RESUM PHYSICS KINETICS/ MOVEMENT

Displacement is the change in an object’s position.

The displacement of an object is deﬁned as its change in position
(ﬁnal position minus initial position). Displacement has a magnitude
and direction and is therefore a vector. For example, if the initial
position of a car is xi and it moves to a ﬁnal position of xf, then the
displacement is: xf −xi However, subtracting an initial quantity from a
ﬁnal quantity happens often in Physics, so we use the shortcut ∆ to
mean ﬁnal - initial. Therefore, displacement can be written:
∆x = xf −xi
∆ is a letter of the Greek alphabet and is used to indicate a change in
a certain quantity, or a ﬁnal value minus an initial value. For example,
∆x means change in x while ∆t means change in t.
Displacement does not depend on the path travelled, but only on the
initial and ﬁnal positions
We use the word distance to describe how far an object travels along
a particular path. Distance is the actual distance that was covered.
Distance (symbol d) does not have a direction, so it is a scalar.
Displacement has direction and is therefore a vector.
Distance travelled is a measure of the actual distance covered during
the motion. For example, if Sophie completes three lengths of the
pool, the distance travelled during her swim will be 50 + 50 + 50 =
150 m.
If Sophie swims two lengths, she will have travelled a distance of 100
m, i.e. 50 m out and 50 m back. However, her displacement during
this swim will be: x = final position − initial position =0−0 =0
Even though she has swum 100 m, her displacement is zero because
the initial and final positions are the same. Displacement only
considers the starting and finishing positions of the motion; it does
not indicate anything about the route taken by the person or object
in getting from the initial to the final position.
The diﬀerences between distance and displacement can be
summarised as:
Distance1. depends on the path, always positive, scalar
Displacement 1. independent of path taken 1. depends on the path
2. can be positive or negative 3. is a vector

