1.Another example of 1-D kinematics in novel circumstances is the effect of the slowing of Earth's rotation. Earth's rotation is slowing at approximately 1.7 ms/day/century. At the end of a century, by how many seconds will a clock that has not slowed at this rate differ from a clock that did slow at 1.7 ms/day/century?

Abstract

Here is a nice 1-D kinematics problem disguised in a musical (drumming) context. We think the novel perspective of the problem can enliven the study of the basic equations that describe motion under constant acceleration.
