- 1. 1 Everything Science www.everythingscience.co.za 21. Motion in one dimension Physics: Mechanics Grade 10
- 2. 2 Everything Science www.everythingscience.co.za Position and frames of reference A reference point is a point from where you take your measurements. A frame of reference is a reference point with a set of directions. Your position is where you are located with respect to your reference point.
- 3. 3 Everything Science www.everythingscience.co.za Displacement and distance The displacement (Δx) of an object is how far it is from the reference point. It is the shortest distance between the object and the reference point. It has magnitude and direction because it is a vector. The distance (D) of an object is the length of the path travelled from the starting point to the end point. It has magnitude only because it is a scalar. Displacement is the black line and distance is the blue line.
- 4. 4 Everything Science www.everythingscience.co.za Speed and velocity Speed (v) is the distance covered (D) divided by the time taken (∆t): Average velocity ( ) is the displacement (∆x) divided by the time taken (∆t): Instantaneous speed is the speed at a specific instant in time. Instantaneous velocity is the velocity at a specific instant in time. ⃗vav v= D Δt ⃗vav= Δ x Δt
- 5. 5 Everything Science www.everythingscience.co.za Acceleration Acceleration (a) is the change in velocity ( ) over a time interval (∆t): a= Δ⃗v Δt Δ⃗v
- 6. 6 Everything Science www.everythingscience.co.za Graphs of motion ● The gradient of a position - time graph (x vs. t) gives the velocity. ● The gradient of a velocity - time graph (v vs. t) gives the acceleration. ● The area under a velocity - time graph (v vs. t) gives the displacement. ● The area under an acceleration - time graph (a vs. t) gives the velocity.
- 7. 7 Everything Science www.everythingscience.co.za Equations of motion The equations of motion are used where constant acceleration takes place. ⃗vf =⃗vi +⃗at Δ⃗x= (⃗vi + ⃗vf ) 2 t Δ⃗x=⃗vi t+ 1 2 ⃗at2 ⃗vf 2 = ⃗vi 2 +2⃗aΔ⃗x
