 Newton’s First Law of Motion (Law of Inertia)

- A body will continue its state of rest or uniform motion in a straight
line, unless it is acted upon by an external resultant force.
 Newton’s First Law of Motion (Law of Inertia)

- When there is an external force acting, there is a change of motion:

a) Rest ------> motion
b) Motion --------> Rest
c) Change of speed
d) Change in direction
e) Change in both speed and direction

- The natural tendency of objects to resist changes in their state of

motion is described as INERTIA and inertia depends on mass.
 Case A: The car and the wall

- What will happen to the driver if the car is halted by the collision with
the wall?

 Case B: The truck and the ladder

 Newton’s Second Law of Motion

- The rate of change of momentum of a
body is directly proportional to the
resulting force acting on it, and the
momentum change occurs in the
direction of the force.

An object requires a force in order

for it to move with constant
velocity? NO
 Newton’s Third Law of Motion

Definition: If a body A exerts a force on body B, then body B exerts an

equal force but in the opposite direction on body A.
To every action there is an equal but opposite reaction.

**Consider the flying motion of birds. A bird flies by use of its wings.
The wings of a bird push air downwards. Since forces result from
mutual interactions, the air must also be pushing the bird upwards.

** Bird flies at constant height.

 To solve problem involving multiple forces, it is best to sketch each
and every force that is acting on the body
 The steps involving are:
1. Sketch the force
2. Isolate the Object of Interest
3. Choose a convenient coordinate system
4. Resolve the forces into component
5. Apply Newton's Second Law to each coordinate direction

A 4.60-kg sled is pulled across a smooth ice surface.
The force acting on the sled is of magnitude 6.20
N and points in a direction 35.0° above the
horizontal. If the sled starts at rest, how fast is it
going after being pulled for 1.15 s?
 Weight, W, of an object on the Earth’s surface is
the gravitational force exerted on it by the Earth
 The formula is:

 The SI unit still as Newton ,N,.

 The kg usually associate with weight is actually
mass, m,
 The feeling of heavier and lighter when riding an
elevator is an apparent weight.
 If the force is greater than our weight, it will feel
 If the force is lower than our weight, we will feel

As part of an attempt to combine physics and
biology in the same class, an instructor asks
student to weigh a 5.0-kg salmon by hanging it
from a fish scale attached to the ceiling of an
elevator. What is the apparent weight of the
salmon Wa, if the elevator
a) Is at rest

b) Moves with an upward acceleration of 2.5 m/s2

A newborn baby’s brain grows rapidly. In fact, it
has been found to increase in mass by about 1.6
mg per minute.
a) How much does the brain’s weight increase in
one day? [0.023 N]
b) How long does it take for the brain’s weight to
increases by 0.15 N? [6.6 days]
 An object that is at rest on a surface has a total of
zero acceleration.
 This mean that there is an upward force acted on
the object to counter the downward force acted on
the object in the form of weight.
 This force is Normal force.

 It called Normal force is because it is

perpendicular to the surface.

 Friction Force

Definition: Friction is the force that opposes the relative motion of two
surfaces in contact due to the roughness of the surfaces.

- There are two types of frictional forces namely:

a) Static friction
b) Kinetic friction

a) Static friction is the friction between two surfaces before relative

motion occurs.

Normal Force/Reaction R = Weight W

Applied Force F < Static Force Fr
** Object resists to move
Applied Force F > Static Force Fr
** Object starts to move
 Static Friction Force

If Fs = Static friction, R = normal reaction

• Coefficient of static friction,

• Static friction, Fs = µR

dispose of a 95.0-kg crate. For small angles of tilt
the crate stays put, but when the tilt angle

 Friction Force

b) Kinetic friction is the friction between two surfaces after relative

motion occurs.

• Coefficient of kinetic friction,

• Kinetic friction, Fk = µR
