Unformatted text preview: seconds, then moves to the left at a slower constant velocity. Modeling Workshop Project 2002 1 Unit II Reading-Motion Maps v2.0 Consider the interpretation of the motion map below. At time t = 0, cyclist A starts moving to the right at constant velocity, at some position to the right of the origin. Cyclist B starts at the origin and travels to the right at a constant, though greater velocity. At t = 3 s, B overtakes A (i.e., both have the same position, but B is moving faster). A graphical representation of the behavior of cyclists A and B would like this: You could also represent the behavior algebraically as follows: x = + , = , where v B > v A Throughout this semester, you will be representing the behavior of objects in motion in multiple ways: diagramatically (motion maps), graphically and algebraically.
