All About Motion [electronic resource]: Displacement, Velocity, and Acceleration

Video Education Australasia
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
With crystal-clear graphics and calculation examples, this program introduces concepts of scalar and vector quantities and provides a solid grounding in kinematics. Viewers learn about vector and scalar quantities and their units, as well as distance and displacement, speed and velocity, and the special case of uniform circular motion. Acceleration is defined in terms of velocity change over time, including negative acceleration and an analysis of centripetal acceleration in a circular path with constant speed. Galileo's inclined plane experiment is discussed in conjunction with calculations used to measure acceleration on inclined planes.
