Warmup Which Velocity Is It?
Section
3.1
Physics Daily Warmup 16
• There are two types of velocity that we encounter
in our everyday lives. Instantaneous velocity
refers to how fast something is moving at a
particular point in time, while average velocity
refers to the average speed something travels
over a given period of time.
• For each use of velocity described below,
identify whether it is instantaneous velocity or
average velocity.
• The speedometer on your car indicates you are
• going 65 mph.
• A race-car driver was listed as driving 120 mph
• for the entire race.
• A freely falling object has a speed of 19.6 m/s
after
• 2 seconds of fall in a vacuum.
• 4. The speed limit sign says 45 mph.

Acceleration
Section
3.1
In this section you will
• Define acceleration.
• Relate velocity and acceleration to the motion of
an object.
• Create velocity-time graphs.

Acceleration
Section
3.1
Changing Velocity
• You can feel a difference between uniform and
nonuniform motion.
• When you move in
• nonuniform motion, you feel pushed or pulled.
• In contrast, when you are in
• uniform motion and your eyes are closed, you
feel as though you are not moving at all.

Acceleration
Section

Changing Velocity
• Consider the motion diagrams below showing the
distance between successive positions.

Acceleration
Section
3.1
Changing Velocity
• There are two major indicators of the change in
velocity in this motion diagram. The change in
the spacing of the stick figures or dots and the
differences in the lengths of the velocity
vectors indicate the changes in velocity.

8
Acceleration
Section
3.1
Changing Velocity
• If an object speeds up, each subsequent velocity
vector is longer.
• If the object slows down, each vector is shorter
than the previous one.
• Both types of motion diagrams give an idea of how
an objects velocity is changing.

Acceleration
Section
3.1
Average and Instantaneous Acceleration
• The rate at which an objects velocity changes is
called the acceleration of the object. When the
velocity of an object changes at a constant rate,
it has a constant acceleration.
• The average acceleration of an object is the
change in velocity during some measurable time
interval divided by that time interval.
• Average acceleration is measured in m/s2.
• The change in velocity at an instant of time is
called instantaneous acceleration.

11
Acceleration
Section
3.1
Instantaneous Acceleration
• The instantaneous acceleration of an object can
be found by
• drawing a tangent line on the velocity-time
graph at the point of time in which you are
interested.
• The slope of this line is equal to the
instantaneous acceleration.

Example Tangent line is drawn at t 1.0 s and t
5.0 s
12
Acceleration
Section
3.1
Average Acceleration
• The average acceleration of an object can be
found by plotting two points which define the
time interval, connecting the points with a
straight line, ad finding the slope of the line.

Example slope of the line indicates the average
velocity between 1.0 and 5.0 s.

Velocity Time Graph Example
3.1
a) How would you describe the sprinters velocity
and acceleration as shown on the graph? From the
graph, note that the sprinters velocity starts
at zero, increases rapidly for the first few
seconds, and then, after reaching about 10.0 m/s,
remains almost constant.

b) What is his instantaneous acceleration at t
1 second and t 5 seconds? Instantaneous
acceleration Draw a tangent to the curve at t
1.0 s and t 6.0 s. Find the slope of each line.
15
Section
Velocity Time Graph Example
3.1
Solve for acceleration at 1.0 s
Solve for acceleration at 5.0 s
The acceleration is not constant because it
changes from 3.4 m/s2 to 0.03 m/s2 at 5.0 s. The
acceleration is in the direction chosen to be
positive because both values are positive.

c) What is his average acceleration between 1 and
5 seconds? Average acceleration Draw a line
between the points at t 1 s and t 5 s. Find
the slope of the line.
The slope is 4 m/s 5 s 0.8 m/s2

Section
3.1
Positive and Negative Acceleration
• These four motion diagrams represent the four
different possible ways to move along a straight
line with constant acceleration.
• Positive direction, speeding up
• Positive direction, slowing down
• Negative direction, speeding up
• Negative direction, slowing down

18
Acceleration
Section
3.1
Positive and Negative Acceleration
• When the object is speeding up, the velocity and
acceleration vectors point in the same direction.
(case 1 and 3)
• When the object is slowing down, the velocity and
acceleration vectors point in opposite directions
(case 2 and 4)
• Both the direction of an objects velocity and
its direction of acceleration are needed to
determine whether it is speeding up or slowing
down.

19
Acceleration
Section
3.1
Positive and Negative Acceleration
• An object has a positive acceleration when the
acceleration vector points in the positive
direction and a negative acceleration, when the
acceleration vector points in the negative
direction.
• The sign of acceleration does not indicate
whether the object is speeding up or slowing down.

