Dimensional Analysis
 Dimensional analysis is used to check mathematical
relations for the consistency of their dimensions.
 Applying dimensional analysis to x = vt .

 The dimension on the left of the equals sign matches that

on the right, so this relation is dimensionally correct.
Scalars and Vectors
 A scalar quantity is one that can be described with a
single number (including any units) giving its size or
magnitude. Some other common scalars are
temperature (e.g., 20 C) and mass (e.g., 85 kg).
 A quantity that deals inherently with both magnitude
and direction is called a vector quantity. Examples
are displacement and velocity.

Forces and Newton's Laws of
Newtons First Law of Motion
 An object continues in a state of rest or in a state of
motion at a constant speed along a straight line, unless
compelled to change that state by a net force.

 Inertia is the natural tendency of an object to remain

at rest or in motion at a constant speed along a straight
line. The mass of an object is a quantitative measure of
 SI Unit of Inertia and Mass: kilogram (kg)
An Inertial Reference Frame
 An inertial reference frame is one in which Newtons
law of inertia is valid.

 The acceleration of an inertial reference frame is zero,

so it moves with a constant velocity. All of Newtons
laws of motion are valid in inertial reference frames,
and when we apply these laws, we will be assuming
such a reference frame. In particular, the earth itself is
a good approximation of an inertial reference frame.
Newtons Second Law of Motion
 When a net external force F acts on an object of
mass m, the acceleration a that results is directly
proportional to the net force and has a magnitude that
is inversely proportional to the mass. The direction of
the acceleration is the same as the direction of the net

 SI Unit of Force: kgm/s2 = newton (N)

 Two people are pushing a stalled car. The mass of the car is
1850 kg. One person applies a force of 275 N to the car,
while the other applies a force of 395 N. Both forces act in
the same direction. A third force of 560 N also acts on the
car, but in a direction opposite to that in which the people
are pushing. This force arises because of friction and the
extent to which the pavement opposes the motion of the
tires. Find the acceleration of the car.
Newtons Third Law of Motion
 Whenever one body exerts a force on a second body,
the second body exerts an oppositely directed force of
equal magnitude on the first body.

 The third law is often called the actionreaction law,

because it is sometimes quoted as follows: For every
action (force) there is an equal, but opposite, reaction.

Newtons Law of Universal
 Every particle in the universe exerts an attractive force on
every other particle. A particle is a piece of matter, small
enough in size to be regarded as a mathematical point. For
two particles that have masses m1 and m2 and are separated
by a distance r, the force that each exerts on the other is
directed along the line joining the particles and has a
magnitude given by

 G = universal gravitational constant

acts on each particle in Figure 4-10, assuming m1 = 12
kg (approximately the mass of a bicycle), m2 = 25 kg,
and r = 1.2 m?
Definition of Weight
 The weight of an object on or above the earth is the
gravitational force that the earth exerts on the object.
The weight always acts downward, toward the center of
the earth. On or above another astronomical body, the
weight is the gravitational force exerted on the object
by that body.
 SI Unit of Weight: newton (N)
 Using W for the magnitude of the weight,* m for
the mass of the object, and ME for the mass of the

 Where ME = mass of the earth, r = radius of the earth, G

= universal gravitational constant, and m = mass of an
object above the earth
 NOTE: W = mg
and g = GME/r2
Normal Force
 The normal force FN is one component of the force that
a surface exerts on an object with which it is in
contactnamely, the component that is perpendicular
to the surface.
Frictional Forces (Friction)
 When the object moves or attempts to move along the
surface, a component of the force that is parallel to the
surface is called the frictional force, or simply
The Tension Force
 Forces which are often applied by means of cables or
ropes that are used to pull an object.
 An object is in equilibrium when it has zero
 In other words, the forces acting on an object in
equilibrium must balance. Thus, in two dimensions,
the equilibrium condition is expressed by two

being rotated at 830 revolutions per minute (rpm) on a

at which the outer edge of the wheel is moving.
Centripetal Acceleration
 Magnitude: The centripetal acceleration of an object
moving with a speed v on a circular path of radius r has
a magnitude ac given by

 Direction: The centripetal acceleration vector always

points toward the center of the circle and continually
changes direction as the object moves.

