Chapter 2

Motion in two and three

The position of a particle can be described by
a position vector, with respect to a reference

𝒓 = 𝒙𝒊 + 𝒚𝒋 + 𝒛𝒌
𝒓 = −𝟑𝒊 + 𝟐𝒋 + 𝟓𝒌
The displacement of a particle is the change of
the position vector during a certain time.

∆𝒓 = 𝒙𝟐 𝒊 + 𝒚𝟐 𝒋 + 𝒛𝟐 𝒌 − (𝒙𝟏 𝒊 + 𝒚𝟏 𝒋 + 𝒛𝟏 𝒌)

∆𝒓 = 𝒙𝟐 − 𝒙𝟏 )𝒊 + (𝒚𝟐 − 𝒚𝟏 )𝒋 + (𝒛𝟐 − 𝒛𝟏 𝒌

∆𝒓 = ∆𝒙 𝒊 + ∆𝒚 𝒋 + ∆𝒛 𝒌
Example 1
A rabbit run across the parking lot on which a set of
coordinate axes has, strangely enough, been drawn. The
co-ordinates (meters) of the rabbit’s position as functions
of time t (seconds) are given by
𝑥 = −0.31𝑡 2 + 7.2𝑡 + 28
𝑦 = 0.22𝑡 2 − 9.1𝑡 + 30
(a) At t = 15 s, what is the rabbit’s position vector 𝑟 in unit
vector in magnitude-angle notation?
Example 1
We can write position vector 𝑟 as
𝑟 𝑡 = 𝑥 𝑡 𝑖 + 𝑦(𝑡)𝑗

Projectile motion

- Move in vertical plane but acceleration is downward (g)

- Such a particle is called a projectile
- It’s motion is projectile motion

The initial velocity of the projectile is:

The horizontal range

The horizontal range of a projectile is the horizontal

distance when it returns to its launching height
