Your T.A. you will meet Jan.9-14 What is Physics? Paul Hewitt, the author of the course textbook, says: You know you cant enjoy a game unless you know its rules; whether its a ball game, a computer game, or simply a party game. Likewise, you cant fully appreciate your surroundings until you understand the rules of nature.

Physics is the study of these rules, which show how everything in nature is beautifully connected. So the main reason to study physics is to enhance the way you see the physical world. Youll see the mathematical structure of physics in frequent equations, but more than being recipes for computation, youll see the equations as guides to thinking. PhysicsThe Basic Science Physical sciences include geology, astronomy, chemistry, and physics.

Life sciences include biology, zoology, and botany. Physics underlies all the sciences. Physics at U of T Some of the top research fields in our department are: Atmospheric Observational and Computational Biological Physics Condensed Matter Physics Theoretical and Experimental

High Energy Particle Physics Theoretical and Experimental Geophysics Quantum Optics Physics Education Research Physics at U of T Physics at U of T Angry Birds at Summer Science Camp, led by Professor Sabine Stanley (Earth, Atmospheric and

What you need to buy (3 things) 3. A calculator - this doesnt need to be too fancy, but it must have SIN, COS, TAN buttons on it. For example a new Casio fx-260 is $16. Tutorials Tutorials begin this Wednesday You should go to your tutorial section every Wednesday, Friday or Monday See the web-site for your room location based on what TUT section you are

enrolled in Tutorial worksheets are worth 5% of the course mark. Problem Set 1 will be distributed in tutorial this week and next Monday. Tests

Test 1 is Wednesday, Jan. 30 during class time in EX100 Test 2 is Wednesday, Mar. 6 during class time in EX100 Each test is worth 17.5% of the course mark. The tests will involve a combination of multiple choice and written questions, which will test your understanding of course material and ability to

think and apply what you have learned to simple problems and explaining phenomena. A simple pocket calculator and a 5"3" index card with your own hand-written notes will be permitted during the tests. Two balls are launched along a pair of tracks with equal velocities, as shown. Both balls reach the end of the track. Predict: Which ball will reach the end of the track first? A

B C: They will reach the end of the track at the same time 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Demo: Two balls were launched along a pair of tracks with equal velocities. Both balls reached the end of the track. Observe: Which ball reached the end of the track first? A B

C: They reached the end of the track at the same time 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Why does ball B reach the end of the track first? Explanation: Balls A and B start and end with the same speed. But while ball B is on the lower part, it is going faster than ball A because gravity has sped it up. Its average speed is greater, so it gets there first!

2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Galileos Inertia Experiment A ball rolls down a hill, along a flat part, and then up a hill again It tends to roll up to the same height from which it was released (or a little less) What if there was no second hill? Q: What keeps an object going if it is already moving? A: Its inertia.

Isaac Newton 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Born in 1643, the year Galileo died. Was a physicist, mathematician, astronomer, natural philosopher, alchemist, and theologian

and one of the most influential people in human history. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isaac_Newton) In Philosophi Naturalis Principia Mathematica, published 1687, he described universal gravitation and the three laws of motion, laying the groundwork for classical mechanics.

What is a force? A force is a push or a pull A force acts on an object Pushes and pulls are applied to something From the objects perspective, it has a force exerted on it The S.I. unit of force is

the Newton (N) 1 N = 1 kg m s2 25 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. What is a force? Vector quantity a quantity whose description requires both magnitude (how much) and direction (which way) can be represented by arrows drawn to scale, called vectors

length of arrow represents magnitude and arrowhead shows direction Net Force Net force is the combination of all forces that change an objects state of motion. Examples: Net Force One person pushes a cart to the right with a force of 5 N.

At the same time, a second person pushes the same cart to the left with a force of 10 N. What is the magnitude of the net force on the cart? A. 0 N B. 5 N C. 10 N D. 15 N Net Force One person pushes a cart to the right with a

force of 5 N. At the same time, a second person pushes the same cart to the left with a force of 10 N. What is the direction of the net force on the cart? A. To the left B. To the right Net Force One person pushes a cart to the right with a force of 5 N.

At the same time, a second person pushes the same cart to the left with a force of 10 N. The net force on the cart is 5 N to the left. Two forces are in opposite directions, so they subtract. The direction is determined by the direction of the larger force. The Equilibrium Rule The vector sum of forces acting on a nonaccelerating object equals zero. In equation form: F = 0.

The Equilibrium Rule : Example A string holding up a bag of flour Two forces act on the bag of flour: Tension force acts upward. Weight acts downward. Both are equal in magnitude and opposite in direction. When added, they cancel to zero. So, the bag of flour remains at rest.

Normal Force The normal force on an object resting on a flat surface is an upward force on an object that is opposite to the force of gravity. Example: A book on a table compresses Atoms in the table, and the compressed atoms produce the support force. Understanding Normal Force When you push down on

a spring, the spring pushes back up on you. Similarly, when a book pushes down on a table, the table pushes back up on the book. Equilibrium of Moving Things Equilibrium: a state of no change with no net force acting Static equilibrium

Example: hockey puck at rest on slippery ice Dynamic equilibrium Example: hockey puck sliding at constant speed on slippery ice Equilibrium of Moving Things A man pushes a crate with a force to the right. The downward gravity force is balanced by an upward normal force. normal

push gravity Can this crate move at a constant velocity? A. Yes B. No, there must be another force involved. Equilibrium of Moving Things Equilibrium test: whether something undergoes changes in motion

Example: A crate at rest is in static equilibrium. Example: When pushed at a steady speed, it is in dynamic equilibrium. 1 Newtons First Law The natural state of an object with no net external force on it is to either remain at rest or continue to move in a straight line with a constant velocity.

2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Thinking About Force Forces exist due to interactions happening now, not due to what happened in the past Consider a flying arrow A pushing force was required to accelerate the arrow as it was shot However, no force is

needed to keep the arrow moving forward as it flies It continues to move because of inertia 39 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. The Reference Frame of a Moving Car Is it possible to juggle in a car that is moving at 100 km/h on the highway? Yes!

Velocity is relative. If your laboratory is enclosed inside the back of a truck with no windows, there is no experiment you can do to determine whether the truck is at rest or moving along the highway at a steady speed.
