**Key Equations ** Displacement: an objects change in position given by final minus initial coordinates. Average Velocity V = x/t Instantaneous Velocity V = lim x/t t→0

**Acceleration** • Average Acceleration: a = v/t • Instantaneous Acceleration: of an object at a certain time equals the slope of a velocity-time graph at that instant. • One dimension motion with constant acceleration: • V = vo+at • V = (vo+v)/2 • X = vot+.5at2 • V2 = vo2+2ax

**Projectile Motion ** Problem Solving Strategy • Select a coordinate system • Resolve the initial velocity vector into x and y components • Treat the horizontal motion and the vertical motion independently • Analyze the horizontal motion of the projectile with constant velocity • Analyze vertical motion of the projectile with constant acceleration

**Equations for Projectile Motion** x = vxot vy = vyo-gt y = vyot-.5gt2 vy2 = vyo2-2gy g = 9.8 m/s2 (on earth…but you can do projectile motion on other planets if you know the local value of g. Also, some electric field problems can be solved in the same manner as projectile problems!)

**Relative Velocity** Different displacements and velocities may be observed for objects in motion depending on the frame of reference. For example: A mouse is running at 1.2 m/s backwards on a canoe that is moving forward at 3.4 m/s on a calm pond. Vmc= -1.2 m/s (velocity of mouse relative to canoe) Vcp= +3.4 m/s (velocity of canoe relative to pond) Vmp=vmc+vcp=+2.2 m/s (velocity of mouse relative to the pond)
