**Force**

It is the force that enables us to do any work.

To do anything, either we pull or push the object. Therefore, pull or push is called force.

**Example –**to open a door, either we push or pull it. A drawer is pulled to open and pushed to close.

**Effect of Force:**

Force can make a stationary body in motion. For example a football can be set to move by kicking it, i.e. by applying a force.

**Force can stop a moving body –**For example by applying brakes, a running cycle or a running vehicle can be stopped.

Force can change the direction of a moving object. For example; By applying force, i.e. by moving handle the direction of a running bicycle can be changed. Similarly by moving steering the direction of a running vehicle is changed.

**Force can change the speed of a moving body –**By accelerating, the speed of a running vehicle can be increased or by applying brakes the speed of a running vehicle can be decreased.

Force can change the shape and size of an object. For example -– By hammering, a block of metal can be turned into a thin sheet. By hammering a stone can be broken into pieces.

**Forces are mainly of two types:**

*Balanced Forces*

*Unbalanced Forces*

**Balanced Forces**

If the resultant of applied forces is equal to zero, it is called balanced forces.

**Example : -**In the tug of war if both the teams apply similar magnitude of forces in oppoisite directions, rope does not move in either side. This happens becasue of balanced forces in which resultant of applied forces become zero.

Balanced forces do not cause any change of state of an object. Balanced forces are equal in magnitude and opposite in direction.

Balanced forces can change the shape and size of an object. For example - When forces are applied from both sides over a balloon, the size and shape of balloon is changed.

**Unbalanced Forces**

If the resultant of applied forces are greater than zero the forces are called unbalanced forces. An object in rest can be moved because of applying balanced forces.

**Unbalanced forces can do the following:**

*1.Move a stationary object.*

*2.Increase the speed of a moving object.*

*3.Decrease the speed of a moving object.*

*4.Stop a moving object.*

*5.Change the shape and size of an object.*

**Laws of Motion:**

**Galileo Galilei:**Galileo first of all said that object move with a constant speed when no forces act on them. This means if an object is moving on a frictionless path and no other force is acting upon it, the object would be moving forever. That is there is no unbalanced force working on the object.

But practically it is not possible for any object. Because to attain the condition of zero unbalanced force is impossible. Force of friction, force air and many other forces always acting upon an object.

**Newton’s Laws of Motion:**

Newton studied the ideas of Galileo and gave the three laws of motion. These laws are known as Newton’s Laws of Motion.

**Newton's First Law of Motion -**Any object remains in the state of rest or in uniform motion along a straight line, until it is compelled to change the state by applying external force.

**Newton's Second Law of Motion -**The rate of change of momentum is directly proportional to the force applied in the direction of force.

**Newton's Third Law of Motion -**There is an equal and opposite reaction for evrey action

**Newton’s First Law of Motion:**

Any object remains in the state of rest or in uniform motion along a straight line, until it is compelled to change the state by applying external force.

**Explanation:**If any object is in the state of rest, then it will remain in rest untill a exernal force is applied to change its state. Similarly an object will remain in motion untill any exeternal force is applied over it to change its state. This means all objects resist to in changing their state. The state of any object can be changed by applying external forces only.

**Newton’s First Law of Motion in Everyday Life:**

*1.A person standing in a bus falls backward when bus is start moving suddenly. This happens because the person and bus both are in rest while bus is not moving, but as the bus starts moving the legs of the person start moving along with bus but rest portion of his body has tendency to remain in rest. Because of this person falls backward; if he is not alert.*

*2.A person standing in a moving bus falls forward if driver applies brakes suddenly. This happens because when bus is moving, the person standing in it is also in motion along with bus. But when driver applies brakes the speed of bus decreases suddenly or bus comes in the state of rest suddenly, in this condition the legs of the person which are in the contact with bus come in rest while the rest parts of his body have tendency to remain in motion. Because of this person falls forward if he is not alert.*

*3.Before hanging the wet clothes over laundry line, usually many jerks are given to the cloths to get them dried quickly. Because of jerks droplets of water from the pores of the cloth falls on the ground and reduced amount of water in clothes dried them quickly. This happens because, when suddenly cloth are made in motion by giving jerks, the water droplets in it have tendency to remain in rest and they are separated from cloths and fall on the ground.*

