Newton’s Laws
What is the law of inertia?
A body will maintain a state of rest or
constant velocity unless acted
on by an external force that
changes the state.

Newton’s Laws
For example, a skater has a tendency to continue gliding
with constant speed and direction because of inertia.

Newton’s Laws
What is the law of acceleration?
A force applied to a body causes
acceleration of that body
• of a magnitude proportional to the
force
• in the direction of the force
• and inversely proportional to the
body’s mass
F = ma

Newton’s Laws
What is the law of reaction?
• For every action, there is an equal
and opposite reaction.
• When one body exerts a force on a
second, the second body exerts a
reaction force that is equal in
magnitude and opposite in
direction on the first body.

In accordance with the
law of reaction, the weight
of a box sitting on a table
generates a reaction force
by the table that is equal
in magnitude and
opposite in direction to the
weight.

Typical ground reaction force patterns for rearfoot-strikers and
others. Runners may be classified as rearfoot-, midfoot-, or
forefoot-strikers according to the portion of the shoe that usually
contacts the ground first.

The vertical ground reaction force (GRFv) for a classic countermovement vertical
jump illustrates peak force during the propulsive/pushoff phase (~1.4s) and
peak force during the landing phase (~2.0s). The horizontal dashed line
represents the magnitude of one body weight (~725N). The shaded area
represents the impulse generated against the floor during takeoff. Graph

Mechanical Behavior of Bodies in
Contact
What is friction?
A force acting over the area of contact
between two surfaces
• Direction is opposite of motion or
motion tendency
• Magnitude is the product of the
coefficient of friction () and the
normal reaction force (R)
F = R

For static (motionless)
bodies, friction is
equal to the applied
force. For dynamic
bodies (in motion),
friction is constant
and less than
maximum static
friction.

The coefficient of
friction between a
dancer’s shoes and the
floor must be small
enough to allow
freedom of motion but
large enough to
prevent slippage.

Mechanical Behavior of Bodies in
Contact
What is momentum?
• Quantity of motion possessed by a
body
• Measured as the product of a body’s
mass and its velocity;
M = mv

What is the principle of conservation of
momentum?
In the absence of external forces, the
total momentum of a given system
remains constant.
M1 = M2
(mv)1 = (mv)2

acts

What is impact?
A collision characterized by:
• The exchange of a large force
during a small time interval

What happens following an impact?
This depends on:
• The momentum present in the system
• The nature of the impact

What happens during impact?
This is described by the coefficient of
restitution, a number that serves
as an index of elasticity for
colliding bodies; represented as
e.

In a “break” in billiards, the cue ball is struck to impart high
velocity since the numbered balls are motionless, the idea
being to disperse the numbered balls.

What kinds of impact are there?
• Perfectly elastic impact - in which the
velocity of the system is conserved;
(e = 1)(superball bounce is close…)
• Perfectly plastic impact - in which there
is a total loss of system velocity;
(e = 0)(spaghetti hits a wall)
• (Most impacts fall in between perfectly
elastic and perfectly plastic.)
