When you hold your hands together you will feel the normal reaction between them. When you slide them against each other you will feel the friction. Etched glass magnified to high resolution, showing the tiny bumps. When the friction between two surfaces is negligible, at least one of the surfaces is said to be smooth. This is a modelling assumption which you will meet frequently in this book. Oil can make surfaces smooth and ice is often modelled as a smooth surface. 41 42 AN INTRODUCTION TO MATHEMATICS FOR ENGINEERS: MECHANICS When the contact between two surfaces is smooth, the only force between them is at right angles to any possible sliding and is just the normal reaction.

4: Forces acting on the parachute FORCES AND NEWTON’S LAWS OF MOTION Centre of mass and the particle model When you combine forces you are finding their resultant. The weights of the crate and parachute are also found by combining forces; they are the resultant of the weights of all their separate parts. Each weight acts through a point called the centre of mass or centre of gravity. Think about balancing a pen on your finger. The diagrams show the forces acting on the pen. 5, it will balance. There is a force called a reaction between your finger and the pen which balances the weight of the pen.

Any force diagram should show clearly ● ● ● the direction of the force the magnitude of the force the line of action. 2 each force is shown by an arrow along its line of action. The air resistance has been depicted by a lot of separate arrows but this is not very satisfactory. It is much better if the combined effect can be shown by one arrow. When you have learned more about vectors, you will see how the tensions in the guy lines can also be combined into one force if you wish. The forces on the crate and parachute can then be simplified.
