The flashcards below were created by user carrieross on FreezingBlue Flashcards.

1. 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
2. Compare speed to velocity
(scalar vs. vector)
• Speed = D/T (scalar)
• Velocity = speed in a certain direction (vector)
3. 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)
4. List the 3 ways to cause acceleration
• 1. speed up
• 2. chenge direction
• 3. slowing down
