Dr. Derrick Boucher

Assoc. Prof. of Physics

Session 3-4, Chapter 4

Chapter 4

• Simple Projectile Motion

• Circular motion

• Centripetal Acceleration in Uniform Circular Motion

• Rotational/Translational comparisons

Chapter 4 Practice Problems

Chap 4: 7, 37, 47, 49, 61, 65

Unless otherwise indicated, all practice material is from the “Exercises and Problems” section at the end of the chapter. (Not “Questions.”)

2-D Kinematics

• The x and y components of the motion are treated separately.

• Do not mix up x and y data when setting up and solving equations.

• Good strategy: separate paper into “X” and “Y” columns.

• Certain events can connect x and y motion at particular moments (certain t values).

2-D Kinematics Equations

General 2-D motion

“Projectile” motion

ay = -g, ax = 0

Example problem

Chapter 4 #10 (p. 120)

Circular Motion

• Radius is constant (or unimportant)

• “Position” is an angle, in radians, θ

• Velocity is radians per second, ω (that’s “omega”, not “curly double-u.”)

• Acceleration can be along the tangent to the circle, at , or in a radial or “centripetal” direction, ac .
