body without caring about what caused the motion. Particle Has position and mass. Has NO size or volume. Located at one point in space. Position

Location of a particle in space. One dimension (x) Two dimensions (x,y) Three dimensions (x,y,z) 1-Dimensional Coordinates x=1m

-1 0 1 2 3 X (m) Distance

The total length of the path traveled by an object. Does not depend upon direction. How far have you walked? 1-Dimensional Coordinates Distance moved by particle is 2 meters.

xf = -1 m -1 0 xi = 1 m 1 2 3

X (m) Displacement The change in position of an object. Depends only on the initial and final positions, not on path. Includes direction. How far are you from home?

Displacement Represented x by x. = x2 - x1 where x2 = final position x1= initial position

1-Dimensional Coordinates Distance moved by particle is 2 meters. Displacement of particle is -2 meters. xf = -1 m -1 0 xi = 1 m 1

Record results in table at front of room. Finish lab write-up at home if necessary. Average Speed save = d t Where: save = rate (speed) d = distance t = elapsed time

Average Velocity vave = x t Where: vave = average velocity x = displacement (x2-x1) t = change in time(t2-t1) Velocity vs Speed Average

speed is always positive. Average velocity can be positive or negative depending direction. Absolute value of velocity can be used for speed if the object is not changing direction. Average Velocity x

B x A t Vave = x/t, t or the slope of the line connecting A and B. Average Velocity x

A B x t t Vave = x/t; still determined by the slope of the line connecting A and B.

Instantaneous Velocity x B t Determined by the slope of the tangent to a curve at a single point. Acceleration

A change in velocity is called acceleration. Acceleration can be speeding up slowing down turning

Uniformly Accelerated Motion In Physics B, we will generally assume that acceleration is constant. With this assumption we are free to use this equation: a = v t

Units of Acceleration The SI unit for acceleration is m/s2. Sign of Acceleration Acceleration can be positive or negative. The sign indicates direction. General Rule

If the sign of the velocity and the sign of the acceleration is the same, the object speeds up. If the sign of the velocity and the sign of the acceleration are different, the object slows down. Accelerating objects Note: each of these x

curves has many different slopes (many different velocities)! t Pick the constant velocity graph(s)

x Another tangent. Another instantaneous velocity! t The tangent touches the curve at one point. Its slope gives the instantaneous velocity

at that point. Summary: Constant position graphs x v a t Position

time Summary v = vo + at x = xo + vot + 1/2 at2 v2 = vo2 + 2a(x) Free Fall Occurs when an object falls unimpeded. Gravity accelerates the object toward the earth.

Acceleration due to gravity g = 9.8 m/s2 downward. a = -g if up is positive. acceleration is down when ball is thrown up EVERYWHERE in the balls flight. Summary v = vo - gt

x = xo + vot - 1/2 gt2 v2 = vo2 2g(x) Symmetry When something is thrown upward and

returns to the thrower, this is very symmetric. The object spends half its time traveling up; half traveling down. Velocity when it returns to the ground is the opposite of the velocity it was thrown upward with. Acceleration is 9.8 m/s2 everywhere! Determination of Your Reaction Time! Get in lab groups.

Drop meter stick between forefinger and thumb of another person. See where the person grabs the stick. Calculate reaction time!
