A rightward force is applied to a book in order to move it across a desk at constant velocity. Consider frictional forces. Neglect air resistance. A free-body diagram for this situation looks like this:

2

When mass increases, by how much does gravity increase? What is the relationship?

By the same amount, because they are directly proportional

New cards

3

When distance ______ gravity increases by what factor? What is that relationship?

When distance *DECREASES*, gravity increases by *4 times*. It is an inversely proportional relationship.

New cards

4

What is ALWAYS the independent variable?

X axis variable

5

What are the 4 types of friction?

They are: static friction, sliding friction, rolling friction, and fluid friction.

New cards

6

Static Friction definition?

Static friction is defined as the frictional force that acts between the surfaces when they are at rest with respect to each other. EXP: Table lamp resting on the table.

New cards

7

Sliding Friction Definition?

Sliding friction is defined as the resistance that is created between any two objects when they are sliding against each other. EXP: Two cards sliding against each other in a deck.

New cards

8

Rolling Friction definition?

Rolling friction is defined as the force which resists the motion of a ball or wheel and is the weakest types of friction. EXP: Rolling of the log on the ground

New cards

9

Fluid Friction?

Fluid friction is defined as when a solid object bases through a liquid or a gas: the friction strength is dependant on the "thickness" or viscosity of the conditions. EXP: Swimming in a lake

100g per Newton

Can you have side arrows canceled if the free body diagram has a constant SPEED?

Yes

New cards

12

Can you have side arrows canceled if it says constant VELOCITY?

No, velocity implies movement even when it is constant

Reinforce:

Two forces acting on an object in the same direction combine into one stronger force

New cards

14

Counteract:

Two forces acting on an object from opposite directions counteract each other. The direction of motion goes in the direction of the STRONGER force.

New cards

15

Cancel:

When forces are equal and opposite to one another, they are balanced and there is no effect on the motion of the object.
