### Today :

Today Discuss Quiz 1 Recap of Wednesday’s Lecture Lecture Discuss Times Science Article Galilean relativity. Newton puts it together: Generally regarded as the greatest scientific achievement of all time Newton’s Laws Position, Velocity, Acceleration, Momentum as Vectors Key concepts: Space, Time, Mass, Force Next Time Read Hobson, Ch. 5

### Toward a Science of Mechanics:

Toward a Science of Mechanics Galileo’s Profound Contributions to Physics Include: Principle of inertia: An object moving on level surface (horizontally) will continue to move in the same direction at constant speed unless it is disturbed. (This becomes even more general in the hands of Newton.) Principle of Superposition: If a body is subjected to two separate influences, each producing a characteristic type of motion, it responds to each without modifying its response to the other.

### How Fast Are You Going?:

How Fast Are You Going? In your chair, you might say you are at rest. Clarification: At rest with respect to the surface of Earth. But Earth is spinning It takes 24 hours to travel ~25,000 miles (Earth’s circumference) so v=1000 mph. But Earth is going around the sun: Circumference: D = 2pR = 2p(93x106 miles) Period: T = 1 year = 365 days = 8760 hours V= D/T = 66,700 mph But the sun is moving about the Milky Way V = 540,000 mph How fast are you going?? Bad question, must ask: How fast are you going with respect to ….

### Galileo’s Relativity:

Galileo’s Relativity Reasoning from principle of Superposition: All Motion is Relative No experiment inside a steadily moving ship will show that is is moving. Only by looking outside can one detect motion -- i.e., relative motion. Therefore there’s no reason to expect to sense that the Earth is moving. There is no reason to say the earth is at rest! No reason to put the earth at the center of the universe! Profound consequences upon the world view --- for which Galileo was persecuted

### Development of Classical Physics:

Development of Classical Physics Newton puts it together: Generally regarded as the greatest scientific achievement of all time One of the most influential developments of all time Invented calculus along the way!

### Isaac Newton (1642 - 1727):

Isaac Newton (1642 - 1727) Born the year Galileo died at Woolsthorpe, near Grantham in Lincolnshire, into a poor farming family. Terrible farmer, sent to Cambridge University in 1661 to become a preacher. Instead, he studied mathematics. Forced to leave Cambridge from 1665 to 1667 because of the great plague. Newton called this period the “Height of his Creative Power”. Greatest works were accomplished while he was 24 - 26 years old! One of the most influential people who ever lived Newton’s Paradigm - now called “classical physics” - dominated Western thought for more than two centuries

### “In the beginning of the year 1665, I found the method of approximating series and the Rule for reducing any dignity of any Binomial into such a series. The same year in … November had the direct method of Fluxions, and in January had the Theory of Colours, and in May following I had entrance into the inverse method of Fluxions. And the same year I began to think of the orb of the Moon … from Kepler’s Rule of the periodical times of the Planets … I deduced the forces which keep the Planets in their orbs must be reciprocally as the squares of their distances from the centres about which they revolve … All this was in the two plague years of 1665 and 1666, for in those days I was in the prime of my age for invention, and minded Mathematics and Philosophy more than any time since.”:

### Isaac Newton (1642 - 1727) continued:

Isaac Newton (1642 - 1727) continued Suffered a mental breakdown in 1675. In 1679 (responding to a letter from Hooke) suggested that particles, when released, would spiral toward the center of the earth. Hooke wrote back claiming the path would be an ellipse. Hating to be publicly contradicted, Newton began to work out the mathematics of orbits. Urged by Halley to publish his calculations and results, Newton released Principia in 1687. This became one of the most important and influential works on physics of all times

### Calculus – Newton vs. Leibnitz:

Calculus – Newton vs. Leibnitz First known steps – ancient Greece Zeno’s paradox; Archimedes Newton wrote a tract (circulated among mathematicians) in 1666 First clear statement of the fundamental theorem of calculus Gottfried Wilhelm Leibnitz (1646 - 1716) From a poor family Child Prodigy Famous German Mathematician and Philsopher Invented Calculus 1674-5; published 1684 – Controversial whether he had seen Newton’s work

