Newtonian Mechanics
 The study of the relation between force & acceleration is
called Newtonian mechanics
 Newtonian mechanics does not apply to all situations;
 If the speeds of the interacting bodies are very large (near
the speed of light) à Einstein’s special theory of relativity
applied
 If the interacting bodies are on the scale of atomic structure,
e.g. electrons à quantum mechanics is applied
 Newtonian mechanics is applied to the motion of objects
ranging in size from the very small to astronomical
objects
Send a puck sliding over the ice of a skating rink, however, and it goes a
lot farther. You can imagine longer and more slippery surfaces, over which the
puck would slide farther and farther. In the limit you can think of a long, extremely slippery surface (said to be a frictionless surface), over which the
puck would hardly slow. (We can in fact come close to this situation by sending a puck sliding over a horizontal air table, across which it moves on a film

Newton’s First Law
Newton’s First Law: If no force acts on a body, the body’s velocity cannot change;
that is, the body cannot accelerate.
In other words, if the body is at rest, it stays at rest. If it is moving, it continues to
move with the same velocity (same magnitude and same direction).

Mass
 Force produces different magnitudes of acceleration for different
bodies
 e.g., if a baseball
& a bowling ball
are given the
same kick
à baseball acceleration > bowling ball?
 Because the mass of the baseball differs from the mass of the bowling
 A less massive baseball receives a greater acceleration than a more
massive bowling ball when the same force is applied to both
 The mass of a body is the characteristic that relates a force on the
body to the resulting acceleration
 Mass is:
 an intrinsic characteristic of a body
 a scalar quantity

Q.4: Three forces act on a particle of mass m, F1 = 80i + 60j,
F2 = 40i + 100j. If the particle moves with a constant speed of
4m/s, then F3 is:

F1 + F2 + F3 = 0 à F3 = − (F1 + F2 ) = −120i − 160j
Q.5: Two forces act on a particle that moves with constant
velocity. If F1 = 6i − 2j, then F2 is:
(a) 6i − 2k
(b) − 2i + 6k (c) − 6i + 2j
(d) − 2i + 6j

1. Equal-arm balance: the body is placed on one of

 The weight of a body must be measured when the body is not
accelerating vertically relative to the ground
 A body’s weight is not its mass
 Weight is the magnitude of a force
 Weight is related to mass by Newton’s 2nd law
 If a body is moved to a point where the value of g is
different:
 The body’s mass will not differ
 The body’s weight will differ
e.g., for a bowling ball of mass 0.3 kg
On Earth
On Moon
M = 0.3 Kg
M = 0.3 Kg
g = 9.8 m/s2

Now note that Eqs. 5-18 and 5-20 are simultaneous equations with the same two unknowns, T and a. Subtracting
these equations eliminates T. Then solving for a yields

Q The problem is now solved, right?
That’s a fair question, but the problem is not really finished until we have examined the results to see whether they
make sense. (If you made these calculations on the job,
wouldn’t you want to see whether they made sense before
you turned them in?)
Look first at Eq. 5-21. Note that it is dimensionally
correct and that the acceleration a will always be less than g.
This is as it must be, because the hanging block is not in free
