Vectors: Velocities, Accelerations, and Forces

csep10.phys.utk.edu/astr161/lect/history/velocity.html

... the same magnitudes and the same orientations. Velocity and Acceleration Let us now give a precise definition of velocity and acceleration. They are vectors, so we must give a magnitude and a direction for them. The velocity v and the ...

... make sure we talk about the same things when we learn about Physics and Football.   Let us  first explore speed, velocity and acceleration in football.   Questions?   Send e-mail to mbreinig@utk.edu

Velocity

electron6.phys.utk.edu/101/CH1/velocity.htm

... We write a = (v 2 - v 1 )/(t 2 - t 1 ) = D v/ D t,  D v = a D t. D v is the change in the do-wnward component of the velocity. If we write final velocity = initial velocity + change in vel-ocity, then we have v = v 0 + a D t. If we start ...

Speed and Velocity

... is d = (6 m) i + (1 m) i = (7 m) i . Its velocity is v = (7 m)/(2 s) i = (3.5 m) i . Accel-eration Whenever the velocity of an object is changing, then the object is accelerating.  Assume that at a time t 1 the object has velocity v 1 , ...

Neutron Stars

... how far the neutron star has traveled since the explosion and therefore its average velo-city. By these means, the neutron star is found to have a space velocity of about 1000 km/s, suggesting that it was kicked out of the supernova ...

Looking Back in Time

csep10.phys.utk.edu/astr162/lect/cosmology/lightspeed.html

... Back in Time A Cosmic Speed Limit The velocity of light plays a central role is astronomy and in physics. According to the Einstein's Theory of Relativity, nothing in our universe can exceed the velocity of light; thus, it is a kind of ...
