Summary of describing motion physics topic 4
Distance and speed are scalar quantities. Displacement, velocity and acceleration are vectors.
They have direction.
-1 distance travelled (m) -1 displacement (m)
Average speed (ms ) = time taken (s) average velocity (ms ) = time taken (s)

-2 change in velocity (ms-1)…

The 4 equations of motion:
Use them only if the acceleration is constant.




Remember to use a sign convention to indicate the direction of vector quantities. When using
these equations with projectiles, we treat the horizontal and vertical motions completely
independently.


If we can ignore air resistance, all falling objects…
