3 2.1 Kinematics Describes motion while ignoring the agents that caused the motion For now, will consider motion in one dimension Along a straight line Will use the particle model A particle is a point-like object, has mass but infinitesimal size

4 Position Defined in terms of a frame of reference One dimensional, so generally the x- or y- axis The object’s position is its location with respect to the frame of reference Fig 2.1(a)

5 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 Fig 2.1(b)

6 Displacement Defined as the change in position during some time interval Represented as  x SI units are meters (m)  x can be positive or negative Different than distance – the length of a path followed by a particle

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

8 Average Velocity The average velocity is 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

9 Average Velocity, cont Gives no details about the motion Gives the result of the motion It can be positive or negative It depends on the sign of the displacement It can be interpreted graphically It will be the slope of the position-time graph

10 Displacement from a Velocity - Time Graph The displacement of a particle during the time interval t i to t f is equal to the area under the curve between the initial and final points on a velocity-time curve Fig 2.1(c)

20 Fig 2.2(a)

21 Instantaneous Velocity, graph 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 Fig 2.2(b)

23 Instantaneous Velocity, equations The general equation for instantaneous velocity is When “velocity” is used in the text, it will mean the instantaneous velocity

24 Instantaneous Velocity, Signs At point A, v x is positive The slope is positive At point B, v x is zero The slope is zero At point C, v x is negative The slope is negative Fig 2.3

25 Instantaneous Speed The instantaneous speed is the magnitude of the instantaneous velocity vector Speed can never be negative

43 2.4 Average Acceleration Acceleration is the rate of change of the velocity It is a measure of how rapidly the velocity is changing Dimensions are L/T 2 SI units are m/s 2

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

45 Instantaneous Acceleration – Graph The slope of the velocity vs. time graph is the acceleration Positive values correspond to where velocity in the positive x direction is increasing The acceleration is negative when the velocity is in the positive x direction and is decreasing Fig 2.7

55 2.5 Negative Acceleration Negative acceleration does not necessarily mean that an object is slowing down If the velocity is negative and the acceleration is negative, the object is speeding up Deceleration is commonly used to indicate an object is slowing down, but will not be used in this text

56 Acceleration and Velocity, 1 When an object’s velocity and acceleration are in the same direction, the object is speeding up in that direction When an object’s velocity and acceleration are in the opposite direction, the object is slowing down

57 Acceleration and Velocity, 2 The car is moving with constant positive velocity (shown by red arrows maintaining the same size) Acceleration equals zero

58 Acceleration and Velocity, 3 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

59 Acceleration and Velocity, 4 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

64 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 The equations are useful when you can model a situation as a particle under constant acceleration

65 Kinematic Equations, specific For constant a, Can determine an object’s velocity at any time t when we know its initial velocity and its acceleration Does not give any information about displacement

66 Kinematic Equations, specific For constant acceleration, The average velocity can be expressed as the arithmetic mean of the initial and final velocities Only valid when acceleration is constant

67 Kinematic Equations, specific For constant acceleration, This gives you the position of the particle in terms of time and velocities Doesn’t give you the acceleration

68 Kinematic Equations, specific For constant acceleration, Gives final position in terms of velocity and acceleration Doesn’t tell you about final velocity

69 Kinematic Equations, specific For constant a, Gives final velocity in terms of acceleration and displacement Does not give any information about the time

70 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 Fig 2.12(a)

71 Graphical Look at Motion – velocity – time curve The slope gives the acceleration The straight line indicates a constant acceleration Fig 2.12(b)

72 The zero slope indicates a constant acceleration Graphical Look at Motion – acceleration – time curve Fig 2.12(c)

74 Problem-Solving Strategy – Constant Acceleration Conceptualize Establish a mental representation Categorize Confirm there is a particle or an object that can be modeled as a particle Confirm it is moving with a constant acceleration

75 Problem-Solving Strategy – Constant Acceleration, cont Analyze Set up the mathematical representation Choose the instant to call the initial time and another to be the final time These are defined by the parts of the problem of interest, not necessarily the actual beginning and ending of the motion Choose the appropriate kinematic equation(s)

76 Problem-Solving Strategy – Constant Acceleration, Final Finalize Check to see if the answers are consistent with the mental and pictorial representations Check to see if your results are realistic

90 Galileo Galilei(1564-1642)

91 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/s 2 g decreases with increasing altitude g varies with latitude 9.80 m/s 2 is the average at the earth’s surface

92 Acceleration of Free Fall, cont. We will neglect air resistance Free fall motion is constantly accelerated motion in one dimension Let upward be positive Use the kinematic equations with a y = g = -9.80 m/s 2 The negative sign indicates the direction of the acceleration is downward

96 Fig 2.15

97 Free Fall Example Initial velocity at A is upward (+) and acceleration is g (-9.8 m/s 2 ) At B, the velocity is 0 and the acceleration is g (-9.8 m/s 2 ) At C, the velocity has the same magnitude as at A, but is in the opposite direction The displacement is –50.0 m (it ends up 50.0 m below its starting point)
