Agenda for today • A few practice examples on velocity, acceleration and position • Velocity and position by integration – given the acceleration as a function of time, how do I get velocity and position? • Relative Velocity

A quick problem: Airtrack with spring: start it by compressing the spring with cart. Take direction the cart is moving in as positive and bottom of the spring as the origin Draw the v versus t graph!
Background image of page 4
Cart with spring Which letter occurs when cart is – At highest point? – In contact with the spring? – Moving toward the spring? – Has zero acceleration?

Velocity from acceleration Assume the acceleration as a function of time is given, how do you calculate the velocity at time t? t a(t)
Background image of page 8
Velocity from acceleration We saw that a = dv / dt In calculus you learned that dv = a dt can be integrated to obtain: In other words, the area under the a(t) graph between times 1 and 2 equals the change in velocity v 2 -v 1 a(t) t + +...+ =velocity change v 2 v 1 = dv = v 1 v 2 a x dt t 1 t 2
