Ph 111.01 Fall 2008 Topics Covered in Homework PS 1. Unit conversion, speed of light PS 2. Dimensional analysis; displacement vs distance; d=vt PS 3. Distance vs displacement; average speed and average velocity PS 4. Motion in one dimension with uniform acceleration; graphical relation between position, velocity and acceleration PS 5. Motion in 1D: using , varying initial and final conditions. 22 0 2 vv a =+Δ x PS 6. Motion in uniform gravitational field; graphing - distance traveled equals area under v vs t graph; vectors - graphing, converting length and angle to x and y coordinates, and back ((x,y) (r, θ )). PS 7. Projectile motion: time in the air, maximum height, range; components of initial velocity PS 8. Newton's third law and action and reaction pairs; F = ma (given force and mass, calculate acceleration, then solve the resulting motion) PS 9. Motion in gravity on another planet; action and reaction pairs operating on objects of different mass; adding vector forces PS 10.
