Speed and velocity

  1. 1. Speed and velocity February 16, 2011 Copy and complete the following table: Quantity Symbol Unit Symbol Equation Speed         Distance         Time        
  2. 2. Quantity Symbol Unit Symbol Equation Speed v metre per second m/s v=d/t Distance d metre m d=vt Time t second s t=d/v
  3. 4. Definition <ul><li>Speed is the rate of change of distance </li></ul>rate of changing
  4. 6. speed distance time
  5. 7. Why I don’t like formula triangles Now stick that in a triangle…
  6. 8. Can you calculate speed? <ul><li>Usain Bolt can run 100 m in 9.58 second. How fast does he run? </li></ul>
  7. 9. Worked example what you know what you want How they are related Rearrange and substitute Include units
  8. 10. Two types of speed <ul><li>How fast was Usain Bolt running at the start? </li></ul><ul><li>How fast was he running in the middle? </li></ul><ul><li>How fast was he running at the finish? </li></ul>
  9. 11. Average speed
  10. 12. Instantaneous speed <ul><li>This is the speed at any given moment (or instant!) </li></ul><ul><li>A speedometer in a car gives the instantaneous speed but you would have to calculate the average speed (most GPS systems can do this for you) </li></ul>
  11. 13. Displacement <ul><li>The difference between the starting point and finishing point. It is distance with direction </li></ul>
  12. 14. How far does a football travel during a match? <ul><li>Distance: many kilometers </li></ul><ul><li>Displacement: 0 </li></ul>
  13. 15. Velocity <ul><li>The rate of change of displacement </li></ul><ul><li>OR </li></ul><ul><li>How fast you are going in a particular direction </li></ul>
  14. 16. Velocity
  15. 17. velocity displacement time
  16. 18. constant speed changing velocity
  17. 19. Graphing movement February 16, 2011 Can you write a story describing the graph? Write down ALL the information this graph shows. Height / m time / s
  18. 20. Learning objective <ul><li>Draw and interpret distance-time graphs </li></ul><ul><li>Draw and interpret velocity-time graphs </li></ul>
