Kinematics The branch of Physics that studies MOTION without relating it to the forces that causes it. No question “WHY” is asked! Objectives: To find the kinematic quantities (position, displacement, velocity, and acceleration) of a traveling particle and their relationships. 4

Let’s denote the direction of the straight-line path by the coordinate axis s . The position of the particle at any instant, relative to the origin, O, is defined by the position vector r , or the scalar s . s can be positive or negative. Typical units for r and s are meters (m) or feet (ft). The displacement of the particle is a vector and is defined as its change in position. Vector form: r = r’ - r Scalar form: s = s’ - s The total distance traveled by the particle, s T is a positive scalar that represents the total length of the path over which the particle travels.
