Force
• A force is an action exerted on an object which may
change the object’s state of rest or motion.
• Forces can cause accelerations.
• The SI unit of force is the newton, N.
• Forces can act through contact or at a distance.

Force Diagrams
• The effect of a force depends on both magnitude
and direction.Thus, force is a vector quantity.
• Diagrams that show force vectors as arrows are
called force diagrams.
• Force diagrams that show only the forces acting on a
single object are called free-body diagrams.

Objectives
• Explain the relationship between the motion of an
object and the net external force acting on the object.
• Determine the net external force on an object.
• Calculate the force required to bring an object into
equilibrium.
Resources
Chapter 4
Section 2 Newton’s First Law
Newton’s First Law
• An object at rest remains at rest, and an object in
motion continues in motion with constant velocity
(that is, constant speed in a straight line) unless the
object experiences a net external force.
• In other words, when the net external force on an
object is zero, the object’s acceleration (or the
change in the object’s velocity) is zero.
Resources
Chapter 4
Section 2 Newton’s First Law
Net Force
• Newton's first law refers to the net force on an
object.The net force is the vector sum of all forces
acting on an object.
• The net force on an object can be found by using the
methods for finding resultant vectors.
Although several forces are
acting on this car, the vector sum
of the forces is zero. Thus, the
net force is zero, and the car
moves at a constant velocity.

2. Select a coordinate system, and apply it to the
free-body diagram.
Choose the x-axis parallel to and the y-axis perpendicular to
the incline of the table, as shown in (a). This coordinate
system is the most convenient because only one force needs
to be resolved into x and y components.
Tip: To simplify the problem, always
choose the coordinate system in
which as many forces as possible lie
on the x- and y-axes.

Inertia
• Inertia is the tendency of an object to resist being
moved or, if the object is moving, to resist a change
in speed or direction.
• Newton’s first law is often referred to as the law of
inertia because it states that in the absence of a net
force, a body will preserve its state of motion.
• Mass is a measure of inertia.

Inertia and the Operation of a Seat Belt
•
•
•
While inertia causes
passengers in a car to
continue moving forward as
the car slows down, inertia
also causes seat belts to lock
into place.
The illustration shows how
one type of shoulder harness
operates.
When the car suddenly slows
down, inertia causes the large
mass under the seat to
continue moving, which
activates the lock on the
safety belt.

Equilibrium
• Equilibrium is the state in which the net force on an
object is zero.
• Objects that are either at rest or moving with
constant velocity are said to be in equilibrium.
• Newton’s first law describes objects in equilibrium.
Tip: To determine whether a body is in equilibrium, find the net
force. If the net force is zero, the body is in equilibrium. If there
is a net force, a second force equal and opposite to this net
force will put the body in equilibrium.

Newton’s Second Law
The acceleration of an object is directly
proportional to the net force acting on the
object and inversely proportional to the
object’s mass.
SF = ma
net force = mass  acceleration
SF represents the vector sum of all external forces
acting on the object, or the net force.

Newton’s Third Law
• If two objects interact, the magnitude of the force
exerted on object 1 by object 2 is equal to the
magnitude of the force simultaneously exerted on
object 2 by object 1, and these two forces are
opposite in direction.
• In other words, for every action, there is an
equal and opposite reaction.
• Because the forces coexist, either force can be
called the action or the reaction.

Section 3 Newton’s Second and
Third Laws
Action and Reaction Forces
• Action-reaction pairs do not imply that the net
force on either object is zero.
• The action-reaction forces are equal and opposite,
but either object may still have a net force on it.
Consider driving a nail into wood with
a hammer. The force that the nail
exerts on the hammer is equal and
opposite to the force that the hammer
exerts on the nail. But there is a net
force acting on the nail, which drives
the nail into the wood.

Weight
• The gravitational force (Fg) exerted on an object
by Earth is a vector quantity, directed toward the
center of Earth.
• The magnitude of this force (Fg) is a scalar
quantity called weight.
• Weight changes with the location of an object in
the universe.

• Calculating weight at any location:
Fg = mag
ag = free-fall acceleration at that location

Normal Force
• The normal force acts on a surface in a direction
perpendicular to the surface.
• The normal force is not always opposite in
direction to the force due to gravity.
– In the absence of other forces, the
normal force is equal and opposite
to the component of gravitational
force that is perpendicular to the
contact surface.

Friction
• Static friction is a force that resists the initiation
of sliding motion between two surfaces that are in
contact and at rest.
• Kinetic friction is the force that opposes the
movement of two surfaces that are in contact and
are sliding over each other.
• Kinetic friction is always less than the maximum
static friction.

Friction Forces in Free-Body Diagrams
• In free-body diagrams, the force of friction is always
parallel to the surface of contact.
• The force of kinetic friction is always opposite the
direction of motion.
• To determine the direction of the force of static
friction, use the principle of equilibrium. For an
object in equilibrium, the frictional force must point
in the direction that results in a net force of zero.

2. Plan
Choose a convenient coordinate system, and
find the x and y components of all forces.
The diagram on the right shows the
most convenient coordinate system,
because the only force to resolve
into components is Fapplied.
Fapplied,y = (90.0 N)(sin 30.0&ordm;) = 45.0 N (upward)
Fapplied,x = (90.0 N)(cos 30.0&ordm;) = 77.9 N (to the right)

Choose an equation or situation:
A. Find the normal force, Fn, by applying the condition of
equilibrium in the vertical direction:
SFy = 0
B. Calculate the force of kinetic friction on the box:
Fk = mkFn
C. Apply Newton’s second law along the horizontal direction to
find the acceleration of the box:
SFx = max
Resources
Chapter 4
Section 4 Everyday Forces
Sample Problem, continued
3. Calculate
A. To apply the condition of equilibrium in the vertical direction,
you need to account for all of the forces in the y direction:
Fg, Fn, and Fapplied,y. You know Fapplied,y and can use the box’s
mass to find Fg.
Fapplied,y = 45.0 N
Fg = (20.0 kg)(9.81 m/s2) = 196 N
Next, apply the equilibrium condition,
SFy = 0, and solve for Fn.
SFy = Fn + Fapplied,y – Fg = 0
Fn + 45.0 N – 196 N = 0
Fn = –45.0 N + 196 N = 151 N
Tip: Remember to
pay attention to the
direction of forces.
In this step, Fg is
subtracted from Fn
and Fapplied,y
because Fg is
directed downward.

4. Evaluate
The box accelerates in the direction of the net
force, in accordance with Newton’s second law.
The normal force is not equal in magnitude to the
weight because the y component of the student’s
pull on the rope helps support the box.

Air Resistance
• Air resistance is a form of friction. Whenever an
object moves through a fluid medium, such as air or
water, the fluid provides a resistance to the object’s
motion.
• For a falling object, when the upward force of air
resistance balances the downward gravitational
force, the net force on the object is zero. The object
continues to move downward with a constant
maximum speed, called the terminal speed.

17. You can keep a 3 kg book from dropping by pushing
it horizontally against a wall. Draw force diagrams,
and identify all the forces involved. How do they
combine to result in a zero net force? Will the force
you must supply to hold the book up be different for
different types of walls? Design a series of
which measurements will be necessary and what
equipment you will need.
