Motion in One Dimension
101110510307001011304Motion in One DimensionThe study of motion is called kinematics, and it is here that we begin our study of physics. We will follow a method that has proven very effective in science. We start by studying simple situations and then study gradually more complex physical problems. In this chapter we consider motion in one dimension, without regard to the forces that influence the motion. In the next chapter, we will extend the discussion to motion in two or three dimensions, but first we need a good understanding of the basic concepts involved, namely, displacement, velocity, and acceleration.
