Physics ch10

Pressure, Gravity and Moments

Density The density of a substance is its mass per unit volume. D= M/V
Unit of Density Kg m-3 kilograms per cubic metre
Pressure Pressure is the force per unit area. P= F/A
Unit of pressure Pascal or 1 Newton per square metre
Archimedes Principle When an object is partially or completely immersed in a fluid it experiences an upthrus t equal in magnitude to the weight of the fluid displaced.
The law of flotation The weight of a floating body is equal to the weight of the fluid it displaces.
Boyle's Law At a constant temperature the volume of a fixed mass of gas is inversely proportional to its pressure.
Newton's law of Universal Gravitation Any two point masses in the universe attract each other with a force that is directly proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them. F= Gm1m2/d2
Moment of a force The moment of a force about an axis is equal to the magnitude of the force multiplied by the perpendicular distance from the axis to the line of action of the force. M= F x d
Unit of moment Nm Newton metre
If a body is in equilibrium: The vector sum of the forces in any direction is 0. The sum of the moments about any point is 0
Couple Two parallel forces with the same magnitude acting in opposite directions.
Moment of a couple (torque) T = Fd

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