*4.When the pile of coin on the carom-board hit by a striker; coin only at the bottom moves away leaving rest of the pile of coin at same place. This happens because when the pile is struck with a striker, the coin at the bottom comes in motion while rest of the coin in the pile has tendency to remain in the rest and they vertically falls the carom board and remain at same place.*

*5.Seat belts are used in car and other vehicles, to prevent the passengers being thrown in the condition of sudden braking or other emergency. In the condition of sudden braking of the vehicles or any other emergency such as accident, the speed of vehicle would decrease or vehicle may stop suddenly, in that condition passengers may be thrown in the direction of the motion of vehicle because of the tendency to remain in the state of motion.*

*6.The head of hammer is tightened on a wooden handle by banging the handle against a hard surface. When handle of the hammer is struck against a surface, handle comes in rest while hammer over it's head has tendency to remain in motion and thus after some jerks it tightens over the handle.*

**Mass and Inertia:**

The property of an object because of which it resists to get disturbed its state is called Inertia. Inertia of an object is measured by its mass. Intertia is directly proportional to the mass. This means inertia increases with increase in mass and decreases with decrease in mass. A heavy object will have more inertia than lighter one.

In other words, the natural tendecny of an object that resists the change in state of motion or rest of the boject is called intertia.

Since a heavy object has more intertia, thus it is difficult to push or pul a heavy box over the ground than lighter one.

**MOMENTUM**

Momentum is the power of motion of an object.

The product of velocity and mass is called the momentum. Momentum is denoted by ‘p’.

Therefore, momentum of the object = Mass x Velocity.

Or, p = m x v

Where, p = momentum, m = mass of the object and v = velocity of the object.

__Consider the following explanations to understand the momentum:__

*1.A person get injured in the case of hitting by a moving object, such as stone, pebbles or anything because of momentum of the object.*

*2.Even a small bullet is able to kill a person when it is fired from a gun becasue of its momentum due to great velocity.*

*3.A person get injured severely when hit by a moving vehicles, becasue of momentum of vehicle due to mass and velocity.*

**Momentum and Mass and Velocity:**

Since, momentum is the product of mass and velocity (p = m x v) of an object. This means momentum is directly proportional to mass and velocity. Momentum increases with increase of either mass or velocity of an object.

This means if a lighter and a heavier object is moving with same velocity, then heavier object will have more momentum than lighter one.

If a small object is moving with great velocity, it has tremendous momentum. And because of momentum, it can harm an object more severely. For example a small bullet having a little mass even kills a person when it is fired from a gun.

Usually, road accidents prove more fatal because of high speed than in slower speed. This happens because vehicles running with high speed have greater momentum compare to a vehicle running with slower speed.

**Momentum of an which is in the state of rest:**

Let an object with mass 'm' is in the rest.

Since, object is in rest, therefore, it's velocity, v = 0

Now, we know that,

Momentum = mass x velocity

Or, p = m x 0 = 0

Thus, the momentum of an object in the rest, i.e. non-moving,is equal to zero.

**Unit of momentum:**

__The SI unit of mass = kg__

__The SI unit of velocity = meter per second i.e. m/s__

We know that, momentum (p) = m x v

Therefore,

p = kg x m/s

Or, p = kg m/s

Therefore, SI unit of momentum = kg m/s

**Newton's Second Law of Motion**

Newton's second Law of Motion states that The rate of change of momentum is directly proportional to the force applied in the direction of force.

**For example;**when acceleration is applied on a moving vehicle, the momentum of the vehicle increases and the increase is in the direction of motion because the force is being applied in the direction of motion. On the other hand, when brake is applied on the moving vehicle, the momentum of the vehicle decreases and the decrease is in the opposite direction of motion because the force is being applied in the opposite direction of motion.

__Mathematical formulation of Newton’s Second Law of Motion:__

Let mass of an moving object = m.

