##### Chapter 2: Linear Motion Assignment (worth 10 points maximum)

**This assignment aligns with the following Module 2: Chapter 2: Linear Motion objectives:**

- Define the relationship between position, velocity, and acceleration of an object in motion (CLO2)(CLO3)
- Define and compute distance (CLO2)(CLO5)
- Perform calculations using the kinematics equations for constant acceleration situation (CLO2)(CLO5)
- Define free fall and solve free fall problems. (CLO2)(CLO5)

**Part A - Defining Motion**

- What do you need to know to establish motion? How do you know if an object is in motion?
- Define distance, position, speed, velocity, and acceleration

**Part B – Solving Linear Motion Problems**

- What is the distance of the GBS cross-country team if they begin at the school, run 10 miles and finish back at the school?
- A car traveled 1025 kilometers from El Paso to Dallas in 13.5 hours. What was its average speed?
- What is the distance that a race car drives in the Indy 500?
- A car traveling north with a velocity of 30 m/s slows down to a velocity of 10 m/s within 10 seconds. What is the car’s acceleration?
- If the average speed of a car is 45 km/hr, how far can it travel in 40 min?
- Falling objects drop with an average acceleration of 9.8 m/s2
- If an object falls from a tall building, how long will it take before it reaches a speed of 49 m/s?
- What is meant by a freely falling object?
- What is the velocity acquired by a freely falling object 5 seconds after it is dropped? What is it after 6 seconds?
- What is the acceleration of a freely falling object 2 seconds after it has been released from a height of 100m?
- What is the acceleration of a freely falling object 5 seconds after it has been released from a height of 200 m?
