3. Gravitational Force

North Carolina Standards:

 PSc.1.2.1 - Explain how gravitational force affects the weight of an object and the velocity of an object in freefall.

Objectives - Recognize that the weight of an object is a measure of the force of gravity and is the product of its mass and the acceleration due to gravity: Fg = mg

* With negligible air resistance, explain acceleration due to gravity as an example of uniformly changing velocity: g = 9.8 m/s2 

* Relate the presence of air resistance to the concept of terminal velocity of an object in free fall.

5. Work and Power

North Carolina Standards:

PSc.3.1 Understand types of energy, conservation of energy and energy transfer.

PSc.3.1.3 Explain work in terms of the relationship among the applied force to an object, the resulting displacement of the object, and the energy transferred to an object.

Objectives: Explain scenarios in which work is done, identifying the force, displacement, and energy transfer- work requires energy; when work is done on an object, the result is an increase in its energy and is accompanied by a decrease in energy somewhere else.

Compare scenarios in which work is done and conceptually explain the differences in magnitude of work done using the relationship W = F x d .

PSc.3.1.4 Explain the relationship among work, power and simple machines both qualitatively and quantitatively.

Infer the work and power relationship: P = W/^t

Determine the component simple machines present in complex machines – categorize a wedge and screw as variations of an inclined plane; a pulley and wheel & axle as variations of a lever.

 Explain the relationship between work input and work output for simple machines using the law of conservation of energy.

 Define and determine ideal and actual mechanical advantage: 

 Define and determine efficiency of machines:

  Explain why no machine can be 100% efficient.
