Motion Definitions Velocity to position Adding and Subtracting Vectors Graphically

Where’s the train? A train is moving at a steady 30 m/s. At t = 0, the engine passes a signal light at x = 0. Without using any formulas, find the engine's position at t = 1s, 2s, and 3s. Express your reasoning in words. Slide 2-34

Answer A graph of position versus time for a basketball player moving down the court appears like so: Which of the following velocity graphs matches the above position graph? Answer: C C. Slide 2-16

Acceleration Acceleration is: The rate of change of velocity
The slope of a velocity- versus-time graph Slide 2-20

Ball on Ramps (From an Exam)
A ball is released from rest at the point shown on the incline and speeds up. It then rolls onto a level section of track at constant speed, and then rolls onto a second incline with the same slope as the first where it slows down. The diagram below shows the location of the ball at several instants in time. NOTE: THIS IS NOT A STROBE PHOTOGRAPH OR MOTION DIAGRAM. Describe the motion of the ball as it moves from left to right Determine the average velocity of the ball from t = 2.1 s to t = 3.6 s. Determine the average speed of the ball from t = 0.6 s to t = 5.1 s. Determine the average acceleration, ax, of the ball as it goes up the 2nd incline (from t = 3.6 s to t = 5.1 s). Answer: B

Question Velocity vectors point
in the same direction as displacement vectors. in the opposite direction as displacement vectors. perpendicular to displacement vectors. in the same direction as acceleration vectors. Velocity is not represented by a vector. Answer: A Slide 1-8

in the same direction as displacement vectors. Answer: A Slide 1-9
