Terms in this set (6)
Reference Point
Definition: An object at rest used to judge the motion of another object
Example: The finish line of a race
Position (x)
Definition: The point or area occupied by an object
Example: The distance from the finish line
Unit: Meter
Motion
Definition: When an object changes position with respect to a reference point
Example: A moving car changes position with respect to the road
Speed (s)
Definition: The rate at which an object changes position
Equation: Speed= distance/ ∆time
Unit: Meters per second= m/s
Velocity (v)
Definition: Same as speed but also includes direction of motion
Equation: Velocity= ∆x/∆t
Units: m/s
Acceleration (a)
Definition: The rate at which an object changes velocity
Equation: Acceleration= ∆v/∆t= V final-V initial/ ∆time
