kinematics
Kinematics
  • Study of motion without regard to the forces which produce it.
  • Motion: Described in terms of position as a function of time
    • Caused by a force [A push or a pull] – Study of dynamics
relative motion
Relative Motion
  • Frame of Reference
  • Earth
  • Newton Example page 14
  • Chair Example
distance
Distance
  • Scalar Quantity
  • Units: m
  • Total “area” covered
displacement
Displacement
  • Vector Quantity
  • Units: m
  • Straight path distance from start to finish (shortest path possible)

200 m East

1000 m West

When school gets out you go to the grocery store which is 200 m due east. After leaving the grocery store you head home 1000 m due west. Calculate your total distance and displacement.
