• ### Grade 8 Forces Presentation

1. 1. Grade 8 Science Forces and Their Effects http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Jal.747.newcolours.arp.750pix.jpg
2. 2. The Solar System What keeps the planets moving? http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Solar_sys.jpg
3. 3. Forces <ul><li>A force is a push or a pull.
4. 4. Forces are measured in Newtons, after Isaac Newton.
5. 5. What force is required to: 1. open a drawer 2. untie a shoe lace 3. turn on a tap (difficult) 4. lift your pencil case. </li></ul>http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Isaac-newton_1.jpg
6. 6. Gravity <ul><li>Gravity is a very weak but important force.
7. 7. Gravity pulls everything together.
8. 8. We notice it as pulling us down towards the Earth.
9. 9. Gravity also pulls the Earth towards the sun. </li></ul>http://www.icteachers.co.uk/children/sats/gravity.htm
10. 10. Mass and Weight <ul><li>Mass measures “quantity of matter”. It is measured in kilograms (kg).
11. 11. Weight measures the force of gravity. It is measured in Newtons (N).
12. 12. Short task: Measure the mass and weight force of four items in the laboratory. </li></ul>Item Mass (kg) Weight (N) Find something with a weight force of 1 Newton.
13. 13. Mass and Weight Relationship <ul><li>The relationship between mass and weight is:
14. 14. Weight (Newtons) = mass (kilograms) * 10
15. 15. We MUST convert grams to kilograms first. 10 is the value of gravity on Earth.
16. 16. Calculate the weight force of a 60kg person, an 800 kg car and a 50 gram feather. </li></ul>
17. 17. Gravity on Earth <ul><li>Weight = mass * 10 - on Earth only.
18. 18. In space, weight force is nearly zero.
19. 19. Every place in the universe has its own number for gravity. 1. Calculate the weight force of a 60kg person on The Moon (1.7), Mercury (4), or Jupiter (2.6). 2. Explain why things weigh more on Jupiter. 3. What is wrong (scientifically speaking) with saying: “I weigh seventy kilograms.” </li></ul>
20. 20. Quick Review <ul><li>Explain the difference between mass and weight, in your own words.
21. 21. What is the weight of a 2kg object (on Earth)?
22. 22. Calculate the weight of a 200g object (on Earth). </li></ul>
23. 23. Aristotle's Theory of Motion <ul><li>Aristotle was a Greek philosopher who lived around 384-322 BCE.
24. 24. He developed a theory of motion (=???) which survived about 2000 years, until about 1600. Who disproved Aristotle's theories?
25. 25. Stars (including planets) were fixed on large spheres, which moved in perfect circles around the Earth, and explained the movement of stars in the sky.
26. 26. There were about 50 spheres moving in total. </li></ul>http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Aristotle_Altemps_Inv8575.jpg

28. 28. The Four Elements <ul><li>Everything “under the moon” (on Earth) was made of a combination of five elements: earth, air, fire and water.
29. 29. Fire was the lightest, then air, then water, then earth.
30. 30. Everything, if left alone, would move to its “natural state” and stop moving.
31. 31. Iron was mostly Earth, whereas wood had some earth, some water and some air. </li></ul>
32. 32. The Four Elements
33. 33. What's in these? http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Elliotts_car.jpg http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Balloons-aj.svg http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Air_.pollution_1.jpg
34. 34. Violent Motion <ul><li>Violent motion was the opposite of natural motion.
35. 35. Violent motion is caused by living things applying a force to something. When the force stops, the motion stops. </li></ul>http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/a/a2/Pushing_van_together.jpg

Suggest a reason why Newton's laws were accepted immediately by the scientific community. 4.Use Newton's laws of motion to explain why an arrow flies so far after being released from a stretched bow. Why doesn't it fly forever? 5. Research: Which famous scientist first challenged Newton's laws of motion? Why do we still teach it, even though Newton's laws are technically not correct? </ul>
38. 38. Falling Objects <ul><li>Aristotle believed that heavier objects would fall faster, but never tested it.
39. 39. Galileo Galilei is famous for being the first in recorded history to test whether heavier objects actually fall faster.
40. 40. Conclusion: all objects fall at about the same speed. </li></ul>http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Leaning_Tower_of_Pisa.jpg
41. 41. Newton's Laws of Motion <ul><li>Isaac Newton devised three laws of motion which explained how all objects move, from particles of air to planets in the Solar System.
42. 42. They linked is law of Gravity with Kepler's Laws of planetary motion. </li></ul>http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Newton_-_Principia_(1687),_title,_p._5,_color.jpg

