2 Kinematics- the branch of physics that describes motion in terms of x, v, a, and tx- position (m) (sometimes d)v- velocity (m/s)a- acceleration (m/s²)t- time (s)Dynamics is kinematics + force exerted on an object.
3 Displacement Defined as the change in position f stands for final and i stands for initialUnits are meters (m) in SIExample: If Xf = 30m and Xi = 20m what is the displacement?
4 Distance is different than Displacement Distance is a scalar quantity which refers to "how much ground an object has covered" during its motion.Displacement is a vector quantity which refers to "how far out of place an object is"; it is the object's overall change in position.
5 A physics teacher walks 4 meters East, 2 meters South, 4 meters West, and finally 2 meters North. Distance traveled would be 2m +4m + 2m +4m = 12mDisplacement would be 0m, you end where you started.
6 DisplacementXi =120m Xf = 5m ΔX= Xf - Xi ΔX= 5-120= -115 Negative displacement moves left or down; positive displacement moves right or up.
7 Displacement Examples From A to Bxi = 30 mxf = 52 mx = 22 mThe displacement is positive, indicating the motion was in the positive x directionFrom C to Fxi = 38 mxf = -53 mx = -91 mThe displacement is negative, indicating the motion was in the negative x direction
9 SpeedThe average speed of an object is defined as the total distance traveled divided by the total time elapsed (scalar quanity)SI units are m/s (meters per second)Always positive
10 Velocity Velocity is magnitude and direction 7 m/s EastIf V is positive motion is to the right.If V is negative motion is to the left.Speed is the magnitude of velocity (no direction)Velocity is a vector quanity
11 Velocity It takes time for an object to undergo a displacement The average velocity is the rate at which the displacement occursVelocity can be positive or negativet is always positive
12 Speed vs. VelocityCars on both paths have the same average velocity since they had the same displacement in the same time intervalThe car on the blue path will have a greater average speed since the distance it traveled is larger
13 Practice problemHow fast is a train moving if it travels 25 m in 5 sec?Given:Solve:X=25mV = x/tV = 25m / 5 sect=5sV = 5 km/s
14 Example QuestionIf a car travels 100 miles in 2 hours what is the velocity of the car?________ mphConvert this is meters/second
15 Example questionA car travels 40 meters between the hours of 10am and 12am. What is the cars average velocity?
16 A runner runs 3 seconds at 4m/s, stops for one second, and begins running for 2 seconds and covers 3m.What is the velocity from (a) A to B, (b) B to C, and (c) A to D
17 Constant Velocity • Constant velocity is when an object’s velocity remains the same for a givenamount of time.• An objects current velocity would be equal to the average velocity.
18 Acceleration Changing velocity means an acceleration is present Acceleration is the rate of change of the velocityUnits are m/s²The units come from m/s/s
19 Which car has the greatest acceleration? BlueBlue = A, Red = B, Green = CWhich line goes with which car?

25 Freely Falling Objects (3.3) An object moving under the influence of gravity alone. Regardless of its initial conditions.
26 Freely Falling objects Drop somethingThrow something and let it fallThrow something downObjects thrown upward or downward and those released from rest are all falling freely once released.Once in freefall motion all objects experience the same acceleration; downward and equal to the acceleration due to gravity. (Earths Gravity= 9.8 m/s²
27 V= Vo - gt y – yo= ½ (v + vo)t y – yo= Vo t - ½ gt2 a= -g = 9.8 m/s²V= Vo - gty – yo= ½ (v + vo)ty – yo= Vo t - ½ gt2V2 - Vo2 = - 2g (y – yo)
29 Remarks…Air resistance is neglected. All objects regardless of there mass will move at the same rate if they have the same initial conditionsFree fall motion is symetrical

33 Terminal Velocity• An object that falls will experience a force due to gravity and a force due to the air.• These forces are opposite in direction.• The object will reach a point where theforces balance, which means the object will no longer accelerate. It will continue with constant velocity.• Terminal velocity is the point reached by an object where it will no longer accelerate.
34 A Ball Thrown Up Consider a ball that is thrown straight up. • It will have maximum velocity the instant itleaves your hand and when it returns toyour hand. (The ball is caught at the sameheight.)• On the way up, the ball will have negativeacceleration, therefore the ball’s velocitywill decrease.
