Speed and Distance

Distance = Speed x Time

Average Speed =

Distance = Average Speed x Time = xt

Distance-time graphs: Gradient = speed
^ flat sections = stopped
^ negative gradient = changed direction ­ going back home e.g.
^ curves = acceleration/de
Speed = gradient = vertical/horizontal

Kinetic Energy gained = Gravitational Potential Energy lost
½ x m x v2 = mgh
h = v / 2g

Power = measure of how quickly work is being done

powerful machine = transfers a lot of energy in a short space of time NOT strong force

Power =…
