When you’re driving your car…

Warning: Professional driver, do not attempt!

I felt that acceleration.

Position, Velocity & AccelerationPosition, Velocity & Acceleration How do you find a function that describes a physical event?

Steps for Modeling Physical Data

1) Perform an experiment.

2) Collect and graph data.

3) Decide what type of curve fits the data.

4) Use statistics to determine the equation of the curve.

Position, Velocity & AccelerationPosition, Velocity & Acceleration A crab is crawling along the edge of your desk. Its location (in feet) at time t (in seconds) is given by P (t ) = t 2 + t.

a) Where is the crab after 2 seconds?

b) How fast is it moving at that instant (2 seconds)?

ConclusionConclusion The velocity function is found by taking the derivative The velocity function is found by taking the derivative of the of the positionposition function.function.

In order for an object traveling upward to obtain In order for an object traveling upward to obtain maximum position, its instantaneous velocity must maximum position, its instantaneous velocity must equal equal 00..

As an object hits the ground, its velocity is not 0, its As an object hits the ground, its velocity is not 0, its heightheight is 0.is 0.

The acceleration function is found by taking the The acceleration function is found by taking the derivative of the derivative of the velocityvelocity function.function.
