Unit 1 – Motion in One Dimension

In this unit we will explore linear (one-dimensional) motion by asking the kinematic, or “how” questions: How long did it travel? (Time) How far did it travel? (Displacement) How fast did it travel? (Velocity and Acceleration.) We will then examine the kinematics of a falling object.
