Motion & Forces

Constant Velocity Particle Model (CVPM)

Link to course materials:

In this section of the course, we will learn different ways to model motion in one-dimension where the velocity is constant. This will involve illustrations, desctiptions and mathematical equations. We will do this by:

  1. Conducting an experiment.
  2. Using the observations of this experiment to determine a relationship between position and time by:
    • Building graphs to model this relationship
    • Determining the equations that describe this relationship
  3. Extending the graphical and mathematical model to describe new situations

In addition to looking at one dimensional uniform motion, we will look at two dimensional uniform motion. Again determining graphical, mathematical and linguistic methods of describing this motion.

Creating a new page is a simple affair in Grav. Simply follow these simple steps:

  1. Navigate to your pages folder: user/pages/ and create a new folder. In this example, we will use explicit default ordering and call the folder 02.mypage.
  2. Launch your text editor and paste in the following sample code:

    ---
    title: My New Page
    ---
    # My New Page!
    
    This is the body of **my new page** and I can easily use _Markdown_ syntax here.
  3. Save this file in the user/pages/02.mypage/ folder as default.md. This will tell Grav to render the page using the default template.
  4. That is it! Reload your browser to see your new page in the menu.

NOTE: The page will automatically show up in the Menu after the "Home" menu item. If you wish to change the name that shows up in the Menu, simple add: menu: My Page between the dashes in the page content. This is called the YAML front matter, and it is where you configure page-specific options.
