If the object changes direction it changes velocity, even if its speed stays the same. 8 of 18 Velocity 2 If the object changes, it means it accelerating. 9 of 18 Velocity 3 Velocity is a vector because it has direction as well as a magnitude. 10 of 18 Speed 3 Speed is a scalar because it is non directional. 11 of 18 Acceleration Acceleration = change in velocity/time taken for change 12 of 18 Negative acceleration (Velocity and acceleration graphs) Means the object is decelerating. 13 of 18 Velocity time graphs Shows the velocity of an object against time taken. 14 of 18 Gradient of velocity time graphs Represents acceleration. 15 of 18 The steeper the gradient on a velocity time graphs The great the acceleration. 16 of 18 Horizontal line on a velocity time graphs The acceleration is 0, therefore the object is travelling at steady speed. 17 of 18 Area under velocity time graphs Represents the distance travelled in a given time. The bigger the area the greater the distance travelled. 18 of 18
