The proper steps in doing any physics question are: Write down variables, draw your FBDs, and break it down into its x and y components.
Alright. So what would be what?
Because I've been doing it by division.
http://www.smarterthanthat.com/physics/physics-dont-panic-10-steps-to-solving-most-physics-problems/ starting at 4 or 5.
So do I need to subtract the two distances then divide by time?
Then I'm confused.
What's the difference between speed and velocity.
velocity is a vector I think
And what's the properties of a vector?
derived. I know velocity is m/s
So should I just ignore the 4.63 cm part and just stick with the 3.15 meters?
Here's a big hint: 3.15 m is for the speed, and the velocity is directly related to 4.63 cm.
Okay so it would be 3.15m/ 25.1s then?
Which one would that be solving for?
Because for the velocity you would take 3.15 *.0463/25.1
Okay so it would be 3.15m/25.1s =.125 m/s?
And what's that solving for?
that's solving for speed. The .125 m/s
How about velocity?
It would .00184 m/s
Thanks for the help!
(don't forget that velocity requires direction too)
Right. I think I got it. Thanks for your help!
Good stuff. seeya