86. 86. Work in group of 3, 4 or 5.
87. 87. Safety:
88. 88. No one is allowed on the road at any time (except crossing it at the proper crossing).
89. 89. Signals should not distract cars. Write up a plan as a google doc for each group, and share it with me. It should include the names of each member of the group, and a detailed plan. It might help to have a table printed ready to go. </li></ul>
90. 90. <ul>1. Compare your results to others in the class. Who is the fastest a) runner? b) walker? 2. The result obtained is an average speed. Explain what is meant by an average speed. You may need to do some research for this question. 3. Two years ago in Berlin, Usain Bolt from Jamaica set the world record for the 100m sprint, coming in at 9.58s. Calculate his average speed, and compare it to the fastest student in the class. 4. A. Convert your group's walking and sprinting speed to km/h. This may requires some thought. B. Use this, and google maps (directions) to calculate how long it would take to walk AND run to i) your home ii) Tokyo tower </ul>
91. 91. Friction <ul><li>Friction is a force which opposes motion.
92. 92. It is always in the opposite direction to motion.
93. 93. Friction can occur between two surfaces. Air friction (drag) occurs when an object moves in the atmosphere (or another fluid). </li></ul>http://www.physics4kids.com/files/art/motion_friction1_240.jpg
94. 94. Parachute What factors would determine how strong air resistance is? http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Ronde_parachute.png
95. 95. Streamlining <ul><li>Streamlining is the shaping of a (usually fast-moving) object to minimise air resistance. </li></ul>http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Shinkansen_Nozomi_in_Tokyo.jpg
96. 96. Acceleration <ul><li>Newton's ____ law refers to acceleration.
97. 97. Acceleration is a constant change of speed. eg. Something starts at rest. After 5 seconds, it is travelling 10m/s. After 10 seconds, it is travelling 20m/s. How fast will it be travelling after 20 seconds? The acceleration of the object is __________. </li></ul>
98. 99. Terminal Velocity <ul><li>Friction increases as speed increases.
99. 100. Eventually the forces of friction and gravity are equal and opposite, so cancel each other out.
100. 101. Newton's first law then applies, and the object keeps moving in the same speed and direction (downwards).
101. 102. The fastest speed something can fall is called its terminal velocity.
102. 103. Factors which affect terminal velocity:
103. 104. Skydivers reach a terminal velocity of 190km/h (belly first) or 300km/h (head first). </li></ul>http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Skydiver_on_back_of_partner_and_giving_thumbs_up.jpg

170. 171. Assume I walk at 3 m/s and run at 7 m/s. </li></ul>Source: Google Maps
171. 172. Pressure <ul><li>Air and water particles move around and push on everything around them. This is called pressure.
172. 173. As the temperature of the liquid or gas increases, the particles move faster, increasing the pressure.
173. 174. Air and water pressure increases as depth increases, because the pressure needs to support more weight on top.
174. 175. The air pressure at sea level is about 100 000 Pa. This means that a cubic metre could support a weight of __________kg if there were no air pressure from above. </li></ul>

177. 178. Why doesn't it explode? </li></ul>
178. 179. Sucking Liquid Up A Straw <ul><li>When we “suck” liquid up a straw, we don't suck it up. We suck the air out of a straw, and the atmosphere pushes the liquid up the straw.
179. 180. Would it be possible to suck water up a straw on the moon? </li></ul>http://www.one-school.net/Malaysia/UniversityandCollege/SPM/revisioncard/physics/forceandpressure/appatmosphericpressure.html
180. 181. Questions <ul><li>Explain why the can was crushed in the water.
181. 182. Explain why pressure around us is so high, but we cannot feel it.
182. 183. Explain why it is not possible for humans to swim too deep.
183. 184. Given that atmospheric pressure is about 100 000 Pa, show that a square meter could support 10000kg (about 15 cars).
184. 185. Calculate the weight force on 1cm 2 of air at sea level, assuming the atmospheric pressure above. </li></ul>
185. 186. Hydraulics <ul><li>Pascal's Law states that the pressure is the same anywhere in a fluid (except when depth changes).
186. 187. Pressure = Force / Area.
187. 188. Force =
188. 189. The force is the same everywhere in a fluid.
189. 190. A larger area makes a greater force.
190. 191. Machines apply this principle to lift heavy objects. This is known as hydraulics. </li></ul>http://home.wxs.nl/~brink494/hydr_e.htm
191. 192. Siphon <ul><li>Siphoning is making a liquid flow briefly uphill and then end up below where it started. </li></ul>Please see this image for the idea but ignore the measurements on it as these are beyond G8 level: http://www.pump-zone.com/images/stories/piping/siphons%20and%20effect%201.jpg
192. 193. Questions <ul>1. Explain how hydraulics can be used to lift very heavy objects. </ul>2. A large car has a mass of 1000kg and sits on a hydraulic lift with an area of 2m 2 . The lever has an area of 0.5 m 2. . Calculate how much force will be required to lift the car. Diagrams deleted but unnecessary to answer the questions.
