This is why we invited Georgia Public Broadcasting over to our Porsche Experience Center in Atlanta to film two video tutorials with them: one on “Speed and acceleration” and the other on “Acceleratio...]]>

In kinematic equation problems, g stands for gravitational acceleration and g = 9.81m/s^2. If you are given an acceleration in terms of g you simply multiply the acceleration by 9.81. For example, let ...]]>

It can have both positive values for speeding and negative values for breaking. The Kinematic equations used for updating vehicle state are as follows x t+1 =x t +v t ∗cos(ψ t )∗dt y t+1 =y t +v t ...]]>

"Open your mind, Quaid! Open your mind!!!" If the perfectly aimed bullet meets the moving target, then we can say that finalPositions will coincide between the kinematic equations for the moving bulle...]]>

Depending on your application, it certainly beats trying to work out the fun kinematics equations… Anyway, the full guide available on Adrafuit’s learning system provides instructions on how to build ...]]>

With a few assumptions and basic kinematic equations, we can dig a little deeper into Penelope's wild ride through the clouds. Poor Penelope was in the air for 7.7 seconds of screen time. With this me...]]>

Think about an empty room. The room might contain, say, 10 25 air molecules. To describe the physics of the air, you might try to write down 10 25 kinematic equations, each one describing the motion o...]]>

Ok, so how do you find out how high this will go? I am not going to do this the obvious way. The obvious way is to use the kinematics equations and assume that the acceleration is 9.8 m/s 2 in the dow...]]>

we can compute that to reach 60 MPH (or 88 feet per second), we’ll need to accelerate for about 2.74 seconds (that’s just your basic “final velocity equals initial velocity plus acceleration times tim...]]>
