1 Scalar versus Vector Quantities Scalar Quantities Magnitude (size) 55 mph Speed Average Speed = distance (in meters) time (in seconds) Vector Quantities Magnitude (size) Direction 55 mph, North v = Dx Dt Speed: Example Two During a 3.00 second time interval, a runner s position changes from x 1 = 50.0 m to x 2 =30.5 m. What was her average speed? (Ans: m/s) A car is driven at an average speed of km/hr for two hours, then driven at an average speed of 50.0 km/hr for the next hour. What was the average speed for the three-hour trip? (Ans: 83.3 km/hr) Remember that average speed is calculated using: v=x/t Since the speed changed, we have to address each part of the trip separately. 1. To find the distance for the first two hours, we use: x=vt x= 100km/hr X 2 hr = 200 km 3. To find the average velocity, we will divide the total distance by the time: v=x/t = 250 km /3 hr = 83.3 km/hr 2. To find the distance for the last hour, we use the same process: x= 50km/hr X 1 hr = 50 km 1

2 Average vs. Instantaneous Speed Average Speed The speed averaged for an entire trip Instantaneous Speed This is the speed at an infinitely short interval (a speedometer reading taken at any instant) Constant velocity Changing velocity Acceleration Acceleration A change in velocity Can be a change in speed (speeding up or slowing down) Acceleration (m/s 2 ) a = Dv = v final v initial Dt time Speeding up or slowing down Can be a change in direction (turning a bicycle) Acceleration can be negative (slowing down, decelerating) Superman is flying through space and slows down from 24,000 m/s to 20,000 m/s in 5 seconds. What is his acceleration? What is unusual about this number? A car starts from a complete stop at a stoplight and accelerates at 5 m/s 2 for 10 seconds. What is its final velocity? (Ans = 50 m/s) 2

3 Kinematic Equations A car moving at 30 m/s decelerates at 3.0 m/s 2. How long will it take for it to come to a complete stop? v = v o + at x = x o + v o t + ½ at 2 (ANS: t = 10 seconds) Timeindependent a = v 2 - v o 2 2x v ave = v + v o 2 An airplane takes off at 27.8 m/s and can accelerate at 2.00 m/s 2. How long must the runway be if the plane is to take off safely? How long does it take a car to cross a 30.0 m intersection if it accelerates at 2.00 m/s 2? (Ans: 193 m) (Ans: 5.48 s) A pitcher throws a baseball at 44 m/s. What is the acceleration if the ball travels through 3.5 m from the start of the pitch to the release? You wish to design an airbag that can protect a driver from a head-on collision at 100 km/h. Assume the car crumples on impact a distance of 1.00 m. a) What is the driver s acceleration? b) How fast does the airbag need to act? (Ans: 280 m/s 2 ) 3
