Force and Motion
SECTION4.1
MAIN IDEA A force is a push or a pull.
Essential Questions
• What is a force?
• What is the relationship between force and
acceleration?
• How does motion change when the net force is
zero?

5
Force and Motion
SECTION4.1
• Review Vocabulary
• Acceleration the rate at which the velocity of an
object changes.
• New Vocabulary
• Force
• System
• Free-body diagram
• Newtons second law
• Newtons first law
• Inertia
• Equilibrium

6
Force and Motion
SECTION4.1
Force
• Consider a textbook resting on a table. To cause
it to move, you could either push or pull on it.
• A force is defined as a push or pull exerted on
an object.

7
Force and Motion
SECTION4.1
Force (cont.)
• If you push harder on an object, you have a
greater effect on its motion.
• The direction in which force is exerted also
matters. If you push the book to the right, the
book moves to the right.
• The symbol F is a vector and represents the size
and direction of a force, while F represents only
the magnitude.

8
Force and Motion
SECTION4.1
Force (cont.)
• Forces can cause objects to speed up, slow down,
or change direction as they move.
• Based on the definitions of velocity and
acceleration, a force exerted on an object causes
that objects velocity to change that is, a
force causes an acceleration.
• All accelerations are the result of an unbalanced
force acting on an object.

9
Force and Motion
SECTION4.1
Force (cont.)
• When considering how a force affects motion, it
is important to identify the object of interest.
This object is called the system.
• Everything around the object that exerts forces
on it is called the external world.

10
Force and Motion
SECTION4.1
Force (cont.)
• Think about the different ways in which you could
move a textbook.
• You could touch it directly and push or pull it,
or you could tie a string around it and pull on
the string. These are examples of contact forces.

11
Force and Motion
SECTION4.1
Force (cont.)
• A contact force exists when an object from the
external world touches a system and thereby
exerts a force on it.

12
Force and Motion
SECTION4.1
Force (cont.)
• There are other ways in which the motion of the
textbook can change.
• If you drop a book, the gravitational force of
Earth causes the book to accelerate, whether or
not Earth is actually touching it. This is an
example of a field force.
• Field forces are exerted without contact.

13
Force and Motion
SECTION4.1
Force (cont.)
• Forces result from interactions thus, each force
has a specific and identifiable cause called the
agent.
• Without both an agent and a system, a force does
not exist.
• A physical model which represents the forces
acting on a system, is called a free-body diagram.

15
Force and Motion
SECTION4.1
Combining Forces
• When the force vectors are in the same direction,
they can be replaced by a vector with a length
equal to their combined length.
• If the forces are in opposite directions, the
resulting vector is the length of the difference
between the two vectors, in the direction of the
greater force.
• Vector sum of all the forces on an object is net
force.

16
Force and Motion
SECTION4.1
Acceleration and Force
• To explore how forces affect an objects motion,
consider the situation explored in the figure, in
which, a horizontal force is exerted on an
object.

17
Force and Motion
SECTION4.1
Acceleration and Force (cont.)
• Notice, in order to reduce complications
resulting from the object rubbing against the
surface, the investigation was performed on a
smooth, well-polished table and the cart has
wheels.

18
Force and Motion
SECTION4.1
Acceleration and Force (cont.)
• To exert a constant force, a spring scale was
used to pull the cart.
• The velocity of the cart was measured for a
period of time.
• Using the data, a velocity-time graph was
constructed.

19
Force and Motion
SECTION4.1
Acceleration and Force (cont.)
• The data indicates for a constant force there is
a constant acceleration on an object.
• Thus, indicating the relationship between force
and acceleration is linear and allowing the
application of the equation for a straight line
• The y-intercept is 0, so the linear equation
simplifies to ykx. The y-variable is
acceleration and x-variable is force.

20
Force and Motion
SECTION4.1
Acceleration and Force (cont.)
• What is the physical meaning of the slope of the
acceleration-force graph?
• To determine this, increase the number of carts

21
Force and Motion
SECTION4.1
Acceleration and Force (cont.)
• A plot of the force versus acceleration for one,
two, and three carts indicates that if the same
force is applied in each situation, the
acceleration of two carts is the acceleration
of one cart and the acceleration of three carts
is the acceleration of one cart.

22
Force and Motion
SECTION4.1
Acceleration and Force (cont.)
• This means that as the number of carts is
increased, a greater force is needed to produce
the same acceleration.
• The slopes of the lines in the graph depend upon
the number of carts that is, the slope depends
on the total mass of the carts.

23
Force and Motion
SECTION4.1
Acceleration and Force (cont.)
24
Force and Motion
SECTION4.1
Acceleration and Force (cont.)
• The formula, F ma, tells you that if you double
the force, you will double the objects
acceleration.
• If you apply the same force to several different
objects, the one with the most mass will have the
smallest acceleration and the one with the least
mass will have the greatest acceleration.
• One unit of force causes a 1-kg mass to
accelerate at 1 m/s2, so one force unit has the
dimensions 1 kgm/s2 or one newton and is
represented by N.

