**Ch. 3: Motion in Two Dimensions**

__Reading__

*College Physics*, Ch. 3

AP Classroom: Unit 1 "Kinematics" (continued)

AP Princeton Review: Ch. 4

__Topics__

Now we're working in 2 dimensions.

There are two main types of problems encountered:

- 'Crosswinds' or 'cross river' type problems
- Projectile motion problems

__Labs__

- Projectile Motion lab. Instructions will be given in lab.
- We will finish part II of Galileo's Inclined Plane lab. Instructions and handouts are in the previous unit.

__Ballistics lab__

We will fire a projectile at different angles, measuring the flight time, distance, and vertical drop.

From these, we can estimate the acceleration of gravity, 'g'.

I will explain and give instructions in lab. You should be able to complete the lab writeup in class.
