8 1 the language of motion1

8.1 THE LANGUAGE OF MOTION

  • Many words are used when describing motion.

  • Many of these words have specific meanings in science.

  • Some common words used to describe motion include:

    • Distance

    • Time

    • Speed

    • Position


8 1 the language of motion cont

8.1 THE LANGUAGE OF MOTION cont...

Describe the motion of the soccer ball before and after it is kicked.

What key words did you use when describing this situation?


Direction makes a difference

DIRECTION MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Every time you use a map or give directions, you are using vectors.

  • Quantities that are measured or counted have a magnitude but may also contain a direction.

    • Magnitude refers to the size of a measurement or the amount you are counting.


Direction makes a difference cont

DIRECTION MAKES A DIFFERENCE cont…

  • Quantities that describe magnitude but do not include direction are called scalar quantities or scalars.

    • Example: 25 seconds

  • Quantities that describe magnitude and also include direction are called vector quantities or vectors.

    • Example: 5 km north


Distance and position

DISTANCE AND POSITION

  • Distance (d) is a scalar quantity that describes thelength of a path between two points or locations.

    • Example: A person ran a distance of 400 m.

  • Position ( ) is a vector quantity that describes a specific point relative to a reference point.

    • Example: The school is 3.0 km east of my house.


Distance and position cont

DISTANCE AND POSITION cont…

  • The SI unit for both distance and position is metres, m.

A car leaves home and drives 10 km to the store and then returns home. The car has driven a total distance of 20 km but its final displacement is 0 km.


Time interval and position

TIME INTERVAL AND POSITION

  • Time (t) is a concept that describes when an event occurs.

    • Initial time (ti) is when the event began.

    • Final time (tf) is when the event finished.

  • Time interval is the difference between the final and initial times.


Time interval and position cont

TIME INTERVAL AND POSITION cont…

  • Time interval is calculated by:

The time interval to move from the fire hydrant to the sign is calculated by:

The position of the sign is 7 m east of the tree.


Displacement and distance

DISPLACEMENT AND DISTANCE

  • Displacement describes the straight-line distance and direction from one point to another.

    • Displacement describes how much an object’s position has changed.

  • Displacement is equal to the final position minus the initial position.


Displacement and distance cont

DISPLACEMENT AND DISTANCE cont…

  • The SI unit for displacement is metres, m.

Between 2 s and 5 s the skateboarder’s displacement is 5 m [E]. The skateboarder’s distance travelled is 5 m.


Watch for signs

WATCH FOR SIGNS

When using vector quantities, opposite directions are given opposite signs.


Watch for signs cont

WATCH FOR SIGNS cont…

Common sign conventions

Between 0 s and 15 s the person’s displacement is

= 10 m [W] – 5 m [E]

= -10 m – 5 m

= -15 m

= 15 m [W]

What distance did the person walk in this same time interval?


Uniform motion

UNIFORM MOTION

  • Objects in uniform motion travel equal displacements in equal time intervals.

  • Objects in uniform motion do not speed up, slow down, or change direction.


Uniform motion cont

UNIFORM MOTION cont…

The position of the ball in this photo is shown at equal time intervals. How would you determine if this motion is uniform motion?


Graphing uniform motion

GRAPHING UNIFORM MOTION

A straight line passing through the plotted data indicates uniform motion.

Motion of an object can be analyzed by drawing a position-time graph.

A position-time graph plots position data on the vertical axis (y axis) and time data on the horizontal axis (x axis).


Graphing uniform motion cont

GRAPHING UNIFORM MOTION cont…

  • A best-fit line is a smooth curve or straight line that most closely fits the general shape outlined by the points.

  • Uniform motion is represented by a straight line on a position-time graph.

    • The straight line passes through all the plotted points.


Slope

SLOPE

  • The slope of a graph refers to whether a line is horizontal or goes up or down at an angle.

  • Positive slope

    • Slants up to the right

    • Indicates motion in the direction of the positive y axis


Slope cont

SLOPE cont…

Take the Section 8.1 Quiz

  • Zero slope

    • Horizontal line

    • Indicates that the object is stationary

  • Negative slope

    • Slants down to the right

    • Indicates motion in the direction of the negative y axis


Distance

Distance

What does the word “distance” mean?

-write a short definition

-the length of a path between two points

Does “distance” give any indication of direction?


Displacement

Displacement

  • Describes the straight-line distance and direction from one point to another

  • When you run around a running track and return to where you started

    • your distance is ….

      • 400 m

    • Your displacement is…

      • 0 m


8 1 the language of motion

Distance is a scalar quantity… has only magnitude (size or number)…no direction

Displacement is a vectorquantity….has both magnitude and direction

O km 2 km 10 km


8 1 the language of motion

  • In Physics a reference point is often given a position of “0”.

  • Objects to the right are “+”

  • Objects to the left are “-”

-3m -2m -1m 0 1m 2m 3m

Dd

  • D = “change in”

  • Dd = df-di

    final displacement – initial displacement

    • -18 km

  • What does the “-” mean?

    • - can mean “to the left” or “West”

      Describe the position of each car with respect to a reference point.

Calculating the slope of the position time graph

Calculating the Slope of the Position-Time Graph

Converting between m s and km h

Converting between m/s and km/h

  • To convert from km/h to m/s

    • Change km to m: 1 km = 1000 m

    • Change h to s: 1 h = 3600 s

  • Therefore multiply by 1000 and divide by 3600

    or

  • Divide the speed in km/h by 3.6 to obtain the speed in m/s.

    For example, convert 75 km/h to m/s.

Speed zone limits are stated in kilometres per hour (km/h).
