Uniform accelerated motion
Uniform Accelerated Motion

  • Motion with constant acceleration

    • Straight line

    • Same direction


Equations for uniform accelerated motion
Equations for Uniform Accelerated Motion

  • Velocity v= vo+ at

  • Position x= xo + vot + ½ at2

  • v2 = vo2 + 2a(x-xo)

    Remember:

    Displacement= Dx = x-xo

  • vavg= ½ (vo+v)

  • Dx = ½ (vo+ v)t

  • Assume that ti=0


Example of position vs time positive acceleration

Area under line = Change in Velocity


How do we derive Dx = ½ (vo+ v)t

from the graph?

How do we derive x x o v o t at 2
How do we derive x= xo + vot + ½ at2?

Hint: Start with Dx = ½ (vo+ v)t

and then substitute for vthat v= vo+at.


How do we derive v 2 v o 2 2a x x o
How do we derive v2 = vo2 + 2a(x-xo)?

  • Hint: Start with Dx = ½ (vo+ v)t

    then substitute for t= (v– vo) /a


Problem 1
Problem 1

A ball initially stationary, accelerates at 0.25m/s2 down a 2m inclined plane. It then rolls up another incline, where it comes to rest after rolling up 1m.

a) What is the speed of the ball at the bottom of the incline and how much time did this take?

b) What is the acceleration along the second plane?

Answer: a) 1m/s, 4sec, b) -0.5m/s2


Problem 2
Problem 2

A Mustang travelling with a constant velocity of 35m/s, passes a stationary police car.

The reaction time of the officer was 2.5sec and he then accelerates at 5.0 m/s2 to catch the Mustang. How long does it take for the police car to catch the Mustang?

Answer: 15.8sec
