Distance, Time, and Average Speed
• Distance: length of the path, it depends on the path. It is a scalar quantity. It has no direction.
• Distance ≥ 0
• speed: how fast the distance is covered. It has no direction.
• Speed ≥ 0
• Average x-speed: the distance traveled ∆s divided by the time interval ∆t .

Displacement, Time, and Average Velocity
• Displacement: change in position, it is a vector quantity. Its direction is from start to end.

∆x = x2 – x1

• ∆x Displacement can be zero, positive or negative.
• positive if you move to the positive direction
• negative if you move to the negative direction.
• velocity: the rate of change in position, it is a vector quantity. It has the same direction as its motion.
• Velocity is positive if ∆x is positive
• Velocity is negative is ∆x is negative.
• Average x-velocity: the displacement, ∆x, divided by the time interval ∆t .
Average speed vs. average velocity
• Average speed is not the magnitude of average velocity.

Let's suppose Taylor covered each leg of her journey in one second. This means that the total time for her trip was 6 seconds.

Average speed = 12 m/ 6s = 2 m/s

Average velocity = 3 m / 6 s = 0.5 m/s

Direction of velocity is east

example
• What is the average velocity of the car?

Position at t2 = 4.0 s

Position at t1 = 1.0 s

+displacement

x2 = 277 m

x1 = 19 m

• Vav-x = (277 m – 19 m) / (4.0 s – 1.0 s) = 86 m/s
• The average velocity is positive because it is moving in the positive direction.

P-T graph of the car

For a displacement along the x-axis, an object’s average x-velocity vav-x equals the slope of a line connecting the corresponding points on a graph of position (x) versus time (t)

• Each of the following automobile trips takes one hour. The positive x-direction is to the east.
• A travels 50 km due east.
• B travels 50 km due west
• C travels 60 km due east, then turns around and travels 10 km due west
• D travels 70 km due east.
• E travels 20 km due west, then turns around and travels 20 km due east.
• Rank the five trips in order of average x-velocity from most positive to most negative.
• Which trips, if any, have the same average x-velocity?
• For which trip, if any, is the average x-velocity equal to zero?

• Starting from a pillar, you run 200 m east (the +x-axis) at an average speed of 5.0 m/s, and then run 280 m west at an average speed of 4.0 m/s to a post. Calculate
• Your average speed from pillar to post,

• Two runners start simultaneously form the same point on a circular 200 m track and run in the same direction. One runs at a constant speed of 6.20 m/s, and the other runs at a constant speed of 5.50 m/s.
• When will the fast one first “lap” the slower one and how far from the starting point will each have run?
• When will the fast one overtake the slower one for the second time, and how far from the starting point will they be at that instant?

Example - Walking 1/2 the time vs. Walking 1/2 the distance
• Tim and Rick both can run at speed vr and walk at speed vw, with vw < vr. They set off together on a journey of distance D. Rick walks half of the distance and runs the second half. Tim walks half of the time and runs the other half.

a) Draw a graph showing the positions of both Tim and Rick versus time.

b) Write two sentences explaining who wins and why.

• Tim wins because he takes short time to cover the same distance as Rick.
• tRick = (D ∕ 2)/vr + (D/2)/ vw

• Instantaneous velocity
• Determine velocity using x-t graph.
Instantaneous velocity
• Instantaneous velocity: the velocity at any specific instant of time or specific point along the path.
• Instantaneous velocity is a vector quantity, its magnitude is the speed, its direction is the same as its motion’s direction.
• How long is an instant?
• In physics, an instant refers to a single value of time.

P2

P1

• To find the instantaneous velocity at point P1, we move the second point P2 closer and closer to the first point P1 and computer the average velocity vav-x = ∆x / ∆t over the ever shorter displacement and time interval. Both ∆x and ∆t become very small, but their ratio does not necessarily become small.

Example 2.1
• A cheetah is crouched 20 m to the east of an observer’s vehicle. At time t = 0 the cheetah charges an antelope and begins to run along a straight line. During the first 2.0 s of the attach, the cheetah’s coordinate x varies with time according to the equation x = 20 m + (5.0 m/s2)t2.
• Find the displacement of the cheetah between t1 = 1.0 s and t2 = 2.0 s
• Find the average velocity during the same time interval.
• Find the instantaneous velocity at time t1 = 1.0 s by taking ∆t = 0.1 s, then ∆t = 0.01 s, then ∆t = 0.001 s.
• Derived a general expression for the instantaneous velocity as a function of time, and from it find vx at t = 1.0 s and t = 2.0 s

2.3 average and instantaneous acceleration
• The average acceleration of the particle as it moves from P1 to P2 is a vector quantity, whose magnitude equals to the change in velocity (v2 – v1) divided by the time interval.

Velocity describes how fast a body’s position change with time.

Acceleration describes how fast a body’s velocity change, it tells how speed and direction of motion are changing.

example

Instantaneous acceleration
• the instantaneous acceleration is the limit of average acceleration as the time interval approaches zero.
Example 2.3
• Suppose the x-velocity vx of a car at any time t is given by the equation: vx = 60 m/s + (.50 m/s2)t2
• Find the change in x-velocity of the car in the time interval between t1 = 1.0 s and t2 = 3.0 s.
• Find the average x-acceleration between t1 = 1.0 s and t2 = 3.0 s.
• Find the average x-acceleration at time t1 = 1.0 s by taking ∆t to be first 0.1 s, then 0.01 s, then 0.001 s.
• Derive an expression for the instantaneous x-acceleration at any time, and use it to find the x-acceleration at t= 1.0 s and t = 3.0 s.

Finding acceleration on a vx-t graph
• We can interpret the average and the instantaneous velocity in terms of the slope of a graph of position versus time.
• In the same way, we can interpret average and instantaneous x-acceleration by using vx-t graph.
• The average acceleration aav-x = ∆ v / ∆t during this interval equals to the slope of the line between points (t1,v1) and (t2, v2).
• The instantaneous acceleration at point p equals to the tangent of the curve at point p.
Caution: the signs of x-acceleration and x-velocity
• How can you determine if object is speeding up or slowing down?
• If the object’s velocity and acceleration have the same sign, then the object is speeding up
• If they have opposite sign, then the object is slowing down

If we ignore air friction and the effects due to the earth’s rotation, all objects fall and rise at the constant acceleration.

The constant acceleration of a freely falling body is called the acceleration due to gravity, and we use letter g to represent its magnitude. Near the earth’s surface g = 9.8 m/s/s = 32 ft/s/s

On the surface of the moon, g = 1.6 m/s/s

On the surface of the sun, g = 270 m/s/s

a = -g

t = 1.0 s

x = -4.9 m; v = -9.8 m/s

t = 2.0 s

x = -19.6 m; v = -19.6 m/s
