Chapter 2 Motion Along a Straight Line
Goals for Chapter 2 To study motion along a straight line To define and differentiate average and instantaneous linear velocity To define and differentiate average and instantaneous linear acceleration To explore applications of straight-line motion with constant acceleration To examine freely falling bodies To consider straight-line motion with varying acceleration
2.1 Displacement, time, and the average velocity
Displacement: change in position, it is a vector quantity. Its direction is from start to end. ∆x = x 2 – x 1 Average x-velocity: the displacement, ∆x, divided by the time interval ∆t. Time: change in time ∆t = t 2 – t 1
Distance and Average Speed Distance: length of the path, it depends on the path. It is a scalar quantity. It has no direction. Average x-speed: the distance traveled ∆s divided by the time interval ∆t. It is a scalar. Average speed vs. average velocity When Alexander Popov set a world record in 1994 by swimming 100.0 m in 46.74 sec, his average speed was (100.0 m) / (46.74 s) = 2.139 m/s. but because he swam four lengths in a 25 meter pool, he started and ended at the same point and he had zero total displacement and zero average velocity!
example What is the average velocity of the car? Position at t 1 = 1.0 sPosition at t 2 = 4.0 s x 1 = 19 mx 2 = 277 m v av-x = (277 m – 19 m) / (4.0 s – 1.0 s) = 86 m/s The average velocity is positive because it is moving in the positive direction. Note: you can choose any way as +. +displacement
P-T graph of the car t (s) X (m) x 1 = 19m x 2 = 277m Slope = v av-x ∆x ∆t t = 1 st = 4 s

The positive x-direction is to the east. 1.A travels 50 km due east. 2.B travels 50 km due west 3.C travels 60 km due east, then turns around and travels 10 km due west 4.D travels 70 km due east. 5.E travels 20 km due west, then turns around and travels 20 km due east. a.Rank the five trips in order of average x-velocity from most positive to most negative. b.Which trips, if any, have the same average x-velocity? c.For which trip, if any, is the average x-velocity equal to zero? 4, 1, 3, 5, 2 1, 3 5
Practice 2.2 In an experiment, a shearwater (a seabird) was taken from its nest, flown 5150 km away, and released. The bird found its way back to its nest 13.5 days after release. If we place the origin in the nest and extend the +x-axis to the release point, what was the bird’s average velocity in m/s 1.For the return flight? 2.For the whole episode, from leaving the nest to returning? -4.42 m/s 0 m/s
Practice 2.4 Starting from a pillar, you run 200 m east (the +x-axis) at an average speed of 5.0 m/s, and then run 280 m west at an average speed of 4.0 m/s to a post. Calculate 1.Your average speed from pillar to post, 2.You average velocity from pillar to post. 4.4 m/s -0.72 m/s
Practice 2.6 Two runners start simultaneously from the same point on a circular 200 m track and run in the same direction. One runs at a constant speed of 6.20 m/s, and the other runs at a constant speed of 5.50 m/s. 1.When will the fast one first “lap” the slower one and how far from the starting point will each have run? 2.When will the fast one overtake the slower one for the second time, and how far from the starting point will they be at that instant? 286 s, 1770 m, 1570 m 572 s, 3540 m, 3140 m
Practice 2.8 A Honda Civic travels in a straight line along a road. Its distance x from a stop sign is given as a function of time t by the equation x(t) = αt 2 – βt 3, where α = 1.50 m/s 2 and β = 0.0500 m/s 3. Calculate the average velocity of the car for each time interval: a.t = 0 to t = 2.00 s; b.t = 0 to t = 4.00 s c.t = 2.00 s to t = 4.00 s.

The distance between points A and C is 5.00 m, the distance between points B and C is 10.0 m, and the positive direction of the x-axis points to the right.

Homework: 2. 9, 2.11 and work sheet
2.2 Instantaneous velocity Instantaneous velocity is defined as the velocity at any specific instant of time or specific point along the path. Instantaneous velocity is a vector quantity, its magnitude is the speed, its direction is the same as its motion’s direction. How long is an instant? –In physics, an instant refers to a single value of time.
To find the instantaneous velocity at point P 1, we move the second point P 2 closer and closer to the first point P 1 and compute the average velocity v av-x = ∆x / ∆t over the ever shorter displacement and time interval. Both ∆x and ∆t become very small, but their ratio does not necessarily become small. In the language of calculus, the limit of ∆x / ∆t as ∆t approaches zero is called the derivative of x with the respect to t and is written dx/dt. P1P1 P2P2 The instantaneous velocity is the limit of the average velocity as the time interval approaches zero; it equals the instantaneous rate of change of position with time.
A cheetah is crouched 20 m to the east of an observer’s vehicle. At time t = 0 the cheetah charges an antelope and begins to run along a straight line. During the first 2.0 s of the attack, the cheetah’s coordinate x varies with time according to the equation x = 20 m + (5.0 m/s 2 )t 2. a.Find the displacement of the cheetah between t 1 = 1.0 s and t 2 = 2.0 s b.Find the average velocity during the same time interval. c.Find the instantaneous velocity at time t 1 = 1.0 s by taking ∆t = 0.1 s, then ∆t = 0.01 s, then ∆t = 0.001 s. d.Derived a general expression for the instantaneous velocity as a function of time, and from it find v x at t = 1.0 s and t = 2.0 s Example 2.1

