorded as a set of numbers corresponding to the times of the fall and the distance each ball falls. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A convenient way to organize the data is to form a table, as shown on the next slide. </li></ul></ul>Chapter 1 Section 3 The Language of Physics
38.
Data from Dropped-Ball Experiment Chapter 1 Section 3 The Language of Physics A clear trend can be seen in the data. The more time that passes after each ball is dropped, the farther the ball falls.
39.
Graph from Dropped-Ball Experiment Chapter 1 Section 3 The Language of Physics One method for analyzing the data is to construct a graph of the distance the balls have fallen versus the elapsed time since they were released. The shape of the graph provides information about the relationship between time and distance.

Interpreting Graphs Chapter 1 Section 3 The Language of Physics
41.
Physics Equations <ul><li>Physicists use equations to describe measured or predicted relationships between physical quantities. </li></ul><ul><li>Variables and other specific quantities are abbreviated with letters that are boldfaced or italicized . </li></ul><ul><li>Units are abbreviated with regular letters, sometimes called roman letters. </li></ul><ul><li>Two tools for evaluating physics equations are dimensional analysis and order-of-magnitude estimates. </li></ul>Chapter 1 Section 3 The Language of Physics
42.
Equation from Dropped-Ball Experiment <ul><li>We can use the following equation to describe the relationship between the variables in the dropped-ball experiment: </li></ul><ul><li>(change in position in meters) = 4.9 (time in seconds) 2 </li></ul><ul><li>With symbols, the word equation above can be written as follows : </li></ul><ul><ul><li> y = 4.9( t ) 2 </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The Greek letter (delta) means “change in.” The abbreviation y indicates the vertical change in a ball’s position from its starting point, and t indicates the time elapsed. </li></ul><ul><li>This equation allows you to reproduce the graph and make predictions about the change in position for any time. </li></ul>Chapter 1 Section 3 The Language of Physics
