Displacement and Velocity • An object ! s change in position is its displacement – Displacement: ! x = x final - x initial • Average velocity is the displacement per unit time: v ave = x final ! x initial t final ! t initial = x 2 ! x 1 t 2 ! t 1 = " x " t I"#946 2/2

Inertia and Mass • Inertia is a measure of an object ! s resistance to changes in its motion • This resistance to change depends only the object ! s mass – The mass of an object is a measure of the amount of matter it contains • SI unit of mass is kg • Mass is an intrinsic property of an object – It is independent of the object ! s location – It is independent of the object ! s velocity or acceleration – Independent of it’s composition or any other property I"#946 2/(

! s Second Law Multiple forces act on an object simultaneously The total force on the object is the sum of these individual forces, The acceleration of an object with mass m is then given by: – Newton ! s Second Law is the link between force and motion – It tells us how an object will move when acted upon by a force or a collection of forces total = !
