Card 7: What are scalar quantities?

Scalar Quantities

1. Scalars are quantities which are fully described by a magnitude alone. 2. Examples of scalar quantities are distance, speed, mass, volume, temperature, density and energy.

Card 8: What are vector quantities?

Vector Quantities

  • 1. Vectors are quantities which are fully described by both a magnitude and a direction.

  • 2. Examples of vector quantities are displacement, velocity, acceleration, force, momentum, and magnetic field.

Card 1: What is error?

Error

Error is the difference between the actual value of a quantity and the value obtained in measurement.

Card 2: What is systematic error?

Systematic Error

Systematic errors are errors which tend to shift all measurements in a systematic way so their mean value is displaced. Systematic errors can be compensated if the errors are known.

Card 3: State 3 sources of systematic error.

Sources of Systematic Error

  • 1. zero error, which cause by an incorrect position of the zero point,

  • 2. an incorrect calibration of the measuring instrument.

  • 3. consistently improper use of equipment.

Steps to reduce Systematic Error

  • 1. Conducting the experiment with care.

  • 2. Repeating the experiment by using different instruments.

Card 5: What is meant by zero error?

Zero Error

Top

  • 1. A zero error arises when the measuring instrument does not start from exactly zero.

  • 2. Zero errors are consistently present in every reading of a measurement.

  • 3. The zero error can be positive or negative.

Card 6: Define random Error

Random Error

  • 1. Random errors arise from unknown and unpredictable variations in condition.

  • 2. It changes from one measurement to the next.

Card 7: State the causes of random error

Causes of Random Error

Random errors are caused by factors that are beyond the control of the observers. Random error can cause by:

  • 1. personal errors such as human limitations of sight and touch.

  • 2. lack of sensitivity of the instrument: the instrument fail to respond to the small change.

  • 3. natural errors such as changes in temperature or wind, while the experiment is in progress.

  • 4. wrong technique of measurement.

Card 8: How random error can be avoided or reduced?

How to avoid random error

  • 1. Taking repeat readings

  • 2. Find the average value of the reading.

Card 9: What is parallax error?

Parallax Error

A parallax error is an error in reading an instrument due to the eye of the observer and pointer are not in a line perpendicular to the plane of the scale.

Card 1: What is meant by precision?

Precision

Precision is the ability of an instrument in measuring a quantity in a consistent manner with only a small relative deviation between readings.

Card 2: How to measure the precision of a measurement?

Relative Deviation

The precision of a reading can be indicated by its relative deviation.

The relative deviation is the percentage of mean deviation for a set of measurements and it is defined by the following formula:

Card 3: Define accuracy.

Accuracy

The accuracy of a measurement is the approximation of the measurement to the actual value for a certain quantity of Physics.

Card 4: How the accuracy of a measurement can be increased?

How to Increase Accuracy

  • 1. taking a number of repeat readings to calculate the mean value of the reading.

  • 2. avoiding the end errors or zero errors.

  • 4. using more sensitive equipment such as a vernier caliper to replace a ruler.

Card 5: What is meant by sensitivity of a measuring instrument?

Sensitivity

  • 1. The sensitivity of an instrument is its ability to detect small changes in the quantity that is being measured.

  • 2. Thus, a sensitive instrument can quickly detect a small change in measurement.

  • 3. Measuring instruments that have smaller scale parts are more sensitive.

  • 4. Sensitive instruments need not necessarily be accurate.

1. Turn the thimble until the object is gripped gently

between the anvil and spindle.

  • 2. Turn the ratchet knob until a "click" sound is heard. This is to prevent exerting too much pressure on the object measured.

Example 1

A student releases a ball with mass of 2 kg from a height of 5 m from the ground. What would be the momentum of the ball just before it hits the ground?

Answer:

In order to find the momentum, we need to know the mass and the velocity of the ball right before it hits the ground. It's given that the mass, m = 2kg.

The velocity is not given directly. However, we can determine the velocity, v, by using the linear equation of uniform acceleration.

This is a free falling motion, The initial velocity, u = 0 The acceleration, a = gravirational acceleration, g = 10ms -2 The dispacement, s = high = 50m. The final velocity = ?

