Objectives You will be able to: o Relate the slope of a position-time graph to speed o Determine speed using position-time graphs o Describe the type of motion indicated in a positiontime graph; motion with constant speed or accelerated motion 1. Recall that: A position vector is a vector that joins the origin to the new position of the moving object. 2. time interval= ∆t=final timeinitial time. displacement= ∆d=final position- initial position. 3. 4. A position time graph can: - describe the motion of an object - determine the position of the object at a certain time - determine the time of an object for a certain position. Motion with a constant speed (uniform motion) Motion with a changing speed ( Accelerated motion) Motion with a constant speed - Position -time Line of best fit: - Relationship: -Equation : y= Motion with a changing speed - Position -time Line of best fit: - Relationship: -Equation : y= Uniform motion ( constant speed) Position-time graph: straight line Accelerated Motion ( varied speed) Position –time graph: parabola Position time graph Data Y= mx+b Where: y is the position at a certain time X is the time m= slope B= y-intercept Calculating slope -( rf: ch: 1 section 3) - Absolute value of slope= speed 2. y-intercept Represents the initial vector position of the object . 3. A line with a greater slope (steeper line ) represents a constant motion with a higher speed. 1. App: Find the speed and initial vector of the object whose motion is representing by the graph + question II from the worksheet Describe the motion of an object whose motion is described by the following equation: y= -2 x+4 Accelerated motion of a moving towards the origin with increasing speed Accelerated motion of a moving object towards the origin with a decreasing speed Object moving away the origin with an increasing speed Equation: Y= ax² + bx +c Where a= half of the acceleration (rf . Section 2.4 How Fast?) b= initial (starting)velocity c= initial position App: Describe the motion of an object whose position –time is represented by the following equation: Y (m)= 2 x² + 3x +4 - 2 types of linear motion: a. Uniform motion where the speed is kept constant: • Position- time graph is represented by a straight line where : absolute value of the slope= speed b. Accelerated motion where the speed is changing over time. • Position – time graph is represented by a parabola.
