Kinematics Dynamics We begin here in 1D Note that vx0 is the same throughout the motion of the object vx 0 = v0 cos v y 0 = v0 sin KINEMATICS to describe "motion" Kinematicsdescribes motion
Dynamicsconcerned with the cause of motion Measurable quantities needed to describe motion are Displacement: x=xfx0 measured in units of distance (e.g., meters) Time or time interval, t=t t f 0 measured in sec x = xfxi in fact this is a Vector Two possible directions +/Coordinate space and time x(t) vs t for armadillo Put them together!!!! Get a rate of change Average Velocity Slope of x versus t graph
vavg x( t1 )  x( t0 ) x1  x0 = t1  t0 t1  t0 Freedom to choose "origin of time" If initial time is chosen to be t=0 vavg = x( t1 )  x( 0) x1  x0 t1 t1 So let t1=t !!! vavg x( t )  x0 = t Sample problem 21 "Average velocity at an instant" let the time interval be come very very small "Calculus 101" the derivative graphically t dt
Tangent at P is derivative of curve evaluated at t1 Instantaneous velocity, v(t) slope of the displacement curve at a point x( t ) dx( t ) v( t ) = lim t dt t 0 Sample problem 22 Graphical representation of motion x(t)position v(t)velocity a(t)acceleration Relationship btwn x and v: Calc. 001
Area under velocity plot is the displacement! x = vav t =Area ??!!! Will Generalize.......... x  x0 = v( t ) dt 0 t Average Acceleration acceleration rate of change of velocity units are distance/time2 average acceleration is the average slope on a velocity vs. time graph average acceleration is the rate of change of the slope on a displacement vs. time graph aave v( t1 )  v( 0) v( t ) = t1  0 t Instantaneous Acceleration
If the time interval between velocity measurements becomes vanishingly small, the acceleration is instantaneous Instantaneous acceleration is the slope of the velocity curve at a point v( t ) dv( t ) a ( t ) = lim t dt t 0 Example 24 x(t)=4  27t + t3 a) v(t) ? b) Is there a time, t when v(t) = 0 ? c) Plot results !

MOTION IN ONE DIMENSION Special considerations Positive and negative values have meaning (use a coordinate axis or number line) Problems can have as complex a variability as necessary dv a= dt dx v= dt implies v = a (t ) d t and implies x = v t d t () Calculus 102 Equations of Motion constant Acceleration
