what?

Kinematics

the branch of
_________

which
describes the motion of an object without
explicit reference to the ______ that act on the
object.

Mechanics

the branch of Physics that deals
with the ______ of objects and the ______ that
change it.

One Dimension

dealing only with ________
motion.

mechanics

forces

motion

forces

linear

Familiar terms?

Can you define the following? Take a minute
same groups for the poster, votefor the

best

choice. DO NOT look in in your book!

Displacement

Velocity

Acceleration

Alright, let

s share…

So what do they really mean?

SP1. a1Determine the difference between
distnace and displacement

SP1.a2 Identify the displacement, time and
velocity [s, t, v]

Displacement

(s) is similar to distance. It is, in
general, the change in position of an object.

How far

.

Distance

is the total amount from the beginning
of travel

Displacement

is always measured from the
origin to the current position.

Student walking around demo!!

So what do they really mean?

SP1.a4 Describe the difference between speed
and velocity [speed, v
avg
]

Velocity

(v
avg
) is similar to _________ (again,
difference later). It is defined as the change in
displacement divided by time.

How Fast

Speed does not care about direction

Velocity changes as direction changes

Can you write the equation?

speed

So what do they really mean?

SP1.a3 Calculate the velocity of an object.
[v=s/t]

That equation would be

This is called a definition equation. You will
use it to derive other equations in this course.

Do you see what the units would be?

v

s

t
So what do they really mean?

SP1.a6 Calculate the acceleration of an object.

Acceleration

(a) is the change in ________ of
an object divided by the time interval.

You must do one of 3 things:

Increase velocity

Decrease velocity

Change direction

If there is no speed change or direction change,
there is NO ACCELERATION.

Can you write the equation?

velocity

So what do they really mean?

Did you get

Again, another definition equation.

Special Note: Very rarely does time NOT
begin at zero. Therefore, it is very common to
write these equations without the
Δ

symbol by
time.

Looking deeper at Displacement

Can you answer the following questions?

1.
A student walks 15 m from the commons,
stops at her locker, then continues 20 m to
her classroom. What is her displacement?

2.
Another student walks 30 m from the
commons before realizing he meant to stop at
his locker. He returns 10 m to his locker,
then turns back toward his class, 20 m from
his locker. What is his displacement?

35 m

40 m

Looking Deeper at Displacement

SP1.b1 Describe and identiy scalar and vector
quantities

So what makes the difference between 60 m or
40 m for question #2?

The difference is that 60 m is the
distance

the
student travels (a ______ qty), but 40 m is the
displacement

(a ______ qty).

Vectors take into account the direction of
motion. In #2 there was a change of direction.
Mathematically, this is a change in sign for the
number. So… 30 m + (
-
10 m) + 20 m

scalar

vector

Looking Deeper at Velocity

Okay, explanation first this time.
Speed is the
scalar qty for velocity. So, speed is magnitude
only (just a number). Velocity is magnitude
and

direction.

Two other terms to note:

___________ Velocity = v right now

_______ Velocity = overall v: (v = (v
f

+ v
i
)/2)

Remember, a + or

count as direction. You
do not have to say north, south, toward, away,
etc., but you may see them in a question.

Instantaneous

Average

Looking Deeper at Velocity

Alright, try these two questions on for size:

1.
A driver traveling north on I
-
85 notes that it
takes 2 minutes to get from exit 99 to exit
101, a distance of 3168 m. What is the
drivers speed in m/s? What is her velocity?

2.
A student walks his girlfriend to 1
st

period, a
distance of 40 m from the cafeteria. He turns
back toward the cafeteria to his class, 15 m
away. This takes 5 minutes. What is his
speed? His velocity?

Speed = 26.4 m/s

Velocity = 26.4 m/s

s = 0.18 m/s;
v=0.083 m/s

Looking Deeper at Acceleration

Constant acceleration
-

an object will change its
velocity by the
same

amount each second.

THIS IS NOT CONSTNAT VELOCITY!!!

