The title says it all: this blog features physics videos found everywhere on the web: animations, demonstrations, lectures, documentaries.
Please go here if you want to suggest other nice physics videos, and here if I mistakingly infringed your copyrights. If you understand French, you'll find a huge selection of physics videos in French in my other blog Vidéos de Physique.

One dimensional motion with constant acceleration

Graphs of position, velocity and acceleration in funciton of time for an object thrown upward vertically (air resistance is neglected).

  • The acceleration vs time graph is an horizontal line, because acceleration is a constant (-9,8 m/s^2).
  • The velocity vs time graph is a straight line; its slope is negative, because this slope equals the acceleration.
  • The position vs time graph is a parabola.  The slope of the tangent equals the velocity.
