2 What is motion?An object is in motion if its position changes relative to a reference pointReference point: place or object used for comparison to determine if something is in motion
3 Motion is RelativeMotion is relative – it depends on where the reference point isYou may not be moving according to one reference point, but you may be moving according to another.Carousel – page 6
4 Practice ProblemsJane is sitting in the family car. Her mother is driving her from their house to the library. Jane waves as she passes her friend Marina. Which of the following is not moving with respect to Jane?MarinaThe family carThe libraryJane’s house
5 Practice ProblemsWhat is the best reference point for describing the motion of planets around the solar system?What is the best reference point for describing the motion of the moon around the Earth?
6 Exploring Reference Points The reference point determines if the object seems to be still or be in motion. Ex: a crow is flying along carrying a ball. Suddenly, the crow accidentally drops the ball and watches it fall. A person is standing on the ground watching the crow and the ball.
7 Exploring Reference Points If the crow is the reference point, in what direction is the ball falling?If the woman is the reference point, in what direction is the ball falling?
8 Question to think about You are standing at your locker and your friend is walking towards.The next day, you see your friend walking towards you and you decide to start walking towards him too. To you, (as the reference point) does he seem to moving slower or faster than yesterday?

11 Enriched Problem – try with a partner CC Sabathia throws a 90 mi/hr fast ball.CC is standing at the back of the Yankees bus that is traveling 60 mi/hr down the highway (going to beat the Red Sox).CC decides to begin warming up and throws a pitch from the back to the front of the bus.Brett Gardner, another Yankee, sees CC’s pitch as being how fast?If a fan standing on the side of the road saw CC’s pitch, how fast would they see it?
13 What is speed?The speed of an object is the distance the object moves per unit of time (it is a type of rate)
14 How to calculate speedSpeed is equal to the distance the object travels, divided by the amount of time it takes to travel that distance.Speed = distance ÷ time
15 Steps to solve speed problems Read the entire problemWrite down what you are given (speed, distance, time)Write down what you need to find out (speed, distance, time)Draw the triangleCover the part of the triangle that you are looking forDivide or multiply to solve the problemWrite your answer with the correct units!
16 Understanding the meaning of rates If a car is driving 10 miles per hour, how far has the car gone in one hour?If an airplane flies at 260 meters per second, how far has the plane gone in one second?
17 Speed problemsA swimmer swam 6 km in 0.2 hours. What was the swimmer’s speed?A runner ran a 26 mile marathon in 5 hours. What was the runner’s speed?A police car chased a truck for 30 miles and it took 20 minutes. How fast was the police officer going?
18 A bit more difficult…Odell Beckham Jr. runs at a speed of 7 km/hr. How long would it take him to run 400 kilometers assuming he does not get tired and slow down.McKayla Maroney (Olympic gymnast) runs 60 ft. at a speed of 15 ft/sec. How long does it take her to get to the vault?
19 Even more difficult…A train leaves NYC and begins traveling 3,000 miles to L.A. The train drives at a constant speed of 80 mi/hr without stopping along the way. If the train leaves at 1 a.m. (eastern time), what time will is arrive in L.A. (eastern time)?After arriving in L.A., the train drops off passengers and begins traveling to Austin Texas. The train keeps the same speed (80mi/hr) and travels for 17.5 hours until it reaches its destination. How far is Austin from L.A.?
22 What is velocity?The velocity of an object is the objects speed in a given direction.Ex:SpeedThe car is moving at 40 miles/hourThe girl is running at a speed of 5 km/hourVelocityThe car is moving north at a speed of 40 miles/hourThe storm is moving 25km/hr eastward
23 How to calculate velocity Velocity is equal to the distance the object travels, divided by the amount of time it takes to travel that distance in a certain directionVelocity = distance ÷ time (in a certain direction)Solve same way you would solve speed problems (using velocity = to speed) and including direction in your answer!
24 Practice ProblemsA flock of birds are flying 300 miles south for winter. It takes them 12.5 hours to reach their winter home. What is the speed of the flock of birds? What is the velocity of the flock or birds?
25 Try to solve these with a partner Amber walked to talk to her friend Maria on her way to the pool.

