### Motion, Speed, Velocity and Acceleration Notes

1. 1. Motion Speed Velocity Acceleration
2. 2. Vocabulary <ul><li>Motion: A change in position </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Depends on reference point </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Is the mom moving relative to the dad? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Is the mom moving if you were on the side of the road? </li></ul></ul>
3. 3. Speed <ul><li>The distance an object moves in a certain amount of time </li></ul><ul><li>Formula: </li></ul>
4. 4. Unit for Speed <ul><li>Since the formula is </li></ul><ul><li>Then the unit for speed must be a unit of distance divided by a unit of time. </li></ul><ul><li>For example: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>km/h </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>m/s </li></ul></ul>
5. 5. Speed <ul><li>Look familiar? </li></ul><ul><li>Knowing any of the 2 variables, you can solve for the 3 rd . </li></ul>
6. 6.

7. 7. Velocity <ul><li>How far an object moves in a given amount of time AND the direction </li></ul><ul><li>+ </li></ul><ul><li>What was your velocity to the concert? </li></ul>
8. 8. Acceleration <ul><li>A change in speed OR direction </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Speeding up </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Slowing down </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Changing direction </li></ul></ul></ul>
