2 Chapter 2 Kinematics in One Dimension Distance and Displacement
3 KinematicsKinematics is the branch of mechanics that describes the motion of objects without necessarily discussing what causes the motion.Dynamics deals with the effect that forces have on motion.Together, kinematics and dynamics form the branch of physics known as Mechanics.
4 How far have you gone if you run around the track one time?
5 Distance vs Displacement Distance ( d )Total length of the path travelledMeasured in metersscalarDisplacement ( )Change in position (x) regardless of pathx = xf – xivector
7 Chapter 2 Kinematics in One Dimension Speed and Velocity
8 Average Speed SI units for speed: meters per second (m/s) The total distance traveled divided by the time required to cover the distance.SI units for speed: meters per second (m/s)
9 Example 1: Distance Run by a Jogger How far does a jogger run in 1.5 hours (5400 s) if his average speed is 2.22 m/s?
10 Average Velocity SI units for velocity: meters per second (m/s) The displacement divided by the elapsed time.SI units for velocity: meters per second (m/s)
11 Example 2 The World’s Fastest Jet-Engine Car Andy Green in the car ThrustSSC set a world record of m/s in To establish such a record, the driver makes two runs through the course, one in each direction, to nullify wind effects. From the data, determine the average velocity for each run.
13 What is the average velocity for both runs? (combined) What is the average speed for both runs? (combined)
14 Instantaneous Velocity & Speed The instantaneous velocity indicates how fast the car moves and the direction of motion at each instant of time.The instantaneous speed is the magnitude of the instantaneous velocity

40 Chapter 2 Kinematics in One Dimension Section 6:Freely Falling Bodies
41 Free FallIn the absence of air resistance, it is found that all bodiesat the same location above the Earth fall vertically withthe same acceleration. If the distance of the fall is smallcompared to the radius of the Earth, then the accelerationremains essentially constant throughout the descent.This idealized motion is called free-fall and the accelerationof a freely falling body is called the acceleration due togravity.
42 Freefalling bodiesI could give a boring lecture on this and work through some examples, but I’d rather make it more real…
43 Free fall problemsUse same kinematic equations just substitute g for aChoose +/- carefully to make problem as easy as possible

46 Conceptual Example 14 Acceleration Versus Velocity There are three parts to the motion of the coin. On the wayup, the coin has a vector velocity that is directed upward andhas decreasing magnitude. At the top of its path, the coinmomentarily has zero velocity. On the way down, the coinhas downward-pointing velocity with an increasing magnitude.In the absence of air resistance, does the acceleration of thecoin, like the velocity, change from one part to another?
