Kinematics in One Dimension

Distance and Displacement

Starting from origin, O a person walks 90-m east, then turns around and walks 40-m west.

Displacement The displacement  d is a vector that points from the initial position d i to the final position d f.  d = d f - d i SI Unit of Displacement: meter (m)

2.2 Speed and Velocity Average Speed Average Velocity Instantaneous Velocity Instantaneous Speed

Average Speed Units for speed: m/s, MPH, kmPH.

Average Velocity Units for velocity: m/s, MPH, kmPH.

Acceleration

Units: m/s 2, cm/s 2

Deceleration

An object speeds up when the acceleration and velocity vectors point in the same direction.

Deceleration An object speeds up when the acceleration and velocity vectors point in the same direction. Whenever the acceleration and velocity vectors have opposite directions, the object slows down and is said to be “decelerating.”

Deceleration An object speeds up when the acceleration and velocity vectors point in the same direction. Whenever the acceleration and velocity vectors have opposite directions, the object slows down and is said to be “decelerating.” Example 4: A drag racer crosses the finish line, and the driver deploys a parachute and applies the brakes to slow down. The driver begins slowing down when t 0 = 9.0 s and the car's velocity is v 0 = +28 m/s. When t = 12.0 s, the velocity has been reduced to v = +13 m/s. What is the average acceleration of the dragster?

Kinematics Equations

2.6 Freely Falling Bodies

In the absence of air resistance, it is found that all bodies at the same location above the earth fall vertically with the same acceleration.

2.6 Freely Falling Bodies In the absence of air resistance, it is found that all bodies at the same location above the earth fall vertically with the same acceleration. Furthermore, if the distance of the fall is small compared to the radius of the earth, the acceleration remains essentially constant throughout the fall.

2.6 Freely Falling Bodies In the absence of air resistance, it is found that all bodies at the same location above the earth fall vertically with the same acceleration. Furthermore, if the distance of the fall is small compared to the radius of the earth, the acceleration remains essentially constant throughout the fall. This idealized motion, in which air resistance is neglected and the acceleration is nearly constant, is known as free-fall.

Furthermore, if the distance of the fall is small compared to the radius of the earth, the acceleration remains essentially constant throughout the fall. This idealized motion, in which air resistance is neglected and the acceleration is nearly constant, is known as free-fall. Since the acceleration is constant in free-fall, the equations of kinematics can be used.

Acceleration Due to Gravity The acceleration of a freely falling body is called the acceleration due to gravity, g. The acceleration due to gravity is directed downward, toward the center of the earth. Near the earth's surface, g = 9.80 m/s 2, down.

Heavy and light objects fall at the same rate

A Falling Stone A stone is dropped from rest from the top of a tall building, as the figure indicates. After 3.00 s of free-fall, a. what is the velocity v of the stone? b. what is the displacement y of the stone?

Coin Toss A football game customarily begins with a coin toss to determine who kicks off. The referee tosses the coin up with an initial speed of 6.00 m/s. In the absence of air resistance, how high does the coin go above its point of release?

What is the velocity and acceleration at the maximum height?

2.7 Graphical Analysis of Motion First we will graphically look at a motion where a person walks at a constant velocity along a straight-line path.

EXAMPLE 16 A Bicycle Trip A bicyclist maintains a constant velocity on the outgoing leg of a journey, zero velocity while stopped for lunch, and another constant velocity on the way back.

Velocity versus Time graph A car is moving along a straight-line path starting from rest at a constant acceleration. Once the car reaches a velocity of 45 MPH, that velocity is maintained for a while. Finally the brakes are applied with a constant deceleration and the car comes to rest.

Time for the car?

Velocity VS. Time The slope of the velocity versus time graph is the acceleration. The area under the velocity versus time graph is the displacement.
