The motion of an object can be described by its position and velocity as functions of time and by its average speed and average acceleration during intervals of time.
Compare the calculated and measured speed, average speed, and acceleration of an object in motion, and account for differences that may exist between calculated and measured values.
Objects undergo different kinds of motion (translational, rotational, and vibrational).
Compare the translational and rotational motions of a thrown object and potential applications of this understanding.
The motion of an object changes only when a net force is applied.
Create simple models to demonstrate the benefits of seatbelts using Newton's first law of motion.
The magnitude of acceleration of an object depends directly on the strength of the net force, and inversely on the mass of the object. This relationship (a=Fnet/m) is independent of the nature of the force.
Measure and describe the relationship between the force acting on an object and the resulting acceleration.
