This is a map of the Rio de Janeiro Grand Prix course. If the motorcyles travel at constant speed around the track, where do they experience the largest accelerations? 1: Morette 3: Vitoria 5: Juncao 2: Molykote 4: Nonato
Basics of 2D motion Components of net acceleration along motion speed things up Components of net acceleration opposite motion slow things down Components of net acceleration perpendicular to motion turn things a

Projectile motion Simple 2D motion with only one constant acceleration Start by leaving out air friction so the only force is gravity Gravity is constant, and always downward It will affect only the vertical motion Galileo provided the first accurate explanation: I propose to set forth those properties which belong to a body whose motion is compounded of two other motions, namely one uniform and one naturally accelerated….This is the kind of motion seen in a projectile….Imagine any particle projected along a horizontal plane without friction…This particle will move along this plane with a motion that is uniform and perpetual, providing the plane has no limits. But if the plane is limited and elevated, then the moving particle...will, on passing over the edge of the plane, acquire, in addition to its previous uniform and perpetual motion, a

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
