Speed, Velocity and Acceleration

HideShow resource information
Acceleration
The rate of change in speed (or velocity) is measured in metres per second squared. Acceleration= change of velocity ÷ time taken
1 of 8
Deceleration
Slowing down or negative acceleration, eg the car slowed down with a deceleration of 2ms-2
2 of 8
Displacement
Quantity describing the distance from the start of the journey to the end in a straight line with a described direction, eg a hiker ended up at the hostel 50km due north of his original position
3 of 8
Force
A push or pull. The unit of force is the Newton (N)
4 of 8
Magnitude
The magnitude tells us the size of the vector
5 of 8
Momentum
A quantity relating to a moving object that is calculated by multiplying its mass by its velocity
6 of 8
Stationary
Not moving
7 of 8
Velocity
The speed of an object in a particular direction
