The Kinematics Gallery features photos of bikers, amusement park riders, trains, trucks, snails, race cars, cliff jumpers and other objects that illustrate the concepts associated with kinematics. This gallery provides a short and illustrative overview of the concepts of kinematics and coordinates with nearly all lessons of the One Dimensional Kinematics chapter of The Physics Classroom Tutorial..

Lesson 1: Describing Motion with Words
Lesson 1 describes a variety of kinematic quantities and concepts, The distinctions between vectors and scalars, displacement and distance, and speed and velocity and the concept of acceleration are discussed. Items from the group's pool include photos of trains, sprinters, air hockey pucks, radar guns, baseball players, bikers, roller coaster cars, and much more. Photos complement many of the discussions from Lesson 1 of the One Dimensional Kinematics chapter of The Physics Classroom Tutorial.
