Kinematics

The study of the motion of mechanical points, bodies and systems without consideration of their associated physical properties and the forces acting on them

Over the course of this unit we learn about motion (uniform and non-uniform). I’ve covered the topics of distance vs displacement, speed vs velocity, graphing motion, acceleration and what it does with gravity, and using vectors to explain motion.

I learned about two different quantities in physics, SCACAR and Vector. SCACAR quantities is a magnitude and a unit, an example of this would be 150kg. Vector quantities is a magnitude, unit and a direction denoted by “→”.

Work I did:

In these labs, I learned how much energy is transferred when a moving object collides with a stationary object, energy transfer between a car and truck collision. And gravitational enerygy
