1
Acceleration & Speed How fast does it go?

2
Definition of Motion Event that involves a change in the position or location of something.

3
Speed Comparison of time and distance –Distance traveled per unit time

4
Average Speed Speed over a period of time

5
Speed Instantaneous Speed Speed at any instant

6
Speed Constant Speed Speed that does not change –Instantaneous speed that does not change

7
Velocity Speed AND direction

8
Acceleration A change in velocity –Speeding up Positive acceleration –Slowing down Negative acceleration Deceleration –Changing direction

9
Calculating Speed Given Distance & Time Divide Distance by Time Distance ÷ Time = Speed Speed = Distance ÷ Time D ST Speed = Distance Time

10
Let’s Practice Solve for Speed A runner completes a 400m race in 43.9s. What was his speed? Speed = Distance Time Speed = 400m 43.9s Speed =9.1m/s 2

11
Let’s Practice Solve for Speed A runner runs a 100m race in 10s. What is his speed? Speed = Distance Time Speed = 100m 10s Speed = 10m/s 2

12
Calculating Distance Given Speed & Time Multiply Speed and Time Distance = Speed X Time Speed X Time = Distance D ST Distance =Speed Time

13
Calculating Time Given Distance and Speed Divide Distance by Time Distance ÷ Speed = Time Time = Distance ÷ Speed D ST Time = Distance Speed

14
Calculating Acceleration Acceleration Equation Acceleration = (final speed (in m/s) – initial speed (in m/s)) Time (in seconds) A= (s f -s i ) t
