Describing Motion – Kinematics in One Dimension

Topic Review on "Title":

Kinematics: 
The mathematical description of motion without any reference to the cause.  The cause of this motion will be described in a later tutorial.

Vector: 
A quantity that has magnitude, size, and direction. Velocity and displacement are examples.

Scalar: 
A quantity that has only magnitude, or size.  Speed, distance, and time are examples.

Instantaneous velocity: 
The speed of an object at any particular instant.

Average velocity: The total distance traveled divided by the total time of travel.

Acceleration: The rate of change of velocity.  Acceleration describes how fast an objects speed is changing per amount of time.

Kinematic Equations:
Formulas that relate the variables of motion.
v=d/t
a = Δv/Δt=(vf-vi)/t
d=vit+at2/2
vf2=vi2+2ad
acceleration due to gravity = -9.8 m/s2

Free Fall:  Motion where gravity is the only force acting on an object.  Gravity will accelerate an object at -9.8 meters per second per second.

"Title" Tutorial Summary :

This tutorial describes motion in one direction.  Motion at a constant rate will be discussed.  In this type of motion the velocity remains the same.  Accelerated or changing motion will also be analyzed.  An example of this is a falling object that continually picks up speed as it descends.  The concept of vectors and scalars will be applied.  Various kinematic equations will be used to calculate various quantities in physics problems.  General problem solving hints will be applied to these formulas.


Tutorial Features:

Specific Tutorial Features:
• Problem-solving techniques are used to work out the example problems.
• Easy explanation for sometimes confusing physics formulas.

Series Features:
• Concept map showing inter-connections of new concepts in this tutorial and those previously introduced.
• Definition slides introduce terms as they are needed.
• Visual representation of concepts
• Animated examples—worked out step by step
• A concise summary is given at the conclusion of the tutorial.
