The birds are angry that the pigs destroyed theirVelocity and Vectors nests – but luckily they have spotted a new nesting site. However, short-winged and poorly adapted to flight, they need to use a slingshot to get there.Draw velocity vectors for each position of the angry bird to show its relative instantaneousvelocity. Use the first vector as a guide.The flight takes 2.3s.

Velocity and Vectors Draw velocity vectors for each position of the angry bird to show its relative instantaneous velocity. Use the first vector as a guide. Remember that velocity vectors represent velocity – not distance. So it doesn’t matter if there is an object in the way – the velocity is the same until the moment of impact.

If the tour bus keeps going at the same speed in One Direction: • They have constant velocity • They are not accelerating Δd v= Δt Change in distance or displacement Change in timeIf the tour bus is at rest, they have: • zero velocity • and zero acceleration Acceleration is a vector: it has magnitude and direction.

Acceleration is a vector: it has magnitude and direction.We usually think of acceleration as • ‘speeding up’ These are more appropriate descriptors of • ‘slowing down’. changes in speed than in velocity. has direction!Instead, think of acceleration as: • ‘positive’ acceleration is same direction as velocity • ‘negative’ acceleration is opposite velocity Stop here and work through the page on acceleration at: http://www.physicsclassroom.com/Class/1DKin/U1L1e.cfm
