Physics C 1-D Motion Suppose we need instantaneous velocity, but don’t have a graph? Suppose instead, we have a function for the motion of the particle. Suppose the particle follows motion described by something like x = (-4 + 3t) m x = ( t – ½ 3 t2) m x = -12t3 We could graph the function and take tangent lines to determine the velocity at various points, or… We can use differential calculus.

Physics C 1-D Motion Free Fall Free fall is a term we use to indicate that an object is falling under the influence of gravity, with gravity being the only force on the object.
