1 Kinematics in 2-D

2 Review - What is Kinematics??? Describes the motion of objects Uses a set of equations Draws a relationship between time, distance, velocity, and acceleration

3 We Started in 1-D One dimensional motion (1-D) – Motion only in one plane (either in the x-direction or the y-direction) – Motion in a straight line

4 Now Lets Do it in 2-D Two Dimensional Motion – Instead of motion in either the x-direction or the y-direction, we have motion in both the x- direction and the y-direction – The motion is no longer in a straight line; it is parabolic

6 The Projectile Any object that travels through the air in which the only force acting on it is gravity

7 What are some example of projectiles?

8 And another…

9 Some Important Things to Know Projectiles travel in 2 dimensions, in the x- direction AND in the y-direction The ONLY force acting on a projectile is gravity The motion in the x-direction is COMPLETELY INDEPENDENT of the motion in the y- direction…lets take a look

14 One More Look at Some Projectiles

15 Sign Conventions Positive directions (+d) – Right – Up Negative directions (-d) – Left – Down Now it is important as ever!!!

16 The Good News… The same equations from 1-D kinematics apply in 2-D

17 Solving Problems 1.Draw a picture of the problem 2.Define your sign convention 1.It is your decision, but use one that is convenient 2.Typically, up is positive and right is positive 3.Separate the x-components and the y- components so you can solve them separately 4.Use the GUESS method

18 Remember g? Earlier, we said g for the surface of the Earth equals 9.81 m/s 2 We were not taking into consideration the direction in which g works What do you think g is?

19 Crazy Important… The motion in the x-direction is COMPLETELY INDEPENDENT of the motion in the y-direction There is one link between the x-direction and the y-direction, and it is t

20 Lingo and Such Terms Projectile Trajectory Range Altitude Hang time Variables/Constants V i,x or V 0,x V i,y or V 0,y V f,x V f,y t d or h g

21 Example Problem An airplane is flying with a constant velocity of 115 m/s. It drops a package from an altitude of 1050 m. If we ignore air resistance, how far down range will the object be when it hits the ground?

22 Step 1: Draw a Picture

24 An airplane is flying with a constant velocity of 115 m/s. It drops a package from an altitude of 1050 m. If we ignore air resistance, how far down range will the object be when it hits the ground? Step 1: Draw a Picture Step 2: Define a Sign Convention

26 An airplane is flying with a constant velocity of 115 m/s. It drops a package from an altitude of 1050 m. If we ignore air resistance, how far down range will the object be when it hits the ground? Step 1: Draw a Picture Step 2: Define a Sign Convention Step 3: Pick the direction you want to start in and solve!

27 Lets Start in the Y Direction An airplane is flying with a constant velocity of 115 m/s. It drops a package from an altitude of 1050 m. If we ignore air resistance, how far down range will the object be when it hits the ground? Given: d = m g = -9.8 m/s 2 Unknown: t = ? Equation:

28 Lets Start in the Y Direction An airplane is flying with a constant velocity of 115 m/s. It drops a package from an altitude of 1050 m. If we ignore air resistance, how far down range will the object be when it hits the ground? Substitute: Solve:

30 Now Lets Solve the X-Direction An airplane is flying with a constant velocity of 115 m/s. It drops a package from an altitude of 1050 m. If we ignore air resistance, how far down range will the object be when it hits the ground? Given: v i,x = +115 m/s t = 14.6 sec Unknown: d x = ? Equation:

31 Now Lets Solve the X-Direction An airplane is flying with a constant velocity of 115 m/s. It drops a package from an altitude of 1050 m. If we ignore air resistance, how far down range will the object be when it hits the ground? Substitute: Solve:

32 1679 meters

33 Practice #1 A car drives off a cliff that is 50 m high. When it lands, investigators measure that the car is 85 m away from the base of the cliff. Calculate the following: (1)the time the car was in the air. (2)the horizontal velocity of the car when it drove off the cliff?

34 Practice #2 You throw a ball straight up with an initial vertical velocity of 22 m/s. Calculate the following: (1)the time the ball is in the air. (2)how high the ball goes.
