Unformatted text preview: A M Kolchin/ SAR Physics
Also available at: www.phys.uﬂ.edu/˜ kolchin/SAR physics REVIEW NOTES I.
Things to cover:
(a) describe its motion
(b) describe directions of pull
2. Kinematics Introduction
(a) Deﬁne: x,v,a,t
(b) Deﬁne meaning of a function
(c) Simple numerical examples.
3. Problem solving technique
(a) translating a problem to math
(b) solving problem in math
(c) translating the answer back to English
4. Kinematic Graphs
(a) position vs time:
average slope between two points gives average
1 (b) acceleration vs. time:
area under the curve between two times (that
is, a time interval) gives the change in speed
during that time interval.
(c) velocity vs. time:
• slope of curve gives the acceleration
• area under the curve between two times (that
is, a time interval) gives the change in position during that time interval.
5. Worked problems (Graphs)
(a) Given a problem, express motion graphically.
(b) Given a graph, interpret motion.
6. Still to Cover
(a) +/− directions within one dimension
(c) two-dimensional projectile motion. ...
