Unit 2

HideShow resource information
If something has velocity, it has both…
speed and direction
1 of 21
Speed and velocity are both measured in…
m/s (or km/h or mph)
2 of 21
What is speed?
how fast you're going (e.g. 30mph or 30 m/s) no regard to direction
3 of 21
What is velocity?
How fast you're going with the direction specified (e.g. 30 mph north)
4 of 21
What does the gradient of a distance time graph tell you?
How fast your object is travelling. The gradient is the change in distance (vertical axis) divided by change in time (horizontal axis)
5 of 21
Gradient = …
speed
6 of 21
What are the flat sections?
Where it is stationary
7 of 21
Straight uphill or downhill means…
it's travelling at a steady speed
8 of 21
The steeper the graph the…
faster it is going
9 of 21
Downhill section means…
It's going back towards it's starting point
10 of 21
Curves represent…
Acceleration or deceleration
11 of 21
A steeping curve means…
Its speeding up (increasing gradient)
12 of 21
A levelling of curve means…
It's slowing down ( decreasing gradient)
13 of 21
How do you work out the speed from a distance-time graph?
Vertical (divided by) horizontal
14 of 21
What is acceleration?
How quickly the velocity is changing
15 of 21
Change in velocity in acceleration can be…
Change in speed or change in direction or both
16 of 21
Acceleration formula
Change in velocity (divided by) time taken
17 of 21
Acceleration triangle
(v-u)/ a x t v= final velocity u= Initial velocity
18 of 21
Unit for acceleration…
m/s (small 2)
19 of 21
In a velocity time graph, the gradient equals…
acceleration
20 of 21
Flat sections represent…
steady speed
