What is its acceleration at maximum height? 7.4 m • What is the maximum height that the ball will reach? • What will be the velocity of the ball after 2.0 seconds? -7.6 m/s
5. VECTORS• Difference between scalar and vector quantities • What are some examples of each?• Breaking vector into its components• Solving for resultant vectors by adding or subtracting two vectors
6. PROJECTILE MOTION• Concepts behind projectile motion • Projectile motion is anything that has an initial horizontal velocity that is under the influence of free-fall • X & y dimensions of motion are completely independent of one another • What happens in the x-direction? • What happens in the y-direction?• What is range? At what angle does any object have maximum range?• Problems with initial horizontal velocity• Problems with projectiles launched at an angle.
7. FORCES• Newton’s laws and how they apply in various situations • What is Newton’s first law? Second law? Third?• Drawing free-body diagram• Problems with friction on an inclined plane• Problems with friction on a level surface• Problems with a force applied at an angle• Calculating coefficients of kinetic and static friction.
7. FORCES• A student moves a box of books down the hall by pulling on a rope attached to the box. The student pulls with a force of 185 N at an angle of 25.0 degrees above the horizontal. The box has a mass of 35.0 kg and the coefficient of friction between the box and floor is 0.27. Find the acceleration of the box. -1.2 m/s2
7. FORCES • What is the net force on each object? FN = 10 NFf = 3 N Fa = 5 N Mg = 10 N FN = 10 N FN = 10 N Ff = 3 N Fa = 1 N Ff = 3 N Fa = 3 N Mg = 10 N Mg = 10 N
HOT TASK• What does the normal force do? 4.0 kg• How can we find the normal in both situations shown? 15o 15o
NEWTON’S ACTIVITIES• When a constant force is applied to something, should the speed increase? Should it stay the same? • Use Newton’s Second law and think about the scooter activity – did speed change as force was constant? Did acceleration change?• Explain how Newton’s first law applies in a car when wearing a seatbelt vs. without a seatbelt.
Example: force applied at an angleSuppose a 10.0 kg box is pulled at an angle of 30.0 degrees with a force of 50.0 Newtons. F ¹ mg! Na) Calculate the normal force of the box å FY = 0 ® FN + Fay - Fg = 0 FN + Fay = mg FN = mg - Fay ® (10)(9.8) - 50sin30 FN = 73Na) If the block is accelerating at 1.5 m/s/s, calculate the coefficient of friction.

EXAMPLE: FORCE APPLIED AT ANGLE#5 from handout last week:A 120.0 N force is applied at an angle of 45 degrees to a 40.0 kg box. The coefficient offriction between the two surfaces is 0.15.

NEWTON’S THIRD LAW“For every action there is an EQUAL and OPPOSITE reaction. • This law focuses on action/reaction pairs (forces) • They NEVER cancel out All you do is SWITCH the wording! •PERSON on WALL •WALL on PERSON
NEWTON’S THIRD LAW• How does this law apply when there is a collision between two objects, like a train and a truck??
NEWTON’S THIRD LAW This figure shows the force during a collision between a truck and a train. You can clearly see the forces are EQUAL and OPPOSITE. To help you understand the law better, look at this situation from the point of view of Newton’s Second Law. Ftruck = Ftrain What about mass & acceleration just after collision? mtruck Atruck = Mtraina trainThere is a balance between the mass and acceleration. One object usuallyhas a LARGE MASS and a SMALL ACCELERATION, while the other has aSMALL MASS (comparatively) and a LARGE ACCELERATION.

NEWTON’S FIRST LAWConcepts Problems• What is it? • What type of problems apply? • An object in motion will remain in motion, or an object at rest will remain at rest unless acted upon 4.0 kg by an unbalanced force.• Fnet = 0 • What conditions can occur? 4.0 kg • Object can be at rest • Object can be in constant motion at a constant speed
