Kinematics is a branch of mechanics that deals
with the concepts needed to describe a
motion regardless of the cause . It focuses
on the motion of an object including its factors The following formula was used to calculate the
such as acceleration and velocity. reaction time of an individual during the activity
In kinematics, there are three quantities:
displacement, velocity, and acceleration.
Velocity is a vector quantity that refers to the
rate at which an object changes its position. The
√ 2h
change in position from a starting point to an
end point is called displacement. Where,
t = time
∆x h = distance measured using a meter
Average velocity = ∆t stick
g = 9.8 m/s2 , acceleration due to gravity
Instantaneous velocity is the velocity of a
particular time.
3. Methodology
Instantaneous velocity = lim
