...Kinematics
Position
To specify a position vector you need to specify:
• Origin
• Distance
• Direction
If using a 3D righthanded coordinate system with the
origin being the reference point for the position vector,
it is enough to specify the coordinates x, y and z.
For a moving object the position vector is a function of
time.
Velocity & Acceleration
• Velocity is defined as the change in position over
a change in time; thus the average velocity is
and the instantaneous velocity is
• For motion in one dimension the velocity is the
slope of the position line plotted versus time.
• The same logic is used in deriving the average and
instantaneous acceleration resulting in:
• Jerk is defined as the rate of change of
acceleration:
Example 1
• A body starts from rest at x=0. ax(t)=2t4 [m/s2].
Find the jerk and the position as a function of
time.
Solution:
At rest =>vx0=0; At x=0 =>x0=0
Integrating:
vx(t)=vx0+t24t=t24t [m/s]
x(t)=x0+(t3/3)2t2=(t3/3)2t2 [m];
jx=dax/dt=2 [m/s3]
Example 2
A body is moving along x
with a constant jerk. At
t=2s, its velocity is 4
m/s. At t=4.5s and
t=5s, its acceleration is
respectively 2.1 m/s2
and 4m/s2. At t=1s it is
at x=3.4m. Determine
the position of the
body at t=7s.

Example 3
A body is launched with
an initial speed of
50m/s at an angle of
60 degrees with the
horizontal from a
height of 2m. How
far from its initial
position will it land?

Introduction
In this lab motion will be represented by graphs that plots distance and velocity vs. time. A motion detector will be used to measure the time it takes for a high frequency sound pulse to travel from the detector to an object and back. By using this method sound can determine the distance to the object, or its position. This device will determine in what direction the woman in the video was walking and how fast she was walking. This information will be plotted on a graph and show the motion as the woman moves, whether she speed up or slowed down. Logger Pro will use the change in position to calculate the object’s velocity and acceleration. All of this information is in graph form. A qualitative analysis of the graphs of motion will help you develop an understanding of the concepts of kinematics.
Theory
The motion of an object can be measured using a motion detector. The detector helps in knowing where an object is according to an indication point. How fast and in what direction an object is moving, and how an object is accelerating is necessary in understanding the kinematicsgraphs.
The Motion detector uses pulses of ultrasound that bounces off of an object to determine the position of the person/object. As the person moves, the change in its position is...
...Angular Kinematics
An object on a point that rotate a fixed axis has circular motion around the same axis. Linear quantities cannot be used for circular motion. This is due to the extended objects rotational motion rather that a particles linear motion. Circular motion, for this reason, is described in terms of the change in angular position. Except for the points on the axis, all the points on a rotating rigid object during any time interval move through the same angle.
Many equations describing circular motion require angles to be measured in radians (rad) instead of degrees. Any angle θ measured in radians, in general, is defined by the equation. If the arc length, s, and the length of the radius, r, is equal, the angle θ swept by r is equal to one radian. The units cancel and the abbreviation radian is substituted because θ is the ratio of the length of the radius (distance) to an arc length (also a distance). In other words, the radian is a pure number, with no dimensions.
When the light on a Ferris wheel moves one revolution of the wheel (angle of 360˚) the circumference of a circle, which is r, is equal to the arc length s. By substituting this value for s (into the equation above) gives the corresponding angle in radians . Hence radians equals 360˚, or one complete revolution. An angle approximately 2(3.14) =6.28 radians corresponds with one revolution. Figure 1 to the right is a circle that is marked with both degrees and radians.

GUIDE QUESTIONS:
1. From the data obtained, what is the effect of the height of the track to the cart’s acceleration?
The data shows that sinӨ, which is dependent on the height, is getting higher as acceleration is increasing. This implicates that when object is at higher altitude, its acceleration is faster.
2. From the data obtained, how is time, t related to the inclination of the track? Explain why?
Time and position of velocity are interrelated to each other and the height and gravitational pull affects the acceleration of a moving and a free falling object.
3. From the data obtained, how would you account the difference between the picket fence’s acceleration and the value of g?
The value of the slope of a graph of average velocity versus time will be the acceleration due to gravity of the falling object.

PROBLEM:
1. A police car is searching for a fugitive that managed to escape a while ago. Knowing that he is now safe, the fugitive begins to take a rest until he notices a police car approaching him at 10 m/s, accelerating at 5 m/s2 and it is 100 m away. The fugitive grabs a motorcycle and stars it accelerating at the same rate as the police car. How much time will it take the police car to catch the fugitive?
