Description

How can you become really good at  Newton's Laws of Motion, center of mass, linear momentum and collisions?

With over 1000 enrollments and 4.6 star rating, these 50 lessons will help and guide you to become good at this topic

If Newton's third law is true then how does a horse pull a cart. The cart should pull the horse back with the same force.

Well, when the horse pulls the cart, it is true the the cart also pulls the horse with the same force. However, the dynamics are a little more complex. Well does not mean that the force that the horse exerts on the cart has got cancelled. The cart will continue to to experience the pull and so would the horse from the cart being pulled. In a way they are 2 separate forces, each acting on separate object.

This is the reason problems around Newton’s laws of motion are solved by using “free body diagrams”. So if you see the horse in “isolation”, the horse is pulled in the direction of the cart (say right ), the horse itself is also applying a “force” towards the left. As a result, the net force (force vector to the left and force vector to the right) produce a net force vector that makes the horse and the system move

Newton's laws of motion include three laws Newton's first law, Newton's second law, Newton's third law, that in conjunction are rock bed of classical mechanics. So you can see in the above example, how they help us understand the relationship between a mass or a body and the forces acting upon it and the motion in response to those forces.

The second part of this course introduces you to the following concepts- 1. Center of mass (com) for a system of particles , 2.The velocity and acceleration of the center of mass and 3. Linear momentum for a single particle and a system of particles We will learn how center of mass of a system of masses can represent the system as a point. We also discuss the principle of conservation of linear momentum. We will also use the concept of conservation of linear momentum to study collisions in one and two dimensions and understand how momentum of rockets and the exhaust gases changes with time

Some of the most interesting problems in Physics are found in Mechanics. Most of these problems are around inclined planes, falling objects, frictional forces (static friction and dynamic friction), mass acceleration, velocity etc. Section 2 of this course is a compilation of such interesting problems and how they can be solved using Newton's laws of motion. The course makes use of calculus in certain places


Whats different about my courses:

When I create content for the lessons, I think deeply around the areas where students struggle and feel confused. My lessons tackle these parts in depth. Also, I believe visual representation of various ideas makes a lot of impact. The lessons have visuals and animations that are thought through quite deeply

And most importantly, I make myself available personally to answer questions that a student who has enrolled may have

Newton's 3rd law of motion states that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Well, if a horse pulls a carriage, the carriage should also pull it back with the same force. Then why does the carriage start moving? Get a keen understanding of this law that applies to all real life situations.

Newton's first law of motion is amazingly simple yet very powerful. It tells us that bodies at rest will continue to be in state of rest and those in motion will continue to be so, unless some external force acts on them. While the law is simple, a deeper study will be worthwhile.

Newtons' first law of motion - bodies in motion and rest
05:17

Newton's 2nd law of motion states that the net force acting on an object is equal to the product of its mass and the acceleration, that the net force produces in the body. This law is often not put to proper use. This lesson gives a sense of what this law means and how it is applied in solving numerical problems

Linear momentum and force are not often used in solving questions.However there is an interesting derivation that connects the two. The rate of change of momentum of a particle is equal to the the net force on the particle. This definition extends to a system of masses as well and in a system the net force on the system equates with the product of vector sum of velocity of all particles and the sum of the masses

Linear momentum and Force
06:04

Collision and impulse are two important concepts within the topic of linear momentum. Impulse is nothing but change in momentum of a body. It is the product of net force and the time of the force. This in turn equates with the the product of mass and change in velocity. Watch this video to understand this concept and how it can relate to every day life

Elastic collision changes the velocity of masses that interact. It is interesting to analyze how the velocity changes with varying mass. Elastic collision applies to those collisions where the linear momentum and kinetic energy is conserved.This lesson discusses what is elastic collision and how the velocities for different masses result when collision happens

Elastic Collision - Velocity change with varying Mass
07:25

Collision in two dimension follows the momentum conservation principle (provided no external force acts on the system and it is isolated). If the collision is elastic in nature then the kinetic energy is also preserved. Watch this video to develop a better understanding of the topic.

Collision in Two Dimension

The rocket equation is a unique case where the law of conservation of linear momentum needs to be used with some caution. Unlike most cases, here the mass of each of the body under consideration (rocket and fuel) changes every moment.

The problem has a boat being pulled by 3 different forces. If Net Force =0, Find vector F3. We need to find what is the value of the unknown force vector F3 and one unknown angle of one of the forces. Such problems are solved by resolution of all forces in X and Y direction and then taking sum of all forces in X direction and sum of forces in Y direction. These are then equated to the product of mass and acceleration  (zero in this case). As such, it is nothing but utilization of Newtons 2nd law of motion that states that Fnet = ma
