PHYSICS 231 INTRODUCTORY PHYSICS I Lecture 6 Last Lecture: Gravity Normal forces Strings, ropes and Pulleys Today: Friction Work and Kinetic Energy

Potential Energy Conservation of Energy Frictional Forces RESISTIVE force between object and neighbors or the medium Examples: Sliding a box Air resistance Rolling resistance Sliding Friction

Parallel to surface, opposing direction of motion ~ independent of the area of contact Depends on the surfaces in contact Object at rest: Static friction Object in motion: Kinetic friction Static Friction, s fs sN Just enough force to

keep object at rest. s is coefficient of static friction N is the normal force f F Kinetic Friction, k fk = kN

k < s k is coefficient of kinetic friction Friction force opposes direction of motion N is the normal force f F Coefficients of Friction

Work-Energy Theorem Example 5.1 A skater of mass 60 kg has an initial velocity of 12 m/s. He slides on ice where the frictional force is 36 N. How far will the skater slide before he stops? 120 m Potential Energy If force depends on distance, we can define

Potential Energy This must be independent of Path -> Conservative Force PE = Fx For gravity (near Earths surface) PE = mgh Conservation of Energy PE f + KE f = PEi + KEi

KE =PE Conservative forces: Gravity, electrical, Non-conservative forces: Friction, air resistance Non-conservative forces still conserve energy! Energy just transfers to thermal energy (heat) Example 5.2 A diver of mass m drops from a board 10.0 m above

the water surface, as in the Figure. Find his speed 5.00 m above the water surface. Neglect air resistance. 9.9 m/s Example 5.3 A skier slides down the frictionless slope as shown. What is the skiers speed at the bottom? start

H=40 m finish L=250 m 28.0 m/s Example 5.4 Three identical balls are thrown from the top of a building with the same initial speed. Initially, Ball 1 moves horizontally.

Ball 2 moves upward. Ball 3 moves downward. Neglecting air resistance, which ball the1 fastest speed A)has Ball B)when Ballit2 hits the ground? C) Ball 3 D) All have the same speed. Example 5.5

Two blocks, A and B (mA=50 kg and mB=100 kg), are connected by a string as shown. If the blocks begin at rest, what will their speeds be after A has slid a distance s = 0.25 m? Assume the pulley and incline are frictionless. 1.51 m/s s Example 5.6 Tarzan swings from a vine whose length is 12 m. If Tarzan

starts at an angle of 30 degrees with respect to the vertical and has no initial speed, what is his speed at the bottom of the arc? 5.61 m/s
