Kinematics

The study of how objects move

Where are You?

question

Position

Reference Point:

Zero location in a coordinate
system or frame.

Frame of Reference:

Coordinate system used to define
motion.

Position:

Separation between an object and a
reference point. It needs a distance and direction.

i.e. 3.0 meters to the right.

To find where you are you need the following:

Distance vs. Displacement

Distance is simply the total path length
traversed in moving from one location
to another

Distance is a SCALAR quantity. A measurement
with only magnitude, or size.

50 m

Distance vs. Displacement

Displacement is the straight
-
line distance between
two points, along with the direction from the
starting point to the final position.

Displacement is a VECTOR quantity. A
measurement with magnitude, or size and
a direction

10 m East

Difference between
Distance and
Displacement

Walking to
Physics Lab

Distance = 8 m

Displacement = 8m right

Speed is the rate at which distance is traveled.

Average speed

is the distance
d

traveled, the actual path, divided
by the total time
t

elapsed in traveling that distance.

A jogger jogs from one end to the other of a straight 300 meter track
(from point A to point B) in 2.50 min and then turns around and
jogs 100 m back toward the starting point (to point C) in another
1.00 min. What are the jogger’s average speeds and velocities in
going

A)

From A to B

B) From A to C after turning around

at Motion

Acceleration

Position is the separation between an object
and a reference point.

Displacement is a change in position

Velocity is the time rate change of displacement

Acceleration is the time rate change of velocity

All four are vector quantities

Problem:

Ally the Alligator takes off from an airfield.
She starts from rest and obtains a velocity of
36 m/s at take off in 20.0 seconds.

What is her acceleration down the runway?

How far did she go down the runway?
