Chapter 2. Kinematics in One Dimension
Chapter Goal: To learn how to solve problems about motion in a straight line.

Student Learning Objectives
• To differentiate clearly between the concepts of position, velocity, and acceleration. • To translate kinematic information between verbal, pictorial, graphical, and algebraic representations. • To utilize basic ideas of differentiation and integration both symbolically and graphically in kinematics problems. • To understand free-fall motion and motion along an inclined plane. • To begin the development of a robust problem-solving strategy for solving quantitative kinematics problems .

Workbook problem # 1b Sketch a position vs. time graph for the following on the white board: Trucker Bob starts the day 120 miles west of Denver. He drives east for 3 hours at a steady 60 mph before stoping for his coffee break. Let Denver be located at x = 0 mi. and assume the x-axis (which is the position axis) points east (i.e. positive direction on axis represents east). Also assume he started driving at t = 0 hrs.

Solution to Workbook problem # 1b

Non-uniform motion A volunteer  will go to the far right hand side of the room. At t=0, start moving left very slowly and gradually speed up to top speed, passing the established origin on the way. Draw a motion diagram (without coordinate axis), a position vs. time graph, velocity vs. time graph and an acceleration vs time for this motion on the white board. Assume our volunteer is moving with constant acceleration.

Workbook Problem #5 The figure shows the position vs. time graphs for two objects, A and B, that are moving along the same axis. At the instant t=1s, is the speed of A greater than, less than, or equal to the speed of B? Explain: Do A and B ever have the same speed? If so when?

At the instant t=1s, the speed of A is greater than the speed of B. The slope of the line A is steeper than the slope of the line tangent to the point at t = 1s for B. A and B have the same speed when the slope of the line tangent to B is the same as that of A, at about 2.5 s.

Using the velocity graph to determine displacement
Redraw and put results in a table next to graph.

Using the velocity graph to determine displacement
xf = xi + the area under the velocity curve vx between t0 and tf. t=1s x1 = 5 m t=2s x2 = 20 m t=3s x3 = 45 m t= 4s x4 = 80 m t=5s x5 = 80 m (a tad unrealistic – nobody’s brakes are that good!)

Using the velocity graph to determine displacement
xf = xi + the area under the velocity curve vx between t0 and tf. t=1s x1 = 5 m But the velocity at t= 1s is equal to 10 m/s, according the graph. Why did the object only move 5m?

Using the velocity graph to determine position
When acceleration is constant: where (v0 + v1)/2 = vavg For the first second vavg = 5m/s

Which position-versus-time graph goes with the velocity-versus-time graph at the top? The particle’s position at ti = 0 s is xi = –10 m. Answer: B

Which position-versus-time graph goes with the velocity-versus-time graph at the top? The particle’s position at ti = 0 s is xi = –10 m. STT2.3

Motion with Constant Acceleration
A jet plane has an acceleration of 2m/s2 , starting from rest. Make a velocity vs. time graph for t = 0, 1, 2, 3, and 4s on the white board without using calculators or formulas. Make a position vs. time graph for the same time period. without resorting to a formula. Assume x0 = 0.

Motion with Constant Acceleration
Establish velocity values by taking the area under the acceleration curve at each second and adding v0: Establish position values by taking the area under the velocity curve at each second and adding x0.

Motion with Constant Acceleration
Establish velocity values by taking the area under the acceleration curve at each second and adding v0: Establish position values by taking the area under the velocity curve at each second and adding x0.

xf = xi + vx ∆t for constant velocity
for constant acceleration Is time important? If not, default to eq #3 above.

Example Problem #1 Bob throws the ball straight up at 20 m/s releasing the ball 1.5 m above the ground. What is the maximum height of the ball above the ground? What is the ball’s impact speed when it hits the ground? Step 1: pictorial representation, using particle model.

Bob throws the ball straight up at 20 m/s releasing the ball 1
Bob throws the ball straight up at 20 m/s releasing the ball 1.5 m above the ground. Draw a coordinate axis showing 0 and positive direction. Show important points in the motion, i.e. starting and ending points, where acceleration changes, points indicated by the problem. Use the particle model and select appropriate symbols for the kinematic quantities at those points. Acceleration symbols go between points It’s not necessary to draw Bob!

