2.1.1c Distance and Displacement Distance and displacement are two different physical quantities. Distance is a scalar quantity that has magnitude only. Displacement is a vector quantity that has both magnitude and direction. Distance s is the length of the path an object moved. Distance = Speed x Time OR s = vt

Displacement s is the distance moved in a particular direction or distance of an object from a given point in a particular direction. Displacement = Velocity x Time OR s = vt

Example 1 A student walks 3 km towards the North from point O. After that, he moves 4 towards the East. Calculate (a) the total distance traveled and (b) the displacement of the student from point O?
Solution a. Total distance moved = Distance towards the North + Distance towards the East = 3 + 4 = 7 km. b. The triangle OAB is a right angle triangle. To calculate the displacement from O, use Pythagoras theorem:

4 km A 3 km 5 km O B

OB = OA 2 +AB2 = 32 +42 = 5 km.

Displacement = 5 km in the direction of OB. Notice that distance is a scalar quantity; so, total distance moved is calculated by adding the distances moved in different directions like ordinary numbers. Displacement is vector. The magnitude of the displacement cannot be calculated by adding the displacements in different directions like ordinary numbers. Refer to the box to see how the direction of the displacement is determined.

Determination of the direction of the displacement 4 sin AOB = 5 AOB = 53o Direction of the displacement is 053o (stated in bearings).

Example 2 A student walks 6 m to the right of a point O. He then walks 5 m towards the right. Finally he walks 11 m towards O. Calculate (a) the distance moved by the student and (b) the displacement of the student from O. (a) The distance moved by the student = 6 + 5 + 11 = 22 m

Example 2 A car moves 400 km Northwards from the point O in 5 hours and continues to move 300 km Eastwards in 5 hours. Calculate (a) the speed and (b) the velocity of the car? Solution 300 km a. Total Distance moved, s = 400 + 300 km. A B Total distance moved Speed = 400 km Time 500 km s 700 v= = = 70 km h -1 O t 10 b. Final displacement of the car from O is 500 km. (Using Pythagoras theorem.) Displaceme nt Velocity = Can you determine the Time direction of the velocity? s 500 v= = = 50 km h -1 t 10 Example 3 An object moves round a circle with a perimeter of 200 m in 4 s. Calculate (a) the speed of the object and (b) the velocity of the object. Solution (a) Speed of the object, v = 200/4 = 50 m s-1

When an object moves round a circle it comes back to its starting point. So its displacement = 0

Chapter 2 Forces and Motion Date: ___________

(b) Velocity of the object, v = 0/4 = 0 m s-1 2.1.1e Uniform velocity and Non-uniform velocity
An object is moving with a uniform velocity if the speed and the direction of motion do not change. This tells us that an object has uniform velocity if it is (a) moving in a straight line (no change in direction) with (b) constant speed (no change in speed). An object is moving with a non-uniform velocity if the speed changes but the direction of motion remains constant. the speed remains constant but the direction of motion changes. both the speed and the direction of motion changes.

How is the acceleration of an object related to its speed and direction?

2.1.1f Acceleration

An object is accelerating if its velocity is NOT uniform. An object is NOT accelerating if its velocity is uniform.

The Table below summarizes the velocity, speed and direction of motion of an object that is accelerating and not accelerating. Acceleration Speed Direction of Motion Velocity Object is accelerating Changes Fixed Changes Object is accelerating Fixed Changes Changes Object is accelerating Changes Changes Changes Object is not accelerating Fixed Fixed Fixed (Zero acceleration)

Acceleration is the rate of change of velocity

Accelerati on = Rate of change of velocity Change in velocit y Time taken Final velocity - Initial velocity = Time taken =
v t v-u a= t a=

OR

Retardation or Deceleration An object is undergoing retardation or is decelerating if the speed (magnitude of its velocity) is decreasing. Uniform Acceleration An object has uniform acceleration if its velocity increases at a constant rate. Zero Acceleration An object is said to have zero acceleration if the object is a. at rest or b. moving with uniform velocity (moving with uniform speed in a fixed direction) Positive Acceleration or Negative Acceleration A positive acceleration does not always show an object is accelerating. Neither does a negative acceleration always show an object is decelerating.

Chapter 2 Forces and Motion Date: ___________

o For example, if an object is moving in the negative direction and the acceleration is negative, the
object is accelerating not decelerating.