Speed and velocity are both quantities that give an indication
of how fast an object moves or, more precisely, of how quickly the
position of an object is changing. Both terms are in common use and
are often assumed to have the same meaning. In physics, however,
these terms are defined differently. • Speed is defined in terms of
the distance travelled and so, like distance, speed is a scalar. Thus, a
direction is not required when describing the speed of an object. •
Velocity is defined in terms of displacement and so is a vector
quantity. The SI unit for speed and velocity is metres per second (m
s−1); kilometres per hour (km h−1) is also commonly used.
Velocity is the rate of change of position.
Velocity is the rate of change of position. It tells us how much an
object’s position changes in time. This is the same as the
displacement divided by the time taken. Since displacement is a
vector and time taken is a scalar, velocity is also a vector. We use the
symbol v for velocity. If we have a displacement of ∆x and a time
taken of ∆t, v is then deﬁned as:
velocity (in m·s−1) = change in displacement (in m)
change in time (in s)
v = ∆x / ∆t
Velocity can be positive or negative. Positive values of velocity mean
that the object is moving away from the reference point or origin and
negative values mean that the object is moving towards the
reference point or origin.
Important: An instant in time is diﬀerent from the time taken or the
time interval. It is therefore useful to use the symbol t for an instant
in time (for example during the 4th second) and the symbol ∆t for
the time taken (for example during the ﬁrst 5 seconds of the motion)
Instantaneous velocity is the velocity of an accelerating body at a
speciﬁc instant in time.
Average velocity is the total displacement of a body over a time
interval.
Instantaneous speed and instantaneous velocity give a measure of
how fast something is moving at a particular moment or instant in
time. If the speedometer on a car shows 60 km h−1, it is indicating
the instantaneous speed of the car.
Average velocity (symbol v) is the displacement for the whole motion
divided by the time taken for the whole motion. Instantaneous
velocity is the velocity at a speciﬁc instant in time.
(Average) Speed (symbol s) is the distance travelled (d) divided by
the time taken (∆t) for the journey. Distance and time are scalars and
therefore speed will also be a scalar. Speed is calculated as follows:
speed (in m·s−1) = distance (in m) / time (in s)
s = d / ∆t
Instantaneous speed is the magnitude of instantaneous velocity. It
has the same value, but no direction.
Average Speed = distance travelled / time taken = d / Dt . Speed is
measured in metres per second (m s−1).
Average velocity = displacement / time taken = x / Dt Velocity is
measured in metres per second (m s−1) and requires a direction.
A direction (such as north, south, up, down, left, right, positive,
negative) must be given when describing a velocity. The direction will
always be the same as that of the displacement.
consider Jana, an athlete performing a training routine by running
back and forth along a straight stretch of running track. She jogs 100
m north in a time of 20 s, then turns and walks 50 m south in a
further 25 s before stopping.
a calculate Jana’s average speed as she is jogging.
b What is her average velocity as she is jogging?
c What is the average speed for this 150 m exercise?
d Determine the average velocity for this activity. e What is the
magnitude of Jana’s average velocity in km h−1?
Solution
a her average speed when jogging is: vav = distance travelled /time
taken = d / Dt = 100 m 20 s = 5.0 m s−
her average velocity when jogging is: vav = displacement /time taken
= x / Dt = 100 m north /20 s = 5.0 m s−1 north
Note that speed has been treated as a scalar and velocity as a
vector.
c Jana has covered a distance of 150 m in 45 s. her average speed is:
v av = distance travelled/ time taken = 150 m /45 s = 3.3 m s−
d She has finished 50 m to the north of where she started, i.e. her
displacement is 50 m north. her average velocity is: vav = x /Dt = 50
m north/ 45 s = 1.1 m s−1 north
problem
After a long day, a tired man decides not to use the pedestrian
bridge to cross over a freeway, and decides instead to run across. He
sees a car 100 m away travelling towards him, and is conﬁdent that
he can cross in time. If the car is travelling at 120 km·h−1, what is
the car’s speed in m·s−1. (b) How long will it take the car to travel
100 m? (c) If the man is running at 10 km·h−1, what is his speed in
m·s−1? (d) If the freeway has 3 lanes, and each lane is 3 m wide, how
long will it take for the man to cross all three lanes? (e) If the car is
travelling in the furthermost lane from the man, will he be able to
cross all 3 lanes of the freeway safely?

Finding velocity changes

When finding the change in any physical quantity, the initial value is
taken away from the final value. Thus, a change in velocity is the final
velocity minus the initial velocity:
negative of a vector simply points in the opposite direction
Worked example A golf ball is dropped onto a concrete floor and
strikes the floor at 5.0 m s−1. It then rebounds at 5.0 m s−1. a What
is the change in speed for the ball? b calculate the change in velocity
for the ball.
a Both the initial and final speed of the ball are 5.0 m s−1, so the
change in speed for the ball is: Dv = v − u = 5.0 − 5.0 = 0 As speed is a
scalar quantity, the direction of motion of the ball is not a
consideration.
b to determine the change in velocity of the ball: Dv = v − u = 5.0
m s−1 up − 5.0 m s−1 down
Let up be the positive direction, so: Dv = +5.0 − (−5.0) = +5.0 + 5.0
= 10 m s−1 up . Velocity is a vector quantity and the change in
direction of the ball is responsible for its velocity change.
Acceleration
Acceleration is a measure of how quickly velocity changes.
Acceleration (symbol a) is the rate of change of velocity. It is a
measure of how fast the velocity of an object changes in time. If we
have a change in velocity (∆v) over a time interval (∆t), then the
acceleration (a) is deﬁned as: acceleration (in m·s−2) = change in
velocity (in m·s−1) / change in time (in s)
a = ∆v / ∆t
Since velocity is a vector, acceleration is also a vector. Acceleration
how the motion changes. It is not possible to tell how fast an object
is moving or in which direction from the acceleration. Like velocity,
acceleration can be negative or positive. We see that when the sign
of the acceleration and the velocity are the same, the object is
speeding up. If both velocity and acceleration are positive, the object
is speeding up in a positive direction. If both velocity and
acceleration are negative, the object is speeding up in a negative
direction. If velocity is positive and acceleration is negative, then the
object is slowing down. Similarly, if the velocity is negative and the
acceleration is positive the object is slowing down
A car accelerates uniformly from and initial velocity of 2 m·s−1 to a
ﬁnal velocity of 10 m·s1 in 8 seconds. It then slows down uniformly
to a ﬁnal velocity of 4 m·s−1 in 6 seconds. Calculate the acceleration
of the car during the ﬁrst 8 seconds and during the last 6 seconds.
For the ﬁrst 8 seconds: vi = 2 m·s−1 vf = 10 m·s−1 ti = 0 s tf = 8 s
For the last 6 seconds: vi = 10 m·s−1 vf = 4 m·s−1 ti = 8 s tf = 14 s
For the ﬁrst 8 seconds: a = ∆v /∆t =10−2 / 8−0 = 1 m·s−2
For the next 6 seconds:a =∆v/ ∆t= 4−10/ 14−8 = −1 m·s−2
During the ﬁrst 8 seconds the car had a positive acceleration .
This means that its velocity increased. The velocity is positive so the
car is speeding up. During the next 6 seconds the car had a negative
acceleration. This means that its velocity decreased. The velocity is
positive so the car is slowing down.
A cheetah running at 20 m s−1 slows down as it approaches a
average acceleration of the cheetah.
Solution the average acceleration of the cheetah is:
aav = Dv /Dt = v – u/ Dt
= 2 − 20 /3.0 = −6.0 m s−2 that is, each second, the cheetah is
slowing down by 6.0 m s−1.

