Chapter 3 01/13/09 | Section 1  Describing Motion1 
Motion, Acceleration, and Forces
Section 1  Describing Motion
y
 
Motion can be described in the direction it is moving, the speed, as well as how it changes over time
y
 
Motion occurs when an object changes position
-
 
A
movement can happen without you witnessing it but you will still know it hasmoved 
y
 
R
eference frame is a group of object that do not move in occurrence with each other 
-
 
his can be used to tell the movement of an object 
-
 
Example:
 
A
mail truck can move without witnessing it but you can tell because it has moved its position inside the reference frame
y
 
Motion does not have a absolute movement.
-
 
Movement is only dependent on its
R
eference Frame
-
 
Example:
ou are in a car but if the car is the reference point then you are not moving but the car is moving in reference with the ground, Earth is moving in30Km/s but in reference to the sun while the sun is moving in refrence to theMilky Way.
 
y
 
D
isplacement is the distance from the objects finish point to the objects starting point 
-
 
S
ize is the distance from the start point to the initial finish point.

I
n
SI
units the measurement is m/s
y
 
I
nstantaneous
S
peed is the speed of an object at any instantaneous time

Example:
he speedometer in a car 
 
y
 
A
verage
S
peed is the description of how quickly an object moved over the entire distanceit traveled 
-
 
A
verage
S
peed of any object is the total distance traveled divided by the total travel time
-
 
For 
mula:
A
verage
S
peed =
d/ 
 
A
verage
S
peed is always found by a distance unit divided by a time unit 
-
 
A
lso you may want to use a different unit such as Km/h
y
 
elocity is the speed of an object and its direction
-
 
elocity can change at any time
-
 
ou must have the
S
peed 
AND
direction the same for the velocity to be the same,if the direction or speed changes then the velocity changes
