## Chapter 2: Motion along a Straight Line

**Study Plan **

The concepts of velocity and acceleration introduced in Chapter 2 will permit us to answer the following questions:

- What is the magnitude of the acceleration during the launch? (Example 3, page 40)

- How is the distance traveled by the aircraft related to the acceleration and the time? (Example 5, page 44)

- How does the acceleration during launch compare with the acceleration of free fall? (Example 11, page 53)

#### Organize

- Prepare for lecture by reading the assigned sections from Chapter 2 in your textbook or ebook. This will provide an organizing framework for concepts introduced in lecture, and help you take better notes.

- Take the checkup quiz and work the Checkup questions in your textbook to assess your understanding of basic concepts. Take note of any topics you need to review further.

- Review the
**Examples**from your textbook. These progress from simple to complex, and provide concrete illustrations of the concepts discussed.

- Review the “General Guidelines”
**Problem Solving Techniques**box from your textbook. - Review the
**Math Help**box on Differential Calculus: Rules for Derivatives from your textbook.

#### Learn

- Re-read Chapter 2 and review your lecture notes.
- Access the
**Online Concept Tutorials**given for this chapter. Tutorials use animation and interactive exercises to help develop your understanding of fundamental topics.Acceleration

Sections: 2.4, 2.5, 2.6 - Use the FlashCards to test your memory for new key terms and equations.
- Work the end of chapter
**Problems**and**Review Problems**assigned by your instructor. If your instructor has assigned**SmartWork**online homework, login from the right navigation pane.

#### Connect

- Throughout the text
**Physics in Practice**boxes explore real-world applications of core concepts in specific detail. In Chapter 2 see:Physics in Practice: Stopping Distances - Physics in the News offers additional real-world physics applications, and a daily dose of science-based news.
