The rate of change of velocity. (vector quantity)
Total displacement divided by total time. (vector quantity)
Movement with no change in speed or direction.
The same as negative acceleration. "Slowing down."
The change in position of an object. "How far." (scalar quantity)
The change in position of an object in a direction. "Distance in a direction." (Vector quantity)
The speed and direction of an object at a given moment.
Total distance divided by total time. (scalar quantity)
How fast an object is moving at a given moment.
Accelerating against the direction of motion. "slowing down."
The rate of motion compared to something that is assumed to be stationary. (scalar quantity)
The rate at which an object changes postion. "How fast." (scalar quantity)
A quantity that has only magnitude (how much).
Speed in a given direction. (vector quantity)
A quantity that has both magnitude (how much) and direction.
Movement where the rate of change of position remains the same but direction CAN be changing. (scalar quantity)
