#### Storyboard Text

• HEY BESTIE! We should go to the park and play catch! ﻿﻿
• One generic day after school in Fenelon Falls, Ontario...
• OH  YEA... cuz there's nothing better we could be doing.  ﻿
• Sure. Why not?﻿﻿
• Before we start, we should use kinematics to figure out what distance you should stand at to catch my throw!
• 10 minutes later... at the park...
• Alrighty. Sounds scientific-ish.
• To do that we'll need to find the speed you throw at first. For that you have to throw the ball, and i will measure the distance it goes and how long it takes to hit the ground. Then we can simply use the d=v/t equation to determine your throwing speed.
• ﻿Oh crap... I think I threw a little too hard.
• You don't say...
• Oy Vey... At least it was a constant speed  you threw at. let's go look for  that stupid ball.
• Wait... speed is a scalar , and velocity is a vector, right?
• Look, there's the ball over there.  Holy, you threw it a total of 200 meters!
• Yes it is. Now be quiet, you'll attract and animal or something. ﻿
• *Rustle rustle, sniff sniff*
• Uhh, cool. Can we get out of this forest? There's something in the bushes. Let's go.
• Soo, if the time it took to hit the ground out here was 8 seconds and the distance was 200m then V=200/8. So you threw at a speed of 25m/s.
• Ok. That's a plan. Lets go home, I give up on catch.
• Next time you want to trick me into doing physics lets just go watch cars or something. We can calculate their acceleration or something using the equations ﻿D= V1t+1/2at2 or V﻿2 ﻿﻿= V ﻿﻿1 + at.
