on most journeys, the speed of a car varies, so the acctual speed
is usually different- than the average speed
it is a SCALAR quantity
measured in m/s
velocity
velocity means the speed fof
something AND its direction of
travel
it is a VECTOR quantity
measured in m/s
acceleration
something is accelerating if its velocity is changing
average acceleration = change in velocity/ time taken
a = v-u / t
u= initial
velocity, v=
final velocity
measured in m/s^2
Free Fall
The acceleration of free fall, g
Acceleration of free fall is the same for ALL objectrs falling
nearthe earth's surface.
The acceleration of free fall is represented by the symbol g , its
value varies slightly from one place to another beausethe earths
gravitational pull varies the simple figure used for equations is 10m/s^2