From the equation v 2 = u 2 + 2as v 2 = (0) 2 + 2(10)(5) v = 10ms -1

The momentum, p = mv =(2)(10) = 20 kgms -1

A Car A of mass 600 kg moving at 40 ms -1 collides with a car B of mass 800 kg moving at 20 ms -1 in the same direction. If car B moves forwards at 30 ms -1 by the impact, what is the velocity, v, of the car A immediately after the crash?

Answer:

m1 = 600kg m2 = 800kg u1 = 40 ms -1 u2 = 20 ms -1 v1 = ? v2 = 30 ms -1

According to the principle of conservation of momentum,

m1u1 + m2u2 = m1v1 + m2v2 (600)(40) + (800)(20) = (600)v1 + (800)(30) 40000 = 600v1 + 24000 600v1 = 16000 v1 = 26.67 ms -1

Example 3: Both objects are in opposite direction before collision.

A 0.50kg ball traveling at 6.0 ms -1 collides head-on with a 1.0 kg ball moving in the opposite direction at a speed of 12.0 ms-1. The 0.50kg ball moves backward at 14.0 ms -1 after the collision. Find the velocity of the second ball after collision.

Answer:

m1 = 0.5 kg m2 = 1.0 kg u1 = 6.0 ms -1 u2 = -12.0 ms -1 v1 = -14.0 ms -1 v2 = ?

(IMPORTANT: velocity is negative when the object move in opposite siredtion)

According to the principle of conservation of momentum,

m1u1 + m2u2 = m1v1 + m2v2 (0.5)(6) + (1.0)(-12) = (0.5)(-14) + (1.0)v2 -9 = - 7 + 1v2 v2 = -2 ms -1

Card 4: What is elastic collision?

Elastic Collision

Elastic collision is the collision where the kinetic energy is conserved after the collision.

Total Kinetic Energy before Collision = Total Kinetic Energy after Collision

Additional notes:

-In an elastic collision, the 2 objects seperated right after the collision, and -the momentum is conserved after the collision.

Card 5: What is inelastic collision?

Inelastic Collision

Inelastic collision is the collision where the kinetic energy is not conserved after the collision.

Additional notes:

-In a perfectly elastic collision, the 2 objects attach together after the collision, and -the momentum is also conserved after the collision.

Example 4: Perfectly Inelastic Collision

A lorry of mass 8000kg is moving with a velocity of 30 ms -1 . The lorry is then accidentally collides with a car of mass 1500kg moving in the same direction with a velocity of 20 ms -1 . After the collision, both the vehicles attach together and move with a speed of velocity v. Find the value of v.

Answer:

(IMPORTANT: When 2 object attach together, they move with same speed.)

m1 = 8000kg m2 = 1500kg u1 = 30 ms -1

u2 = 20 ms -1 v1 = v v2 = v

According to the principle of conservation of momentum,

m1u1 + m2u2 = m1v1 + m2v2 (8,000)(30) + (1,500)(20) = (8,000)v+ (1,500)v 270,000 = 9500v v = 28.42 ms -1

Summary of Newton's 1st Law and 2nd Law

Newton's First Law:

When there is no net force acting on an object, the object is either stationary or move with constant speed in a straight line.

Newton's Second Law:

When there is a net force acting on an object, the object will accelerate.

Example 1

A box of mass 150kg is placed on a horizontal floor with a smooth surface; find the acceleration of the box when a 300N force is acting on the box horizontally.

Answer:

F = ma (300) = (150)a a = 2 ms -2

Example 2

A object of mass 50kg is placed on a horizontal floor with a smooth surface. If the velocity of the object changes from stationary to 25.0 m/s in 5 seconds when is acted by a force, find the magnitude of the force that is acting?

Answer:

We know that we can find the magnitude of a force by using the formula F = ma. The mass m is already given in the question, but the acceleration is not give directly.

We can determine the acceleration from the formula

From the formula F = ma = (50)(5) = 250N

The force acting on the box is 250N.

Answer:

Impulse = F × t = (200) × (15) = 300oNs

Impulse = mv - mu (3000) = 600v - 600(30) 600v = 3000 + 18000 v = 21000/600 = 35 m/s
