Students will learn the meaning of speed, velocity and average velocity.
Defines average velocity and discusses the formulas for and the differences between speed (a scalar quantity) and velocity (a vector quantity).
Learn about the relationship between position, velocity, and acceleration for two objects in one-dimensional motion.
Learn about the relationship between velocity and position for a swimmer.
Experiment with changing velocity to help Tommy escape the dungeon.
Watch this for an example problem that shows us calculating average velocity can be deceptively complex.
Problems require the use of the average velocity equation, converting units, and position-time graphing. One challenge problem included.
Reviews the difference between speed and velocity and how to calculate average velocity.
A list of student-submitted discussion questions for Average Velocity.
Discover how history was made by performing the bullet drop experiment for the first time ever.
A review of the terms distance, displacement, velocity, speed, and acceleration. Also looks at graphs of motion, using the kinematic equations, projectile motion, and free fall.
