Kinematics Kinematics - the science that deals with the description of otion without concern about what causes hat motion motion without concern about what causes that motion. Linear Kinematics - motions along straight lines. Uses four physical concepts: displacement, velocity, acceleration and time. There are four equations of Kinematics connecting three out of the four concepts above.

Displacement (vector) DISPLACEMENT ( x) = the vector connecting the position (vector) at (initial) time t with the position vector) x at a later time t Δ G GG 00 x ,at (initial) time t , with the position (vector) x at a later time t. x = x+ x x = xx ;m Δ G G [ ] SI x x+ x ; m AGNITUDE (of Δ⇒ isplacement) = shortest distance betwee thetwo MAGNITUDE (of 0 displacement) shortest distance between the two positions x and x.
