Motion

Pg. 322-332 in your textbook.

What is Motion?
• All matter in the universe is constantly in motion, from the revolution of Earth around the Sun to electrons moving around the nucleus of an atom.
• Anything in motion changes position.
Speed
• Speed is the distance traveled divided by the time it takes to travel that distance.
• Speed is calculated from the following equation:
Speed Practice #1
• This motorcycle travels 100-m in 10.2 seconds. What is the speed of this motorcycle to the nearest 10th?
• Answer: 9.8 m/s
Speed Practice #2
• A runner completes a 400-m race in 43.9 s. In a 100-m race, he finishes in 10.4 s. In which race was his speed faster (nearest 10th)?
• Answer: The runner’s speed was 9.1 m/s in the 400-m race and 9.6 m/s in the 100-m race. Therefore, he is faster in the 100-m race.
Velocity
• Velocity is the speed of an object and the direction of its motion.
• This would be used, for example, if you were hiking in the woods since you would want to know your speed AND the direction you were moving.
• Velocity is calculated using the speed equation AND direction.
Velocity Practice
• Calculate the velocity of a dancer who moves 5 ft to the left of the stage over 15 min (nearest hundredth).
• Answer: 0.33 ft/min left
Acceleration
• Acceleration is the change in velocity divided by the time it takes for the change to occur.
• Acceleration is calculated from the following equation:
Acceleration Practice #1
• A bicycle accelerates from rest to 6 mi/s in 2 s. What is the bicycle’s acceleration?
• Answer: 3 mi/s2.
Acceleration Practice #2
• Find the acceleration of a train whose speed decreases from 17 m/s to 7 m/s in 120 s (nearest thousandth).
• Answer: -0.083 m/s2
