4434Describing Motion with Position vs. Time Graphs
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=77659
Introduces position vs. time graphs. Discusses what their shape and slope mean, and how to determine slope. Includes diagrams, definitions, interactive exercises, and links to animatons.Free Fall and the Acceleration of Gravity
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=77665
Describes what free fall and the acceleration of gravity are. (The acceleration due to gravity is approximated in this site as 10 m/s/s.) Shows how to represent free fall by graphs. Presents free fall equations of motion. Stresses that all objects accelerate at the same rate. Includes diagrams and definitions.Describing Motion with Diagrams
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=77658
Introduction to ticker-tape diagrams and vector diagrams. How these diagrams represent velocity and acceleration. Includes diagrams, definitions, interactive exercises, and links to animatons.Describing Motion with Equations
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=77666
Explains the 4 one-dimensional kinematic equations that describe an object's motion. Relates the kinematic equations to graphs of motion. Includes diagrams, definitions, examples, and practice problems with solutions.Describing Motion with Velocity vs. Time Graphs
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=77660
The meaning of shape and slope for velocity vs. time graphs. Explains the difference between positive and negative velocity, and positive and negative acceleration. How to relate the shape of a V vs. T graph to an object's actual motion. How to determine slopes and areas of these graphs. Includes diagrams, definitions, interactive exercises, and links to animatons.Describing Motion with Words
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=77657
An introduction to the language of kinematics. The focus is on kinematics terms/words (vector, scalar, distance, displacement, speed, velocity, acceleration) and not on mathematical equations. Includes diagrams, definitions, interactive exercises, and links to animatons.