1994 Olympics in
Lillehammer, Norway,

the net force required to keep an object of mass m,
moving at a speed v, on a circular path of radius r, and
it has a magnitude of

 Direction: The centripetal force always points toward

the center of the circle and continually changes
direction as the object moves.

The WorkEnergy Theorem and
Kinetic Energy
 The kinetic energy KE of an object with mass m and
speed v is given by

 When a net external force does work W on an object,

the kinetic energy of the object changes from its initial
value of KE0 to a final value of KEf, the difference
between the two values being equal to the work:
Gravitational Potential Energy
 The gravitational potential energy PE is the energy
that an object of mass m has by virtue of its position
relative to the surface of the earth. That position is
measured by the height h of the object relative to an
arbitrary zero level:

 SI Unit of Gravitational Potential Energy: joule (J)

Conservative Force
 Version 1 A force is conservative when the work it does
on a moving object is independent of the path
between the objects initial and final positions.

Version 2 A force is conservative when it does no net
work on an object moving around a closed path,
starting and finishing at the same point.
The Conservation of Mechanical
 The total mechanical
energy (E = KE + PE) of
an object remains
constant as the object
moves, provided that the
net work done by
nonconservative forces is
zero, Wnc = 0 J.
 A motorcyclist is trying to leap across the canyon by
driving horizontally off the cliff at a speed of 38.0 m /s.
Ignoring air resistance, find the speed with which the
cycle strikes the ground on the other side.

 The mass m of the rider and cycle can be eliminated algebraically from
this equation, since m appears as a factor in every term.
 Average power P is the average rate at which work W is
done, and it is obtained by dividing W by the time t
required to perform the work:

 SI Unit of Power: joule /s = Watt (W)

The Principle of Conservation of
 Energy can neither be created nor destroyed, but can
only be converted from one form to another.

 It means whenever energy is transformed from one

form to another, it is found that no energy is gained or
lost in the process; the total of all the energies before
the process is equal to the total of the energies after
the process.
Impulse and Momentum
 The impulse J of a force is the product of the average
force F and the time interval t during which the force

 SI Unit of Impulse: newton second (Ns)

 Impulse is a vector quantity and has the same direction
as the average force.
 The linear momentum p of an object is the product of
the objects mass m and velocity :

 SI Unit of Linear Momentum: kilogram

 Linear momentum is a vector quantity that points in
the same direction as the velocity.
ImpulseMomentum Theorem
 When a net force acts on an object, the impulse of this
force is equal to the change in momentum of the

vo = - 15 m/s and hits the roof of a car perpendicularly. The
mass of rain per second that strikes the car roof is
0.060 kg/s. Assuming that the rain comes to rest upon
striking the car (vf = 0 m/s), find the average force exerted
by the rain on the roof.
Conservation of Linear Momentum
 The total linear momentum of an isolated system
remains constant (is conserved). An isolated system is
one for which the vector sum of the average external
forces acting on the system is zero.

 Total final momentum = total initial momentum

Collisions in One Dimension
 Collisions are often classified according to whether the
total kinetic energy changes during the collision:
 Elastic collisionOne in which the total kinetic
energy of the system after the collision is equal to the
total kinetic energy before the collision.
 Inelastic collisionOne in which the total kinetic
energy of the system is not the same before and after the
collision; if the objects stick together after colliding, the
collision is said to be completely inelastic.

between two balls. One ball has a
mass of m1 = 0.250 kg and an initial
velocity of +5.00 m/s. The other has a
mass of m2 = 0.8 kg and is initially at
rest. No external forces act on the
balls. What are the velocities of the
balls after the collision?

Rotational Kinematics
Angular Displacement
 When a rigid body rotates about a fixed axis, the angular
displacement is the angle swept out by a line passing
through any point on the body and intersecting the axis of
rotation perpendicularly. By convention, the angular

if it is clockwise.
