What is the equation for speed?

Distance Travelled (m) / Time Taken (s)

Time Taken (s) / Distance Travelled (m)

Velocity is similar to speed but it has a vector quantity.

A car is travelling in a straight line. After a mile it turns a corner. What changed?

The velocity

The speed

Nothing

What is the equation for acceleration?

Time Taken for the Change (s) / Change in Velocity (m/s)

Change in Velocity (m/s) / Time Taken for the Change (s)

If the change in velocity is measured in m/s and the time is measured in seconds, then acceleration is measured in...

2m/s

m/s^2

Choose the word that does not fit the statement. If a car is slowing down it has a...

Deceleration

Negative velocity

Negative Acceleration

The acceleration is shown by the gradient (slope) of the velocity-time graph.

The distance travelled is shown by the area above the velocity-time graph.

Speed is shown on the x axis of a distance-time graph.

Displacement is...

Similar to distance but has a vector quantity (size and direction).

Similar to distance but has a volume.
