chapter 4
Newtons 1st law---An object at rest remains at rest, and an object in motion remains in
motion at constant speed and in a straight line unless acted on by an unbalanced force.
eg. a bike laying on the ground ﬂat stays like that unless an unbalanced force acts on it
( a person lifting the bike up) and a rolling bike will keep rolling and it will only stop
unless an unbalanced force acts on it. The combined friction from ground and air will
cause it to slow down. WITHOUT friction the bike would keep on going forever.
2nd law---The acceleration of an object depends on the mass of the object and the
amount of force applied.
acceleration=force/mass ( the larger the force, the larger the acceleration)
eg. a person pushing a bike with little force with just get the bike rolling
a person pushing a bike with maximum force with make the bike accelerate
!!!!BUT MASS ALSO PLAYS A ROLE
a person pushing a bike with a child riding=bike will move faster
a person pushing a bike with an adult riding=bike moving much slower
THESE BIKE RIDERS ALSO HAVE MOMENTUM
momentum=mass*velocity
NEWTONS 2ND LAW OF MOTION AFFECTS MOMENTUM BECUSE:
since an unbalanced force causes acceleration, which is a change in velocity, then force
also changes momentum
3rd law----Forces act in equal and opposing pairs
you push down on the ground when u walk and the ground pushes up towards your feet
3 basic terms on how an object is moving
1)Speed- how far a car will go in a certain time (100km/hr)
2)Velocity- both speed and time
3)Acceleration- if the speed or direction change (slowing speed or change in direction
is negative acceleration
Galileo- demonstrated that gravity accelerates all objects by the same amount
regardless of their mass
*air resistance causes difference in acceleration*
Acceleration of Gravity- acceleration of falling objects (g)
*Earth acceleration for falling objects is 10m/s*

Over 90% improved by at least one letter grade.

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!

Balancing social life With academics can be difficult, that is why I'm so glad that OneClass is out there where I can find the top notes for all of my classes. Now I can be the all-star student I want to be.

As a college student living on a college budget, I love how easy it is to earn gift cards just by submitting my notes.

OneClass has allowed me to catch up with my most difficult course! #lifesaver
