Change in time- ending time minus initial time t = t f - t i Change in velocity- final velocity minus initial velocity v = v f - v i Average acceleration- change in velocity between two distinct time intervals ā = v/ t = (v f - v i )/(t f - t i )(m/s 2 ) Instantaneous acceleration- change in velocity at an instant in time Only found by determining the tangent of a curve on a velocity-time graph

3
Shows an object slowing down, speeding up, without motion, or at constant motion

4
Represents motion graphically Plots the velocity versus the time of the object

5
Sometimes we have an initial velocity Like when we pull through a stop light as it turns green Our acceleration formula can be rearranged v= ā t v f - v i = ā t If we are looking for the final velocity, then we multiply the acceleration by the time and add the initial velocity v f = ā t + v i

6
A bus that is traveling at 30.0km/h speeds up at a constant rate of 3.5m/s 2. What velocity does it reach 6.8s later? Convert all to terms of m and s: (30.0km/h)(1000m/km)(1h/3600s)=v i Define known & unknown: a=3.5m/s 2 v i =8.33m/s t=6.8sv f =? Choose the appropriate equation v f = ā t + v i Rearrange if necessary (it is not in this case) Plug & Chug v f =(3.5m/s 2 )(6.8s)+(8.33m/s) v f =32.13m/s

7
Looking at a position-time graph, we can find: Figure 3-9 Velocity (slope) Specific positions at specific times From our original velocity equation, v= d/ t, we can find that d=v t The area under the line in a velocity-time graph is v t, which is the displacement! Figure 3-10 Slope is v/ t, which is acceleration!

8
Position (d f ) of an object under acceleration can be found with: d f =½at 2 (m/s 2 )(s 2 )=m If there is an initial distance that we need to add, then: d f =d i +½at 2 (m)+(m/s 2 )(s 2 )=m If there is an initial velocity, then we can also include that term! d f =d i +v i t+½at 2 (m)+(m/s)(s)+(m/s 2 )(s 2 )=m This equation is only useful if time of travel is known

9
Unlike the prior equation, sometimes time is not known, so we need to relate velocity to distance traveled v f 2 =v i 2 +2a(d f -d i )(m/s) 2 =(m/s) 2 +(m/s 2 ) (m-m)

11
A race car travels on a racetrack at 44m/s and slows at a constant rate to a velocity of 22m/s over 11s. How far does it move during this time? Define known & unknown: v i =44m/sv f =22m/s t=11s d=? a=? Choose the appropriate equation We need to find ā first v f = ā t + v i Rearrange if necessary ā =(-v i +v f )/ t Plug & Chug ā =(-44m/s+22m/s)/(11s) ā =-2m/s 2

12
Now that we have ā, we can solve for d f Define known & unknown: v i =44m/sv f =22m/s t=11sa=-2m/s 2 d=? Choose the appropriate equation d f =d i +v i t+½at 2 Rearrange if necessary Plug & Chug d f =(0m)+(44m/s)(11s)+½(-2m/s 2 )(11s) 2 d f =363m

13
A car accelerates at a constant rate from 15m/s to 25m/s while it travels a distance of 125m. How long does it take to achieve this speed? Define known & unknown: v i =15m/sv f =25m/s t=?a=? d=125m Choose the appropriate equation We need to find ā first, but don’t know time v f 2 =v i 2 +2a(d f -d i ) Rearrange if necessary a=(v f 2 -v i 2 )/(2 d) Plug & Chug a=((25m/s) 2 -(15m/s) 2 )/((2)(125m)) a=1.6m/s 2

14
Now that we have ā, we can solve for t Define known & unknown: v i =15m/sv f =25m/s t=?a=1.6m/s 2 d=125m Choose the appropriate equation v f = ā t + v i Rearrange if necessary (v f -v i )/ ā = t Plug & Chug (25m/s-15m/s)/(1.6m/s 2 )= t t=6.3s

15
Free Fall- an object falling only under the influence of gravity Acceleration due to gravity- an object speeds up due to the Earth’s gravitational pull g=9.8m/s 2 Gravity is a specific kind of acceleration: like a quarter is a specific kind of money Gravity always points toward the center of the Earth

16
As gravity (g) is a kind of acceleration (a), we can replace all of the “a”’s with “g” This can only be done if the object is in free fall EquationVariablesInitial Conditions v f =g t + v i v f, t vivi d f =d i +v i t+½gt 2 d f, td i, v i v f 2 =v i 2 +2g(d f -d i )v f, d f v i, d i

Choose the appropriate equation v f =g t + v i Rearrange if necessary (not necessary) Plug & Chug v f =(9.8m/s 2 )(4.0s)+(0m/s) v f =39.2m/s

Define known & unknown: v i =22.5m/sv f =0m/s t=?g=-9.8m/s 2 d=? Choose the appropriate equation v f 2 =v i 2 +2g(d f -d i ) Rearrange if necessary d=(v f 2 -v i 2 )/(2g) Plug & Chug d=((0m/s) 2 -(22.5m/s) 2 )/(2(-9.8m/s 2 )) d=25.82m
