Maybe- you can’t tell- it might be headed toward you or away from you!! Velocity – Speed and direction Car one is headed east at 50 mph. Car two is headed west at 50 mph. Do they have the same speed? The same velocity? Speed – yes Velocity - no Relative Motion : Relative Motion Are you moving if you are sitting 100% still in your chair?? YES! The earth is moving and you are on the earth, so you are moving relative to the other planets, the sun, etc. NO! Relative to the floor, you are not moving It all depends on your frame of reference Relative motion – motion depends on your frame of reference http://www.phy.ntnu.edu.tw/ntnujava/index.php?topic=140 Acceleration : Acceleration Acceleration- rate of change in velocity Occurs when speed or direction changes Negative acceleration- when something slows down Positive acceleration- when something speeds up Change in velocity / change in time = acceleration Acceleration = Force / mass Units m/s2 Acceleration due to gravity = 9.8 m/s2 Velocity- Time Graph : Velocity- Time Graph Velocity- Time graph : Velocity- Time graph Slope = acceleration Flat slope = constant speed Positive slope = sleeping up Negative slope = slowing down Design your own experiment : Design your own experiment Choose one option: You have 2 toy cars. Which one will have the greatest velocity with the same force applied to both? You have 2 toy cars. Which one will have the greatest acceleration with the same force applied to both? Or do both for extra credit! You do not have the permission to view this presentation. In order to view it, please contact the author of the presentation.
