Motion in One Dimension
Topics:
Sample question:
Horses can run much
much
faster than humans, but if the length
of the course is right, a human can beat a horse in a race. When,
and why, can a man outrun a horse?

From this class:
•
In Chapter 1 you began studying motion in one dimension. We
continue the development of the concepts in this chapter.
•
In Chapter 1 you saw how to represent motion using a motion
diagram. In this chapter we will look at other ways to represent
motion.
From previous classes:
•
We will use graphical representations of motion extensively in
this chapter. You should have learned how to draw, interpret,
and work with graphs in previous courses.

Answer
Examples
A soccer player is 15 m from her opponent’s goal. She kicks the
ball hard; after 0.50 s, it flies past a defender who stands 5 m
away, and continues toward the goal. How much time does the
goalie have to move into position to block the kick from the
moment the ball leaves the kicker’s foot?
Cleveland and Chicago are 340 miles apart by train. Train A
leaves Cleveland going west to Chicago at 1:00 PM, traveling at
60 mph. Train B leaves Chicago going east to Cleveland at 2:00
PM, going 45 mph. At what time do the two trains meet? How far
are they from Chicago at this time?
