How Rockets Work Newton s Laws of Motion

How Rockets Work Newton s Laws of Motion

complicated process. Newton’s laws are the beginning, but many other things come into play. For example, air pressure plays an important role while the rocket is still in the atmosphere. The internal pressure produced by burning rocket propellants inside the rocket engine combustion chamber has to be greater than the outside pressure to escape through the engine nozzle. In a sense, the outside air is like a cork in the engine. It takes some of the pressure generated inside the engine just to exceed the ambient outside pressure. Consequently, the velocity of combustion products passing through the opening or throat of the nozzle is reduced. The good news is that as the rocket climbs into space, the ambient pressure becomes less and less as the atmosphere thins and the engine thrust increases.

Kepler s Laws, Newton s Laws, and the Search for New Planets

Kepler s Laws, Newton s Laws, and the Search for New Planets

The flaw in this argument is that in order to use the expression r ( t ) for the acceler- ation, we must be using an inertial frame for our coordinate system. For example, if the sun happened to be accelerating at exactly the same rate as the earth at a given instant, then the acceleration of the displacement vector r ( t ) would be zero, even though the force was unchanged. So the implicit assumption being made is that the sun is fixed. One could of course point out that assumption explicitly, together with a remark that it is close enough to being true that the resulting conclusions are very close to being cor- rect. However, one can give a cogent argument that shows clearly why we may assume the sun to be fixed, and also has the advantages mentioned in our introduction—all the hard work is already done in proving the three properties P1–P3 for solutions of equation (1).

Newton and Spinoza: On Motion and Matter (and God, of Course)

Newton and Spinoza: On Motion and Matter (and God, of Course)

Investigation of the Laws of Thought, George Boole rationally reconstructed the Spinoza-Clarke exchange in order to showcase the utility and significance of his new symbolic language. Boole had no doubt that "The analysis of its [Spinoza's Ethics'--ES] main argument is extremely difficult, owing not to the complexity of the separate propositions which it involves, but to the use of vague definitions, and of axioms which, through a like defect of clearness, it is perplexing to determine whether we ought to accept or to reject. While the reasoning of Dr. Samuel Clarke is in part verbal, that of Spinoza is so in a much greater degree; and perhaps this is the reason why, to some minds, it has appeared to possess a formal cogency, to which in reality it possesses no just claim." (Boole, 145) This is not the place to evaluate Boole’s judgment or its reflection in Maxwell’s treatment of the relative merits of Newton and Spinoza (Maxwell, 18). I just note that one influential reader of Boole, Russell, praises Spinoza’s moral vision, but explicitly discounts the argumentative value of Spinoza’s works in the context of his attacks on the British Idealists and Bergson (Russell, 64). But the details of these stories must be told elsewhere.. 32

systems. Second, one might point out that this intuition is bound up with a mischaracterisation of the relation between dynamical laws and coordinate systems, namely the idea that Newton’s laws only ‘hold’ in special coordinate systems. This idea can be found in the work of various authors (e.g., Einstein, 1951, p. 27; van Fraassen, 1985, p. 116; Cushing, 1998, p. 98), and there are passages in which Brown appears to be making such a claim: ‘Inertial coordinate systems are those special coordinate systems relative to which the above conspiracy, involving rectilinear uniform motions, unfolds.’ (Brown, 2005, p. 15) To put this another way, a class of special coordinate systems is being postulated in which the laws of motion—the laws that determine the alleged conspiracy—hold. But this is to put the cart before the horse. Newton’s laws do not hold in special coordinate systems—they assert the possibility of coordinate systems in which all accelerations depend on impressed forces. The possibility of such systems is asserted by Newton’s laws; those systems are not prerequisites for the laws of motion. 17

observer lets go of it. If the object remains in the same location relative to the observer then an IRF is present, otherwise a NIRF is present. This test simply makes use of the “An object will remain at rest unless acted upon by an external force” part of the first law. The rest of the first law could be included in the LGT to see whether an object in motion will remain moving at a constant velocity but this is not necessary because when you come right down to it the question is whether the object will be observed to accelerate or not in the absence of an external force – whether the object accelerates from a state of rest or from some established velocity does not matter. The first law is often said to be a special case of the second law and this test is simply a distillation of the combined basic content of the first and second law into an easily performed

