3 Change and Motion A stationary ball on the ground. Same position at all times. Velocity=0. A skateboarder rolling on a sidewalk. Images are equally spaced. Velocity=consta A sprinter starting the 100 meter dash. 5 Image spacing grows. Velocity increasing. A car stopping for a red light. Image spacing shrinks. Velocity decreasing. The actual images can be replaced by “dots” showing successive positions. Motion Diagrams 6

4 Position & Displacement A student on a bicycle is moving in a straight line. The coordinate axis consists of a line along the path of the bicycle. A point on this line chosen as the origin O . Other points are assigned a number x , the value of x being proportional to the distance from O . The numbers assigned to points to the right of O are positive, as shown, and those assigned to points to the left of O are negative. When the bicycle travels from point x i to point x f , its displacement is: Δ x = x f x i . Interpreting a Position Graph Motion of a car 8
