Scalar and Vector Quantities
Speed is distance per unit time (scalar)
Displacement is the distance moved in a stated direction
Instantaneous speed is the speed at a given instant- it is the
gradient of the graph of displacement against time at that
Average speed = Distance / Time
Acceleration is the rate of change of velocity
Average acceleration = increase in velocity/ time…read more
