cause this motion.

acceleration.

Distance and displacement

The distance a body has travelled is literally the amount of

ground it has covered during its motion.

Displacement is a vector quantity.

Displacement describes how far a body is from its starting

point and in what direction.

Distance and displacement are measured in metres, m.

Speed, velocity and acceleration

The speed of a body relates to how fast the body is travelling.

Velocity is a vector quantity.

The velocity of a body relates to how fast the body is travelling

and in what direction. It is the rate at which a body changes its

position.

Speed and velocity are measured in metres per second, ms 1.

Acceleration can be a scalar or a vector quantity.

Acceleration is the rate of change of speed or velocity.

It is measured in metres per second per second, ms 2.

Negative acceleration is often called deceleration or

retardation.

Motion graphs

The most common graphs are position-time, speed-time,

velocity-time and acceleration-time graphs.

The gradient of a distance-time graph gives speed.

The gradient of a displacement-time graph gives velocity.

The gradient of a velocity-time graph gives acceleration.

The area under a speed-time graph gives the distance

travelled.

The area under a velocity-time graph gives the change in

displacement.

The area under an acceleration-time graph gives the change

in velocity.

The lift accelerates with a constant acceleration of 1 ms 2

until it reaches a constant velocity of 4 ms1.

It then travels at this constant velocity for t seconds before

decelerating with a constant deceleration of 2 ms2 until it

reaches the ground floor.

Given that the man has descended 44 m,

a) sketch the velocity-time graph of the lift and use it to find t

b) sketch the acceleration-time graph of the lift.

Graphs example 2

The car accelerates from rest to a constant speed of 28 ms 1.

The motorcycle accelerates from rest to a constant speed of

25 ms1 in 10 seconds.

After travelling for 90 seconds the car hits traffic and

decelerates to a constant speed of 22 ms1 in 5 seconds.

The motorcycle is unaffected by the traffic and maintains his

speed.

The motorcycle overtakes the car after they have both

travelled 3700 m.

Draw a speed-time graph and use it to find the time when the

motorcycle overtakes the car and how long the car was initially

accelerating for.

The motorbike overtakes the car after travelling 3700 m so,

The motorbike travels for 153 seconds before overtaking the

Graphs solution 2

Since the area under the graph for the car between 0 and 153

seconds is equal to 3700 so we can write,

14t2 = 221

Therefore the car was initially accelerating for 15.8 s (to 3 s.f.)

Formulae for constant acceleration

acceleration then there are five equations of motion that can

be used to determine missing quantities.

v = u + at Where

s = displacement in metres

s = 21 (u + v )t u = initial velocity in ms1

s = ut + 21 at 2 v = final velocity in ms1

a = acceleration in ms2

s = vt 21 at 2 t = time taken in seconds

the suvat formulae.

For vertical motion acceleration due to gravity is g, 9.8ms2.

v = u + at

v over time t can be illustrated using a velocity-time graph.

Velocity (ms1) By definition, acceleration is

the rate of change of velocity.

v

The constant acceleration a is

therefore given by the gradient

of the graph. So

an object with initial velocity u and final velocity v over time t.

Velocity (ms1) This distance is given by the

area under the graph.

v

This area is a trapezium with

parallel sides of length u and v

and width t. So

s = 21 (u + v )t

s = ut + at2

= ut + 21 t (v u )

vu

a= so at = v u

t

This gives us distance travelled = ut + 21 t ( at )

So s = ut + 21 at 2

22 of 37 Boardworks Ltd 2005

s = vt at2

= vt 21 t (v u )

We have shown that at = v u

This gives us distance travelled = vt 21 t ( at )

So s = vt 21 at 2

23 of 37 Boardworks Ltd 2005

v2 = u2 + 2as

v = u + at 1

u + v

s= t 2

Rearranging equation 1 to make t the subject gives

(v u )

t=

a

Substituting this into equation 2

u + v v u

s =

2 a

2as = (u + v )(v u )

2as = v 2 u 2

So v 2 = u 2 + 2as

height above the ground that the stone reaches and find the

time taken for the stone to reach the ground.

information given in the question is:

u = 10

a = g (Take g to be 9.8)

v = 0, and for t when s = 15.

Constant acceleration solution 1

v2 = u2 + 2as.

02 = 102 + 2(9.8)(s)

0 = 100 19.6s

19.6s = 100

stone reaches is 20.1 m (to 3 s.f.).

Constant acceleration solution 1

s = ut + 21 at2.

15 = 10t + 21 (9.8)t2

15 = 10t 4.9t2

Arranging all the terms on the left gives us the following

quadratic equation

4.9t2 10t 15 = 0

Using gives the solution

2a

t = 3.05 or t = 1.01 (to 3 s.f.)

Therefore the stone reaches the ground after 3.05 s (to 3 s.f.).

Constant acceleration example 2

via point B. It has a constant acceleration of 1 ms 2 and

passes point B after 6 seconds and point C after a further 4

seconds. Its velocity at C is 50 ms1. Calculate the velocity at

A and the distances AB and BC.

A B C

t=6 t = 10

v = 50

a = 1, t = 10 and v = 50. This requires the use of v = u + at.

Constant acceleration example 2

v = u + at

50 = u + (1)(10)

50 = u + 10

u = 40

Therefore the particle passes A with a velocity of 40 ms1.

The next part of the question asks for s when u = 40, a = 1 and

t = 6, requiring the use of s = ut + 21 at2.

s = ut + 21 at2

s = 40(6) + 21 (1)(6)2

s = 240 + 18 = 258

Therefore AB is 258m.

Constant acceleration example 2

and t = 10, again requiring the use of s = ut + 21 at2.

s = ut + 21 at2

s = 40(10) + 21 (1)(10)2

s = 400 + 50 = 450

Constant acceleration example 3

How high is the cliff?

is

a = 9.8

t = 3.2

u=0

To calculate s requires the use of the formula s = ut + 21 at2.

s = ut + 21 at2

1

s = (0)(3.2) + 2 (9.8)(3.2)2

s = 50.2 (to 3 s.f )

Therefore the height of the cliff is 50.2 m (to 3 s.f.)

straight road.

It passes a point A with a velocity of 8 ms1 and 5 seconds

later it passes a point B with velocity 25 ms1.

Find the velocity with which the car passes the mid-point of

AB.

The distance AB needs to be found first: u = 8, v = 25, t = 5

s = 21 (u + v)t

1

s = 2 (8 + 33)(5)

s = 82.5

the distance AB is 82.5 m and so the mid-point of AB is at a

distance of 41.25 m from A.

a = 3.4 the acceleration of the car is 3.4 ms2.

The velocity of the car as it passes the mid-point of AB can

now be found: u = 8, a = 3.4, s = 41.25

v2 = u2 + 2as

v2 = 82 + 2(3.4)(41.25) = 344.5

v = 344.5 the car passes the mid-point of AB with

a velocity of 18.6 ms1 (to 3 s.f.)
