Bellringer: 1/17 A runner is traveling 4.0m/s. Approximately, how fast is he traveling in miles per hour?

Chapter 2: Motion in One Dimension
Section 1: Displacement & Velocity

Motion – the change of an object’s position relative to some reference point
The study of physical concepts such as mass and force is called dynamics. The dynamics of objects in motion is called kinematics.

Scalar Vs. Vector Scalars Vectors Quantities described by a magnitude
Quantities described by both a magnitude and direction

Distance vs. Displacement
Scalar, how much ground an object covered during its motion Displacement Vector, how far out of place an object is

Displacement: ∆x = xf – xi
Objects that are “at rest” are not in motion. An object undergoes displacement when its position changes. So, displacement is the change of position. The displacement measures how far an object has moved from it’s starting location. Note: ∆ is the Greek symbol “delta”. It means “a change in”. xf means final position. xi means initial position. Displacement: ∆x = xf – xi

The displacement of an object does not always equal the distance it has traveled.

Displacement can be either positive or negative…depending on your frame of reference.
The right (or east) will be considered positive unless otherwise stated. Likewise with up (north). The left (or west) will be considered negative unless otherwise stated. Likewise with down (south). ∆x = -4 cm ∆x = 8 cm Negative Positive

With your partner, discuss the following:
What is this object’s position at 1 minute? What is the object’s position at 2 minutes? What is its displacement between 1 min and 5 min? Describe the motion of this object.

Speed Vs. Velocity Speed Rate at which an object covers a distance
Example: While on vacation, Lisa Carr traveled a total distance of 440 miles. Her trip took 8 hours. What was her average speed?

Velocity: v = ∆x = (xf-xi)
Average velocity – the total displacement divided by the total amount of time during the displacement. Velocity may be + or - , depending on the displacement. Velocity: v = ∆x = (xf-xi) ∆t (tf – ti)

Why refer to it as average velocity?
Example: Suppose you traveled from your house to school…a distance of 4.0 km. It took you .20 hours (12 minutes) because of heavy traffic. Your avg velocity would be: v = 4.0 km / .20 h v = 20 km/h Did you travel at that exact speed for the entire trip? Of course not. Because of this, velocity is an average.

Velocity and speed are not the same:
Velocity requires direction. Speed refers to the numerical value of velocity.

Avg. Speed and Avg. Velocity
I walk 4 meters East, 2 meters South, 4 meters West, and finally 2 meters North. The entire motion lasted for 24 seconds. Determine the average speed and average velocity. Average speed: 0.50m/s Displacement is 0 meters, average velocity is 0m/s

Example A crow flies east in a straight line. It begins flying at 3:04s, and comes to a rest at 3:11s. It was flying at an average velocity of 1.5 m/s. How far did the crow move from its initial position (in meters)?

(Final) Displacement: xf = v∆t + xi
Using the velocity equation, we can derive another equation to find an object’s position With your partner… 1) Use the base velocity equation to derive an equation to solve for the final displacement of an object. (Final) Displacement: xf = v∆t + xi

The slope of the line corresponds to the velocity.
Velocity can be determined using a position vs time graph. The slope of the line corresponds to the velocity.

Position vs Time How could we describe the motion of these objects?

Review Constant Velocity Positive Velocity
Positive Velocity Changing Velocity (acceleration) Slow, Rightward(+) Constant Velocity Fast, Rightward(+) Constant Velocity

Example Sketch a position vs. time and a velocity vs. time graph for the following: Your mother walks five meters to the kitchen at a velocity of 2 m/s, pauses by the refrigerator for three seconds, then walks back with a plate full of potato salad at a velocity of 1 m/s.

Chapter 2: Motion in One Dimension
Section 2: Accelerated Motion

Acceleration: a = ∆v/∆t = vf - vi
Definition: acceleration – the change in velocity over time. An object accelerates when it changes its motion. This means: Speeding up Slowing down Changing direction Acceleration: a = ∆v/∆t = vf - vi tf - ti

Acceleration has the derived unit of m/s2.
But…what does this unit actually mean? With your partner… Use the acceleration formula to show how the unit of m/s2 is obtained. Explain, in plain speak, what the unit m/s2 means. m 1 s s x = _m_ s x s s2 m _s_ s

The sign tells the direction.
The magnitude of acceleration tells how quickly the change is happening. The sign tells the direction. Acceleration with a “+” magnitude means the object is gaining velocity in the “+” direction. Acceleration with a “–” magnitude means the object is slowing down (or gaining velocity in the “–” direction.

Objects that have a constant velocity have no acceleration.
Centripetal acceleration – the constant change of direction of an object moving in circles.

Example Turner’s treadmill runs with a velocity of -1.2m/s and speeds up at regular intervals during a half hour workout. After 25 min, the treadmill has a velocity of -6.5 m/s. What is the average acceleration of the treadmill during this period?

Example A shuttle bus slows down with an average acceleration of -1.8m/s/s. How long does it take the bus to slow from 9.0m/s to a complete stop?

