Nonlinear Motion
1. MOTION IS RELATIVE
Example: Motion of a boat with respect to the
ground and with respect to the river.
Velocity of river
Velocity of boat with respect to river
Add the velocity of the river

VELOCITY - A VECTOR
QUANTITY
Scalars are quantities that are specified by
magnitude only.
 Examples: distance, time, mass, density
 Vectors are quantities that are specified by
magnitude and direction.
 Examples: displacement, velocity,
acceleration, force, momentum, angular
momentum

The Displacement Vector
What is the displacement
for this trip?
5 miles
370 north of east
4 miles east
3 miles north
3. PROJECTILE MOTION

Projectile motion is a combination of
vertical free-fall motion and horizontal
motion at a constant speed.
Parabola (approximately)

Demo - Ball projector and dropper

Demo - Monkey in tree

Demo - Cart and ball launcher

Demo - Wall parabola
The free-fall motion of a projectile near the surface
of the earth is very nearly parabolic.
A parabola is one of the of a conic sections.
Circle
Ellipse
Parabola
Hyperbola
For a particular range less than the maximum
and for a particular launch velocity,
two different launch angles will give that range.
The two angles add to give 900.
450 gives the maximum range.
Simulation
Free Fall Results
Horizontal motion is constant
 Vertical Motion is accelerated
 Rise time = Fall Time
 Final speed = Initial speed


Actual path and ideal path (free fall) are
different.

FAST-MOVING PROJECTILES SATELLITES

Lets throw stones horizontally with ever
increasing velocity.

The Earth’s curvature is 16 ft for every 5 miles
(4.9 m for 8 km).
Throw an object faster, faster, faster.

We draw in each trajectory for 1 second
Vescape = 7 mi/s = 11 km/s
Vcircle = 5 mi/s = 8 km/s

4. CIRCULAR MOTION
Linear speed and rotational speed

Linear speed is a distance divided by time.

Rotational speed is an angle measurement
divided by time.
Two Flies on a Turntable
Which fly has the
greater rotational speed?
Which fly has the
greater linear speed?
B
Same for both.
