  • acceleration
    • acceleration is the rate of change of velocity
      • acceleration is how quickly the velocity is changing
      • this change in velocity can be a change in speed or a change in direction or both
    • the equation
      • to calculate the change in velocity, you must always do final velocity - initial velocity
      • acceleration is like velocity - its a vector
        • and so can have a positive or a negative value
      • if an object has a negative acceleration, it is either slowing down, or speeding up in a negative direction
    • calculating distance or velocity for uniform acceleration
      • uniform acceleration = the acceleration is constant