Graphing position
A position–time graph indicates the position of an object at any time
for motion that occurs over an extended time interval.
Velocity is given by the gradient of a position–time graph. A positive
velocity indicates that the object is moving in a positive direction,
and a negative velocity indicates motion in a negative direction.

Graphing velocity
A graph of velocity against time shows how the velocity of an object
changes with time. This type of graph is useful for analysing the
motion of an object moving in a complex manner, for example a ball
bouncing up and down.
Displacement is given by the area under a velocity–time graph (or
the area between the line and the time axis). It is important to note
that an area below the time axis indicates a negative displacement,
i.e. motion in a negative direction.
The acceleration of an object can also be found from a velocity–time
graph. Since acceleration is the velocity change divided by time
taken, it is also given by the gradient of the v–t graph.
The area under an acceleration–time graph is the change
in velocity of the object

A racing car is travelling north. It accelerates uniformly covering a

distance of 725 m in 10 s. If it has an initial velocity of 10 m·s−1, ﬁnd
its acceleration.
Answer Step 1 : Identify what information is given and what is asked
for We are given: vi = 10 m·s−1 ∆x = 725 m t = 10 s a = ?
Step 2 : Find an equation of motion relating the given information to
the acceleration, ﬁnd the quantity that is not given and then look for
an equation that does not have this quantity in it
∆x = vit + 1/ 2 at2
725 = (10×10) +1/ 2 a×(10)2 725−100 = 50 a a = 12,5 m·s−2

