3 Calculating displacement using area of a triangle



Number One


Activity One:

What is Inertia? Demo with “Pat”


Activity Two

Besides uniform motion, what are three things that remain constant.

Paradox: Define? Example?

Change: examples of change?

Humor: Is it unique to humans?


Collect Data

Number Two

Go through review questions.

Questions to focus on:

a)   What “story” is a graph telling? (matching a graph with a vocab term)

b)   How do we use speed and time to calculater more than acceleration? ( How can we have positive velocity but negative acceleration?)



Number Three


Using the area of a triangle ( 1/2bxh) to calculate displacement.


Area of a triangle is ½ base time height


Substitute values of base as time and height as velocity.


Displacement = ½ times sec/1 times meters/sec


Units that cancel out are time!


So final unit is distance or distance from original point.





Total time = 5 seconds

Final Speed = 20 meters / second


D= ½ x 5 sec x 20 m/s


= ½ x 100 m


= 50 meters!
