## Study Notes

### Kinematics

- The formula for acceleration is represented as a = (vf - vi) / t, where vf is final velocity, vi is initial velocity, and t is time.
- For constant acceleration or no acceleration, average velocity can be calculated as v = (vi + vf) / 2.

### Dynamics

- The force of gravity acting on an object is expressed as Fg = mg, where m is mass and g is acceleration due to gravity (approximately 9.81 m/sÂ²).
- The net force acting on an object can be calculated using Fnet = ma, where m is mass and a is acceleration.

### Two-Dimensional Motion

- The distance in the horizontal motion can be calculated with d = (vx)(t), where vx is horizontal velocity and t is time.
- Time of flight in a projectile motion can be determined by the formula t = (vi * sinÎ¸) / g, where vi is initial velocity, Î¸ is the launch angle, and g is acceleration due to gravity.

### Vertical Motion Components

- The vertical component of the initial velocity is found using Vy = (vi)(sinÎ¸).
- In free fall, the mass of the object does not influence its acceleration.

### Free Fall Characteristics

- The relationship between acceleration and falling objects indicates that when there is no velocity, there is no acceleration.
- Objects dropped experience a downward acceleration of +9.81 m/sÂ².

### Motion Dynamics

- For objects thrown upwards, the trajectory will eventually lead back down due to gravity.
- Nonzero acceleration results in a curve in the motion path.

### Acceleration Types

- Constant nonzero acceleration represents uniform acceleration, indicating a steady increase or decrease of velocity over time.

### Projectile Motion Analysis

- Increasing both the launch angle and the initial speed of a projectile will result in greater time of flight.
- A launch angle of 45 degrees maximizes the horizontal distance traveled by a projectile.

### Additional Factors in Motion

- The acceleration magnitude due to gravity is given by g = Gm/rÂ², relating gravitational force to mass and distance from the center of the Earth.
- If two balls are thrown from the same height, they will reach the ground simultaneously, assuming air resistance is negligible.

### Position and Velocity

- A ball thrown horizontally maintains a horizontal speed while being influenced by gravity vertically, where vi for vertical motion is zero.
- The horizontal velocity can be calculated using Vx = Vi * cosÎ¸, where Î¸ is the launch angle.

### Projectile Peak Characteristics

- At the peak of a projectileâ€™s trajectory, its vertical component of velocity equals zero, while horizontal components maintain their velocities.

### Graph Interpretation

- The slope of a position-time graph represents the object's velocity, indicating speed and direction of motion.
- The slope is calculated by the change in y (position) divided by the change in x (time).