List knowns and quantities you need to find
List knowns and quantities you need to find. Use a motion diagram and vector subtraction if you need to confirm the direction of acceleration. Knowns Find y0 = 1.5m y1, v2 v0 = 20 m/s t0 = 0s a0 = -9.8m/s2 v1 = 0 m/s x2 = 0 m

Bob throws the ball straight up at 20. 0 m/s releasing the ball 1
Bob throws the ball straight up at 20.0 m/s releasing the ball 1.5 m above the ground. What is the maximum height of the ball above the ground? What is the ball’s impact speed when it hits the ground? For part a, is time important? The answer is no, so use equation #3 with appropriate symbols: v12 = v02 + 2a0∆y1,0 where ∆y1,0 = y1- y0 Solve for ∆y1,0 = - v02/2a ∆y1,0 = 20.4 m, so y1 = 21.9 m. Assess: If I could throw a ball straight up at about 40 mph, 22 m (70-ish feet) seems like a reasonable number Knowns Find y0 = 1.5m y1, v2 v0 = 20 m/s t0 = 0s a0 = -9.8m/s2 v1 = 0 m/s x2 = 0 m

Bob throws the ball straight up at 20. 0 m/s releasing the ball 1
Bob throws the ball straight up at 20.0 m/s releasing the ball 1.5 m above the ground. What is the maximum height of the ball above the ground? What is the ball’s impact speed when it hits the ground? For part b, is time important? The answer is no, so use equation #3 with appropriate symbols: v22 = v12 + 2a0∆y2,1 where ∆y2.1 = - y1 Solve for v2 = +/- (- 2a0y1)1/2 v2 = m/s Assess: reasonable , since it fell just a tad more than when it was launched. Knowns Find y0 = 1.5m v2 v0 = 20 m/s t0 = 0s a0 = -9.8m/s2 v1 = 0 m/s x2 = 0 m y1 = 21.9 m

Free Fall Problem for 2 objects
A pellet gun is fired straight downward from the edge of a cliff that is 15 m above the ground. The pellet strikes the ground with a speed of 27 m/s. How far above the cliff would the pellet have gone if the gun had been fired straight upward (Note: the gun has the same muzzle speed whether fired up or down). For 2 object problems, there is always at least one quantity that is the same for both objects. Use your pictorial representation and list of variables to figure out the important quantity or quantities. 42

EOC # 42 Measured velocity data for a Porsche 944 Turbo is as follows:
t (s) v (mph) 0 0 2 28 4 46 6 60 8 70 a. Is the acceleration constant? Graph the data and find out. b. How would you estimate the car’s acceleration at 2s and at 8s? Do so and give your answer in SI units. c. How would you estimate the distance traveled in the 10s? Do so. 1mph = m/s

EOC # 42 a(2s) = 11.5 mph/s - average between t=4s and t=0s
to estimate distance use rectangles with a width of 2s and a height of vavg for the interval ∆x = approx 217m

What was that Quadratic formula again??
A cave explorer drops a stone from rest into a hole. The speed of sound is a constant 343 m/s in air. The sound of the stone hitting the bottom is heard 1.50 s after the stone is dropped. How deep is the hole?

A cave explorer drops a stone from rest into a hole. The speed of sound is a constant 343 m/s in air. The sound of the stone hitting the bottom is heard 1.50 s after the stone is dropped. How deep is the hole? The quadratic formula yields both a negative and positive result for t1stone. The former is not physically possible. t1stone= 1.47 s The hole is 10.6 m deep.

Track Problems Position s is measured as distance from the origin, (s = 0) along the track. Right is positive, left negative, regardless of up/down x, v, and a vs. t graphs should be stacked as shown with the same time (horizontal) scale for all three. Graphs should show qualitatively correct slopes.

Track Problem #36 (end of chapter)
The ball goes down and then up to the left, turns and rolls all the way to the bottom. Draw position, velocity and acceleration graphs for the ball, all with the same time scale. Assume the ball has enough speed to reach the top. Recall position is measured as distance from the arbitrary origin (far left) therefore two right portions of track will show as the same position on the position graph.
