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 ...]]>

Dr. Shini Somara and a couple of kinematic equations. Crash Course Physics Look, I know there’s a huge galaxy-shaped hole in your heart ever since Crash Course Astronomy aired its final episode in Jan...]]>

In physics, kinematics is the study of describing and modeling how objects move. Kinematic equations can be used to determine all sorts of information about an object's motion, such as how far a home ...]]>

This is really just the kinematic equation (which I previously talked about). Now, here is the position of the ball (with respect to the Earth). After the ball is thrown, there is ONLY the gravitation...]]>

"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...]]>

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...]]>

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 ...]]>

In that video, the jumper takes about 1.5 seconds to get from the highest point to the landing. Using some kinematic equations, (or the work-energy principle) I can find a couple of useful things. How ...]]>
