2.2 Instantaneous Velocity and Speed 2.3 Acceleration 2.4 Freely Falling Objects 2.5 Kinematic Equations Derived from Calculus.

Kinematics Kinematics describes motion while ignoring the agents that caused the motion For now, we will consider motion in one dimension Along a straight line We will use the particle model A particle is a point-like object, that has mass but infinitesimal size

Position Position is defined in terms of a frame of reference
For one dimension the motion is generally along the x- or y-axis The object’s position is its location with respect to the frame of reference

Position-Time Graph The position-time graph shows the motion of the particle (car) The smooth curve is a guess as to what happened between the data points

Displacement Displacement is defined as the change in position during some time interval Represented as x x = xf - xi SI units are meters (m), x can be positive or negative Displacement is different than distance. Distance is the length of a path followed by a particle.

Vectors and Scalars Vector quantities that need both -magnitude (size or numerical value) and direction to completely describe them We will use + and – signs to indicate vector directions Scalar quantities are completely described by magnitude only

Average Velocity The average velocity is the rate at which the displacement occurs The dimensions are length / time [L/T] The SI units are m/s Is also the slope of the line in the position – time graph

Average Speed Speed is a scalar quantity
same units as velocity total distance / total time The average speed is not (necessarily) the magnitude of the average velocity

Instantaneous Velocity
Instantaneous velocity is the limit of the average velocity as the time interval becomes infinitesimally short, or as the time interval approaches zero The instantaneous velocity indicates what is happening at every point of time

Instantaneous Velocity
The general equation for instantaneous velocity is The instantaneous velocity can be positive, negative, or zero

Instantaneous Velocity
The instantaneous velocity is the slope of the line tangent to the x vs t curve This would be the green line The blue lines show that as t gets smaller, they approach the green line

Instantaneous Speed The instantaneous speed is the magnitude of the instantaneous velocity Remember that the average speed is not the magnitude of the average velocity

Average Acceleration Acceleration is the rate of change of the velocity Dimensions are L/T2 SI units are m/s²

Instantaneous Acceleration
The instantaneous acceleration is the limit of the average acceleration as t approaches 0

Instantaneous Acceleration
The slope of the velocity vs. time graph is the acceleration The green line represents the instantaneous acceleration The blue line is the average acceleration

Acceleration and Velocity
When an object’s velocity and acceleration are in the same direction, the object is speeding up When an object’s velocity and acceleration are in the opposite direction, the object is slowing down

Acceleration and Velocity
The car is moving with constant positive velocity (shown by red arrows maintaining the same size) Acceleration equals zero

Acceleration and Velocity
Velocity and acceleration are in the same direction Acceleration is uniform (blue arrows maintain the same length) Velocity is increasing (red arrows are getting longer) This shows positive acceleration and positive velocity

Acceleration and Velocity
Acceleration and velocity are in opposite directions Acceleration is uniform (blue arrows maintain the same length) Velocity is decreasing (red arrows are getting shorter) Positive velocity and negative acceleration

1D motion with constant acceleration
tf – ti = t

1D motion with constant acceleration
In a similar manner we can rewrite equation for average velocity: and than solve it for xf Rearranging, and assuming

1D motion with constant acceleration
(1) Using and than substituting into equation for final position yields (1) (2) (2) Equations (1) and (2) are the basic kinematics equations

1D motion with constant acceleration
These two equations can be combined to yield additional equations. We can eliminate t to obtain Second, we can eliminate the acceleration a to produce an equation in which acceleration does not appear:

Kinematics with constant acceleration - Summary

Kinematic Equations - summary

Kinematic Equations The kinematic equations may be used to solve any problem involving one-dimensional motion with a constant acceleration You may need to use two of the equations to solve one problem Many times there is more than one way to solve a problem

Kinematics - Example 1 How long does it take for a train to come to rest if it decelerates at 2.0m/s2 from an initial velocity of 60 km/h?

Kinematics - Example 1 How long does it take for a train to come to rest if it decelerates at 2.0m/s2 from an initial velocity of 60 km/h? Using we rearrange to solve for t: Vf = 0.0 km/h, vi=60 km/h and a= -2.0 m/s2.

A car is approaching a hill at 30
A car is approaching a hill at 30.0 m/s when its engine suddenly fails just at the bottom of the hill. The car moves with a constant acceleration of –2.00 m/s2 while coasting up the hill. (a) Write equations for the position along the slope and for the velocity as functions of time, taking x = 0 at the bottom of the hill, where vi = 30.0 m/s. (b) Determine the maximum distance the car rolls up the hill.

(a). Take at the bottom of the hill where xi=0, vi=30m/s, a=-2m/s2

The distance of travel, xf,
becomes a maximum, when (turning point in the motion). Use the expressions found in part (a) for when t=15sec.

Graphical Look at Motion: displacement-time curve
The slope of the curve is the velocity The curved line indicates the velocity is changing Therefore, there is an acceleration

Graphical Look at Motion: velocity-time curve
The slope gives the acceleration The straight line indicates a constant acceleration

Graphical Look at Motion: acceleration-time curve
The zero slope indicates a constant acceleration

Freely Falling Objects
A freely falling object is any object moving freely under the influence of gravity alone. It does not depend upon the initial motion of the object Dropped – released from rest Thrown downward Thrown upward

Acceleration of Freely Falling Object
The acceleration of an object in free fall is directed downward, regardless of the initial motion The magnitude of free fall acceleration is g = 9.80 m/s2 g decreases with increasing altitude g varies with latitude 9.80 m/s2 is the average at the Earth’s surface

Acceleration of Free Fall
We will neglect air resistance Free fall motion is constantly accelerated motion in one dimension Let upward be positive Use the kinematic equations with ay = g = m/s2

Free Fall Example Initial velocity at A is upward (+) and acceleration is g (-9.8 m/s2) At B, the velocity is 0 and the acceleration is g (-9.8 m/s2) At C, the velocity has the same magnitude as at A, but is in the opposite direction
