how quickly velocity is changing?
1 of 15
What is the difference between velocity and acceleration?
Acceleration is how quickly the velocity is changing
2 of 15
This change in velocity can be?
change in speed or change in direction or both
3 of 15
Whats the formula for acceleration?
acceleration= change in velocity divided by time taken
4 of 15
Whats the symbol version?
(v-u) divided by a times t
5 of 15
What does gradient mean in velocity time graph?
gradient=acceleration
6 of 15
Flat sections represent?
steady speed