Non
-
constant acceleration
-

an object will change
its velocity by
different

amounts each second.

Which one is constant? Non
-
constant?

Looking Deeper at Acceleration

Since accelerating objects are constantly changing
their velocity, one can say that the distance
traveled/time is not a constant value.

Lets make 3 quick graphs!

traveled

Looking Deeper at Acceleration

Well, you may be relieved to know that
acceleration is a vector qty with no scalar
counterpart.

So where is the direction?

The direction of the acceleration vector
depends on two things:

whether the object is speeding up or slowing down

whether the object is moving in the + or
-

direction

Looking Deeper at Acceleration

A
positive acceleration
occurs, when an
object is speeding up. Acceleration is in the
same direction as the velocity.

A
negative acceleration
occurs, when an
object is slowing down. Acceleration is in
the
opposite
direction as the velocity.

Looking Deeper at Acceleration

The general RULE OF THUMB is:

If an object is slowing down, then its

acceleration is in the opposite direction of

its motion.

*See demo*

Looking Deeper at Acceleration

Which table shows positive acceleration?
negative acceleration?

A is positive, B is negative.

Practice…

So… a car traveling at 10 m/s in a straight line
speeds up to 30 m/s in 5.0 s. What is the
average acceleration?

What are we given?

What are we looking for?

a = 4.0 m/s

Practice…

A shuttle bus slows down with an average
acceleration of

1.8m/s
2
. How long does it take
the bus to slow from 9.0 m/s to a complete stop?

What are we given?

What are we looking for?

Practice…

Practice makes perfect!!!

Represented as graphs

We

ll get to that later….

Graphing Motion

Three types of Graphs: D

T, A

What does slope of each represent?

This covers all the

concept

, how

s your
math skill holding up?

Position vs Time Graphs

Position goes on the vertical axis

Time is on the horizontal axis

Position vs Time Graphs

What is the position at time 4s? What about 8s?

What is the
the

avg

velocity? (think back one

slide.)

1 m/s

Position vs Time Graphs

Let

s consider this car.

The graph would look like this:

It would have a constant, rightward (+) velocity

Position vs Time Graphs

Now, let

s consider this other car.

It would have a changing rightward (+) velocity

The graph would look like this:

Position vs Time Graphs

The shapes of the position versus time graphs reveal
reveals useful information about the velocity of the
object.

It is often said, "As the slope goes, so goes the
velocity."

Whatever characteristics the velocity has, the slope
will exhibit the same (and vice versa).

Position vs Time Graphs

What can you tell me about each objects
velocity?

Object 1 has a constant

positive velocity.

Object 2 has no velocity.

Object 3 has a constant

negative velocity.

Position vs Time Graphs

Instantaneous velocity

point in time

Can be found by the tangent of a curve.

What do these graphs tell you about the
velocity?

How would you make this positive?

Practice

The following graph represents the motion of a
car. What can you tell me about the car

s
motion based on the graph?

The car has a rightward velocity. The car has a
changing velocity. The car is moving from
slow to fast since the slope changes from small
big.

Free Fall!!!!

(show video)

Free Fall!!!!

Free Fall

I
s when an object is falling under the sole
influence of gravity

Two important facts:

Free falling objects do
not

encounter air
resistance (in this class)

Free fall is a downward acceleration toward
earth (the sign gets tricky)

Free Fall

formally known as

acceleration of
gravity

= g

g = 9.81m/s
2

Often times estimated at 10m/s
2

or 9.8m/s
2

There are slight variations that are affected
by altitude, we will ignore this.

Free Fall

g is independent of 3 things:

time it

s been falling

mass of the object

if it started at rest or not

A deeper look

Think of it this way:

Δv = 9.8 m/s

Δt = 1s

This means every 1s the velocity
increases 9.8m/s

A deeper look

Think of it this way:

So how fast would you be going 3
seconds after jumping out an airplane?

force of air resistance is equal and
opposite to the force of gravity.
