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.