Let the velocity of the object changes from ‘u’ to ‘v’ in the interval of time ‘t’.

This means,

Initial velocity of the object = u.

Final velocity of the object = v.

We know that momentum (p) = Mass x velocity

Therefore,

Momentum (p) of the object at its initial velocity u = m x u = mu

Momentum (p) of the object at its final velocity v = m x v = mv

The change in momentum = mv – mu

According to the Newton’s Second Law of motion force is directly proportional to the rate of change of momentum.

This means, Force ∝ Rate of change of moentum

After substituting the value of rate of change of momentum from equation (i) we get.

Where,

a = acceleration, u = initial velocity, v = final velocity, and t = time taken to change in velocity

By substituting the value from equation (iii) in equation (ii) we get

⇒ F ∝ m.a

⇒ F = k.m.a-------(iv)

Where, k is proportionality constant.

Since, 1 unit force is defined as the mass of 1kg object produces the acceleration of 1m/s2

Therefore, 1 unit of Force = k x 1 kg x 1m/s2

Thus k = 1.

By substituting the value of ‘k = 1’ in equation (iv) we get

F = m.a----------(v)

⇒ Force = mass × acceleration

*Thus Newton’s Second Law of Motion gives the relation between force, mass and acceleration of an object.*

According to the relation obtained above, Newton’s Second Law can be modified as follows:

The product of mass and acceleration is the force acting on the object.

__The SI unit of Force: Newton (N)__

Since Force = Mass x Acceleration

The unit of mass = kg and The unit of acceleration = m/s2

If force, mass and acceleration is taken as 1 unit.

Therefore,

1 Newton (N) = 1kg x 1m/s2

Thus, Newton (N) = kg m/s2

Equation (v) can be also written as

This equation is the form of Newton’s Second Law of Motion. According to this equation, Newton’s Second Law of Motion can also be stated as follow:

The acceleration produced by a moving body is directly proportional to the force applied over it and inversely proportional to the mass of the object.

**From the above relation it is clear that**

*1.Acceleration increases with increase in force and vice versa.*

*2.Acceleration decreases with increase in mass and vice versa.*

That’s why a small vehicle requires less force to attain more acceleration while a heavy vehicle requires more force to get the same acceleration.

**Newton’s Second Law of Motion in everyday life:**

*(a) A fielder pulls his hand backward; while catching a cricket ball coming with a great speed, to reduce the momentum of the ball with a little delay. According to Newton’s Second Law of Motion; rate of change of momentum is directly proportional to the force applied in the direction.*

*While catching a cricket ball the momentum of ball is reduced to zero when it is stopped after coming in the hands of fielder. If the ball is stopped suddenly, its momentum will be reduced to zero instantly. The rate of change in momentum is very quick and as a result, the player’s hand may get injured. Therefore, by pulling the hand backward a fielder gives more time to the change of momentum to become zero. This prevents the hands of fielder from getting hurt.*

*(b) For athletes of long and high jump sand bed or cushioned bed is provided to allow a delayed change of momentum to zero because of jumping of athlete.*

*When an athlete falls on the ground after performing a high or long jump, the momentum because of the velocity and mass of the athlete is reduced to zero. If the momentum of an athlete will be reduced to zero instantly, the force because of momentum may hurt the player. By providing a cushioned bed, the reduction of the momentum of the athlete to zero is delayed. This prevents the athlete from getting hurt.*

*(c) Seat belts in car - Seat belts in the vehicles prevent the passenger from getting thrown in the direction of motion. In case of emergency, such as accidents or sudden braking, passengers may be thrown in the direction of motion of vehicle and may get fatal injuries. The stretchable seat belts increase the time of the rate of momentum to be reduced to zero. The delayed reduction of momentum to zero prevents passengers from such fatal injury.*

Thus, the velocity of the vehicle will be 15m/s.

__Question – 9 – An object gets the velocity of 10 m/s after applying a force of 500N for 5 second. If the mass of the object is equal to 1000 kg, what was its velocity before applying the force?__

Solution:

According to the question:

Mass (m) = 1000 kg, Force (F) = 500N, time (t) = 10m/s, Final velocity (v) = 10m/s

Therefore, Initial velocity (u) =?

