This is an introduction to the concept of acceleration. There is also an example problem showing applying the brakes while driving a car in order to avoid hitting a basketball. Also included are…


This video starts with a simple acceleration problem and then addresses a commonly held misconception that a negative acceleration always means you are slowing down. I do this by way of examples. …


This lesson builds on what we learned about position as a function of time graphs. We start with velocity as a function of time graphs, determine what the motion would look like and then draw…


This video continues what we learned about UAM in our previous lesson. We work through a introductory problem involving a bicycle on which we have applied the brakes. Content Times: 0:28 Reading the…


In this lesson we continue to use what we have learned about solving Uniformly Accelerated Motion (UAM) problems. This problem is more complicated because it involves two, interconnected parts.…


Students sometimes have a difficult time understanding what acceleration in meters per second squared really means. Therefore, I present acceleration as meters per second every second instead. This…


Again with the graphs? Yes. Absolutely Yes. Graphs are such an important part of any science, especially physics. The more you work with graphs, the more you will understand them. Here we…


We experimentally determine the position, velocity and acceleration as a function of time for a street hockey puck that is sliding and slowing down. Is it uniformly accelerated motion? Content…


We get to start our Table of Friends today. Dimensions are your friends and there are so many dimensions to keep track of, so we create our Table of Friends to help us keep track of them. …
