Ticker timer used to study movement in a short period of time 50 Hz used to determine: o time o displacement o average velocity o acceleration o type of movement

Explanation Consistent distance = uniform velocity

Movement

Short distance = low velocity Long distance = high velocity Increasing distance = increasing velocity / acceleration Decreasing distance = decreasing velocity / deceleration

2.3

Inertia

Dynamics the study of movement caused by force Inertia natural characteristics of an object to oppose any attempted change on its original state, whether at rest or in motion tendency of an object to remain at rest, or to keep moving at constant speed in a straight line Newton's First Law of Motion (Law of Inertia) Every object in a state of uniform motion tends to remain in that state of motion unless an external force is applied to it.

2.4

Momentum

Momentum = mass × velocity p = mv

where p = momentum [kg m s-1] m = mass [kg] v = velocity [m s-1]

Principle of conservation of momentum In any collision or interaction between two or more objects in an isolated system, the total momentum before collision is equal to the total momentum after collision.

m1u1 + m2u2 = m1v1 + m2v2 Three situations: 1) Elastic collision: When both objects move separately after collision.

Note: In an elastic collision, the kinetic energy is conserved.

m1u1 + m2u2 = m1v1 + m2v2 2) Inelastic collision: When both objects move together after collision. m1u1 + m2u2 = (m1 + m2)v 3) Explosion: When both objects are stationary before the explosion. 0 = m1v1 + m2v2

2.5

Force

Force changes the size, shape, state of rest, velocity and/or direction of an object. Force is a vector quantity. Newton's Second Law of Motion The acceleration of a body, a, is directly proportional to the net force acting upon it, F, and inversely proportional to its mass, m.

F = ma where F = force [N] m = mass [kg] a = acceleration caused by F [m s-2]

2.5.1 Balanced Forces

Balanced forces = net force is zero

An object that is stationary, or moving with uniform velocity in a straight line, is said to be in a state of balanced forces.

2.5.2 Unbalanced Forces

Unbalanced forces may cause an object to start moving, to speed it up, to slow it down, or to bring it to a stop. The greater the unbalanced force, the greater the acceleration or deceleration produced.

2.5.3 Net Force / Resultant Force

Net force on an object is the overall force resulting from the combination of the individual forces acting upon the object. When the forces are balanced, the net force is zero; as if there is no force acting upon the object. When the forces are unbalanced, the net force is the difference between the forces acting in opposite directions.

Impulse and Impulsive Force

Impulse = change of momentum Ft = mv mu

Impulsive force is the change of momentum in a very short period of time. Impulsive force = rate of change of momentum mv - mu F= t where Ft = impulsive [kg m s-1] F = impulsive force [N] m = mass [kg] u = initial velocity [m s-1] v = final velocity [m s-1]

Gravity

All objects are pulled towards the centre of the earth by a force known as the earth's gravitational force. Any object dropped towards earth which falls under the influence of the earth's gravitational force (without any influence of other external forces, such as air friction) is said to be going through a free fall. In reality, free falls only happen within a vacuum space. An object undergoing free fall will fall at the rate of gravitational acceleration which is at a constant of 9.81 m s-1. The gravitational acceleration is not influenced by the size or mass of the object.

Kinetic energy is energy acquired by an object during movement. E = ½ mv2 where E = kinetic energy [J] m = mass [kg] v = velocity of the object [m s-1] The law of conservation of energy states that energy may neither be created nor destroyed; it can only change shape.

Elasticity is the ability of an object to return to its original shape and size after the applied external force applied onto it has been removed.

Hooke's Law

Hooke's Law states that the extension or compression of a spring is directly proportional to the force acting on it provided the elastic limit of the spring has not been exceeded.