A motorcycle, travelling east, starts from rest, moves in a straight line

with a constant acceleration and covers a distance of 64 m in 4 s.
Calculate • its acceleration • its ﬁnal velocity • at what time the
motorcycle had covered half the total distance • what distance the
motorcycle had covered in half the total time. Answer Step 1 :
Identify what information is given and what is asked for We are
given: vi = 0 m·s−1(because the object starts from rest.) ∆x = 64 m t =
4 s a = ? vf = ? t = ? at half the distance ∆x = 32 m. ∆x = ? at half the
time t = 2 s.
All quantities are in SI units. Step 2 : Acceleration: Find a suitable
equation to calculate the acceleration
∆x = vit + 1/ 2 at2
64 = (0×4) +1 /2a×(4)2 =64 = 8a a = 8 m·s−2 east
Final velocity: remember we now also know the acceleration of the
object. vf = vi + at
Distance at half the time: Find an equation to relate the distance and
time Half the time is 2 s, thus we have vi, a and t - all in the correct
units. We can use equation 3.3 to get the distance:
∆x = vit + 1/ 2 at2 = (0)(2) +1/2(8)(2)2= 16 m east
VERTICAL MOTION . FREE FALL
if air resistance can be ignored, all free-falling bodies near the
Earth’s surface will move with an equal downwards acceleration. In
other words, the mass of the object does not matter.
At the Earth’s surface, the acceleration due to gravity is g = 9.8 m s−2
down.
Free fall simply implies that the motion of the body is affected only
by gravity, i.e. there is no air resistance and there are no rockets
firing. It is also important to note that the acceleration of a freely
falling body is always 9.8 m s−2 down, and does not depend on
whether the body is falling up or down. For example, a coin that is
dropped from rest will be moving at 9.8 m s−1 after 1 s, 19.6 m s−1
after 2 s, and so on. Each second, its speed increases by 9.8 m s−1.
However, if the coin was launched straight up at 19.6 m s−1, then
after 1 s its speed would be 9.8 m s−1, and after 2 s it would be
stationary (Figure 4.32) . In other words, each second it would slow
down by 9.8 m s−1. Since the acceleration of a freely falling body is
constant, it is appropriate to use the equations for uniform
acceleration. It is often necessary to specify up or down as the
positive or negative direction when doing these problems
A construction worker accidentally knocks a brick from a building so
that it falls vertically a distance of 50 m to the ground. Using g = 9.8
m s−2, calculate: a )the time the brick takes to fall the first 25 m
b) the time the brick takes to reach the ground c) the speed of the
brick as it hits the ground.
Solution Down will be treated as the positive direction for this
problem since this is the direction of the displacement.
a ) initial velocity u = 0, x = 25 m, a = 9.8 m s−2, t = ?
x = ut + 1 /2at2
25 = 0 + 1/ 2 × 9.8 × t2 t2 = 5.1 t = 2.3 s
b) u = 0, a = 9.8 m s−2, x = 50 m, t = ? x = ut + 1/ 2at2
50 = 0 + 1 2 × 9.8 × t2 t2 = 10.2 t = 3.2 s
c )u = 0, a = 9.8 m s−2, x = 50 m, t = 3.2 s, v = ?
v = u + at v = 0 + 9.8 × 3.2 = 31 m s−1
On winning a tennis match the victorious player, Michael, smashed
the ball vertically into the air at 30 m s−1. In this example, air
resistance can be ignored and the acceleration due to gravity will be
taken as 10 m s−2. a Determine the maximum height reached by the
ball. b calculate the time that the ball takes to return to its starting
position. c calculate the velocity of the ball 5.0 s after being hit by
Michael. d Determine the acceleration of the ball at its maximum
height. e Draw an acceleration–time graph of the ball’s motion. f
Draw a velocity–time graph of the ball’s motion.
Solution In this problem, up will be taken as positive since it is the
direction of the initial displacement.
a At the maximum height, the velocity of the ball is momentarily
zero. u = 30 m s−1, v = 0, a = −10 m s−2, x = ?
v2 = u2 + 2ax 0 = (30)2 + 2(−10)x ∴ x = +45 m, i.e. the ball
reaches a height of 45 m.
b to work out the time for which the ball is in the air, it is often
necessary to first calculate the time that it takes to reach its
maximum height. u = 30 m s−1, v = 0, a = −10 m s−2, x = 45 m, t = ?
v = u + at
0 = 30 + (−10 × t) ∴ t = 3.0 s the ball takes 3.0 s to reach its
maximum height. It will therefore take 3.0 s to fall from this height
back to its starting point and so the whole trip will last for 6.0 s.
c u = 30 m s−1, a = −10 m s−2, t = 5.0 s, v = ?
v = u + at v = 30 +(−10 × 5.0) = −20 m s−1 the ball is travelling
downwards at 20 m s−1.
