Slide1

Graphs of Motion: P-T, V-T, and A-T

September 9-10, 2014

Slide2

We know how to draw and interpret position vs time (P-T) graphsStraight lines = Positive slope Negative slope: Zero slope:

Constant velocity / NO acceleration

v = +

v = -

v = 0

Slide3

We know how to draw and interpret position vs time (P-T) graphsCurved lines =

Accelerated motion

v = +a = +

v = -a = +

v = +

a = -

v = -

a = -

Slide4

Take a minute a look at your graph of motion … do you still think it is correct?

If not, fix it!

Slide5

V-T graphs

What do you think these mean?

v

= +, a = 0

v

= +, a = +

v

= +, a = -

v

= -, a = 0

v = -, a = -

v

= -, a = +

Think, Pair, Share

Rules for V-T graphsHorizontal lines: Positive slopes: Negative slopes:Lines above the x axis: Lines below the x axis:

a = 0

a = +

a = -

v = +

v

= -

Slide6

Which runner(s) have the greatest speed?

ACB & DE

How do you know

?

Slide7

Which runners are slowing down?

AEC & DE &DNone of them

Slide8

Which runners are changing direction?

ACDENone of them

How do you know

Slide9

You Do: Interpreting V-T Graphs

Use the graph of the motion of a toy train, below, to answer the questions.

When is the train’s speed constant?When was the train’s velocity positive?When is the train’s acceleration positive?When did the train slow down?

From B-C, from D-E, and from F-G

From A-B, from C-D, and from G-H

From E-F

Always!

Slide10

Putting it all together: Creating V-T and A-T graphs

To create a V-T graph, I will first determine the v and a of each segment of the graph.

v

= +a = 0

v

= 0a = 0

v

= -a = 0

v

= +a = +

v = +a = -

v

= +

a

= 0

v

= 0

a

= 0

v

= -

a

= 0

v

= +

a = +

v = +a = -

Slide11

Putting it all together: Creating V-T and A-T graphs

v

= +a = 0

v

= 0a = 0

v

= -a = 0

v

= +a = +

v = +a = -

v

= +

a

= 0

v

= 0

a

= 0

v

= -

a

= 0

v

= +

a = +

v = +a = -

a

= 0

a

= +

a

= -

Slide12

Creating V-T and A-T graphs: Testing your understanding

Study the problem, then when I say, show “thumbs up” or “thumbs down” to indicate whether the graph has been drawn correctly.

Slide13

Creating V-T and A-T graphs: Testing your understanding

Study the problem, then when I say, show “thumbs up” or “thumbs down” to indicate whether the graph has been drawn correctly.

Slide14

Creating V-T and A-T graphs: You Do

Draw the corresponding V-T and A-T
