6-2 Distance & Displacement

  1. 1. What are the results for following indicators in the presence of acid, neutral and base?<br />Litmus<br /> A – Blue & Red change to Red<br /> N – Blue & Red do not change<br /> B – Blue & Red change to Blue<br />Bromthymol Blue<br /> A – Yellow<br /> N – Green<br /> B – Blue<br />Warm-up<br />
  2. 2. 6-2 Distance & Displacement<br />Identify appropriate SI units for measuring distances.<br />Distinguish between distance and displacement.<br />Calculate displacement using vector addition.<br />
  3. 3. Measure Distance<br />Distance is the measure of length of any path between two points.<br />The path can be a straight line.<br />Not always<br />Use the unit best suited for the distance:<br />Very large distance – km<br />Mississippi River is 3780 km long.<br />Very small distance – cm or mm<br />The distance a marble rolls on carpet – 6 cm<br />Distances in between could be hm, dkm, m, or dm.<br />
  4. 4. Symbols<br />d – distance<br />d1 , d2 <br />Δx , Δy , or r – displacement<br />xi , xf , yi, and yf<br />m – meters<br />m – mass<br />
  5. 5. Vector vs. Scalar<br />Vector<br />Any quantity that has magnitude (size), units, and direction<br />Scalar<br />Any quantity that has only magnitude (size), and units, but direction does not matter.<br />
  6. 6. Distance vs. Displacement<br />Distance is the length of any path between two points.<br />d = |x1| + |x2| <br />Displacement is the direction and straight line distance between starting point and finishing point.<br />∆x = x1+ x2<br />∆y = y1+ y2<br />For right triangles<br />r = √( x2 + y2)<br />Sign & direction are important!!!<br />
  7. 7. Practice<br /> A football player runs 25 meters up-field and is pushed back 3 meters when he is tackled. What is the player’s distance traveled and displacement?<br />
  8. 8. Practice<br /> A pitcher throws a baseball 20 meters to the catcher and the catcher throws the ball back to the pitcher. What is the distance traveled and the displacement of the ball?<br />
  9. 9. Practice<br /> The Lone Ranger runs 5 meters east to get away from the bad guys, but he stops when he sees more bad guys and runs 12 meters west to hide behind a rock. What was his displacement and total distance traveled?<br />
  10. 10. 6-2 Summary<br />What is the difference between distance and displacement?<br />How do you find displacement?<br />When do you use Pythagorean theorem?<br />
