Term

Definition
Displacement is a vector that points from an object's initial position to its final position and has a magnitude that equals the shortest position between the two positions. Measured in meters (m).

What do objects in freefall experience? 

Definition
A constant acceleration due to gravity (9.8 m/s^{2 }on Earth) and negligible air resistance. All objects above the Earth's surface have the same acceleration due to gravity. 


Term
Graphical Analysis of Velocity and Acceleration 

Definition
The slope of a position v. time graph of an object is the object's velocity. The slope of a velocity v. time graph of an object is the object's acceleration. 


Term

Definition
Projectile motion is an idealized kind of motion that occurs when a moving object experiences only the acceleration due to gravity. The acceleration is only in the y direction (a_{y}) (a_{x} is always 0). The time to reach maximum height from one point equals the same time for an object to go from the maximum height back to the same point. The speed of a projectile depends only on its height above its launch point, not whether it's moving up or down. The speed of an object at its maximum height is 0 m/s.

Kinematics in Two Dimensions 

Definition
To put kinematics equations in two dimensions, simply put the values... in the x direction xdisplacement v_{x}final velocity v_{0x}initial velocity a_{x}acceleration in the y direction ydisplacement v_{y}final velocity v_{0y}initial velocity a_{y}acceleration ...into the kinematics equations.
