VECTOR FUNCTIONS

12.4

Motion in Space:

Velocity and Acceleration

In this section, we will learn about:

The motion of an object

using tangent and normal vectors.

and normal vectors and curvature can be

used in physics to study:

The motion of an object, including its velocity

and acceleration, along a space curve.

Newton by using these methods to derive

Keplers First Law of planetary motion.

VELOCITY

space so that its position vector at

time t is r(t).

VELOCITY

Vector 1

of h, the vector

r (t + h) r (t )

h

approximates

the direction of the

particle moving along

the curve r(t).

VELOCITY

of the displacement vector per unit

time.

VELOCITY

velocity over a time interval of

length h.

VELOCITY VECTOR

Equation 2

at time t :

r (t + h) r (t )

v (t ) = lim

h 0

h

= r '(t )

VELOCITY VECTOR

the tangent vector and points in

the direction of the tangent line.

SPEED

is the magnitude of the velocity vector,

that is, |v(t)|.

SPEED

and from Equation 7 in Section 12.3,

we have:

ds

| v(t ) |=| r '(t ) |=

dt

= rate of change

of distance with

respect to time

ACCELERATION

the acceleration of the particle is defined as

the derivative of the velocity:

a(t) = v(t) = r(t)

Example 1

in a plane is given by:

r(t) = t3 i + t2 j

Find its velocity, speed, and acceleration

when t = 1 and illustrate geometrically.

Example 1

are:

v(t) = r(t) = 3t2 i + 2t j

a(t) = r(t) = 6t I + 2 j

Example 1

| v (t ) |= (3t ) + (2t )

2 2

= 9t + 4t

4

Example 1

When t = 1, we have:

v(1) = 3 i + 2 j

a(1) = 6 i + 2 j

|v(1)| = 13

Example 1

are shown here.

Example 2

speed of a particle with position vector

r(t) = t2, et, tet

Example 2

v (t ) = r '(t ) = 2t , e , (1 + t )e

t

a(t ) = v '(t ) = 2, e , (2 + t )e

t

| v (t ) |= 4t + e + (1 + t ) e

2t

2t

Example 2 with the velocity and acceleration

vectors when t = 1.

Section 12.2 can be used to find position

vectors when velocity or acceleration vectors

are known, as in the next example.

Example 3

r(0) = 1, 0, 0

with initial velocity

v(0) = i j + k

Its acceleration is

a(t) = 4t i + 6t j + k

Find its velocity and position at time t.

Example 3

v(t) = a(t) dt

= (4t i + 6t j + k) dt

=2t2 i + 3t2 j + t k + C

Example 3

vector C, we use the fact that

v(0) = i j + k

So,

C=ij+ k

Example 3

It follows:

v(t) = 2t2 i + 3t2 j + t k + i j + k

= (2t2 + 1) i + (3t2 1) j + (t + 1) k

Example 3

r(t) = v(t) dt

= [(2t2 + 1) i + (3t2 1) j + (t + 1) k] dt

= (t3 + t) i + (t3 t) j + (t2 + t) k + D

Example 3

So, the position at time t is given by:

r(t) = (t3 + t + 1) i + (t3 t) j + (t2 + t) k

in Example 3 was used to plot the path

of the particle here for 0 t 3.

to recover:

Velocity, when acceleration is known

t

v (t ) = v (t0 ) + a(u ) du

t0

t

r (t ) = r (t0 ) + v (u ) du

t0

then the acceleration can be found from

Newtons Second Law of Motion.

at any time t, a force F(t) acts on an object

of mass m producing an acceleration a(t),

then

F(t) = ma(t)

Example 4

a circular path with constant angular speed

has position vector

r(t) = a cos t i + a sin t j

show that it is directed toward the origin.

Example 4

the acceleration:

a(t) = v(t) = a2 cos t i a2 sin t j

Example 4

the force as:

F(t) = ma(t)

= m2 (a cos t i + a sin t j)

Example 4

Notice that:

F(t) = m2r(t)

This shows that the force acts in the direction

opposite to the radius vector r(t).

Example 4

the origin.

CENTRIPETAL FORCE

Example 4

(center-seeking) force.

Example 5

Angle of elevation

Initial velocity v0

Example 5

and the only external force is due to gravity,

find the position function r(t) of the projectile.

Example 5

(the horizontal distance traveled)?

Example 5

starts at the origin.

Example 5

we have:

F = ma = mg j

where g = |a| 9.8 m/s2.

Therefore, a = g j

Example 5

v(t) = gt j + C

where C = v(0) = v0.

Therefore,

r(t) = v(t) = gt j + v0

Example 5

r(t) = gt2 j + t v0 + D

However,

D = r(0) = 0

E. g. 5Equation 3

is given by:

r(t) = gt2 j + t v0

Example 5

of the projectile), then

v0 = v0 cos i + v0 sin j

Equation 3 becomes:

r(t) = (v0 cos )t i + [(v0 sin )t gt2] j

E. g. 5Equations 4

of the trajectory are:

x = (v0 cos )t

y = (v0 sin )t gt2

Example 5

you will see that y is a quadratic function

of x.

Example 5

of a parabola.

Example 5

of x when y = 0.

Setting y = 0, we obtain:

t = 0 or t = (2v0 sin )/g

Example 6

and angle of elevation 45 from a position

10 m above ground level.

Where does the projectile hit the ground?

With what speed does it do so?

Example 6

the initial position of the projectile is (0, 10).

by adding 10 to the expression for y.

Example 6

we have:

y = 10 + 150sin( / 4)t (9.8)t

No matter how an object moves through space,

its acceleration always lies in the plane of T and N

Recall that T gives the direction of motion and

accomplishments of calculus by showing how

the material of this chapter can be used to

prove Keplers laws of planetary motion.

astronomer Johannes Kepler (15711630)

Sir Isaac Newton was able to show that

these three laws are consequences of

We let r = r(t) be the position vector

So, a is parallel to r.

It follows that r x a = 0.

Therefore,

We may assume that h 0;

However, u u = |u|2 = 1

Also, |u(t)| = 1

Therefore,

Thus,