2.1.2 Linear motion with constant acceleration (suvat Equations) suvat Equations can be used if an object moves in a straight line with constant acceleration. There are 4 equations for linear motion with constant acceleration: Equation v = u + at s = (u + v)t 2as = v2 u2 s = ut + at2 Quantity s = Displacement u = Initial velocity v = Final velocity a = Acceleration t = Time
Note: There is a fifth equation embedded in the equation: Displacement = Average velocity x Time s = (u + v)t (u + v) s Average velocity, v = = 2 t

REMEMBER suvat

Example 1 A car accelerates from 20 m s-1 to 40 m s-1 in 5 s. Calculate the acceleration of the car. Solution Data vu u = ____ m s-1 a= t v = ____ m s-1 t = ____ s

Example 2 An object moving with a velocity of 10 m s-1 undergoes a retardation of 5 m s-2 until the object stops. Calculate the distance moved by the object before it stops. Solution Data u = ____ m s-1 2as = v 2 u 2 v = ____ m s-1 (stops) a = ____ m s-2 Why is the acceleration negative?

Example 3 A bullet moving at 400 m s-1 hits a wooden block which is at rest. The bullet penetrates the block a depth of 4 cm before it stops. What is the deceleration of the bullet? 2as = v 2 u 2 Data u = _______ m s-1 v = _______ m s-1 s = ________ cm

2.1.3 Analysing motion with a ticker timer A ticker timer can only work with alternating current (a.c.). The potential difference used is 12 V a.u. and the frequency of the alternating current is 50 Hz. o The striker of the ticker timer vibrates 50 times a second and produces 50 dots a second on a ticker tape. 2.1.3a Measurement of time with a ticker timer Tick
Time is measured by a ticker timer in units of ticks and NOT dots. Each mark on the ticker tape is a dot. The space between two dots is the time interval between 2 dots, that is, a tick. o Note: To obtain the time shown on a ticker tape, we have to count the number of spaces in a ticker tape. The frequency of a ticker timer is 50 Hz. This means that 50 ticks (50 spaces) are produced per second on a ticker tape, that is, o 50 ticks = 1 second 1 o 1 tick = s = 0.02 s 50 The strip of ticker tape below has 11 dots. This means that there are 10 spaces between the 11 dots. So, the time shown by the ticker strip is 10 ticks. o Time for 10 ticks in seconds = 10 x 0.02 = 0.2 s

Dots

There are 10 spaces between 11 dots! Note: Time in ticks is measured in terms of the number of spaces and NOT the number of dots. First dot 2.1.3b Measurement of Displacement or Distance with a Ticker Timer A B Eleventh dot

Length of tape Displacement or Distance of an object = Length of the tape between the starting point A and the final point B.

Chapter 2 Forces and Motion Date: ___________

NOTE: The ticker tape moving through a ticker timer can only move in straight line and in one direction. So, the distance measured by a ticker is the displacement because it is distance moved in a fixed direction. 2.1.3c Measurement of Velocity with a Ticker Timer t = 4 ticks = 0.08 s A s = 20 cm The displacement between point A and point B is 20 cm and the time for the object to move from A to B is 0.08 s. Velocity can be using the equation: Displaceme nt Velocity = Time s 20 v= = = 250 cm s -1 t 0.08 2.1.3d Qualitative Analysis of Velocity with a Ticker Timer P Q The two strips of ticker tapes for the motion of two objects. The distance between consecutive dots for each strip is uniform. This shows that both objects are moving with uniform velocity. However, the distance between consecutive dots for strip Q is larger compared to that of strip P. This tells use that object Q is moving with a higher velocity.

Example Describe the motion of objects A, B, and C based on the strips of ticker tapes below: Start A B C Solution Tape A: Object A moves with a (uniform/non-uniform) velocity. Initially, the velocity of the object is (high/low). The velocity of the object is (increasing/ decreasing) continuously. Tape B: Object B moves with a (uniform/non-uniform) velocity. Initially, the velocity of the object is (high/low). The velocity of the object is (increasing/ decreasing) continuously. End

Chapter 2 Forces and Motion Date: ___________

Tape C: Initially, object C moves with (uniform/non-uniform) velocity. At the fifth tick, its velocity is (half of/the same as) the original velocity. At the eleventh tick, the velocity is back to the initial value and is (uniform/non-uniform). 2.1.3e Measurement of Acceleration using a Ticker Timer A velocity-time chart is obtained by arranging strips of ticker tape of equal time interval (measured in ticks). Strips with 10 ticks are usually used which means that the time for each strip is 0.2s. Since the time for each strip is the same, a comparison of the length of the strip will give a comparison of the velocity. 2.1.3f Qualitative analysis of a velocity-time chart The time interval for a strip in each of the velocity-time charts A F is 10 ticks. a. What is represented by the x and y-axes? x-axis: y-axis: b. Comment on the velocity and the acceleration of the motion of the object represented by each chart?