20
Acceleration
Section
3.1
Determining Acceleration from a v-t Graph
• Velocity and acceleration information also is
contained in velocity-time graphs.
• Graphs A, B, C, D, and E, as shown on the right,
represent the motions of five different runners.
• Positive velocity in this graph means the
direction is east. Negative velocity means the
direction is west.

21
Section
Determining Acceleration from a v-t Graph
3.1
• Describe the direction of motion, velocity and
acceleration for
• Graph A
• Zero slope means zero acceleration constant
velocity towards the east.
• Graph B
• Starting with zero velocity, picking up speed,
moving towards the east. The straight line
indicates constant acceleration.
• Graph C
• Moving towards the east while slowing down and
eventually stopping. Slowing down with a constant
negative acceleration.

22
Section
Determining Acceleration from a v-t Graph
3.1
• Graph D
• Moving towards the west while slowing down, turns
around, then moves east while speeding up.
• Graph E
• Moving west with constant velocity, zero
acceleration.
• Remember, for a velocity-time graph
• - positive velocity occurs when the line is
anywhere above the x-axis
• - positive velocity means the object is moving
in the positive direction, which might be
east, to the right, etc.
• - the slope of the line indicated the
acceleration
• - a straight line means constant acceleration

23
Acceleration
Section
3.1
Determining Acceleration from a v-t Graph
• The following equation expresses average
acceleration as the slope of the velocity-time
graph.
• Average acceleration is equal to the change in
velocity, divided by the time it takes to make
that change.

Example Suppose you run a wind sprints back
and forth across the gym. You run at a speed of
4.0 m/s toward the wall, touch, and run back at
the same speed. The whole trip takes 10 seconds.
What is your average acceleration if the positive
direction is toward the wall?

interval is known, then it can be used to
determine how much the velocity changed during
that time.

Motion with Constant Acceleration
Section
3.2
Velocity with Average Acceleration
• In cases in which the acceleration is constant,
the average acceleration, a, is the same as the
instantaneous acceleration, a.
• The equation for final velocity can be rearranged
to find the time at which an object with constant
acceleration has a given velocity.
• It also can be used to calculate the initial
velocity of an object when both the velocity and
the time at which it occurred are given.

• The slopes from the position time graph can be
used to create a velocity-time graph as shown on

39
Motion with Constant Acceleration
Section

Position with Constant Acceleration
• A velocity-time graph does not contain any
information about the objects position.
• However, the velocity-time graph does contain
information about the objects displacement.

Position with Constant Acceleration
• On the graph shown on the right, v is the height
of the plotted line above the t-axis, while ?t is
the width of the shaded rectangle. The area of
the rectangle, then, is v?t, or ?d. Thus, the
area under the v-t graph is equal to the objects
displacement.
• The area under the v-t graph is equal to the
objects displacement.

Acceleration Due to Gravity
• free fall the motion of a body when air
resistance is negligible and the motion can be
considered due to the force of gravity alone.
• After a lot of observation, Galileo concluded
that, neglecting the effect of the air, all
objects in free fall had the same acceleration.
• It didnt matter what they were made of, how
much they weighed, what height they were dropped
from, or whether they were dropped or thrown.
• The acceleration of falling objects, given a
special symbol, g, is equal to 9.80 m/s2.
• The acceleration due to gravity is the
acceleration of an object in free fall that
results from the influence of Earths gravity.

Free Fall
Section

Acceleration Due to Gravity
• At the top of the flight, the balls velocity is
0 m/s. What would happen if its acceleration were
also zero? Then, the balls velocity would not be
changing and would remain at 0 m/s.
• If this were the case, the ball would not gain
any downward velocity and would simply hover in
the air at the top of its flight.
• Because this is not the way objects tossed in the
air behave on Earth, you know that the
acceleration of an object at the top of its
flight must not be zero. Further, because you
know that the object will fall from that height,
you know that the acceleration must be downward.

• Amusement parks use the concept of free fall to
design rides that give the riders the sensation
of free fall.
• These types of rides usually consist of three
parts the ride to the top, momentary suspension,
and the plunge downward.
• When the cars are in free fall, the most massive
rider and the least massive rider will have the
same acceleration.

Answer 2
• Answer B

Reason Since the ball is thrown upwards, the
velocity and acceleration are in opposite
directions, therefore the speed of the ball
decreases. After 1 s, the balls velocity is
reduced by 9.8 m/s (as acceleration due to
gravity is 9.8 m/s2), so it is now traveling at
25 m/s 9.8 m/s 15.2 m/s.
