Kinematics a study
of how objects move
AP Physics 1 - Ms. Mitchell
Introduction
The study of the motion of objects, and the
related concepts of force and energy, form
the field called mechanics.

GRAPHICAL ANALYSIS
OF MOTION
Describing Motion
The study of one-dimensional kinematics is concerned
with the multiple means by which the motion of objects
can be represented. Such means include the use of
words, graphs, equations, and diagrams.
