Lecture 4 Purdue University, Physics 220 2 Overview • Last Lecture – Position: your coordinates – Displacement: Δ x = change of position – Velocity: rate of change of position • average : Δ x/ Δ t • instantaneous: slope of x vs. t – Acceleration: rate of change of velocity • average: Δ v/ Δ t • instantaneous: slope of v vs. t • Today – More on Kinematics – Dynamics

Lecture 4 Purdue University, Physics 220 5 Not 0 since V f and V i are not the same ! = 0 A ball is thrown straight up in the air and returns to its initial position. During the time the ball is in the air, which of the following statements is true? A) Both average acceleration and average velocity are zero. B) Average acceleration is zero but average velocity is not zero. C) Average velocity is zero but average acceleration is not zero. D) Neither average acceleration nor average velocity are zero. V ave = Δ y/ Δ t = (y f – y i ) / (t f – t i ) a ave = Δ v/ Δ t = (v f – v i ) / (t f – t i ) Question
