Chapter 2 Kinematics in One Dimension Ch 2 Giancoli, PHYSICS,6/E 2004. Electronically reproduced by permission of Pearson Education, Inc., Upper Saddle River, New Jersey 1 Reference Frames Any measurement of position, displacement, velocity or acceleration must be made with respect to a defined reference framethis is first step in problem solution. Possible reference frames: Window with up = + or Ground with up = + or Un-stretched net with up = + or Stretched net with up = + or Ch 2 2 Coordinate Axis We will use a set of coordinate axis where x is horizontal and y is vertical +y -x x1

x2 +x -y Many problems will be motion in one dimension so we will plot x vs. time. Ch 2 3 Displacement +y -x x1 x2 +x -y Displacement: change in position x x2 x1 Displacement is a vector, so it has magnitude and direction. In one dimension we use + or minus sign to indicate direction.

Ch 2 4 Dont Confuse Displacement and Distance A person walks 70 m East and 30 m West. Distance traveled = 100 m Displacement = 40 m East Ch 2 or + 40 m 5 Negative Displacement In the figure below the displacement is negative. A negative displacement may indicate motion toward the West or something else depending on the situation and the coordinate system chosen. Ch 2 6 Average Speed and Velocity

distance traveled average speed time elapsed displacement average velocity (v ) time elapsed x2 x1 x v t 2 t1 t Average velocity is a vector, so it has magnitude and direction. In one dimension we use + or minus sign to indicate direction. Ch 2 7 Instantaneous Velocity instantaneous velocity is defined as the average velocity over an infinitesimally short time interval. v Ch 2 lim t 0 x

3100km 2800km 6.75h 874 km h Note: A simple average of v1 and v2 gives 890 km/h and is not correct Ch 2 10 Acceleration Average Acceleration: change in velocity divided by the time taken to make this change. v2 v1 v a t 2 t1 t m m UNITS s 2 s s

This process is called a derivation. In general you will need to know the initial assumptions, the resultant equations and how to apply them. You do not need to memorize derivations But, I could ask you to derive an equation for a

specific problem. This is very similar to an ordinary problem without a numeric answer. Ch 2 15 Motion at Constant Acceleration - Derivation Consider the special case acceleration equals a constant: a = constant Use the subscript 0 to refer to the initial conditions Thus t0 refers to the initial time and we will set t0 = 0. At this time v0 is the initial velocity and x0 is the initial displacement. At a later time t, v is the velocity and x is the displacement Ch 2 In the equations t1t0 and t2 t 16 Motion at Constant Acceleration - Derivation The average velocity during this time is: x x0 x x0 v t t0

t (Eqn.1) The acceleration is assumed to be constant v v0 a Constant t ( Eqn. 2 ) v vo t From this we can write v v0 a t Ch 2 ( Eqn. 3 ) 17 Motion at Constant Acceleration - Derivation Because the velocity increases at a uniform rate, the average velocity is the average of the initial and final velocities v v

Read the whole problem and make sure you understand it. Then read it again. 2. Decide on the objects under study and what the time interval is. 3. Draw a diagram and choose coordinate axes.

4. Write down the known (given) quantities, and then the unknown ones that you need to find. 5. What physics applies here? Plan an approach to a solution. Ch 2 20 Problem Solving Tips 6. Which equations relate the known and unknown quantities? Are they valid in this situation? Solve algebraically for the unknown quantities, and check that your result is sensible (correct dimensions). 7. Calculate the solution and round it to the appropriate number of significant figures. 8. Look at the result is it reasonable? Does it agree with a rough estimate? 9. Check the units again. Ch 2 21 Example 3. A world-class sprinter can burst out of the blocks to essentially top speed (of about 11.5 m/s) in the first 15.0 m of the race. What is the average acceleration of this sprinter, and how long does it take her to reach that speed? (Note: we have to assume a=constant) v 0 x 0

2 2 Ch 2 c 2 23 Common Mistakes Forget that sign indicates direction Assume that displacement, velocity and acceleration are always in the same direction. ( Often not true ) Use equations for motion at constant acceleration when acceleration in not constant. Confuse average quantities with instantaneous quantities

Dont worry about units, the grader will know what you mean. Dont worry if your answer isnt reasonable, your calculator wouldnt make a mistake Dont bother to organize your work Ch 2 24 Falling Objects Galileo showed that for object falling from rest with no air resistance y t2 Note that this is true when acceleration is constant Ch 2 25 Falling Objects

Galilei showed that v1 9.8 m / s near the surface of the earth at the same location v2 19.6 m / s in the absence of air resistance v3 29.4 m / s all objects fall with the same constant acceleration g, the acceleration due to gravity g = 9.8 m/s2 Note: g is a positive number. When you define your coordinate system, you can decide whether up or down is positive. Ch 2 26 Up and Down Motion For object that is thrown upward and returns to starting position: 1 y y v t gt 2 assumes up is positive