Teacher resources in kinematics : a project for the Physics Olympiads

Teacher resources in kinematics : a project for the Physics Olympiads

The website comPADRE (2007) gives an example of a demonstration in kinematics where students predict which toy car will win a race. This, they say, allows student to learn about time, position and speed. The objects have a constant speed, and the class agrees on this fact to start with. Then, before performing any demonstrations, the teacher asks the students to work out which car will win the race. The students discuss what they would need to know or measure in order to answer the question. It is up to the teacher whether to provide the speeds and distance to students, or whether to let them measure it themselves, and express their confidence in their measurements. The students discuss their ideas and find out different ideas from the class on how to make the measurements. Alternatives to a simple race is for the class to work out how much of a head start (or handicap) one car needs so they finish at the same time, or to work out where the cars would collide if they were moving towards each other.

established a scientific correlation between these move- ments when they occur simultaneously. Neither did we have knowledge of any type of joined analysis which de- termines possible inferences of one phenomenon on the others. Intuitively an aporia could be proposed stating that between the movements of orbit and rotation a phy- sical correlation could exist which mathematical expres- sion had not been revealed so far and as such the present- ly accepted laws of the behaviour of rotating bodies in space would turn out insufficient to exactly describe the real physical reality of rotating bodies.

Using Interactive Demonstrations at Slovak Secondary Schools

Using Interactive Demonstrations at Slovak Secondary Schools

There is an educational reform running in Slovakia from 2008. In science education it emphasizes active independent learning of students based on inquiry teaching and learning strategies. The main emphasize has shifted from the mainly content-based learning towards the development of inquiry skills and 21st century skills connected with critical and creative thinking. In order to create active learning environment in the classroom there can be different methods used. One of the strategies developed in order to fulfill this goal is interactive lecture demonstrations ILD (Thornton, Sokoloff, 2004, 1997). It combines traditional lecture-based lesson with active-learning computer-based laboratory tools with one computer in the class. Teacher carries out simple short experiments enhanced by digital technologies while students using predictions and discussions with classmates and teachers are led through a series of tasks to understanding the physical concepts and phenomena in order to draw reasonable conclusions. The ILD method has been adapted and implemented in a grammar school in Slovakia for several school years (2008 - 2014). The unit of mechanics has been taught with the support of a series of interactive demonstrations concerning motion and concepts of position, velocity, acceleration, force, energy and laws of motion. The results of students´ predictions as well as the results achieved at the end of the unit were monitored in order to compare the experimental class (using ILD) and the other class (using traditional approach). Assessments of the gained results have indicated that student understanding of concepts has improved in most cases compared to students of traditional class. Analysis of their predictions revealed some problematic areas of their conceptual understanding. Nevertheless, this method forces them to be actively involved in the process of thinking and reasoning, students are led to mutual discussion, but also listening to their peers and cooperation within the group. It gives students the possibility not only to learn, but above all to think and explore actively and independently and so better understand the physical phenomena and the process of inquiry.

WORKER REPRESENTATION AND PARTICIPATION GUIDE

WORKER REPRESENTATION AND PARTICIPATION GUIDE

A HSR can only direct that work cease if the HSR has completed an approved HSR training course, or previously completed that training when acting as a HSR of another work group. A HSR may direct a worker in a work group represented by the representative to cease work if the representative has a reasonable concern that to carry out the work would expose the worker to a serious risk, emanating from an immediate or imminent exposure to a hazard. Before issuing the direction, the HSR must first attempt to resolve the matter by consulting the PCBU whom the workers are working for, unless the risk is so serious and immediate or imminent that there is no time to consult before giving the direction. In these situations the HSR must carry out the consultation as soon as practicable after giving the direction to cease work.

