Constant Velocity The position increases by 2 meters every second. The position decreases by 2 meters every second.

Example An object starts at a position of -5 meters and travels with a constant velocity of 3m/s for 5 seconds

Diagram – Motion Map Like the washers in the hallway. v v v v v v t = 2s x = 1m t = 3s x = 4m t = 4s x = 7m t = 5s x = 10m t = 0s x = -5m t = 1s x = -2m

no direction Velocity – The rate at which the position changes. +/- sign gives direction Displacement – The change in position.

v = velocity (m/s) t = time (s) x = position (m) Δx = x 2 – x 1 (m)
