Explore displacement, velocity, and acceleration [Average Velocity: v sub av = (d sub f - d sub i)/(t sub f - t sub i); Final Velocity: v sub f = (v sub i) + a delta t; Final Velocity of Falling object: v sub f = (v sub i) + g delta t; Average Acceleration: a sub av = (v sub f - v sub i)/(t sub f - t sub i); Displacement of Falling object: d = (v sub i) delta t + (½)a(delta t²); Displacement of Falling object: delta d = v sub i delta t + (½)g(delta t²)].
Analyze vector diagrams and solve composition and resolution problems for force and momentum.
Explore characteristics of rectilinear motion and create displacement-time graphs (velocity), velocity-time graphs (acceleration and distance).
Investigate the characteristics of centripetal motion and centripetal acceleration [Centripetal Force: F sub c = (mv²)/r; Angular Velocity: omega=(delta theta)/delta t; Angular Acceleration: alpha = (delta omega)/delta t].
Evaluate the dynamics of systems in motion including friction, gravity, impulse and momentum, change in momentum, and conservation of momentum. [Coefficient of Friction: mu = (F sub f)/(F sub N); Law of Universal Gravitation: F sub G = (G(m sub 1)(m sub 2))/d²; Impulse and Change of Momentum: F delta t = m delta t].
