ISP209s10 Lecture 5 -8- Homework Problem Traveling Car A B C D The first elbow is “sharper” than the second one. I.e., its slope is changing faster as you go around the bend. Slowing Down Speeding up
ISP209s10 Lecture 5 -9- Homework Problem Traveling Car A B C D Therefore, the magnitude of acceleration in the first elbow is GREATER than that of the 2nd elbow. Slowing Down Speeding up

ISP209s10 Lecture 5 -10- History of astronomy in 1 slide Ptolomy : Earth-centered model of the motion of planets that worked well enough using epicycles. Copernicus: 1st Sun-centered model ** . Much simpler than Ptolomy’s w/equal accuracy Brahe : greatly improved accuracy of measurements and thus showed deficiencies in previous models Kepler : devised his three laws of planetary motion with the Sun