From an Entropic Measure of Time to Laws of Motion

From an Entropic Measure of Time to Laws of Motion

2. Theories as a whole (basic concepts and laws/principles as well as assumptions and idealizations) adapt to experimental data. In the case of mechanics this led to assertions, for example, that if all coordinates and velocities are specified, it allows fully determining the state of a mechanic system and predicting its motion, or for instance, that gravitational force is inversely proportional specifically to the square of the distance between bodies [1]. All three parts of a theory (basic concepts, laws, and models) effectively have one origin and validation tool: experiment. In the light of the above, dividing a theory into three parts is in many respects a very approximate procedure. In essence, these parts are identical, they form a single interrelated system that evolves historically, following the diagram in Fig.1a, to generally describe some natural phenomenon. Due to the absence of strong logical connections between the parts of a theory, its iterative adaptations to experimental data enable to change any of its elements rather freely (a typical example here is the well-known “transformation” of classical mechanics in quantum or relativistic cases when problems with experimental results were found). Such an optimization is accompanied by an unlimited number of degrees of freedom. As a result, such theories can no longer be trusted as unique and fundamental. In spite of the made conclusion, the history of science shows that basic concepts and laws (principles) are often assigned meanings that essentially go beyond their original tentative theories and regarded universal. For example, the laws of classical thermodynamics are applied to cosmology. Obviously, given the origin of a tentative theory, such an “extrapolation” can prove to be either very bold and fruitful or risky and erroneous.

After all, when you pour containers of 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 gallons (in the order listed) into intermediate containers and then into a single barrel, the barrel will contain 25 gallons, regardless of which intermediate containers you used. Similarly, no matter how you insert parentheses in the expression 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7, you will get the same answer. For example, check that (3 + 4) + (5 + (6 + 7)) = 3 + (((4 + (5 + 6)) + 7)).

HOW OUR LAWS ARE MADE

HOW OUR LAWS ARE MADE

A measure or matter reported by a committee (except the Com- mittee on Rules in the case of a resolution providing a rule, joint rule, or order of business) may not be considered in the House until the third calendar day (excluding Saturdays, Sundays, and legal holidays unless the House is in session on those days) on which the report of that committee on that measure has been available to the Members of the House. This rule is subject to certain exceptions in- cluding resolutions providing for certain privileged matters and measures declaring war or other national emergency. A report of the Committee on Rules on a rule, joint rule, or order of business must lay over for one legislative day prior to consideration. How- ever, it is in order to consider a report from the Committee on Rules on the same day it is reported that proposes only to waive the availability requirement. If hearings were held on a measure or matter so reported, the committee is required to make every rea- sonable effort to have those hearings printed and available for dis- tribution to the Members of the House prior to the consideration of the measure in the House. Committees are also required, to the maximum extent feasible, to make their publications available in electronic form. A general appropriation bill reported by the Com- mittee on Appropriations may not be considered until printed tran- scripts of committee hearings and a committee report thereon have been available to the Members of the House for at least three cal- endar days (excluding Saturdays, Sundays, and legal holidays un- less the House is in session on those days).

Kronecker?s and Newton?s approaches to solving : A first comparison

Kronecker?s and Newton?s approaches to solving : A first comparison

A first relevant task consists in stating conditions which are sufficient for verifying the property of being an approximate zero. This is achieved by means of a local condition based on a quantity (called γ), which is essentially yielded by the Lipschitz constant appearing in the inverse mapping Theorem (cf. [Dem89], Ch. 1, for instance). These ideas were introduced by S. Smale in the early eighties (cf. [Sma81]) and deeply developed in the series of papers written by M. Shub and S. Smale [SS85] to [SS94b]) (more detailed references are given in Section 3.2 below).
