One-Dimensional Motion


  • Termonology
    • Scalar ≡ magnitude or amount
    • Vector ≡ magnitude with direction
    • Position [x]
    • Displacement [Δx = x-xo]
    • Distance [d]
    • Speed [s = |V|]
    • Velocity [V]
    • Acceleration [a]
  • Constant Motion
    • Constant Speed [s = |V| ≡ d/t]
    • Constant Velocity [average v ≡ (Δx)/Δt]
  • Constant Acceleration
    • Acceleration [a ≡ ΔV/Δt]
    • Constant Acceleration Equations
      • V = Vo + at
      • V^2 = Vo^2 + 2aΔx
      • Δx = Vot + 1/2 at^2
      • Δx = 1/2 (V + Vo)t