Acceleration can be determined using a velocity vs time graph.
Use the image below to: Calculate the average velocity of the car. Create a velocity vs time graph for the car. Calculate the avg. acceleration of the car.

Velocity vs Time The slope of a velocity vs time graph represents acceleration.

Using the base equation for acceleration, we can find other equations to find the velocity and/or displacement of moving objects that are changing their speed… With your partner: Using the base equation for acceleration, derive two new equations to solve for initial displacement and final velocity.

Bellringer: 1/22 What does the red line represent?
What is the acceleration at A? B? C?

x t A B C Graphing ! 1 – D Motion A … Starts at home (origin) and goes forward slowly B … Not moving (position remains constant as time progresses) C … Turns around and goes in the other direction quickly, passing up home

Graphing w/ Acceleration
x Graphing w/ Acceleration C B t A D A … Start from rest south of home; increase speed gradually B … Pass home; gradually slow to a stop (still moving north) C … Turn around; gradually speed back up again heading south D … Continue heading south; gradually slow to a stop near the starting point

Tangent Lines t On a position vs. time graph: SLOPE VELOCITY Positive
x Tangent Lines t On a position vs. time graph: SLOPE VELOCITY Positive Negative Zero SLOPE SPEED Steep Fast Gentle Slow Flat Zero

Increasing & Decreasing
t x Increasing Decreasing On a position vs. time graph: Increasing means moving forward (positive direction). Decreasing means moving backwards (negative direction).

Average Speed What is the AVERAGE speed of the bass boat depicted in the graph?

Average Speed Average speed is taking the total distance traveled (0 to 125 meters), and dividing by the total time (1 to 9 seconds) it takes. Average Speed = 125 meters = 15.6 m/s 8 seconds

Instantaneous Speed What is the instantaneous speed of the bass boat at t=7 seconds?

Instantaneous Speed Instantaneous speed is speed at any given point in time. At 7 seconds, the distance is 85 meters; therefore the IS is Instantaneous Speed = 85 meters = 12.1 m/s 7 seconds

Speed Graphs In what time period is the bass boat speeding up?
In what time period is the bass boat slowing down? When is the speed NOT changing?

Graphing Speed Speed is usually graphed using a line graph, and it depicts the distance and time. Time is the independent variable, and thus is ALWAYS on the x-axis. Distance is the dependent variable, and is ALWAYS on the y-axis.

Acceleration and Velocity
As velocity increases, so does acceleration As velocity decreases, so does acceleration When direction changes, so does acceleration When there is a constant velocity, there is no acceleration

Review

The Kinematic Equations describe the mathematical relationships that exist between an object’s motion. Displacement Velocity Acceleration Time

vf + vi 2 x = t Note that: Displacement with Constant Acceleration:
This equation does not require acceleration. vf + vi 2 x = t

Example A racing car reaches a speed of 42 m/s. It then begins a uniform negative acceleration, using its parachute and braking system, and comes to rest 5.5 s later. Find the distance that the car travels during braking. (Hint: list your givens)

Example A car accelerates uniformly from rest to a speed of 6.6m/s in 6.5s. Find the distance the car travels during this time.

vf = vi + a∆t Note that: Velocity with Constant Acceleration:
This equation does not require displacement. ∆t = (tf – ti) vf = vi + a∆t

xf = xi + vit + ½at2 Note that: “t” is actually “∆t”.
Displacement with Constant Acceleration: Note that: “t” is actually “∆t”. However, ti is usually 0. The equation can be rewritten to find xi. xf = xi + vit + ½at2

Example A plane starting at rest at one end of a runway undergoes a uniform acceleration of 4.8m/s/s for 15s before takeoff. What is its speed at takeoff? How long must the runway be for the plane to be able to take off?

vf2 = vi2 + 2a∆x Note that: Velocity with Constant Acceleration:
This equation does not require time. ∆x = (xf – xi) vf2 = vi2 + 2a∆x

Example A person pushing a stroller starts from rest, uniformly accelerating at a rate of 0.500m/s/s. What is the velocity of the stroller after it has traveled 4.75m?

Equations for Constantly Accelerated Straight-Line Motion

Bellringer 9/9 a=11.2 m/s/s and d = 79.8
A race car accelerates uniformly from 18.5m/s to 46.1 m/s in 2.47 seconds. Determine the acceleration of the car and the distance it traveled. a=11.2 m/s/s and d = 79.8

Falling Objects free fall – downward acceleration while under the effect of gravity only. Gravity is a force that causes objects to accelerate downward.

All objects free fall with an acceleration of g= -9.8 m/s2.
gravity causes objects to speed up as they fall downward and slow as they travel upward we will usually neglect air resistance until FRICTION is covered in more detail. For objects that are falling, launched, or thrown, downward acceleration is the value of gravity.

Graphing Free Fall Curved line on a position vs time graph signifies an accelerated motion
