### (force) Problems

    1. Draw a proper free-body diagram.

2. Resolve vectors into their components.

3. For each axis, set up an expression for F net , and set it equal to ma.

4. Solve your system of equations.

### Key points to remember

   A net force causes an acceleration, and an acceleration means there is a net force.

Net force and acceleration must be in the same direction.

Only F net is equal to ma, setting single forces = ma is playing with fire.

       The top block begins to move as soon as F reaches a certain minimum value; the bottom block does not move at that instant but would begin to move as F increases further. The top block begins to move as soon as F reaches a certain minimum value; the bottom block would never move even as F increases further. Both blocks begin to move simultaneously as reaches a certain minimum value; as F increases further, both blocks always have the same acceleration. The bottom block begins to move as soon as F reaches a certain minimum value; the top block does not move at that instant but would begin to move as F increases further.

Both blocks begin to move simultaneously as F reaches a certain minimum value; as F increases further, the acceleration of the bottom block exceeds the acceleration of the top block.

 Let’s take a ride in the elevator! On a scale!

### Practice Problem

 Starting from rest, an elevator accelerates uniformly between the 1st and 2nd floors, and decelerates uniformly between the 5th and 6th floors, coming to a stop at the 6th floor. Between the 2nd and 5th floors, the elevator covers the 6 meter distance between two adjacent floors in 1 second. Inside, Liz (who is about to graduate) is standing on a scale that reads 800 N when the elevator isn’t moving. What was her minimum scale reading during the trip? Use g = 10 m/s 2 .

### Practice Problem

 A student steps onto a bathroom scale in a stationary elevator on the first floor of the Acme Building. The elevator accelerates until it reaches the second floor and then continues at constant speed until the 5th floor, where it starts slowing and stops on the 6th floor. Which sketch of the apparent weight (reading of the scale) vs. time during the entire process is most likely to be correct?

### Law

    Forces come in pairs. If F m,E , then F E,m .

Why don’t N3 pairs cancel out?

Example: I kick a ball, there is a force of foot-on-ball and a force of ball-on-foot, why does the ball move?
