I need help solving question 7 in the APlus Physics 1 essentials book in appendix A on kinematics. There isn't much of an explanation for the answer. Thanks!

Name: AP Physics C: Integrals in Kinematics Review (Mechanics) Category: Kinematics Date Added: 20170402 Submitter: Flipping Physics Calculus based review of definite integrals, indefinite integrals, and derivatives as used in kinematics. Graphs of position, velocity, and acceleration as a function of time are compared using derivatives and integrals. Two of the uniformly accelerated motion (or kinematics) equations are derived using indefinite integrals. For the calculus based AP Physics C mechanics exam. Want Lecture Notes? Content Times: 0:11 Rearranging the acceleration equation to get change in velocity 1:41 Rearranging the velocity equation to get change in position 2:06 Comparing graphs of position, velocity, and acceleration as a function of time 3:28 Using the integral to solve for one of the uniformly accelerated motion equations 4:44 Using the integral to solve for a second uniformly accelerated motion equation FYI: I do not teach integrals until we get to Work. By then the students who are taking calculus concurrently with AP Physics C Mechanics have had enough experience with derivatives that they only freak out a little bit when I teach them integrals.

Since grade school I have been taught that math is in everything you do. Since the beginning of this semester of taking physics, I have learned that physics is involved in every single thing. When my class learned kinematics, my thought process of things change. Now when I see an object fall or thrown I think of the math that goes into its free fall or its projectile motion. When I'm driving I also think about my velocity and acceleration in my car. Since learning physics, it has taught me a lot and has also changed my perspective on the world.

During my first week of physics class i felt completely lost! I wanted to understand physics so badly! I love math; so I was confused as to why I was not understanding physics. We were learning kinematics and I had no idea what was happening. What's velocity? What's acceleration? These were some of the questions I was asking myself. After much practice I finally got the hang of it! Looking back at kinematics it seems so easy! Hopefully with some of the harder material I will feel the same way! One of my favorite experiments we did in class was watching what happens with an electroscope. An electroscope is a model that demonstrates the movement of electric charge. Check out the video I posted below to learn all about an electroscope!

Yes I know bowling is kind of boring compared to some of my other posts but there is actually a lot of physics behind it. One of the main topics or concepts behind it is kinematics. Bowling like anything in motion involves kinematics and forces. If you break it down, bowling is all about velocity and direction of that velocity. Often in bowling once you throw the ball you are looking to get a curve. The following is the general path of the ball and where the best spot on the pins is to get a strike. With this slight curve there are changes in velocity of the ball. Because velocity is a vector there is a direction. That direction changes as the ball curve changes. When the ball comes around the curve the velocity is at an angle going towards the gap between the head pin and the one just to the left or right of that depending on whether you are right or left handed. You want to get the curve because with this direction of velocity the ball will angle into the pins and will get you the end result you want. It is easier to get a strike that way then to just throw the ball straight.