Chart A: Each strip is of (the same/different) length. The velocity of the object is (uniform/nonuniform). The acceleration is (zero/constant/not constant). Chart B: Each strip is of (the same/different) length. The velocity of the object is (uniform/nonuniform). The acceleration is (zero/constant/not constant). The strips in Chart B are (shorter/longer) than those in Chart A showing that the velocity of object B is (lower/higher). Chart C: Initially, the velocity of the object is (low/high). The velocity of the object (decreases/increases) uniformly. The object has (uniform/non-uniform) acceleration. Chart D: Initially, the velocity of the object is (low/high). The velocity of the object (decreases/increases) uniformly. The object has (uniform/non-uniform) deceleration. Chart E: Initially, the velocity of the object is (zero/uniform/non-uniform). Subsequently, the velocity (decreases/increases) uniformly. The object has (zero/uniform/non-uniform) acceleration initially. After that, it undergoes uniform (retardation/acceleration).

Chapter 2 Forces and Motion Date: ___________

Chart F: Initially, the velocity of the object (decreases/increases) uniformly. Subsequently, the velocity becomes (uniform/non-uniform). Finally, the velocity of the object (decreases/increases) uniformly. The object undergoes (zero/uniform/non-uniform) acceleration initially. Next, it has (zero/uniform/non-uniform) acceleration. Finally, it undergoes uniform (deceleration/acceleration).

2.1.3g Quantitive Analysis of the Velocity-Time Chart If an object is moving with uniform acceleration, a ticker tape can be used to calculate its acceleration. For such an object, the distance between consecutive dots increases uniformly.
0.5 cm 1.0 cm 1.5 cm 2.0 cm 2.5 cm

Notice that distance between the first two dots is 0.5 cm. Distance between subsequent consecutive dots increases by 0.5 cm. (i) Calculation of the acceleration directly from the ticker tape The acceleration of an object can be calculated directly from a ticker tape above. 1. Determination of time Assume the frequency of the ticker timer is 50 Hz. The time for 1 strip, t = 1 tick = 0.02 s 2. Determination of the Initial Velocity u Initial displacement, s1 = Length of the first strip = 0.5 cm. Initial Velocity, u = Initial Displaceme nt s1 0.5 = = = 25 cm s -1 Time t1 0.02

3. Determination of the Final Velocity v Final Displacement, s2 = Length of the fifth strip = 2.5 cm. Final Velocity, v = Final Displaceme nt s2 2.5 = = = 125 cm s -1 Time t2 0.02

4. Calculation of the Acceleration Time taken, t = Time for 1 strip x the number of strips = 0.02 4 = 0.08 s For an object moving with uniform acceleration,

Acceleration =

Final velocity - Initial velocity Time taken v - u 125 - 25 a= = = 1250 cm s 2 = 1.25 m s 2 t 0.08

(ii) Calculation of the acceleration using a ticker tape chart The acceleration of an object can also be calculated using a ticker tape chart. A ticker tape is first cut up into ten-tick strips. They are then arranged into a chart as shown.

1. Determination of time Assume the frequency of the ticker timer is 50 Hz. The time for 1 tick = 0.02 s. The time for each ten-tick strip, t = 0.02 x 10 = 0.2 s. 2. Determination of the Initial Velocity u
Note that the velocity increases 5 times from the first strip to the v sixth strip

4. Calculation of the Acceleration Time taken, t = Time for 1 strip x the number of strips = 0.2 5 = 1 s For an object moving with uniform acceleration,
Why is the number of strips to determine the acceleration taken as 5 and NOT 6? The time taken is for the velocity to increase from 150 cm s-1 to 650 cm s-1. How many times does the velocity increase from 150 cm s-1 to 650 cm s-1? 5 NOT 6!
