Bellwork 2/2/2011 A penny dropped into a wishing well reaches the bottom in 1.50 seconds. What was the velocity at impact? In a bizarre but harmless accident, Superman fell from the top of the Eiffel Tower. How fast was Superman traveling when he hit the ground 7.8 seconds after falling?

Bellwork!!! 2/1/2011 Write down two examples of each of Newton’s three laws. Newton’s 1st Newton’s 2nd Newton’s 3rd Video
Gravity Force on an object due to gravity = weight On Earth, your weight is simply the amount of gravitational force exerted on you by the Earth. Weight = mass * free fall acceleration W=mg Weight is measured in Newton’s (because it is a force)
Free fall-when Earth’s gravity is the only force acting on an object Satellites and the space station are in constant free fall. When air resistance and weight are equal-objects meet terminal velocity. Projectile Motion=the curved path followed by an object that is thrown, launched, or otherwise projected near the surface of Earth.
Newton’s 3rd Law-For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction
Conservation of Momentum The total momentum of two or more objects after they collide is the same as it was before the collision.
Momentum-product of the mass and velocity of an object P=mv
