Displacement with constant acceleration

Displacement with constant acceleration

How far, how fast?


Review of v avg

Review of vavg

  • We have seen a way to calculate vavg already:

    vavg= Δx / t

  • Let’s look at the Old School way to find an average….


Finding an average

Finding an average…

  • If you wanted to find the average of these numbers:

    5,3,7 and 5

    You would just add them up and divide by 4

Mmmk.


Finding an average1

Finding an average…

  • You can do the same thing with velocities

  • Suppose a car accelerates from 0m/s for 30 sec at 1m/s2.

That’s gonna take forever to do!


Finding an average2

Finding an average….

  • OR… There’s a much easier way:

  • If acceleration is constant (it always will be for us.) average the first and last velocities and you get the same answer.

Oh, good!


Two equations

Two equations

  • We now have two ways to find vavg :

  • Now let’s put them together…

Uhhhh…

Ok, got it!


Example

Example

  • A racing car reaches a speed of 42 m/s. It then begins a uniform negative acceleration, using its parachute and braking system, and comes to rest 5.5s later. Find the distance that the car travels during braking.


Example1

Example

  • A racing car reaches a speed of 42 m/s. It then begins a uniform negative acceleration, using its parachute and braking system, and comes to rest 5.5s later. Find the distance that the car travels during braking.

  • Givens: vi=42 m/st= 5.5 s vf=0 m/sΔx= ?


Example2

Example

  • A racing car reaches a speed of 42 m/s. It then begins a uniform negative acceleration, using its parachute and braking system, and comes to rest 5.5s later. Find the distance that the car travels during braking.

  • Givens: vi=42 m/st= 5.5 s vf=0 m/sΔx= ?

  • Formula:
