Our kinematics test is Monday. It will cover chapters 1- 4, which talks about how to describe motion.

Today, we’ll look at two special cases of two-dimensional motion- projectile motion and uniform circular motion. With both, you can write separate equations for the x and y components of motion (position, velocity and acceleration).

- Projectile motion
- There is only an acceleration in the vertical direction (due to gravity).
- Today we’ll apply what we had talked about last time.

- Uniform circular motion
- Move about a center with a fixed radius at a constant speed.
- Today, we’ll start looking at this (with more practice on Friday).
