Compare average speed to instantaneous speed
Average Speed is the total distance travelled divided by the total time to travel the distance.
Instantaneous Speed is speed of an object at a certain point of time or at one instant of time
Compare speed to velocity
(scalar vs. vector)
- Speed = D/T (scalar)
- Velocity = speed in a certain direction (vector)
Compare Distance to Displacement
(scalar vs vector)
Distance = total length covered from beginning to end (scalar)
Displacement = length from the starting point to the ending point in a straight line and direction (vector)
List the 3 ways to cause acceleration
- 1. speed up
- 2. chenge direction
- 3. slowing down