### Newton’s Three Laws:

Newton’s Three Laws Inertia: “Every body continues in its state of rest, or of uniform motion in a right line, unless it is compelled to change that state by a force impressed on it.” Force, Mass, Acceleration (F=ma): “The change in motion [rate of change of momentum] is proportional to the motive force impressed; and is made in the direction of the right line in which that force is impressed.” “Action = Reaction”: “To every action [change of momentum] there is always opposed an equal reaction; or, the mutual actions of two bodies are always equal, and directed to contrary parts.”

### Newton’s First Law:

Newton’s First Law “Every body continues in its state of rest, or of uniform motion in a right line, unless it is compelled to change that state by a force impressed on it.” Same as Galileo’s law of inertia. If a body moves with constant velocity in a straight line, then there is NO net Force acting on the body. If the body is moving in any other way (i.e. accelerating), then there MUST be a Force acting on the body. Galilean Relativity revisited: “Rest” and “Uniform Motion” really are the same! No net force on the object As Galileo argued, no experiment in a steadily moving ship will show that is is moving. Only by looking outside can you detect relative motion.

First Law Demo

### First Law Demo:

First Law Demo In what direction should you throw a ball if you want it to return to you? Does it matter if you are “moving” or not? v v v What does the trajectory look like if the thrower is “moving”? thrower at rest thrower moves horizontally with speed v The ball returns to the thrower. Both move so ball is always above the thrower. The laws of physics are the same whether or not the thrower is moving relative to the observer!

### Exercise:

Exercise Suppose you are on an airplane travelling at constant velocity with a speed of 500 miles per hour (roughly 200 m/s) If you throw a ball straight up, does it return to you? How does it appear to you? How does the path of the ball look to an observer on the ground? Can you think of any experiment done inside the airplane that would detect the motion of the airplane at constant velocity?

### Exercise - Solution:

Exercise - Solution To person on airplane Time = 1 sec 1.25 m 200 m 1.25 m To person on ground - Time =1 sec

What about pouring coffee? To person on airplane Time = 1/2 sec To person on ground Time =1/2 sec (We exaggerate and assume the coffee is poured 1.25 meters above the cup!)

### Newton’s Second Law:

Newton’s Second Law “The change in motion [rate of change of momentum] is proportional to the motive force impressed; and is made in the direction of the right line in which that force is impressed. Equation: Force = mass x acceleration In terms of momentum: Thus Force = rate of change of momentum Quantitative Concepts: Force and Mass

### Vectors: Magnitude and Direction:

Vectors: Magnitude and Direction Nice Web site with java program that illustrates adding vectors http://home.a-city.de/walter.fendt/physengl/physengl.htm Example:

### Vectors: Velocity, Acceleration, Momentum:

Vectors: Velocity, Acceleration, Momentum Momentum was known to Galileo & Descartes: Measure of “quantity of motion” Momentum Vector p = m v Note: m = mass is a scalar (a value, NOT a vector) Momentum has same direction as velocity Magnitude: p = m v (More on vectors later)

### Which has more momentum?:

Which has more momentum? A bullet, mass = 100 grams, speed = 1000m/s A truck, mass=1000kg, speed = 10m/s 100 grams = 0.1kg p=mv = 0.1 kg x 1000m/s = 100 kg-m/s p=mv = 1000 kg x 10m/s = 10,000 kg-m/s

### Mass:

Mass What is this thing called Mass? Mass is a property of an object. In Newton’s theory it is always constant for a given object. Mass is not weight, not volume, . . . . Mass is a quantitative measure of how hard it is to accelerate the object. Mass of objects can be calibrated by measuring their acceleration by the same force Tested experimentally -- found to be true that different measurements with different forces give consistent values of the mass

### Force:

Force What is a force? Force is the tendency to cause acceleration. Operationally defined by measuring accelerations. Is this just a circular definition? No! Forces can be related to physical systems. Compressed springs, gravitational forces, …. This is the basis for the predictive power of Newton’s equations. More later on Forces This is the new idea not present in Galileo’s work

