Describe the relationships among position, distance, displacement, speed, velocity, acceleration, and time, and perform simple calculations using these variables for both linear and circular motion
- position - point or area it occupies in space
- distance - how much ground is covered, has magnitude but no direction
- displacement - change in position, difference between an object's final and initial position, Delta s
- speed - change in position of the object over time, speed of a point mass
- velocity - vector quantity that has direction, the rate of change of position
- acceleration - the change in a velocity vector in a corresponding change in time
