Title: Force and Newton

1
Scenario
Three students, Fred, Tom and Bobby, are running
in a 100 meter dash. It took Tom 10 seconds to
run 50 meters, while Bobby ran it in 12 seconds
and Fred ran it in 15 seconds
2
Think --- Pair --- Share
• Which student is running slower?
• Which student will probably win the race?
• Could another student still win the race?
Explain.
• What are some other everyday examples of speed,
velocity and acceleration?

3
Activity
Balls trip to the Wall Balls trip from
the Wall
Distance (centimeters) Time (seconds) Speed Forward or Backward? Velocity (,-)

Distance (centimeters) Time (seconds) Speed Forward or Backward? Velocity (,-)

4
Physics the study of the relationship between
matter and energy
5
Motion
• A change in position in a certain amount of time
• Motion is relative. To know you are moving, you
must have a reference point
• Distance how far you traveled
• Units for distance??

6
Distance vs. Displacement
• The distance between the final position and
starting position is displacement
• (Ex hiking on a trail. The trail may be 1 mile
long but you may only end up 300 ft from where
you started)

7
Speed Equation
• Speed the distance traveled divided by the time
needed to travel that distance
• SI Unit is meters per second (m/s)
• Other Units?
• Speed distance
• time

8
Practice (Make sure you use the proper units)
• If it takes you 3 hours to travel 60 miles, what
• If you are running 3 miles in 30 minutes, what is

9
Constant speed vs. Average speed
• Constant speed an object covers equal distances
in equal amounts of time
• The speed of moving objects is not always
constant
• Average speed total distance
• total time

10
Graphing Speed
11
Draw the Following Graph
12
Velocity
• Velocity Speed in a given direction
• You can be going the same speed but two different
velocities
• Velocity distance direction
• time

D
T
V
13
Acceleration
• The change in velocity divided by the time the
change occurs
• A Velocity(final) Velocity(initial)
• Time
• Acceleration is speeding up, slowing down or
changing direction

Day Two Force!!!
16
Force
• A force is a push or pull exerted on an object
• Force is measured in Newtons (kg m/s2)
• In order for an object to speed
• up, slow down or change direction,
• a force has to act on that object
• Inertia is the objects tendency
• to resist changing its motion. The
• more inertia, the harder it is to start
• moving or slow it down

17
Total Force
• Forces almost always act in pairs with one force
acting on either side of the object
• The resulting force that exists between two is
the net force

18
Balanced Forces
• Balanced forces exist when the total force is
equal to zero.
• Balanced forces do not change an objects motion

19
Unbalanced Forces
• When a net force acts on an object, they are said
to be unbalanced.
• Unbalanced forces can cause an object to start
moving, stop moving, or change direction.

23
Friction and Air Resistance
• Friction is the force between two objects in
contact that resists motion between two touching
surfaces
• It is what eventually causes things to slow down
and stop
• Air Resistance is a form of friction between an
object and air molecules

24
Gravity
• Gravity is the pull that all matter exerts on
other matter
• Gravity is dependent on the mass of an object and
the distance between the two objects
• The greater the mass, the more gravitational pull
it will have (i.e. earth vs. moon)
• The greater the distance, the less gravitational
pull it will have
• Mass vs Weight weight is the amount of
gravitational pull on a person. So on the moon,
your mass would be the same but weight would be
different

25
Free Fall and Terminal Velocity
• When the only force acting on an object is
gravity, the object is said to be in free fall
• On earth, this is 9.8 m/s2 - Gravity constant
• In the absence of air resistance, all objects on
Earth accelerate at the same rate, regardless of
their mass.
• An object reaches its terminal velocity when the
force of gravity is balanced by the force of air
resistance

Objective What are you learning today?
• Students will be able to Practice problems
• Worksheet on Force and Motion
• Brainstorm ideas for project

Sir Isaac Newton (4 January 1643 31 March
1727)was an English physicist, mathematician,
astronomer, natural philosopher, alchemist, and
theologian, and is considered by many scholars
and members of the general public to be one of
the more influential people in human history. His
Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica
(Latin for "Mathematical Principles Of Natural
Philosophy" usually called the Principia),
published in 1687, is probably the most important
scientific book ever written. It lays the
groundwork for most of classical mechanics. In
this work, Newton described universal gravitation
and the three laws of motion, which dominated the
scientific view of the physical universe for the
next three centuries.
Warm Up
Things to do

27
Newtons Laws
28
Newtons First Law of Motion
• An object at rest will remain at rest and an
object in motion will maintain its velocity
unless it experiences an unbalanced force.
• This is often times called the law of Inertia

29
Newtons Second Law of Motion
• The unbalanced force acting on an object equals
the objects mass times its acceleration
• Fma
• Force is measured in Newtons (kg m/s2)

30
Newtons Third Law
• For every action force, there is an equal and
opposite reaction force

31
• Draw or explain an example of each of Newtons 3
Laws.

box of popcorn
• 3rd - When birds fly, they push their wings down
in order to go up
