Transcript and Presenter's Notes

Speed, velocity and acceleration

1 Both Mr Rabbit and Mr Tortoise took the same

round trip, but Mr Rabbit slept returned later.

Who runs faster?

No, I travelled longer distance every minute.

Me, as I spent less time on the trip.

Comment on their their argument.

2 A boy has been missing in a forest for 2 hours.

scale 1 cm 5 km

O

(a) If he walks at a speed of 4 km h1,

try to locate his possible positions on the map.

O

(b) What else is important to spot the boy?

The direction in which he has been walking.

1 Speed

- How can we describe how fast an object moves?

E.g. A car on Tolo Highway travels 90 km in 1

hour.

We say that the car travels at a speed of 90 km

h1.

1 Speed

How can we describe how fast an object moves?

Speed is a measure of how fast something moves.

Speed distance travelled per unit of time

SI unit m s1

or km h1 (for long distances)

a Average speed

1 Speed

A car travels at 50 km h1,

slows down to 0 km h1,

and speeds up again to 60 km h1.

Its average speed over the whole journey

overall distance travelled

total time of travel

a Average speed

1 Speed

Average speed does not tell the variations during

the journey.

On most trips, the speed at any instant is often

different from the average speed.

b Instantaneous speed

1 Speed

Instantaneous speed

- speed at any instant

The word speed alone ? instantaneous speed

Instantaneous speed ? distance travelled in an

extremely short time interval

Simulation

b Instantaneous speed

1 Speed

Speedometer tells the cars speed at any instant!

2 Velocity

Velocity is...

a speed in a given direction or

rate of change of displacement.

a vector quantity

velocity

a Speed with direction

2 Velocity

MTR drivers concern speed only.

speed 90 km h1

Pilots concern velocity (direction speed).

speed 300 km h1 direction west

b Average velocity

2 Velocity

overall displacement

Average velocity

total time of travel

direction of overall displacement

direction of velocity

c Instantaneous velocity

2 Velocity

- The velocity at any instant is called

instantaneous velocity.

If a car moves at a constant velocity...

its average and instantaneous velocities have

the same value.

Q1 The world record...

The world record of women 100-m race is 10.49 s.

What is the average speed?

100

9.53 m s1 or 34.3 km h1

Q2 In an orienteering event...

In an orienteering event, Maria and Karen reach

their control points at the same time.

start, 1000 am

Maria, 1030 am

Karen, 1030 am

Who runs in a higher average velocity?

Q2 In an orienteering event...

Who runs in a higher average velocity?

A Maria. B Karen. C Undetermined since their

paths are unknown. D Incomparable since they run

along different directions.

Q3 True or false

Average speed of an object ? magnitude of its

average velocity.

(T/F)

Note The distance travelled is equal to

magnitude of displacement only if it is a

straight-line motion. Speed is usually larger

than the magnitude of velocity.

Q4 True or false

A man takes a walk starting from rest and ending

at rest.

It is possible for him to attain an average speed

of 5 km h1 but he never goes faster than 5 km

h1.

(T/F)

3 Acceleration

- When a car moves faster and faster,

its speed is increasing (velocity changed).

3 Acceleration

When a car moves slower and slower,

its speed is decreasing (velocity changed).

3 Acceleration

When a car changes direction,

its velocity changes too.

3 Acceleration

Acceleration measures the change in velocity

Acceleration ?velocity per unit time

overall change in velocity

total time taken

vector quantity

m s2

Unit m s1 / s

3 Acceleration

If a car accelerates at 2 m s2, what does that

mean?
