Presentation Transcript

### Speed and Motion

• 03 Oct 2012, P. 26

• How fast is an airplane traveling if it takes 2.5 hours to go from Minneapolis to New York (1200 miles).

• Agenda

• Measuring and recording speed data.

• How fast do you walk/run 10 meters?

• 04 Oct 2012, P. 27

• A train is moving at 50 miles per hour.

• How many miles did it travel in 2 hours?

• The train needs to travels 500 miles. How long will it take to travel this distance?

• Remember: Speed = Distance divided by time

• 05 Oct 2012, P. 27

• Wendy is riding her bicycle downhill at 15 miles per hour. What is her speed? What is her velocity?

• How fast is Wendy going if she traveled 3 miles in a half of an hour?

• Make a table in your science notebook, P. 28.

• You will be working in groups of 4.

• Measure out 10 meters.

• Mark start and end with a small piece of colored tape.

• Start the timer.

• Walk heel-to-toe for the entire distance.

• Stop timer at the end.

• Complete 10 meter walk and run (hallway right outside of our classroom).

• Complete the directed reading assignment.

• Begin graphing your walk and run data.

• 08 Oct 2012, P. 29-30

• Sharon wants to meet her friends for lunch on the far side of a lake at noon (12:00). She must travel 6 miles across the lake. If she leaves at 10:00 AM, how fast must she travel to make it to lunch on time?

• Speed = Distance/Time

• Speed – measurement of distance traveled in a period of time (mi/hr, m/s)

• Velocity – speed with direction

• Motion – a change in an object’s position over time relative to a reference point

• Reference point – a non-moving or stationary object

• Acceleration - measurement of how fast velocity changes (mi/hr2, m/s2)
