1 Linear Motion Unit 1 Velocity and Acceleration

2 Objectives: Define the concept of average velocity in a way that shows you know how to calculate it Calculate average velocity and to solve an equation involving velocity, distance, and time Interpret and plot position-time graphs for positive and negative velocities Determine the slope of a curve on a position-time graph/velocity- time graph and calculate the velocity or acceleration Distinguish instantaneous from average velocity Define average and instantaneous velocity Be able to calculate average velocity, given two velocities and the time interval between them Be able to calculate final velocity in the case of uniform acceleration Be able to solve problems of motion of objects uniformly accelerated by gravity Calculate distance fallen in an object affected by gravity Learn to use an organized strategy for solving motion problems

3 Speed Instantaneous speed- – Example: Car speedometer Average speed-

4 Instantaneous velocity- v = d t v = velocity, m/s d = displacement, m t = time, s Velocity d V t

5 Average velocity- Can you have a negative velocity? Why or why not?  v =  dSI Units: m/sEnglish: miles/hour  t  v = average velocity, m/s d = displacement, m t = time, s

6 Example 3.1 Suppose a 100 m walk takes 80 seconds. What is the average velocity? Example 3.2 In the Summer Olympics the 100-m race was won in 9.83s. Find the average velocity in m/s. KnownUnknown Equation

7 Example 3.3 (pg. 43) A.What is the average speed of a cheetah that sprints 100 meters in 4 seconds? B. How about if the cheetah sprints 50 meters in 2 seconds?

8 Example 3.4 (pg. 43) If a car moves with an average speed of 60 km/h for an hour, it will have traveled a distance of 60 km. A.How far would it travel if it moved at a rate for 4 h? B.For 10 h?

9 Example 3.5 (pg. 43) In addition to the speedometer on the dashboard of every car is an odometer which records the distance traveled. If the initial reading is set at zero at the beginning of a trip and the reading is 40 km one-half hour later, what has been your average speed? Example 3.6 (pg 43) Would it be possible to attend this average speed and never go faster than 80km/h?

10 Position Time Draw a Graph of "Speeding Up" - Graphing Velocity

11 Position Time Draw a Graph of "Slowing Down" - Graphing Velocity

12 Position Time Draw a Graph of “Constant Speed” - Graphing Velocity

13 Comparisons - reaction time activity reaction time of fox sports science episode 3 – Any (approx. 12 minutes) - faster than sound information



16 Average acceleration- a =  vSI units = m/s 2 English: mi/h  t a = v = t = Acceleration

17 instantaneous acceleration- a = v t v a t

18 Example 3.7 Suppose you plan to attend the Pittsburgh Steelers home-opener. The distance from Hollidaysburg to Pittsburgh is 90 miles (145 km). a) If you are able to average 45 mph (20 m/s), how long will it take you to travel to the game? b) As you pull into the parking lot, you decrease your speed from 20 m/s to 0 m/s over a time period of 4.0 seconds. What is your acceleration?

19 Example 3.8 A car accelerates along a straight road from rest to 28 m/s in 5.0 s. What is the magnitude of its average acceleration? KnownUnknownEquation Example 3.9 (pg. 46) What is the acceleration of a race car that whizzes past you at a constant velocity of 400 km/h?

20 Example 3.10 The velocity of a car increases from 2.0 m/s at 1.0s to 16 m/s at 4.5 s. What is the car’s average acceleration? Known UnknownEquation Example 3.11 A car goes faster and faster backwards down a long driveway. We define the forward velocity as positive, so backward velocity is negative. The car’s velocity changes from –2.0 m/s to –9.0 m/s in a 2.0s time interval. Find the acceleration. Known UnknownEquation

21 What is going on in this graph?

22 What can you tell from this graph?

23 What can be read from this graph?

24 Explain the motion shown in the graph

25 Aristotle (384 - 322 BC) Natural Motion Objects in the universe have a proper place based on their nature. ROCK - SMOKE - FEATHER -. Earth-centric perspective Proposed Two Types of Motion: Heavier objects fall faster than light ones Violent Motion Resulted from pushing/pulling forces Sustained motion required a sustained force - Pushing and moving a heavy rock - Bow and arrow Review!!!!

26 Copernicus (1543) Galileo (1564-1642) Sun is the center of the solar system Leaning Tower of Pisa Experiment Inertia (Inclined Plane Experiments) Provided evidence that Aristotle's views were inaccurate.

27 Galileo's Labs





32 Galileo's Inclined Plane Experiment P hysics Unit 1 - Motion Name: ______________________ Period: _____ Angle of Incline ( o ) Distance Traveled (cm) Acceleration (m/s 2 ) Data Table -

33 Acceleration due to gravity

34 How Fast- Free Fall Freefall- - occurs when gravity is the only force that acts on an object - No air resistance (in a perfect world) Can take place when: - an object is falling - an object is rising - an object is traveling at an angle - an object is momentarily at rest at its highest point

35 Freefall Continued Gravity(g)- force of attraction between 2 masses Terminal Velocity-constant maximum velocity reached by a body falling under gravity through a fluid g = 10 m/s 2 g = v t

36 Example 3.12 (pg. 48-49) Using the speedometer on Figure 3.7 what would the speedometer reading be 5s after it drops from rest? How about 6s after it is dropped? 6.5 seconds?

37 Example 3.13 The time the Demon drop ride at Cedar Point, Ohio is free falling is 1.5 s. What is the velocity at the end of this time? KnownUnknownEquation

39 How Far d = 0.5 gt 2 Example 3.14 (pg. 50) A car steps off a ledge and drops to the ground in 0.5 seconds. A.What is it’s speed on striking the ground? B.What is its average speed during the 0.5 seconds? C.How high is the ledge from the ground?
