Kinematics is the study of the motion of objects without regard

to the forces that produce the motion.

There are six important formulas used in kinematics, four are

defined and two are derived (from the defined ones).

Using the following six formulas, all the problems in

kinematics can be solved:

Defined

s

= distance

v

= velocity

i

= initial velocity

v
f

= final velocity

v
a
= average velocity

t = time

a = acceleration

Remember

When calculating the average velocity

of an entire trip, use the total time of

the trip, even the time while not moving.

June dropped a stone and measured the time it took to fall

a certain distance. After collecting her data, she plotted the

acceleration versus the time of the falling stone.

Which of the following graphs represents this situation?

REMEMBER

Falling objects have a constant acceleration.

Jack and Jill ride their bikes in an empty parking lot. The graph below

represents the paths of the two cyclists
during a 10 second period.

Which of the following statements is
false
?

A)

At time t = 0, Jill is two meters ahead of Jack.

B)

Jill's speed is always zero.

C)

Between the times t=0 and t=6 s, Jack has a constant speed.

D)

At time t = 8 s, Jack and Jill have the same speed.

E)

At time t = 2 s, Jack and Jill have the same speed.

Note that the slope

represents speed.

Speed = 0

At t = 2 s, Jack’s speed is 1 m/s

but Jill’s speed is 0.