Example 2.1 Average and instantaneous velocity
Average and instantaneous velocities in x-t graph Secant line – average velocity tangent line – instantaneous velocity
example 1.Which car starts later? 2.When does A & B pass each other? 3.Which car reaches 200 km first? 4.Calculate average speed of A and B. The automobiles make a 5 hour trip over a total distance of 200 km.
The Derivative…aka….The SLOPE! Suppose an eccentric pet ant is constrained to move in one dimension. The graph of his displacement as a function of time is shown below. t x(t) t + t x(t + t) A B At time t, the ant is located at Point A. While there, its position coordinate is x(t). At time (t+ t), the ant is located at Point B. While there, its position coordinate is x(t + t)
The secant line and the slope Suppose a secant line is drawn between points A and B. Note: The slope of the secant line is equal to the rise over the run. t x(t) t + t x(t + t) A B The slope of the secant line is average velocity
The “Tangent” line READ THIS CAREFULLY! If we hold POINT A fixed while allowing t to become very small. Point B approaches Point A and the secant approaches the TANGENT to the curve at POINT A. t x(t) t + t x(t + t) A B t x(t) t + t x(t + t) A B We are basically ZOOMING in at point A where upon inspection the line “APPEARS” straight. Thus the secant line becomes a TANGENT LINE. The slope of the tangent line is ____________________ velocity.
The derivative Mathematically, we just found the slope! Lim stand for “__________" and it shows the ∆t approaches zero. As this happens the top numerator approaches a finite #. This is what a derivative is. A derivative yields a NEW function that defines the rate of change of the original function with respect to one of its variables. The above example shows the rate of change of "x" with respect to time.
In most Physics books, the derivative is written like this: Mathematicians treat as a SINGLE SYMBOL which means find the derivative. It is simply a mathematical operation. The bottom line: The derivative is the slope of the line tangent to a point on a curve.
example Consider the function x(t) = 3t +2; What is the time rate of change of the function (velocity)? This is actually very easy! The entire equation is linear and looks like y = mx + b. Thus we know from the beginning that the slope (the derivative) of this is equal to 3. We didn't even need to INVOKE the limit because the ∆t is cancel out. Regardless, we see that we get a constant.
Example Consider the function x(t) = kt 3, where k = proportionality constant. What happened to all the ∆t's ? They went to ZERO when we invoked the limit! What does this all mean?
The MEANING? For example, if t = 2 seconds, using x(t) = kt 3 =(1)(2) 3 = 8 meters. The derivative, however, tell us how our DISPLACEMENT (x) changes as a function of TIME (t). The rate at which Displacement changes is also called VELOCITY. Thus if we use our derivative we can find out how fast the object is traveling at t = 2 second. Since dx/dt = 3kt 2 =3(1)(2) 2 = 12 m/s
THERE IS A PATTERN HERE!!!!
Example x = 5, 1.Derivative of a constant Why?
2.Power Rule x = t 5 Example x = t -5 x = t
3.Constant Multiplier Example x = 4t 5
4.Addition and Subtraction Rule The derivative of the sum (or difference) of two or more functions is the sum (or difference) of the derivatives of the functions. x =2t 5 + 3t -1 Example
Chain rule If x is a function of f, and f is a function of t, so indirectly, x is a function of t: x(f(t)) Example
Class work Find the derivatives (dx/dt) of the following function 1.x = t 3 2.x = 1/t = t -1 3.x = (6t 3 + 2/t) -2 4.x = 16t 2 – 16t + 4

2.3 average and instantaneous acceleration The average acceleration of the particle as it moves from P 1 to P 2 is a vector quantity, whose magnitude equals to the change in velocity divided by the time interval. Velocity describes how fast a body’s position change with time. Acceleration describes how fast a body’s velocity change, it tells how speed and direction of motion are changing.

