### Description

A mind map of motion and related topics.

## Resource summary

Motion
1 Velocity
1.1 The direction of speed of a certain object.
2 Acceleration
2.1 Graphing
2.1.1 Distance vs. Time
2.1.1.1 A curved line demonstrates acceleration. The steepness of a curve shows the varying distances at given times.
2.1.2 Speed vs. Time
2.1.2.1 Acceleration is the slope of this line,
2.2 Calculating
2.2.1 To calculate acceleration, subtract the initial speed from the final speed and put that over the total time.
2.3 Forms of Acceleration
2.3.1 Increasing Speed
2.3.2 Decreasing Speed
2.3.3 Changing Direction
3 Reference Points
3.1 Relative Motion
3.1.1 If the reference point to an object is in motion, it makes the object itself, appear to be moving in relation to the moving object.
3.2 Used to determine if an object is moving by seeing where the object is in relation to the reference point at any given time.
4 Measuring Distance
4.1 Distance is measured in meters a majority of the time. The standard system of measurement is from the International System of Units.
5 Graphing
5.1 Slope
5.1.1 Calculating Slopes
5.1.1.1 Rise/Run
5.1.2 Different Slopes
5.1.2.1 Not all objects stay at a single constant speed. Some graphs are separated into segments to display the varying speeds. Each of these segments have different slopes. This way, you can tell how the speed of an object changes,
5.2 Distance-vs-Time
5.2.1 A point on this line would show the distance travelled at a set time,
6 Speed
6.1 Average Speed
6.1.1 To calculate the average seed of an object, divide the total distance by the total amount of time.
6.2 Speed Equation
6.2.1 By putting distance/time, you can calculate the speed of an object.
6.3 Instantaneous Speed
6.3.1 Instantaneous speed is the rate that an object is moving at a specific time.
