For each situation, begin by drawing a box that represents the object. 2. Draw an arrow from the box in the direction of each push or pull 3. Label each force arrow with a letter or word describing it. This think 1. Is the object on or near the Earth? If so, add a weight vector! Weight always acts downward, no matter whether the object is sitting on the floor, sliding downhill, or falling through the air. 2. |s there a surface supporting the object? If so, add a normal vector. Surfaces support perpendicular to themselves. Therefore, a horizontal floor pushes up on you so you don’t crash through it. A slanted floor pushes up and out at an angle. 3. Are any surfaces rubbing against each other? if so, add a friction force vector. Friction opposes motion, 30 if you are standing on a hill friction acts up the hill. You know this s true, because if you didn’t have friction (if someone oiled the hillside) you would slide downhill. Thus, friction must be pulling you uphill. Air friction will only be considered for something moving very fast, such as a jet plane or a person who falls out of a jet plane. A person falling down a hill will not experience air friction. 4.1s a rope or chain pulling on the object? If so, add a tension vector. Tension is always in the same direction as the rppe or chain. Recall the wisdom “you can’t push on a rope” and you'll do fine. 5. Is anything else pushing or pulling on the object? If so, add another force vector and label it. Example: A person glides along the ice on skates. Force diagram: N t dw Notice there are no horizontal vectors. That is because there are no horizontal forces, since the person is {gliding (not pushing off the ice) and ice is considered frictionless.