If we ignore air friction and the effects due to the earth’s rotation, all objects fall and rise at the constant acceleration. The constant acceleration of a freely falling body is called the acceleration due to gravity, and we use letter g to represent its magnitude. Near the earth’s surface g = 9.81 m/s/s = 32 ft/s/s On the surface of the moon, g = 1.6 m/s/s On the surface of the sun, g = 270 m/s/s a = -g 2.5 Free Falling Bodies
Example 2.6 A one-euro coin is dropped from the Leaning Tower of Pisa. It starts from rest and falls freely. Compute its position and velocity after.1.0 s. 2.0 s, and 3.0 s.
Example 2.7 You throw a ball vertically upward from the roof of a tall building. The ball leaves your hand at a point even with the roof railing with an upward speed of 15.0 m/s; the ball is then in free fall. On its way back down, it just misses the railing. At the location of the building, g = 9.80 m/s 2. find a.The position and velocity of the ball 1.00 s and 4.00 s after leaving your hand b.The velocity when the ball is 5.00 m above the railing c.The maximum height reached and the time at which it is reached d.The acceleration of the ball when it is at its maximum height.

Example 2.8 Find the time when the ball in Example 2.7 is 5.00 m below the roof railing.
Check your understanding 2.5 If you toss a ball upward with a certain initial speed, it falls freely and reaches a maximum height h at time t after it leaves your hand. 1.If you throw the ball upward with double the initial speed what new maximum height does the ball reach? 2.If you throw the ball upward with double the initial speed, how long does it take to reach its maximum height? 4h 2t

The position of an object is given by the equating x = 3.0t 2 + 1.5 t + 4.5, where x is in meters and t is in seconds. What is the instantaneous acceleration of the object at t = 3.00 s? 6 m/s 2
In the case of straight-line motion, if the position x is a known function of time, we can find v x = dx/dt to find x- velocity. And we can use a x = dv x /dt to find the x- acceleration as a function of time In many situations, we can also find the position and velocity as function of time if we are given function a x (t). 2.6 velocity and position by integration Finding v(t) and x(t) when given a(t)
The “AREA” In v-t graph, the area under the line represent displacement. How ever, if acceleration is not constant, how can we determine x(t)? t1t1 t2t2 v (m/s) t(s) x = area t1t1 t2t2 v (m/s) t(s) x = area t1t1 v (m/s) t(s) t1t1 v (m/s) t1t1 v(t) t2t2 v (m/s)
Zoom in We have learned that the rate of change of displacement is defined as the VELOCITY of an object. Consider the graph below t1t1 t2t2 v (m/s) t(s) t t1t1 t2t2 v (m/s) t(s) t t1t1 t2t2 v (m/s) t(s) t t1t1 v(t) t2t2 v (m/s) t(s) t dt ∆Area = v(t)∙dt TOTAL DISPLACEMENT = ∑∆Area = ∑v(t)∙dt
The “Integral” – the area The temptation is to use the conventional summation sign “ ". The problem is that you can only use the summation sign to denote the summing of DISCRETE QUANTITIES and NOT for something that is continuously varying. Thus, we cannot use it. When a continuous function is summed, a different sign is used. It is called an Integral, and the symbol looks like this: When you are dealing with a situation where you have to integrate, realize: WE ARE GIVEN: the derivative already WE WANT: The original function x(t) So what are we basically doing? WE ARE WORKING BACKWARDS!!!!! OR FINDING THE ANTI - DERIVATIVE
Example An object is moving at velocity with respect to time according to the equation v(t) = 2t. a) What is the displacement function? Hint: What was the ORIGINAL FUCNTION BEFORE the “derivative? was taken? b) How FAR did it travel from t = 2s to t = 7s? These are your LIMITS! 45 m You might have noticed that in the above example we had to find the change( ) over the integral to find the area, that is why we subtract. This might sound confusing. But integration does mean SUM. What we are doing is finding the TOTAL AREA from 0-7 and then the TOTAL AREA from 0-2. Then we can subtract the two numbers to get JUST THE AREA from 2-7.
In summary… So basically derivatives are used to find SLOPES and Integrals are used to find AREAS.
Example Here is a simple example of which you may be familiar with: Assume we know the circumference of a circle is 2 r, where r is the radius. How can we derive an expression for the area of a circle whose radius is R? We begin by taking a differential HOOP of radius "r" and differential thickness “dr” as shown. If we determine the area of JUST OUR CHOSEN HOOP, we could do the calculation for ALL the possible hoops inside the circle. Having done so, we would then SUM up all of those hoops to find the TOTAL AREA of the circle. The limits are going to be the two extremes, when r = R and when r = 0
