A: Vector Kinematics in Two Dimensions
(Vectors and Relative Velocity)
It is expected that students will demonstrate an ability to use vector
analysis to solve problems in
determining velocities, displacement, and time of travel of objects.
It is expected that students will:
A1. identify scalars and vectors
A2. identify the resultant vector and component vectors on vector
diagrams
A3. write vector equations describing the vector addition of two
or more velocities or displacements
A4. write vector equations describing the subtraction of two velocities
or displacements
A5. use graphical methods to resolve a vector into two perpendicular
components
A6. resolve a vector into components using trigonometry
A7. use graphical methods or trigonometry to add or subtract vectors
A8. describe relative velocity
A9. use vector analysis to determine velocities, displacement, and
time of travel for navigation problems
A10. gather and organize data, produce and interpret graphs, and
determine relationships between variables