### Force is a Vector:

Force is a Vector The “Net Force” or “Total Force” on an object is the vector sum of all the forces on it due to other objects This what goes in Newton’s Equation Force = mass x acceleration Net Force F is the vector sum of the three applied forces

Second Law Demo

### Newton’s Third Law:

Newton’s Third Law “To every action [change of momentum] there is always opposed an equal reaction; or, the mutual actions of two bodies are always equal, and directed to contrary parts.” Consider collision of m1 with m2: Newton’s Second Law says that the force acting on m2 (= F12) during a time t results in a change in the momentum of m2 (=p2) equal to the force times the time ( p2 = F12 t ). Similarly the change in momentum of m1 is given by: p1 = F21 t Newton’s Third Law says that the force m1 exerts on m2 (= F12) must be equal in magnitude, but in the opposite direction of the force m2 exerts on m1 (= F21), i.e., F12 = -F21 Therefore, the change in momentum of m1 (= p1) is equal in magnitude, but in the opposite direction of the change in momentum of m2 (= p2). THE TOTAL MOMENTUM DOES NOT CHANGE!

### Mass vs. Weight:

Mass vs. Weight Mass is an intrinsic property of an object. A rock has same mass whether it is on the moon or on Earth Weight is the force exerted on an object by gravity. This is different depending upon the strength of the gravitational force. On the surface of Earth, gravitational force is constant so we can easily convert from mass to weight. 1 pound = 1 slug - ft/s2 1 Newton = 1 kg - m/s2 9.8 Newtons = 2.2 pounds So, we say it’s 2.2 pounds per kilogram. Does this work on Mt. Everest? 1 kg x 9.8m/s2 = 9.8 Newtons

### Demonstration: Newton’s Third Law: Action/Reaction:

Demonstration: Newton’s Third Law: Action/Reaction Examples of equal and opposite forces Does not matter which body “caused” the force Person pushing on a table How does a rocket accelerate? Rocket Cart! ---- DEMONSTRATION! Note that the total momentum does not change (We will come back to this as an example of a “conservation law” -- momentum is “conserved”)

### Exercise: Action/Reaction:

Exercise: Action/Reaction Suppose a tennis ball (m= 0.1 kg) moving at a velocity v = 40 m/sec collides head-on with a truck (M = 500 kg) which is moving with velocity V = 10 m/sec. During the collision, the tennis ball exerts a force on the truck which is smaller than the force which the truck exerts on the tennis ball. TRUE or FALSE ? The tennis ball will suffer a larger acceleration during the collision than will the truck. TRUE or FALSE ? Suppose the tennis ball bounces away from the truck after the collision. How fast is the truck moving after the collision? < 10 m/sec = 10 m/sec > 10 m/sec ?

### Exercise: Action/Reaction solution:

Exercise: Action/Reaction solution Suppose a tennis ball (m= 0.1 kg) moving at a velocity v = 40 m/sec collides head-on with a truck (M = 500 kg) which is moving with velocity V = 10 m/sec. During the collision, the tennis ball exerts a force on the truck which is smaller than the force which the truck exerts on the tennis ball. TRUE or FALSE ? Equal and opposite forces! The tennis ball will suffer a larger acceleration during the collision than will the truck. TRUE or FALSE ? Acceleration = Force / mass Suppose the tennis ball bounces away from the truck after the collision. How fast is the truck moving after the collision? < 10 m/sec = 10 m/sec > 10 m/sec ? To conserve total momentum, the truck’s speed must decrease since the tennis ball moves in the opposite direction after the collision.