26 Let’s think back to this problem CC Sabathia throws a 90 mi/hr fast ball.CC is standing at the back of the Yankees bus that is traveling north 60 mi/hr down the highway (going to beat the Red Sox).CC decides to begin warming up and throws a pitch from the back to the front of the bus.A fan standing on the side of the road saw CC’s pitch and clocked it as how fast? What was the velocity of his pitch?
27 Let’s go a bit more in depth… The fan clocked CC’s pitch as traveling 150 mi/hr.Now, CC decided to stand in the front of the bus and throw towards the back so he would not distract the driver. The bus is till traveling north at 60 mi/hr and CC’s arm has yet to get tired (still throwing 90 mi/hr). Now what speed would the fan on the side of the road see? What would the velocity be?
28 More practiceCar A travels EAST at an average speed of 20 miles per hour for 3 hours and then stops. Car B travels WEST at an average speed of 50 miles per hour for 2 hours and then stops. Both cars start from the same place. How far apart are the cars?Two tigers are hunting deer. The tigers start from the same place, but run in OPPOSITE directions to catch their own deer. Tiger #1 runs at an average speed of 30 miles per hour for 1 hour to track down his deer. Tiger #2 runs at an average speed of 20 miles per hour for 1 hour to catch its deer. How far apart are the tigers eating?
31 What is acceleration?Acceleration – the rate at which velocity changesRefers to an increase in speed, a decrease in speed (deceleration), or a change in directionNote: a change in direction = a change in velocity
32 Calculating acceleration Acceleration is the change in speed per unit of time.Acceleration = (final speed – initial speed) ÷ timeAcceleration = (24m/s – 0m/s) ÷ (3 sec)Acceleration of the plane = 8 m/s^2

What is the acceleration of the rollercoaster?The rollercoaster stays at .016 mi/s throughout the entire ride until it is over. It takes 5.2 seconds to come to a complete stop. What is the deceleration of the rollercoaster?
37 This may be tricky…Your rollercoaster accelerates to 57 mi/hr (at the beginning of the ride) and then continues at a constant speed. Does it accelerate in any way prior to the ride ending? Why or why not?
40 What is a force? Force: a push or pull on an object Includes strength and direction (like velocity)The SI unit used to measure force = newton (N)
41 Net Forces Net Force: combination of all forces acting on an object Determines if and howan object will accelerate
42 Balanced and Unbalanced Forces Will NOT cause change in an object’s motionForces “cancel” each other outNet force = 0Will cause change in an object’s motionForces DO NOT “cancel” outNet force ≠ 0

51 Newton’s First Law of Motion Law of InertiaAn object at rest will remain at rest unless acted upon by an outside forceAn object in motion will stay in motion unless acted upon by an outside force
52 Newton’s Second Law of Motion An object’s acceleration depends on its mass and the net force acting on itForce = mass x acceleration
53 Calculating ForceF = maYou can use the triangle!A 10 kg box accelerated up the hill at 2 m/s². What force is exerted on the box?A 15 kg box is slid across the floor with an acceleration of 3m/s². What force is needed for this motion?
54 Try to create your own force word problems! Then, trade with a partner and solve.
55 Newton’s Third Law of Motion If one object exerts a force on another object, then the second object exerts a force of equal strength in the opposite direction on the first object.Many sports (including gymnastics) exemplify this law
56 Newton’s 3rd Law of Motion While driving down the road, a firefly strikes the windshield of a bus and makes a quite obvious mess in front of the face of the driver. This is a clear case of Newton's third law of motion. The firefly hit the bus and the bus hits the firefly. Which of the two forces is greater: the force on the firefly or the force on the bus?
68 Transverse waves: medium particles move across (up & down) the direction of the wave Crest: high point of waveTrough: low point of waveA water wave is an example of a transverse wave. As water particles move up and down, the water wave itself appears to move to the right or left
69 2. Longitudinal waves: medium particles move back and forth in the same direction in which the wave travels-Coils move forward and then backEnergy travels from one end of the spring to the other creating a wave-After the wave passes,each coil returns to theposition where it started
70 Comparison of WavesWe will mainly discuss transverse waves
71 Properties of transverse Waves - Crest = Top of the wave- Trough = Bottom of the wave- Wavelength = The length of a complete wave fromcrest-to-crest or trough-to-trough- Amplitude = Height of the wave from equilibrium
72 Why does this matter? A smaller wavelength = higher energy Frequency: amount of waves per secondWaves on the electromagnetic spectrum all have DIFFERENT FREQUENCIES
79 Vocabulary to knowTransparent: material that allows most or ALL light to pass through (clear)Translucent: material that allows SOME light to pass through (clear colored)Opaque: material that does NOT allow ANY light to pass through (all light is reflected or absorbed)
81 rainbowsWhite light is not a single color; it is made up of a mixture of the seven colors of the rainbow.We can demonstrate this by splitting white light with a prism:How do you think rainbows are formed?
83 How we see colorsThe colors that we see are REFLECTED off of the object – all other colors are ABSORBEDEx: a shirt appears light blue (reflects blue)The shirt absorbs other colorsEX: a shirt appears white (reflects white)
84 reflection Reflection occurs when light bounces off a surface Light rays reflected in a mirror cause an inverted image
85 refractionRefraction occurs when light BENDS as it crosses through material
