# Year 11 Physics

## Module 1 | Kinematics

### Content 2: Motion on a plane

#### Lesson 1 | Analysing motion using vectors

• analyse vectors in one and two dimensions to:
– resolve a vector into two perpendicular components
– add two perpendicular vector components to obtain a single vector (ACSPH061)

• represent the distance and displacement of objects moving on a horizontal plane using:
– resolution of components of vectors (ACSPH060)

#### Lesson 2 | Relative motion

• describe and analyse algebraically, graphically and with vector diagrams, the ways in which the motion of objects changes, including:
– velocity
– displacement (ACSPH060, ACSPH061)

• describe and analyse, using vector analysis, the relative positions and motions of one object relative to another object on a plane (ACSPH061)

#### Lesson 3 | Using vectors to analyse relative motion in 2D

• analyse the relative motion of objects in two dimensions in a variety of situations, for example:
– a boat on a flowing river relative to the bank
– two moving cars
– an aeroplane in a crosswind relative to the ground (ACSPH060, ACSPH132)
