# Kinematics Part 1: Horizontal Motion

TLDRIn this educational video, Professor Dave delves into the fundamentals of classical physics, focusing on mechanics, whichεδΈΊ kinematics and dynamics. Kinematics, developed by Galileo, deals with motion without considering forces, while dynamics examines the effects of forces on motion. The video introduces three core kinematic equations that relate velocity, position, and acceleration to time, and provides examples of their application in real-world scenarios, such as calculating a car's velocity and distance traveled with constant acceleration, and determining braking distance during deceleration.

###### Q & A

### What are the two main branches of mechanics in classical physics?

-The two main branches of mechanics in classical physics are kinematics and dynamics.

### Who largely developed the field of kinematics?

-The field of kinematics was largely developed by Galileo in the early 1600s.

### What does kinematics deal with?

-Kinematics deals with equations that describe the motion of objects without reference to any kind of forces.

### How does the study of dynamics differ from kinematics?

-Dynamics is the study of the effect that forces have on the motion of objects, unlike kinematics which does not consider forces.

### What are the variables included in kinematic equations?

-The kinematic equations include variables for displacement, velocity, acceleration, and time.

### What is the significance of the kinematic equations?

-The kinematic equations are significant because they revolutionized the understanding that mathematics could describe the motion of all objects, whether on earth or in space, despite the presence of variables like friction and atmosphere.

### What is the first fundamental kinematic equation?

-The first fundamental kinematic equation states that the velocity of an object at any time T is equal to the initial velocity plus the acceleration times time.

### How can you calculate the velocity of a car after 10 seconds with a constant acceleration of 2.5 m/sΒ²?

-You can calculate the velocity by multiplying the acceleration (2.5 m/sΒ²) by the time (10 seconds), resulting in a velocity of 25 m/s.

### What is the second fundamental kinematic equation?

-The second fundamental kinematic equation says that the position of an object with respect to a point of origin will be equal to its initial position plus the initial velocity times time plus one-half the acceleration times time squared.

### How can you find out how far a car will travel in 10 seconds with an initial velocity of 0 and an acceleration of 2.5 m/sΒ²?

-You can use the second fundamental kinematic equation, ignoring the initial velocity term, and calculate one-half times the acceleration (2.5 m/sΒ²) times the time squared (10sΒ²), resulting in a distance of 125 meters.

### What is the third fundamental kinematic equation?

-The third fundamental kinematic equation states that the velocity squared is equal to the initial velocity squared plus twice the acceleration times the displacement.

### How long will it take for a car moving at 27 m/s to come to a stop with a deceleration of -8.4 m/sΒ²?

-To find the time, you can use the first fundamental kinematic equation with a final velocity of 0, an initial velocity of 27 m/s, and an acceleration of -8.4 m/sΒ², which results in a stopping time of 3.2 seconds.

### What is the relationship between position and average velocity?

-Position is equal to the average velocity times the time interval, and the average velocity is equal to the final velocity plus the initial velocity divided by 2.
