Chapter 2 Motion in One Dimension 2-1 Displacement and Velocity  Motion – takes place over time Object’s change in position is relative to a reference point Kinematics = part of physics that describes motion without discussing the forces that cause the motion  Displacement vs distance traveled  Displacement = the length of the straight-lined path between two points – not the total distance traveled.

 Displacement can be positive or negative values  During which time intervals did it travel is a positive direction? What about a negative direction?

Motion in 1 Dimension  Use the letter ‘ x ’ for horizontal motion and “y” for vertical motion (up and down).  Change in position (distance) = ∆X or (∆Y) Greek letter delta (∆) = a change in position Always (final position ) – (initial position) Formula for Displacement:

3 h 600 km Speed can interpreted using a Displacement vs Time Graph

Different Slopes Run = 1 hr Rise = 0 km Rise = 2 km Rise = 1 km Slope = Rise/Run = 1 km/1 hr = 1 km/hr Slope = Rise/Run = 0 km/1 hr = 0 km/hr Slope = Rise/Run = 2 km/1 hr = 2 km/hr

Difference between Velocity and Speed  Velocity describes motion with both a direction and a numerical value (a magnitude).  Moving at 65 mph due North  Speed has no direction, only magnitude. Formula: V = d/t (direction) S = d/t

 Average velocity is the total displacement divided by the time interval during which the displacement occurred. V avg = V i + V f 2 And if V i = 0, then, V avg = ½ v f

2.2 ACCELERATION –  The change in velocity over time. In Physics we use the expression: ∆v v f - v i ∆t t f - t i The units for acceleration are usually meters ( m/s/s ) or m/s 2 seconds 2 a ==

Velocity -Time Graphs Slope on a velocity time graph is acceleration. Time (s) Velocity (m/s) Slope = ___________ Acceleration = _______________ Rise (ΔY) Run (Δ X) Δ Velocity (ΔY) Δ Time (Δ X) (ΔY) (Δ X) Therefore: slope of V-T graph = acceleration

1.What is the final velocity of a car that accelerates from rest at 4 m/s/s for three seconds 2.2. What is the slope of the line for the red car for the first three seconds? 3. Does the red car pass the blue car at three seconds? If not, then when does the red car pass the blue car? 4. When lines on a velocity-time graph intersect, does it mean that the two cars are passing by each other? If not, what does it mean?

1. What is the final velocity of a car that accelerates from rest at 4 m/s/s for three seconds? 12 m/s 2. What is the slope of the line for the red car for the first three seconds? 4 m/s 2 3. Does the red car pass the blue car at three seconds? If not, then when does the red car pass the blue car? No, at 9 sec 4. When lines on a velocity-time graph intersect, does it mean that the two cars are passing by each other? If not, what does it mean? No, just same velocity

Slope of a velocity vs time = acceleration rise/ run = ∆v/∆t = acceleration

IMPORTANT FORMULAS: Displacement and Final Velocity For an object that accelerates from rest (v i = 0) ∆x = ½ ( v f ) ∆t ( remember: ½ v f = v avg ) v f = a ( ∆t ) ∆x = ½ a( ∆t ) 2 V f 2 = 2(a)(∆x)