⇒ 500 kg ms-2 × 10s = 10000 kg ms-1-1000 kg × u

⇒ 5000 kg m/s = 10000 kg m/s - 1000 kg × u

⇒ 5000 kg m/s - 10000 kg m/s = -1000 kg × u

⇒ -5000kg m/s = -1000 kg × u

Thus speed of object was 5m/s

__Question – 1- The acceleration of two objects are 5m/s2 and 20m/s2. If mass of both the object would be combined and a force of 50N would be applied on them, what will be their acceleration?__

Solution:

In the order to calculate the acceleration of both the objects after combining their mass, first of all their mass will be calculated.

Ist object:

Given, Acceleration (a) = 20m/s2

Let the mass of one body = m1

And a force of 50N will be applied over it.

We know that Force (F) = Mass (m) x Acceleration (a)

⇒ 50N = m1 × 5ms-2

2nd Object:

Given, Acceleration (a) = 20m/s2

Let the mass of one body = m2

And a force of 50N will be applied over it.

We know that Force (F) = Mass (m) x Acceleration (a)

⇒ 50N = m2 × 5 ms-2

Now their total mass = m1 + m2 = 10 kg + 2.5 kg = 12.5 kg

In this condition:

Mass (m) = 12.5 kg, Force (F) = 50N, therefore, Acceleration (a) =?

We know that, F = m x a

Therefore, 50N = 12.5kg × a

Thus, Acceleration = 4 ms-2

**Newton's Third Law of Motion**

Newton’s Third Law of Motion states that there is always reaction for every action in opposite direction and of equal magnitude.

**Explanation:**Whenever a force is applied over a body, that body also applies same force of equal magnitude and in opposite direction.

**Example –**

*(a) Walking of a person - A person is able to walk because of the Newton’s Third Law of Motion. During walking, a person pushes the ground in backward direction and in the reaction the ground also pushes the person with equal magnitude of force but in opposite direction. This enables him to move in forward direction against the push.*

*(b) Recoil of gun - When bullet is fired from a gun, the bullet also pushes the gun in opposite direction, with equal magnitude of force. This results in gunman feeling a backward push from the butt of gun.*

*(c) Propulsion of a boat in forward direction – Sailor pushes water with oar in backward direction; resulting water pushing the oar in forward direction. Consequently, the boat is pushed in forward direction. Force applied by oar and water are of equal magnitude but in opposite directions.*

**Conservation of Momentum –**

**Law of Conservation of Momentum –**The sum of momenta of two objects remains same even after collision.

In other words, the sum of momenta of two objects before collision and sum of momenta of two objects after collision are equal.

__Mathematical Formulation of Conservation of Momentum:__

Suppose that, two objects A and B are moving along a straight line in same direction and the velocity of A is greater than the velocity of B.

Let the initial velocity of A=u1

Let the initial velocity of B= u2

Let the mass of A= m1

Let the mass of B=m2

Let both the objects collide after some time and collision lasts for ' t' second.

Let the velocity of A after collision= v1

Let the velocity of B after collision= v2

We know that, Momentum = Mass x Velocity

Therefore,

Now, we know that Rate of change of momentum = mass X rate of change in velocity

Therefore, rate of change of momentum of A during collision,

Similarly, the rate of change of momentum of B during collision,

Since, according to the Newton’s Third Law of Motion, action of the object A (force exerted by A) will be equal to reaction of the object B (force exerted by B). But the force exerted in the course of action and reaction is in opposite direction.

Therefore,

Above equation says that total momentum of object A and B before collision is equal to the total momentum of object A and B after collision. This means there is no loss of momentum, i.e. momentum is conserved. This situation is considered assuming there is no external force acting upon the object.

This is the Law of Conservation of Momentum, which states that in a closed system the total momentum is constant.

In the condition of collision, the velocity of the object which is moving faster is decreased and the velocity of the object which is moving slower is increased after collision. The magnitude of loss of momentum of faster object is equal to the magnitude of gain of momentum by slower object after collision.

