[S3 Physics PMCians]
What we did in 2 hours:
Last lesson, we focused on the basic concepts of Kinematics, and introduced terms such as displacement, velocity and acceleration. By now, most of you should be familiar with those terms, how to determine their direction and also how to derive them from a kinematics graph (whether its a displacement-time or velocity-time graph).
Kinematics is traditionally a challenging topic for many students. We went slow in the 1st lesson so we can go faster later. Lets win this race together!
What you take home:
You can download this simulator on kinematics to better understand the concepts. Tinker with the values and see how velocity and acceleration affects the motion of the man.
Next lesson, we will be focusing on how to solve problems with graph drawing. In the meantime, stay safe and keep on going (for kinematics)!
