SI unit: meter (m)

Speed is the rate of change of distance

SI unit: m s-1

Velocity is the rate of change of displacement.

Uniform speed Uniform velocity An object has a non-uniform velocity if: Acceleration, a

Speed that remains the same in magnitude regardless of its direction. Velocity that remains the same in magnitude and direction. (a) the direction of motion changes or the motion is not linear. (b)The magnitude of its velocity changes. When the velocity of an object changes, the object is said to be accelerating. Acceleration is defined as the rate of change of velocity. Acceleration = Change in velocity Time taken = final velocity, v – initial velocity, u Time taken, t

a=

acceleration is positive

• The velocity of an object increases from an initial velocity, u, to a higher final velocity, v The rate of decrease in speed in a specified direction.

Deceleration

acceleration is negative. Zero acceleration Constant acceleration

The velocity of an object decreases from an initial velocity, u, to a lower final velocity, v. An object moving at a constants velocity, that is, the magnitude and direction of its velocity remain unchanged – is not accelerating Velocity increases at a uniform rate. When a car moves at a constant or uniform acceleration of 5 ms-2, its velocity increases by 5 ms-1 for every second that the car is in motion.

Situations for Reducing Impulsive Force in Sports Situations Explanation Thick mattress with soft surfaces are used in events such as high jump so that the time interval of impact on landing is extended. Situation of Increasing Impulsive Force Situations Explanation A karate expert can break a thick wooden slab with his bare hand that moves at a very fast speed. Moving his hand backwards when catching the ball prolongs the time for the momentum to change so as to reduce the impulsive force. The large change in momentum within a short time interval produces a large impulsive force which drives the nail into the wood. This will reduce the impulsive force. A massive hammer head moving at a fast speed is brought to rest upon hitting the nail. 20 . This can prevent injuries to the participants. thus reducing the impulsive force. This is to increase the time of impact in order to reduce the impulsive force acting on his legs. A baseball player must catch the ball in the direction of the motion of the ball. A high jumper will bend his legs upon landing. This will reduce the chance of getting serious injury. Goal keepers will wear gloves to increase the collision time. The short impact time results in a large impulsive force on the wooden slab.

Stretching a solid causes its molecules to be displaced away from each other. Stretching a wire by an external force: Its molecules are slightly displaced away from one another. Strong attractive forces act between the molecules to oppose the stretching When the external force is removed: The attractive intermolecular forces bring the molecules back to their equilibrium separation. Molecules are at their equilibrium separation. Repulsive intermolecular force acts to push the molecules back to their original positions. Compressing a solid causes its molecules to be displaced closer to each other. Attractive intermolecular force acts to pull back the molecules to their original positions. No external force is applied.2. The wire returns to its original position 34 . Intermolecular force is equal zero.12 ELASTICITY Elasticity A property of matter that enables an object to return to its original size and shape when the force that was acting on it is removed.
