5 of 30
What is distance, scalar or vector?
Scalar
6 of 30
What is displacement, scalar or vector?
Vector
7 of 30
What is distance?
How far an object has moved
8 of 30
What does displacement do?
It measures the distance and direction in a straight line from an object's starting point to its finishing point
9 of 30
If you walk 5m north and then 5m south, what is the distance and displacement?
The distance is 10m and the displacement is 0m
10 of 30
What is speed, scalar or vector?
Scalar
11 of 30
What is velocity, scalar or vector?
A vector
12 of 30
What do speed and velocity measure?
How fast you're going
13 of 30
What is speed?
How fast you are going without any regard to direction
14 of 30
Give an example
Something along the lines of: 30mph or 20m/s
15 of 30
What is velocity?
It is speed in a given direction
16 of 30
Give an example
Something along the lines of: 30mph north or 20m/s, 060degrees
17 of 30
Due to the difference, what does this mean you can have at constant speed?
You can have objects travelling at a constant speed with a changing velocity
18 of 30
When would this happen?
When the object is changing direction whilst staying at the same speed
19 of 30
What is the equation for distance, speed and time?
speed= distance/time
20 of 30
What rarely happens?
Objects travelling at a constant speed
21 of 30
This means what normally?
That your speed is always changing
22 of 30
What is the typical speed for walking?
1.4 m/s (5km/h)
23 of 30
What is the typical speed for running?
3 m/s (11km/h)
24 of 30
What is the typical speed for cycling?
5.5 m/s (20km/h)
25 of 30
What is the typical speed for cars in a built-up area?
13 m/s (47km/h)
26 of 30
What is the typical speed for cars on a motorway?
31 m/s (112km/h)
27 of 30
What is the typical speed for trains?
Up to 55 m/s (200 km/h)
28 of 30
What is the typical speed for wind speed?
5-20 m/s
