Motion and Velocity

Ft. Per Second

Meters/Sec.

Displacement in Time and Space

MPH

Work = Force x Distance

Machines Produce Work by Transforming Energy or Changing the Direction or Distance Through Which a Force Acts

Motion or Movement is a Change In Position Called VelocityDisplacement

Speed Equations Velocity

An object’s speed is a function of Displacement(change in position) and Time(change in time between positions)

A simple and useful version of the Speed Equation Looks Like This

You Can Rewrite the Equation Like This

Answer: This Thing Traveled a total of 175 Feet

Distance = Speed x Time. Therefore the total distance is the sum of the areas of each of the 5 rectangles! Try it….It works.

Another Difference Between VelocitySpeed and Velocity

Scalar Quantities (One Number)

Vector Quantities (More Than One Number)

One Gallon

Distance

Speed (MPH)

Voltage

Pant Sizes(Waist and Length)

Velocity (Speed and Direction)

Velocity is a Vector Quantity

Speed is a Scalar Quantity

6 Centimeters

A Vector Describing a Velocity of 6 MPH is Drawn With a Length of 6 Units

The Length of a Vector is Proportional to It’s Magnitude

Vectors Can Describe Displacement

10 miles East

Point C

Point B

Total Displacement

12.2 miles North East of the Starting Position

7 miles North

The Black Dashed Line is called the Resultant

Point A

The magnitude of the Resultant Vector is found using the Pythagorean Theorem.

A2 + B2 = C2