25
Force and Motion
SECTION4.1
Newtons Second Law
• The observation that acceleration of an object is
proportional to the net force exerted on it and
inversely proportional to its mass is Newtons
second law, which can be represented in the
following equation.
• Newtons second law states that the acceleration
of an object is equal to the sum of the forces
(the net force) acting on the object, divided by
the mass of the object.

26
Force and Motion
SECTION4.1
Newtons Second Law (cont.)
• One of the most important steps in correctly
applying Newtons second law is determining the
net force acting on the object.
• Draw a free-body diagram showing the direction
and relative strength of each force acting on the
system.
• Then add the force vectors to find the net force.

27
Force and Motion
SECTION4.1
Newtons Second Law (cont.)
• Next, use Newtons second law to calculate the
acceleration.
• Finally, if necessary, use what you know about
accelerated motion to find the velocity or
position of the object.

Anudja is holding a stuffed dog with a mass of
0.30 kg, when Sarah decides that she wants it and
tries to pull it away from Anudja. If Sarah pulls
horizontally on the dog with a force of 10.0 N
and Anudja pulls with a horizontal force of 11.0

• Are the units correct?
• m/s2 is the correct unit for acceleration.
• Does the sign make sense?
• The acceleration is in the positive direction
because Anudja is pulling in the positive
direction with a greater force than Sarah is
pulling in the negative direction.

40
Force and Motion
SECTION4.1
Newtons First Law
• What is the motion of an object with no net force
acting on it?
• Newtons second law states says that if net force
is zero, then acceleration equal zero.
• If acceleration is zero, then velocity does not
change.
• A stationary object with no net force acting on
it will stay at rest.

41
Force and Motion
SECTION4.1
Newtons First Law (cont.)
• What about a moving object like a rolling ball?
How long will it roll?
• Depends on the surface thick carpet exerts more
force than a smooth hard surface like a bowling
alley.
• So the ball will stop rolling sooner on the
carpet than the bowling alley.

42
Force and Motion
SECTION4.1
Newtons First Law (cont.)
• Galileo did many experiments, and he concluded
that in the ideal case of zero resistance,
horizontal motion would never stop.
• Galileo was the first to recognize that the
general principles of motion could be found by
extrapolating experimental results to the ideal
case, in which there is no resistance to slow
down an objects motion.

43
Force and Motion
SECTION4.1
Newtons First Law (cont.)
• In the absence of a net force, the motion (or
lack of motion) of both the moving object and the
stationary object continues as it was. Newton
recognized this and generalized Galileos results
in a single statement.
• This statement, an object that is at rest will
remain at rest, and an object that is moving will
continue to move in a straight line with constant
speed, if and only if the net force acting on
that object is zero, is called Newtons first
law.

44
Force and Motion
SECTION4.1
Newtons First Law (cont.)
• Newtons first law is sometimes called the law of
inertia.
• Inertia is the tendency of an object to resist
change.
• If an object is at rest, it tends to remain at
rest.
• If it is moving at a constant velocity, it tends
to continue moving at that velocity.
• Forces are results of interactions between two
objects they are not properties of single
objects, so inertia cannot be a force.

45
Force and Motion
SECTION4.1
Newtons First Law (cont.)
• If the net force on an object is zero, then the
object is in equilibrium.
• An object is in equilibrium if its velocity is
not changing.
• Newtons first law identifies a net force as
something that disturbs the state of equilibrium.
• Thus, if there is no net force acting on the
object, then the object does not experience a
change in speed or direction and is in
equilibrium.

46
Force and Motion
SECTION4.1
Newtons First Law (cont.)
• Some of the common types of forces are displayed
on the right.
• When analyzing forces and motion, it is important
to keep in mind that the world is dominated by
resistance. Newtons ideal, resistance-free world
is not easy to visualize.

Weight and Drag Force
SECTION4.2
MAIN IDEA Newtons second law can be used to
explain the motion of falling objects.
Essential Questions
• How are the weight and the mass of an object
related?
• How do actual weight and apparent weight differ?
• What effect does air have on falling objects?

55
Weight and Drag Force
SECTION4.2
• Review Vocabulary
• viscosity a fluids resistance to flowing.
• New Vocabulary
• Weight
• Gravitational pull
• Apparent weight
• Weightlessness
• Drag force
• Terminal velocity

56
Weight and Drag Force
SECTION4.2
Weight
• Weight is the gravitational force experienced by
an object.
• This gravitational force is a field force whose
magnitude is directly proportional to the mass of
the object experiencing the force
• Fg mg, where m is the mass of the object
and g is the gravitational field.
• Because weight is a force, the proper unit used
to measure weight is the newton.

57
Weight and Drag Force
SECTION4.2
Weight (cont.)
• Gravitational field is a vector quantity that
relates the mass of an object to the
gravitational force it experiences at a given
location.
• Near Earths surface, g is 9.8N/kg toward Earths
center.
• When you step on a scale, the scale exerts an
upward force on you equal in magnitude to the
gravitational force pulling down on you.
• The scale is calibrated to convert the stretch of
the springs, the upward force necessary to give a
net force of zero, to weight .

59
Weight and Drag Force
SECTION4.2
Drag Force
• When an object moves through any fluid, such as
air or water, the fluid exerts a drag force on
the moving object in the direction opposite to
its motion.
• A drag force is the force exerted by a fluid on
the object moving through the fluid.
• This force is dependent on the motion of the
object, the properties of the object, and the
properties of the fluid (viscosity and
temperature) that the object is moving through.

60
Weight and Drag Force
SECTION4.2
Drag Force (cont.)
• As a dropped tennis balls velocity increases, so
does the drag force. The constant velocity that
is reached when the drag force equals the force
of gravity is called the terminal velocity.

SECTION4.2
• Your mass is 100 kg, and you are standing on a
bathroom scale in an elevator. What is the scale
reading when the elevator is falling freely?

65
Weight and Drag Force
SECTION4.2
Reason Since the elevator is falling freely with
acceleration g, the contact force between the
elevator and you is zero. As scale reading
displays the contact force, it would be zero.
66
Weight and Drag Force
SECTION4.2
• In which of the following cases will your
apparent weight be greater than your real weight?

A. The elevator is at rest. B. The elevator is
accelerating upward. C. The elevator is
accelerating downward. D. Apparent weight is
never greater than real weight.
67
Weight and Drag Force
SECTION4.2
Reason When the elevator is moving upward, your
apparent weight
Fapparent ma Fg (where m is your mass and
a is the acceleration of the elevator). So your
apparent weight becomes more than your real
weight.

SECTION4.3
Interaction Pairs
• When you exert a force on your friend to push him
forward, he exerts an equal and opposite force on
you, which causes you to move backward.
• The forces FA on B and FB on A are an interaction
pair.
• An interaction pair is two forces that are in
opposite directions and have equal magnitude.

72
Newtons Third Law
SECTION4.3
Interaction Pairs (cont.)
• An interaction pair is also called an
action-reaction pair of forces.
• This might suggest that one causes the other
however, this is not true.
• For example, the force of you pushing your friend
doesnt cause your friend to exert a force on
you.
• The two forces either exist together or not at
all.
• They both result from the contact between the two
of you.

73

Force and Motion
SECTION4.1
Study Guide
• A force is a push or a pull. Forces have both
direction and magnitude. A force might be either
a contact force or a field force.
• Newtons second law states that the acceleration
of a system equals the net force acting on it
divided by its mass.

100
Force and Motion
SECTION4.1
Study Guide
• Newtons first law states that an object that is
at rest will remains at rest and an object that
is moving will continue to move in a straight
line with constant speed, if and only if the net
force acting on that object is zero. An object
with zero net force acting on it is in
equilibrium.

101
Weight and Drag Force
SECTION4.2
Study Guide
• The objects weight (Fg) depends on the objects
mass and the gravitational field at the objects
location.
• An objects apparent weight is the magnitude of
the support force exerted on it. An object with
no apparent weight experiences weightlessness.

102
Weight and Drag Force
SECTION4.2
Study Guide
• A falling object reaches a constant velocity when
the drag force is equal to the objects weight.
The constant velocity is called the terminal
velocity. The drag force on an object is
determined by the objects weight, size and shape
as well as the fluid through which it moves.

103
Newtons Third Law
SECTION4.3
Study Guide
• Newtons third law states that the two forces
that make up an interaction pair of forces are
equal in magnitude, but opposite in direction and
act on different objects. In an interaction
pair, FA on B does not cause FB on A. The two
forces either exist together or not at all.

104
Newtons Third Law
SECTION4.3

• Newtons second law can be rearranged to the form
F ma, which you
• Assume that the table that you and your friend
were pushing was 15.0 kg and the two of you each
pushed with a force of 50.0 N in the same
direction.
• To find out what the acceleration of the table
would be, calculate the net force, 50.0 N 50.0
N 100.0 N, and apply Newtons second law by
dividing the net force of 100.0 N by the mass of
the table, 15.0 kg, to get an acceleration of
6.67 m/s2.

• Jack is boating in a river applying a contact
force of 30 N, in a direction opposite to the
flow of water. At the same time, the water is
exerting a force of 30 N on the boat. In which
direction will the boat move?

A. The boat will move in the direction of the
flow of water. B. The boat will not move at
all. C. The boat will move back and forth within
a particular distance. D. The boat will move in
the direction opposite to the flow of water.

• What happens when the drag force is equal to the
force of gravity?

A. The object comes to rest. B. The object
moves with constant acceleration. C. The object
moves with constant velocity. D. The velocity of

Reason When drag force equals the force due to
gravity, the net force acting on the object is
zero. As a result of this, the object moves with
constant velocity, which is called terminal
velocity.

Test-Taking Tip

If possible, find out how your standardized test
will be scored. In order to do your best, you
need to know if there is a penalty for guessing,
and if so, what the penalty is. If there is no
random-guessing penalty at all, you should always
question.
