Physics in Motion

Motion in Two Dimensions

Once you understand motion in one dimension, it is time to take the next step: motion in two dimensions. Learn about position, velocity, and acceleration.

Position

Extend our understanding of position to two dimensions. Learn about how we describe the position of an object in two dimensions.

Velocity

Extend our understanding of velocity to two dimensions. Learn about how we describe the velocity of an object in two dimensions.

Acceleration

Extend our understanding of acceleration to two dimensions. Learn about how we describe the acceleration of an object in two dimensions.

Projectile Motion

A common type of motion that can be modeled by motion in two dimensions is projectile motion, which combines all of the previous concepts into one system.
