There are problems
On these next problems, think about
increasing the level of detail in your model. Specifically,
- Include a corodinate system in
- Define the variables you use
- In the conceptual representation,
explain the physics concepts that are behind your model. Also, be sure to
include your prediction/ estimate. This is just like the scientific method-
forma hypothesis first.
- Do not use the handout sheet or
turn in scratch work.
Today we'll continue to practice
with the tools and vocabulary for describing motion:
- A vector is a quantity with both a length
and a direction.
- Vectors can be described by a series of
numbers (components) or by a direction and length (magnitude).
- We can add or subtract vectors graphically
- 2-D motion
- Much more common than 1-D motion.
- May appear to be more complicated, but actually
involves no new physics.
- Each component can be assumed to be independent
of each other.
