Kinematics vs dynamics
What: the motion of objects is governed by kinematics
Why: the causes of motion is a subject called dynamics
The big complication: in the real world, frict

Uniform circular motion
Did you feel like you are going
in circles?
You are! Earths orbit is
circular motion
and many other things
Consider an object moving in a
circle wi

Measurements
Your friend measured something, and found it
was 11
What did she measure?
How do you know if it was a mass, a distance, a
temperature, or a current?
We need u

Vectors
Up until now, vectors were handled by a number being
plus or minus
But for proper direction in 2D or 3D we need real vector
notations
Example: a position vector
