Can velocities add together? Yes, but only if they’re moving in the same direction Example: If you are paddling a boat South at 5 m/s & the stream is moving at 8 m/s South: Are their velocities adding together? Your boat will move at: 13 m/s South
Can velocities subtract from each other? Yes, but only if they’re moving in the opposite direction Example: If you are paddling a boat South at 10 m/s & the stream is moving North at 12 m/s: Your boat will move: 2 m/s North
What does each picture show? Velocities adding together 6 m/s Right 10 m/s Right 16 m/s Right + = Velocities subtracting 14 m/s Left 4 m/s Left 10 m/s Right = -

#1 #4 #1 None All 4 cars are moving at constant speed Avg. Speed = T. Dist./T. Time __________= 250 km/1 hr 250 km/hr
What is acceleration? The rate at which the velocity of a moving object increases What is the mathematical formula for acceleration? Acceleration =change in velocity time OR a = vfinal – vinitial t
1) What is the acceleration of an ice skater who changes velocity from 5 m/s north to 15 m/s north in 5 seconds? a = 15 m/s – 5 m/s 5 s a = vfinal – vinitial t a = 2 m/s2 North
2) How quickly would a race car accelerate if its velocity changed from 0 to 32 m/s in 4 seconds? a = 32 m/s – 0 m/s 4 s a = vfinal – vinitial t a = 8 m/s2

What is the motion of a freely falling object? Any object falling near the surface of the earth will accelerate at a rate of 9.8 m/s2 due to the pull of gravity.
Date: 10/19/2007 Friday Aim: What is Momentum? Do Now: Prepare for Motion Quiz Homework: Study for next week’s Exam on Motion & Forces
What is momentum? The mass of an object multiplied by its velocity, which determines how difficult it is to stop the object. The greater the momentum = greater energy the object has What is the mathematical formula for momentum? momentum = mass x velocity or p = mv
Date: 10/22/2007 Monday Aim: 1. What is Force? Do Now: 1. What 2 things does momentum depend upon? 2. What are units of momentum? Homework: Study for a Quiz on Forces.
What is a Force? A push or a pull that one object exerts on another. What are some examples of a force? Ex) A tow truck pulls a car, The wind pushes a flag, Gravity & Friction What is a Newton? The unit used to measure force Force = Mass X Acceleration 1N = kg.m/sec2
The attractive force between objects What is gravitational force? • Depends on the masses of the objects and the distance between them As mass increases, gravitational pull increases As distance increases, gravitational pull decreases
Where is the Gravitational Pull the greatest? 50 kg 1. 10 kg 10 m 2. 10 kg 10 kg 10 m
Where is the Gravitational Pull the greatest? 1. 10 kg 10 kg 10 m 2. 10 kg 10 kg 20 m
What is weight? The weight of an object is equal to the gravitational force exerted by Earth (9.8m/s2) on an object Where will you weigh more: on the Earth or on the Moon? Why?
Forces on an object that are equal in size & opposite in direction What are balanced forces? = 0 - The net force is zero because the two forces cancel each other out
Unequal forces working against each other produces motion in the direction of the larger force. What are unbalanced forces? 10N = 6N - 4N *In Opposite Directions, Forces Subtract

Newton’sLaws of MotionJ
The Law of Inertia What is Newton’s 1st Law of Motion? 1. Objects at rest tend to stay at rest unless acted upon by an unbalanced force. 2. Objects in motion tend to remain in motion (in constant velocity, along a straight path) unless acted upon by an unbalanced force. (such as friction)
This is what happens when your not wearing a seatbelt. Since the car is in motion you are also in motion, and when the wall stops the car.You continue to be in motion and fly forward.
When the truck is stopped by the car. The ladder continues in motion.
The tendency of an object to resist a change in motion. What is inertia? Inertia is related to an objects mass: the more mass an object has the greater its inertia and the more difficult it is to change its motion. Which would have more inertia an empty shopping cart or a full one?

Exists wherever 2 surfaces touch. What is friction? • It’s a force that acts in the opposite direction to motion. • It causes moving objects to slow down & stop. • It always produces heat.
