to describe the position of a point in
space
Coordinate system consists of
A fixed reference point called the origin
Specific axes with scales and labels

Linear Momentum
The
linear momentum of a particle, or an
object that can be modeled as a particle, of

Motion in Two Dimensions
Motion in Two Dimensions
Using + or signs is not always sufficient to fully
describe motion in more than one dimension
Vectors can be used to more fully describe mot

Motion in One Dimension
Kinematics
Describes
motion while ignoring the agents
that caused the motion
For now, will consider motion in one
