2D - 1 Motion in 2D Velocity and acceleration are vectors . They can have any direction. When we are considering motion in the xy plane, these vectors can point anywhere in the plane. A common example of motion in 2D is. .. Projectile motion Consider a projectile fired from a cannon, with an initial velocity 0 v G with a direction of θ above the horizontal. y 0x 0 0y 0 vv c o s s i n = θ = θ Acceleration is a vector, and can have any direction. But in the special case of acceleration due solely to gravity , the acceleration is always straight down . Review of 1D motion: vx a, v, tt ∆∆ == special case: a = constant From these 3 equations (above), we can derive (a) o vv a =+ t o ) (b) 2 oo xx v t( 1 / 2 ) a t =+ + (c) 22 o vv2 a ( x x (d) o v 2 + = x o , v o = initial position, initial velocity x, v = position, velocity at time t y x a x = 0 a y = –g a v o x v x θ v y 10/16/2006 © University of Colorado at Boulder
