- 1. PROJECTILE MOTION constant acceleration in a straight line; free fall under gravity, projectile motion; Relative motion, change in velocity, velocity vector components, circular motion (constant speed with one force only providing centripetal force). 1. Recall that in the absence of friction a falling object will have a constant acceleration of 10 ms-2 and that this value is referred to as “gravitational acceleration, g” 2. Use F = mg to show that Nkg-1 is an equivalent unit to ms-2. 3. Explain the effect that air friction has on the acceleration of a falling object (resulting in free fall) 4. Define the term projectile. 5. Describe projectile motion in terms of its uniform horizontal motion and it accelerated vertical motion. 6. Use equations of motion to calculate time, distance, velocity and acceleration. Monday, 24 May 2010
- 2. FREE FALL IN THE ABSENCE OF FRICTION Mass & weight The mass of an object, m is a measure of the amount of matter in that object. The weight of an object, Fw is a measure of the force due to gravity on that object. Gravitational constant, g The force exerted on an object by the earth’s gravitational field is called the gravitational constant, g. What g = 10 Nkg -1 does this mean? This means that for every kg of mass there is a force of 10N acting on it because of gravity This causes all objects to fall with an acceleration of 10 ms-2 We can also say g = 10 ms-2 which is called gravitational acceleration Fw = mg Monday, 24 May 2010

- 16. FREE FALL - IN THE PRESENCE OF FRICTION If the object is falling fast: Air friction is too large to ignore. Here we consider the object to have two forces acting on it. Air friction and gravity. A. When the object is initially falling slowly, air friction is much smaller than the force of gravity on the object. B. As the object speeds up the air friction increases. C. The object will eventually reach a speed at which the air friction balances the force of gravity on the object. The object cannot fall any faster than at this speed (unless it changes shape). This speed is called terminal velocity. This situation is illustrated by the following example: B A C Vector arithmetic with notes Monday, 24 May 2010

- 41. Forces The force due to gravity is the only force acting on the projectile. Not a projectile: An object in horizontal flight is not a projectile Fgrav because Fgrav is balanced by the lift force. An object that has not been launched but maintains a high horizontal speed will have air friction acting on it and therefore must have a thrust force to balance air friction. This will not be a projectile. Vertical motion calculations • Since the force of gravity is constant (10 N per kg of any object), the acceleration is also constant. (10 ms-2 for any object) • Kinematic equations must be used for analysing the vertical motion Horizontal motion calculations • A projectile progresses horizontally with constant speed. • Horizontal speed can be calculated in the usual way: Speed = distance travelled v=d time taken t Units of v: ms-1 Monday, 24 May 2010
- 42. PROCESS FOR PROBLEM-SOLVING [PIA] 1. Read the question and underline the relevant information 2. Draw a diagram of the situation 3. List the information that relates to the vertical motion and the horizontal motion. (Keeping it separate. Use a table with two columns “V” & “H”, remembering that vertical and horizontal motion are independent of each other) 4. Show up as a positive direction and down as negative. The signs that you use for the vertical information should reflect this. 5. Select the appropriate kinematic equation when calculating a vertical quantity. 6. Use v = d/t for calculation of a horizontal quantity. Example 1 Imagine a car is driven off a 250m cliff at 30 ms-1. How far from the base of the cliff will the car be when it lands?

- 50. UNIFORM CIRCULAR MOTION 1. Recognize that even though a body in circular motion may have a constant speed, its velocity is changing and hence it is accelerating. 2. Demonstrate that the acceleration is towards the centre, i.e. centripetal. 3. Deduce that all things in circular motion must have a centripetal force. 4. Show graphically using velocity vectors that the acceleration is towards the centre. 5. Remember the equations for uniform circular motion questions, and use them to solve problems: Read Chapter 12 (p139 to 145) Monday, 24 May 2010
- 51. BRAINSTORM Give me some everyday examples of objects in uniform circular motion Complete the functional definition below: An object in uniform circular object is _____________________________________ ___________________________________________________________________ Monday, 24 May 2010
- 52. CENTRIPETAL ACCELERATION For an object in uniform circular motion: • The speed is always the same • but the direction is always changing Therefore the velocity is always changing and so the object is always accelerating “remember that acceleration is the rate of change in velocity.” REMEMBER Centripetal acceleration: THIS --> • Constant in size • Direction is always changing • Direction is towards the centre of the circular path Monday, 24 May 2010
- 53. MORE EVIDENCE FOR AN ACCELERATION TOWARDS THE CENTRE For each 0.1 s time interval, determine ∆v. When you carry out the vector ~ ~ subtractions required, do so by leaving vf in the position drawn (below). ~ ~ ~ ∆t = 0.01 s vi ~ vf ~ . vi ~ vf ~ ∆t = 0.01 s Comment on the size and direction of the change in velocity vector: Monday, 24 May 2010
- 54. CENTRIPETAL FORCE “Acceleration is caused by an unbalanced force so now we can say something about the force acting on an object in circular motion” Centripetal force: • Constant in size REMEMBER • Direction is always changing THIS --> • Direction is towards the centre of the circular path “Does this sound familiar??” Note • Greater speeds will require greater forces. • Force in uniform circular motion changes direction not speed Monday, 24 May 2010
- 55. The carousel WHAT DO WE MEAN BY UNBALANCED FORCE? The force acting through the rope Tension The force acting vertically downwards Gravity “Tension on its own does not cause circular motion” UNBALANCED FORCE “Gravity on its own does not cause circular motion” • A combination of these two forces is called the unbalanced force. • It is the unbalanced force that causes the uniform circular motion Monday, 24 May 2010

EQUATIONS FOR UNIFORM CIRCULAR Consider a mass in uniform circular motion with speed v and a radius of circular path, r: v = velocity (ms-1) v ~ ~ m F = Force (N) F ~ ~ P a = acceleration (ms-2) a ~ ~ r r = radius of the circular path (m) (measured from the centre of the path to the centre of mass of the object. m = mass of the object (kg) velocity is at a tangent to At any point: the circular path Speed The speed is given by the distance travelled around the circular path divided by the time taken to travel that distance. v=d t Monday, 24 May 2010
- 57. Note that the distance travelled in a complete rotation is the circumference, C. C = 2 πr Period and frequency • The Period, T is the time the object takes to move through one complete rotation. (Unit: second, s) • The frequency, f is the number of revolutions performed per second. (Unit: Hertz, Hz or s-1)) T=1 f=1 and f T Acceleration and force Experiment shows that: ac = v2 ac = centripetal acceleration r Fc = centripetal force Fc = mv2 r since F = ma Monday, 24 May 2010
