2 KinematicsKinematics is the branch of mechanics that describes the motion of objects without necessarily discussing what causes the motion.1-Dimensional Kinematics (or 1 - Dimensional motion) refers to motion in a straight line.DistanceThe total length of the path traveled by an object is called distance.“How far have you walked?” is a typical distance question.The SI unit of distance is the meter (m).
3 Displacement (Dx)The change in the position of a particle is called displacement.∆ is a Greek letter used to represent the words “change in”. ∆x therefore means “change in x”. It is always calculated by final value minus initial value.“How far are you from home?” is a typical displacement question.The SI unit for displacement is the meter. Calculation of displacement:∆x = xf - xi

10 Average Speed save = d/∆t ∆t = elapsed time Average speed describes how fast a particle is moving. The equation is:where:save = average speedd = distance∆t = elapsed timeThe SI unit of speed is the m/ssave = d/∆tAverage speed isalways a positivenumber.
11 Average velocity describes how fast the displacement is changing Average velocity describes how fast the displacement is changing. The equation is:where:vave = average velocity∆x = displacement∆t = elapsed timeThe SI unit of speed is the m/svave = ∆x/ ∆tAverage velocity is+ or – depending on direction.

28 Acceleration (a)Any change in velocity over a period of time is called acceleration.The sign (+ or -) of acceleration indicates its direction.Acceleration can be…speeding upslowing downturning
29 QuestionsIf acceleration is zero, what does this mean about the motion of an object?it means the velocity is constant at 0 m/s or some velocity greater than 0 m/sThe object has a constant speed, and it is moving in a straight lineIs it possible for a racecar circling a track to have zero acceleration?No because the race car is changing direction. When an object changes direction it changes velocity, so it has an acceleration present.
30 Uniform (Constant) Acceleration In Physics B, we will generally assume that acceleration is constant.With this assumption we are free to use this equation:The SI unit of acceleration is the m/s2.Acceleration in 1-D Motion has a sign!If the sign of the velocity and the sign of the acceleration is the same, the object speeds up.If the sign of the velocity and the sign of the acceleration are different, the object slows down.a = ∆v / ∆t

59 Free FallFree fall is a term we use to indicate that an object is falling under the influence of gravity, with gravity being the only force on the object. Air resistance is considered negligible.Gravity accelerates the object toward the earth the entire time it rises, and the entire time it falls.Freefall is like any other type of accelerated motion; it’s just that the acceleration is pretty well defined. The acceleration due to gravity near the surface of the earth has a magnitude of 9.8 m/s2.The direction of this acceleration is DOWN.

63 Symmetry in Free FallWhen something is thrown straight upward under the influence of gravity, and then returns to the thrower, this is very symmetric.The object spends half its time traveling up; half traveling down.Velocity when it returns to the ground is the opposite of the velocity it was thrown upward with.Acceleration is 9.8 m/s2 and directed DOWN the entire time the object is in the air!
