Chapter2: Motion Along a Straight

Line
OBJECTIVES:

Displacement, Time , and Average Velocity

Consider the motion of a car below.

At time t1 = 1s , the car is at position x1 =19m and At time t2

= 4s , the car is at position x2 = 277m.
The displacement of the car
is:
The time interval is:
The average velocity of the car
is:

Instantaneous Velocity
instantaneous velocity (v) is the velocity of a body at a specific
instant of time or at any specific point along the path.
instantaneous velocity (v) is the limit of average velocity of a
body as the time interval approaches zero.

Free Fall (UAM along the y-axis)

free fall is motion under the action of the force of gravity alone
(air resistance is neglected).
a freely-falling body has a constant acceleration called the
acceleration due to gravity g = - 9.80 m/s2 (always directed
downward).

NOTE: Follow correct sign

convention. All quantities with

should
have a negative sign.
downward velocity: - v
