Unit 2: Motion in 2D


Chapter 3 & Chapter 4

unit objectives motion models
Unit Objectives: Motion Models
  • Recognize that an object in free fall will accelerate at a constant rate of 9.8 m/s2 downward near the surface of the earth.
    • Use kinematic equations to determine velocity or position at any time
  • Determine which model (constant velocity or constant acceleration, or varying acceleration) is appropriate to describe the horizontal and vertical component of motion of an object
unit objectives projectiles
Unit Objectives: Projectiles
  • Use appropriate kinematic equations to determine the position or velocity of a projectile at a specific point. Sketch the graph of motion for projectiles

a) y-x, y-t, x-t, vx – t, vy- t, ax-t, ay-t

  • Given information about the initial velocity and height of a projectile, determine a) time of flight, b) the point where a projectile lands, and c) velocity at impact
unit objectives vectors
Unit Objectives: Vectors
  • Graphical representation of Vectors
    • Given a vector, draw its components
    • Recognize the magnitude and direction of a vector from a vector diagram
    • Determine the sum of 2 or more vectors graphically
  • Numerical Analysis of Vectors
    • Given the magnitude and direction of a vector, determine the components using trig
    • Given the components of a vector, determine the magnitude and direction using Pythagorean Theorem and trig
    • Determine the sum of 2 or more vectors using Pythagorean Theorem and trig
    • Represent by using unit vectors i, j, & k.
unit objectives relative motion


Chapter 2: Section 26

Chapter 3 & Chapter 4

Unit Objectives: Relative Motion
  • Use vectors to perform relative velocity calculations
free fall acceleration
Free Fall Acceleration
  • Acceleration due to the force of Earth’s gravity
  • Acceleration due to gravity at the surface of the Earth is -9.8 m/s2. Negative because it points down.
free fall on the moon

In 1971, the commander of Apollo 15 confirmed this concept by dropping a hammer and a feather. Both hit the ground at the same time.

Free Fall on the Moon
  • Acceleration of a falling object is constant regardless of mass or density
free fall key points
Free Fall – Key Points
  • At max height, velocity is zero.
  • At a given height, velocity up is equal to velocity down.
  • Time up equals time down
vectors how much which way

Vectors answer both questions:

1 – How much (magnitude)?

2 – Which way (direction)?

Vectors: How much & which way?
  • When describing motion, often the questions asked are “How far?” or “How fast?”
  • However, for a person that is lost, “which way?” becomes more valuable.
scalars vs vectors




Scalars vs Vectors
  • Scalars have magnitude only
    • Quantity of something
    • Distance, speed, time, mass, temperature
  • Vectors have both magnitude and direction
    • displacement, velocity, acceleration
direction of vectors



Direction of Vectors
  • The direction of a vector is represented by the direction in which the ray points.
  • This is typically given by an angle.
    • Can also be given by using unit vectors
magnitude of vectors

If vector A represents a displacement of three kilometers to the north…



Then vector B, which is twice as long, would represent a displacement of six kilometers to the north!

Magnitude of Vectors
  • The magnitude of a vector is the size of whatever the vector represents.
  • The magnitude is represented by the length of the vector.
  • Symbolically, the magnitude is often represented as │A │
polar notation

v = 5 m/s at 135˚

Polar Notation
  • Magnitude and direction of the vector are stated separately.
    • Magnitude is a positive number and the angle is made with the positive x-axis
rectangular notation



Rectangular Notation
  • Defining a vector by its components
    • y-component: vector projection parallel to y-axis
    • x-component: vector projection parallel to x-axis
graphical addition of vectors




Graphical Addition of Vectors
  • Vectors are added graphically together head-to-tail.
  • The sum is called the resultant.
  • The inverse, is called the equilibrant .

A + B = R

component addition of vectors
Component Addition of Vectors
  • Resolve each vector into its x- and y-components.