### How Does a Car Move?:

How Does a Car Move? Each arrow represents a force. Your car is accelerating forward, meaning there is a net force in that direction. Identical concept for walking (or running). a

### Summary – to this point:

Summary – to this point Definitions: displacement, velocity, acceleration, momentum are vectors that describe motion Newton’s three laws: 1. A body moves with constant velocity unless acted upon by a force -- equivalent to principle of inertia 2. F=ma 3. Equal and opposite forces -- action/reaction (equivalent to conservation of momentum – more later) Concept of Force, Mass Mass is a scalar measure of “inertia” or resistance to acceleration” Force is a vector - tends to cause acceleration The force in Newton’s equation is the “Net Force” -- the vector sum of all forces on a body Demonstrations of Laws

### Curved Motion & Circular Motion:

Curved Motion & Circular Motion Curved motion is accelerated motion! True even when the speed is constant!!

### Force is required to change the Magnitude or Direction of Velocity:

Force is required to change the Magnitude or Direction of Velocity From First law motion continues in straight line at constant velocity unless there is a force Change of speed in the same direction requires a force in that direction Car speeding up - positive acceleration Car slowing down - braking - negative acceleration Demonstration last time of string applying force to a cart on wheels Change of direction of motion requires a force --- even with no change in speed Force Ball Force Motion Motion

### Force is required to change the Direction of Velocity:

Force is required to change the Direction of Velocity Example: Circular Motion Accelerates even though speed does not change! Object moves in circle because of force from string If string were suddenly cut, ball would move in straight line at constant velocity v v

### Acceleration & Circular Motion:

Acceleration & Circular Motion Acceleration is the change in velocity per unit time. Velocity is a vector (magnitude & direction). v2 v1 R = -------- v2 - v1 t The direction of the acceleration is centripetal, i.e. toward the center of the circle.  | v1 | = | v2 | = v Toward Center

### Acceleration & Circular Motion:

Acceleration & Circular Motion We now know the direction of the acceleration (toward the center). How big is it? v2 v1 R v1 v2 v   For small angles measured in radians: v = v | v1 | = | v2 | = v To find the acceleration, we need to know how  is related to t : For one revolution, the angular displacement is:  = 2(radians) The time required for one revolution (period) is: t = 2R / v Therefore, Combining these equations: t = v / R

### Circular Motion:

Circular Motion Centripetal Force must be provided by something! F = m v2 / R Force is toward the center, perpendicular to direction of motion How does an automobile go around a curve? How does a rocket is space change direction? What makes the moon circle the earth?

### Newton’s theory of gravity:

Newton’s theory of gravity Builds upon the idea that ALL curved motion is due to some FORCE Planets? All objects in the universe?

### Kepler’s Third Law Provides a Key:

Kepler’s Third Law Provides a Key Kepler’s 3rd Law: P2 = k R3 But, period = P = 2 R / v  42 R2 / v2 = k R3 Therefore, v2 = 42 / k R Substituting this form for v2 into Newton’s 2nd Law: Uniform Circular Motion: a = v2 / R Newton’s 2nd Law: F = ma = mv2 / R F = ----- ----- 42 k m R2 This is the force that the Sun must exert on a planet of mass m , orbital radius R, in order that the planet obey Kepler’s Laws in the circular motion approximation.

### Toward a Universal Theory of Gravitation :

Toward a Universal Theory of Gravitation We have shown that Kepler’s Laws follow from Newton’s 2nd Law if the force F on a planet is: F = ----- ----- 42 k m R2 Question: What more do we have to do to turn this into a “Universal” Law of Gravitation? Consider Newton’s 3rd Law: If this is the force on the planet due to the Sun, then the planet must also exert an equal force on the Sun, but in the opposite direction. There is no mention of the Sun in this equation, but there must be if this force describes the force on the Sun due to the planet. Therefore, Kepler’s constant k is not really a universal constant! It must depend on the mass of the Sun!!

### Universal Law of Gravitation :

Universal Law of Gravitation The only form of the law that is symmetric in the two masses (mass of sun and mass of planet) is: This form of the law is universal. Newton’s law of gravity: There is an attractive force obeying the above law between every pair of masses in the universe. The constant G is universal and applies to all masses in the universe. F = G ------- Mm R2 Where M and m are the masses of any two bodies, R is the distance between them and G is a universal constant!

