One-dimensional kinematic practice problems

Exam Level Practice Problem

Two objects start from the same location and time but have different accelerations and initial velocities. We are asked to calculate the final location they meet again, and the time this process takes. In addition, we need to sketch the position vs. time (x-t) plot of the objects.

Two-dimensional kinematic practice problems

Ultimate Level Practice Problem

Two objects, one with a contact speed, the other one with a constant speed race. First, we are asked to work on a 1D kinematic problem; then, we take the final values of part (a) and use them as the initial values of part (b). In part (b), we work on a complex projectile motion with a contact acceleration along the x and y-axis.
