Linear Kinematics

The flashcards below were created by user pugsrule915 on FreezingBlue Flashcards.

  1. linear motion (translation)
    all parts of object moved same distance in same direction at same time
  2. linear kinematics
    kinematics of particles, objects, or systems undergoing linear motion
  3. position
    location of a pt with respect to origin
  4. linear displacement
    • change from pt’s initial position to final position
    • vector
  5. distance
    • length of path traveled between a pt’s initial and final position
    • scalar
  6. problem with avg velocity
    misses stuff bc just final – initial
  7. instaneous velocity
    most accurate using slope