**Conservation of Momentum – Practical Application**

**Bullet and Gun –**When bullet is fired from a gun, gun recoils in the opposite direction of bullet. The momentum of bullet is equal to momentum of gun. Since, the bullet is has very small mass compared to the gun, hence velocity of bullet is very high compared to the recoil of gun. In the case of firing of bullet, law of conservation of momentum is applied as usual.

In the collision of atoms, the conservation of momentum is applied.

In the game of snooker, when a ball is hit by stick, the conservation of momentum is applied.

When the mouth of an inflated balloon is let open, it starts flying, because of conservation of momentum.

When a cricket ball is hit by bat, the Law of Conservation of Momentum is applied.

When the coins of carom board are hit by striker, the Law of Conservation of Momentum is applied.

Newton’s cradle is one of the best examples of conservation of momentum.

**Conservation of Momentum - Numerical Problems**

__Question:- 1 – Find the recoil velocity of a gun having mass equal to 5 kg, if a bullet of 25gm acquires the velocity of 500m/s after firing from the gun.__

Answer:-

Here given,

Mass of bullet (m1) = 25 gm = 0.025 kg

Velocity of bullet before firing (u1) = 0

Velocity of bullet after firing (v1) = 500 m/s

Mass of gun (m2) = 5 kg

Velocity of gun before firing, (u2) = 0

Velocity of gun after firing = ?

We know that,

Thus, recoil velocity of gun is equal to 2.5 m/s. Here negative (- ve) sign shows that gun moves in the opposite direction of bullet.

__Question:- 2 – A bullet of 5 gm is fired from a pistol of 1.5 kg. If the recoil velocity of pistol is 1.5 m/s, find the velocity of bullet.__

Answer:-

Here we have,

Mass of bullet, m1 = 5 gm = 5/1000 kg = 0.005 kg

Mass of pistol, m2 = 1.5 kg

Recoil velocity of pistol v2 = 1.5 m/s

Velocity of bullet v1 =?

Since, before firing the bullet and pistol are in rest, thus

Initial velocity of bullet, u1 =0

And initial recoil velocity of pistol, u2 =0

We know that,

Thus, velocity of bullet = 450 m/s, here negative sign with velocity of pistol shows that, bullet moves in the opposite direction of pistol.

__Question:- 3 – A boy of 50 kg mass is running with a velocity of 2 m/s. He jumps over a stationary cart of 2 kg while running. Find the velocity of cart after jumping of boy.__

Answer:

Here given,

Mass (m1) of boy = 50 kg

Initial Velocity (u1) of boy = 2 m/s

Mass (m2) of cart = 2 kg

Initial Velocity (u2) of cart = 0

Final velocity of cart (v2) =?

Since, boy jumped over cart thus, thus the final velocity (v1) of boy will be equal to that of the cart.

Therefore, v1 = v2

We know that,

Therefore, velocity of cart after jumping of boy over it is equal to 1.92 m/s. Since, velocity has positive sign, thus, cart will go in the same direction of boy.

__Question: 4 – While playing football match, Kris collided and got entangled with Tom who was playing for opposite team and running from opposite side. The mass of Kris was 40 kg and the mass of Tom was 60 kg. If Tom was running with a velocity of 3m/s and Kris was running with a velocity of 4 m/s, find the velocity and direction of both of the players after collision assuming other forces were negligible.__

Answer:

Given,

Mass of Kris (m1) = 40 kg

Initial velocity of Kris (u1) = 4 m/s

Mass of Tom (m2) = 60 kg

Initial velocity of Tom (u2) = 3 m/s

Final velocity and direction of both of the player after collision =?

Let final velocity of both of the players after collision = v

Let Kris was coming from left and Tom was coming from right.

Let the velocity of Kris is positive, therefore velocity of Tom will be negative as both were running in opposite directions.

Thus, initial velocity of Kris (u1) = 4 m/s

And the initial velocity of Tom (u2) = - 3 m/s

We know that,

Thus, velocity of both the player would become – 0.2 m/s. Negative velocity shows that they would go from right to left after collision.
