This is an introduction to the concept of acceleration. There is also an example problem showing applying the brakes while driving a car in order to avoid hitting a basketball. Also included are…


This video starts with a simple acceleration problem and then addresses a commonly held misconception that a negative acceleration always means you are slowing down. I do this by way of examples. …


This lesson builds on what we learned about position as a function of time graphs. We start with velocity as a function of time graphs, determine what the motion would look like and then draw…


This is an introductory lesson about Uniformly Accelerated Motion or UAM. I show examples of 5 different objects experiencing UAM, some are even in slow motion. We also learn my simple way of…


This video continues what we learned about UAM in our previous lesson. We work through a introductory problem involving a bicycle on which we have applied the brakes. Content Times: 0:28 Reading the…


In this lesson we continue to use what we have learned about solving Uniformly Accelerated Motion (UAM) problems. This problem is more complicated because it involves two, interconnected parts.…


Students sometimes have a difficult time understanding what acceleration in meters per second squared really means. Therefore, I present acceleration as meters per second every second instead. This…


This is much more personal than my average video. I talk about my spelling inadequacies. (yes, i just spelled inadiquacies incorrectly, spell check fixed it, arg.) I use it as a tool to talk about…


Students often get confused by the difference between Instantaneous and Average. In this video we use a graph to compare and understand the two different concepts. Content Times: 0:28 Defining…


Again with the graphs? Yes. Absolutely Yes. Graphs are such an important part of any science, especially physics. The more you work with graphs, the more you will understand them. Here we…


We experimentally determine the position, velocity and acceleration as a function of time for a street hockey puck that is sliding and slowing down. Is it uniformly accelerated motion? Content…


We get to start our Table of Friends today. Dimensions are your friends and there are so many dimensions to keep track of, so we create our Table of Friends to help us keep track of them. …


Basic demonstration of how to use spreadsheets in an introductory physics class. Topics listed below. https://www.flippingphysics.com/spreadsheets.html This is an AP Physics 1 topic. Content…


An introduction to Displacement including many different descriptions of displacement. This video also describes the differences between displacement and distance. There are also three different…


This video introduces the definition of Velocity. It also walks through a simple, introductory average velocity example problem. At the end it defines speed and discusses the difference between…


This example problem works through finding the average velocity when we have multiple parts to the givens. It involves splitting the given information into separate parts, finding the total…
