PH.5 a - Mass, Distance, Force, and Time

The student will investigate and understand the interrelationships among mass, distance, force, and time through mathematical and experimental processes. Key concepts include

a)  linear motion.

Bloom's Levels:  Analyze; Understand

Adopted: 2010

BIG IDEAS

  • I can determine how long it would take me to walk to the mall.

UNDERSTANDING THE STANDARD

  • Linear motion graphs include
    • displacement (d) vs. time (t)
    • velocity (v) vs. time (t)
    • acceleration (a) vs. time (t)
  • Position, displacement, velocity, and acceleration are vector quantities.
  • The concept of motion is described in terms of position, displacement, velocity, acceleration, and their dependence on time.
  • Graphical analysis is used as a representation of motion.

ESSENTIALS

In order to meet this standard, it is expected that students will

a) construct and analyze displacement (d) vs. time (t), velocity (v) vs. time (t), and acceleration (a) vs. time (t) graphs.

     solve problems involving displacement, velocity, acceleration, and time in one and two dimensions (only constant acceleration).
