Distance=Speed x Time

d=v x t

Speed is just how fast you're going with no regard to the direction.

Velocity is speed in a particular direction.

Displacement is distance in a particular direction.

Acceleration and Deceleration

Acceleration is How Quickly Velocity is Changing. This change in velocity can be change in Speed or change in Direction

Acceleration= Change in Velocity  = Final Velocity- Initial Velocity

                               Time Taken                       Time Taken

Velocity is measured in m/s

Acceleration is measured in m/s2

Deceleration means slowing down.
