Kinematics

Scene 1
A pencil writes & draws the following (free hand): Physics Kinematics (Sketch of a car, then the car speeds away)

Scene 2
On screen: IIT JEE 2005 Convert the v-x graph shown here into an a-x graph.

v vo (

vo )x xo

Therefore, acceleration

dv v dx v ( o) ( o ) v dt xo d t xo vo v ){vo ( o ) x} xo xo

vo 2 vo 2 ( ) x( ) xo xo

Voiceover: Look at this question from IIT JEE 2005. We are given a v-x graph that needs to be converted into an a-x graph. Now, can we represent the given graph in the form of an equation? Its a straight line graph and the equation can be written as

v vo (

vo )x xo

Therefore, acceleration

dv v dx v ( o) ( o ) v dt xo d t xo vo v ){vo ( o ) x} xo xo

vo 2 vo 2 ( ) x( ) xo xo
Scene 3
On screen:

vo 2 vo 2 a ( ) x( ) xo xo

Voiceover: Now that we have got our relationship between a and x, we can easily plot the graph of a versus x. The graph looks like this.