### Newton Has Said More than Kepler!:

Newton Has Said More than Kepler! Kepler’s Laws describe the motion of a planet about the Sun. Newton uses same laws that apply to all motion! Newton’s framework (forces & masses) allows him to generalize from the Sun-planet system to all bodies in the universe! This is “universal” gravitation! Newton’s Third Law implies that each body exerts equal and opposite forces on the other. Depends upon both masses. Describes the moon orbiting the earth The moons of Jupiter, and much more! Totally different from Kepler’s approach.

### Exercise: Kepler’s Laws:

Exercise: Kepler’s Laws Suppose you know that the radius of Saturn’s orbit is about 9 AU. (the radius of the Earth’s orbit = 1AU). Can you predict the average speed of Saturn in its orbit in terms of the average speed of the Earth in its orbit? If you can, do it; if you can’t, what other information would you need? Can you predict the acceleration of Saturn in its orbit in terms of the acceleration of the Earth in its orbit? If you can, do it; if you can’t, what other information would you need? Can you predict the force that the Sun exerts on Saturn in terms of the force that the Sun exerts on the Earth? If you can, do it; if you can’t, what other information would you need?

### The Apple and the Moon:

The Apple and the Moon Is Newton’s Gravitation Force Law really “universal”? Does the same force law describe apples falling to the Earth and the Moon’s orbit about the Earth? Can we predict the acceleration due to gravity on the surface of the Earth from the Period & Radius of the Moon’s orbit? Acceleration of the moon: amoon = v2 / R = 42R / P2 If due to gravitation, then also: amoon = F / mmoon = GMearth / R2 Newton showed that the total force the Earth exerts on an object near its surface can be calculated by taking all the mass of the Earth to be concentrated at its center. Therefore, the acceleration due to gravity at the surface of the earth is: g = GMearth / Rearth2 Combining these equations we get a prediction for the acceleration due to gravity at the Earth’s surface: gpred = amoon --------- R2 Rearth2 Putting in numbers: gpred = 9.76 m/sec2 Observed: g = 9.78 m/sec2 IT WORKS !!

### Effects of gravity:

Effects of gravity Seen everywhere around us Falling objects Planets, Moons orbiting larger bodies Double star systems rotating around each other Galaxies - millions of stars clustered due to gravitational forces See Feyman, Chapter 5

### Gravity is a VERY Tiny force:

Gravity is a VERY Tiny force Force between two objects each 1 Kg at a distance of 1 meter is F = G M1 M2 /R2 = 6.67 x 10 -11 N 1 N is about the weight of one apple on the earth The reason the effects of gravity are so large is that the masses of the earth, sun, stars, …. are so large -- and gravity extends so far in space

Additional Comments Newton’s Theory of gravitation contains one deeply unsatisfying aspect Newton recognized the problem The law f = G M m /r2 means “action at a distance” Instantaneous force due on one object due to another object no matter how far they are away from one another What should a scientist do?

### Summary:

Summary Circular Motion Centripetal (toward center) accel. a = v2/r Centripetal force Example: Ball on a string moving in a circle Kepler’s Laws explained by gravitational force in Newton’s laws Universal law of gravitation: f = G M m /r2 The falling Apple and the Moon: each accelerates toward the earth obeying the same law! Motion on Earth and in the heavens obeying the same simple laws! Enormous impact upon Western Thought Examples of the huge effects of the tiny force of gravity

### Next Time:

Next Time More examples of Newton’s laws Discussion of Newton and mankind’s worldview Religion Predestination vs. Free will Conservation Laws Conservation of momentum Conservation of energy

### Extra - Position, Velocity, Acceleration are Vectors:

Extra - Position, Velocity, Acceleration are Vectors A vector describes both magnitude and direction. Position (and change of position) has magnitude (distance) and direction Velocity is change of position vector per unit time. Acceleration is change of velocity vector per unit time.

### Extra - Addition of Vectors:

Extra - Addition of Vectors Since a vector describes both magnitude and direction, adding vectors must take into account the direction Add vectors “head to tail” to get resultant vector Example: A = B + C Subtraction is just adding the negative C = A - B O C B A O C B A O C - B A
