Independence of vertical and horizontal motions • The kinematics equations that we derived for 1D motion (with a = const) hold in 2D. • But the equations apply separately to each component of 2D motion. • BIG PHYSICS CONCEPT: Perpendicular components of motion are independent of each other. => Giving an object velocity or acceleration in the horizontal direction does not affect how fast it falls to the ground. drop shoot
Kinematics Equations in 2D => for motion in 2D the individual components of motion obey the following equations as long as a x and a y are constants: v y 2 = v 0 y 2 + 2 a y Δ y Δ y = v 0 y t + 1 2 a y t 2 Δ y = 1 2 ( v 0 y + v y ) t v y = v 0 y + a y t v x 2 = v 0 x 2 + 2 a x Δ x Δ x = v 0 x t + 1 2 a x t 2 Δ x = 1 2 ( v 0 x + v x ) t v x = v 0 x + a x t Note: subscripts now denote variables that are in the x and y directions (except for t - the link btw the two sets of equations).
