Physics 125 Discussion #2 1 Problem 1: One-Dimensional Motion A car accelerates uniformly in one dimension from 5 m/s to 30 m/s in 10 s. (1) First, define your coordinate system. (2) Write out the know factors: Initial velocity, _ __________ 0 = v h Final velocity, _ __________ = v h Time interval, Δ t = ____________ (3) What is the car’s acceleration? (4) What is the car’s average velocity for this time interval? (5) How far does the car travel during this time?

Physics 125 Discussion #2 2 Problem 2: Two Bodies with Different Accelerations A motorist traveling with constant velocity of 15 m/s (about 34 mph) passes a school- crossing corner, where the speed limit is 10 m/s (about 22 mph). Just as the motorist passes, a police officer on a motorcycle stopped at the corner starts off in pursuit with constant acceleration of 3.0 m/s 2 . (1) First, define our coordinate system. Let’s take the origin at the corner and the positive direction to the right. a.
