Learning Objectives for Unit 1: Kinematics


Chapter 2
:

Motion in one dimension

1)

You should understand the general relationships among position, velocity, and acceleration for the motion of a
particle along a straight line so that:

(a)

Given a graph of one of the kinematic quantities, position, velocity, or acceler
ation, as a function of time,
you can recognize in what time intervals the other two are positive, negative, or zero, and can identify or
sketch a graph of each as a function of time.

2)

You should understand the special case of motion with constant accelerat
ion so you can:

(a)

Write down expressions for velocity and position as functions of time, and identify or sketch graphs of
these quantities.

(b)

Use the equations
v

=
v

) to solve problems involving one

nal motion with constant acceleration.


Chapters 3 and 4: Vectors and Motion in two dimensions

1)

You should be able to add, subtract, and resolve displacement and velocity vectors, so you can:

(a)

Determine components of a vector along two specified, mutually pe
rpendicular axes.

(b)

Determine the net displacement of a particle or the location of a particle relative to another.

(c)

Determine the change in velocity of a particle or the velocity of one particle relative to another.

2)

You should understand the motion of projec
tiles in a uniform gravitational field so you can:

(a)

Write down expressions for the horizontal and vertical components of velocity and position as functions of
time, and sketch or identify graphs of these components.

(b)

Use these expressions in analyzing the mo
tion of a projectile that is projected with an arbitrary initial
velocity
