Introduction

1-D motion

Motion Diagrams (cart on a track)

Describe the motion in words.

Compare constant velocity and constant acceleration motion using motion diagrams.

Understand the purpose of a motion diagram.

position vs. time graphs

view an animation and predict the shape of the position vs. time graph

velocity vs. time graphs view an animation and predict the shape of the velocity vs. time graph
acceleration vs. time graphs view an animation and predict the shape of the acceleration vs. time graph
free-fall view graphs for a ball in free-fall with negligible air resistance
free-fall with air resistance view graphs of a ball's motion if there is air resistance as the ball falls