Ax = Acos Ay = Asin

Bx = Bcos By = Bsin

  • Add the x-components together to get Rx and the y-components to get Ry.
  • Use the Pythagorean Theorem to get the magnitude of the resultant.
  • Use the inverse tangent function to get the angle.
sample problem
Sample Problem
  • Add together the following graphically and by component, giving the magnitude and direction of the resultant and of the equilibrant.
    • Vector A: 300 m @ 60o
    • Vector B: 450 m @ 100o
    • Vector C: 120 m @ -120o

Resultant: 599 m @ 1o

Equilibrant: 599 m @ 181o

unit vectors
Unit Vectors
  • Unit vectors are quantities that specify direction only. They have a magnitude of exactly one, and typically point in the x, y, or z directions.
unit vectors2
Unit Vectors
  • Instead of using magnitudes and directions, vectors can be represented by their components combined with their unit vectors.
  • Example: displacement of 30 meters in the +x direction added to a displacement of 60 meters in the –y direction added to a displacement of 40 meters in the +z direction yields a displacement of:

  • An object that moves in two dimensions under the influence of only gravity
    • Accomplished by usually launching at an angle or going off a flat surface with initial horizontal velocity.
  • Neglect air resistance
  • Follow parabolic trajectory
launch angle
Launch Angle

The components vix & viy are not necessarily positive. If an object is thrown downward, then viy is negative.

projectiles acceleration
Projectiles & Acceleration
  • If you take an object and drop, it will fall straight down and not sideways
    • ax = 0 &
    • ay=g = -9.8 m/s2
  • The vertical component of acceleration is just the familiar g of free fall while the horizontal is zero
trajectory of projectile






Trajectory of Projectile
  • This shows the parabolic trajectory of a projectile fired over level ground.
  • Acceleration points down at 9.8 m/s2 for the entire trajectory.
trajectory of projectile1
Trajectory of Projectile
  • The velocity can be resolved into components all along its path. Horizontal velocity remains constant; vertical velocity is accelerated.

Lets think about this!!!
  • A heavy ball is thrown exactly horizontally at height h above a horizontal field. At the exact instant that ball is thrown, a second ball is simply dropped from height h. Which ball hits firsts? (demo-x-y shooter)
two independent motions
Two Independent Motions

1) Uniform motion at constant velocity in the horizontal direction

2) Free-Fall motion in the vertical direction

remember to work projectile problems

Vo,y = Vo sin 


Vo,x = Vo cos 

Remember…To work projectile problems…
  • …resolve the initial velocity into components.
practice problems1
Practice Problems
  • A soccer player kicks a ball at 15 m/s at an angle of 35o above the horizontal over level ground. How far horizontally will the ball travel until it strikes the ground?
  • A cannon is fired at 100m/s at an 15o angle above the horizontal from the top of a 120 m high cliff. How long will it take the cannonball to strike the plane below the cliff? How far from the base of the cliff will it strike?
  • Students at an engineering contest use a compressed air cannon to shoot a softball at a box being hoisted straight up at 10 m/s by a crane. The cannon, tilted upward at 30 degree angle, is 100 m from the box and fires by remote control the instant the box leaves the ground. Students can control the launch speed of the softball by setting air pressure. What launch speed should the students use to hit the box?

If now, the perception of motion is from Ted’s point of view (man in the train). He uses the inside of the train as his reference frame. He sees other people in the train as stationary and objects outside the train moving back with a negative velocity.

reference frames1
Reference Frames
  • There is no right or wrong reference frame.
  • Must be clear about which reference frame is being used to assess motion.
reference frame conditions
Reference Frame Conditions
  • The frames are oriented the same, with the x and y axes parallel to each other
  • The origins of frame A & B coincide at t=0.
  • All motion is in the xy-plane, so we don’t need to consider the z-axis
  • The relative velocity (of the frames) is constant. (a = 0)

Inertial Reference Frames

inertial reference frames
Inertial Reference Frames
  • Classical Mechanics are only valid in inertial reference frames.
    • In other words, all observers would measure the same acceleration for a moving body.
    • We will discuss this in more detail when we talk about Newton’s Laws of Motion
