DO NOW!!

In Aesop’s fable “The Tortoise and the Hare” a tortoise and a hare run have a race. The hare bounds far ahead of the tortoise and then, sure of victory, lies down to rest under a tree. The tortoise passes the resting hare and wins the race.

1.) Which animal ran faster?

2) How does the motion of a car racing on an oval track change?


Ch 2 sec 1 describing motion

Ch. 2 / Sec. 1DescribingMotion


Motion

Event that involves a change in the position or location of something.

When it an object changes its position relative to a reference point

Relative – it is described compared to a REFERENCE POINT

Motion


Distance

Distance

  • How far an object moves

  • Measured in meter or kilometers

    • Shorter distances (m) (1000m = 1km)

    • Longer distances (km)

  • Don’t forget about conversion

Examples of UsesApproximate Speed

km/srocket escaping Earth's atmosphere11.2 km/s

km/hcar traveling at highway speed100 km/h

cm/yrgeological plate movements2cm/yr - 17 cm/yr


Displacement

Displacement

  • The distance & direction of an objects change in position from the starting point


Speed

Speed

  • The distance of an object travels per unit of time

  • Speed = d/t (distance divided by time)

Remember Me!!


Constant speed

Constant Speed

  • Speed that does not change

    • Instantaneous speed that does not change


Average speed

Average Speed

  • Total distance traveled divided by the total time of travel

    • Describes speed of motion when it is changing

    • Can be calculated using relationships among speed, distance and time

    • Speed = total distance/ total travel time

      • Still use triangle


Speed instantaneous speed

SpeedInstantaneous Speed

  • Speed at any instant


Instantaneous speed

Instantaneous Speed

  • Speed at a given point in time

  • When an object speeds up /slows down is changing
