PHYS 1500 Chapter 3

equilibrium experiencing zero net force
equilibrium position natural position of a spring when it's not being compressed
stable equilibrium state of the spring after it has been compressed
restoring force causes a spring to return to its equilibrium length once no more force is being exerted on it.
hooke's law restoring force= -spring constant * distortion F=-kx
elastic limit how far a spring or an object can stretch before becoming permanently damaged.
elastic potential energy energy stored in a spring when compressed
calibration comparing a local device to a generally accepted standard
center of percussion point on a baseball bat that does not experience acceleration
vibrational node part of the bat that does not vibrate when it strikes the ball
elastic collisions theoretical collision in which all collision energy is returned as rebound energy
inelastic collisions some collision energy fails to become rebound energy
uniform circular motion an object has the urge to move in a straight line but in pulled into circular motion
centripetal acceleration acceleration toward the center of a circle
centripetal force force that pushes an object toward the center of a circle
feeling of acceleration feeling that the body is moving in the opposite direction of acceleration
apparent weight the feeling of weight changes during acceleration
a= v^2/r or w^2*r
