## Resource summary

Kinematics
1 Basics
1.1 Acceleration = V-U/t
1.2 Speed
1.2.1 average speed = distance/time
1.2.1.1 The total distance covered over a certain time interval
1.2.2 Instantaneous
1.2.2.1 The speed of an object at a particular instant
1.3 Displacement
1.3.1 Displacement is the shortest distance from the initial point to the final point; Thus, it is the length of an imaginary straight path
1.4 Velocity
1.4.1 The speed of an object in a particular direction
1.4.2 Accleration
1.4.2.1 The rate at which an objects velocity changes
2 Graphs
2.1 Displacement-time
2.1.1 Gradient = Velocity
2.1.2 Curved = Acceleration
2.1.2.1 Tangent = Instantaneous velocity
2.2 Velocity-time
2.2.1 Gradient = acceleration
