Physics is the study of our nature and surroundings with mathematics as a supporting tool to understand the concepts.I usually teach university level physics..As a part of discussion,lets discuss one such concept Newton,s Law of motion through a question.
Let's solve a question before we start our discussion..
Q. A vehicle carries a 5.0-kg box of oranges in its bed. The coefficient of static friction between box and vehicle bed is 0.31
Calculate the maximum acceleration for the vehicle on a level road if the box isn't to slide?
We have :
- The mass of the box is,m= 5.0 kg
- The coefficient of static friction between the box floor interface is: μ= 0.31
We have to understand the condition that the box should not slide and that the friction force on the material will act in forward direction. So the only force that is going to act backward on the box is its own inertial force or pseudo force. The magnitude of this force will be equal to the friction force acting forward.
Using the expression to calculate the acceleration of vehicle
Substitute the value in the above expression (i).
a= (0.31×5 kg×9.81m/s2)/5 kg
Thus, the maximum value of acceleration that the truck can achieve with making the box slide is: 3.0411 m/s2
Hence we see how the mathematical equation can be used to understand a particular concept.
