Students will learn the meaning of acceleration, how it is different than velocity and how to calculate average acceleration.
Learn about the relationship between velocity and position for a swimmer.
Learn about the relationship between position, velocity, and acceleration for two objects in one-dimensional motion.
Understand the relationship between normal force, gravity, net force, and acceleration in the context of a ride in an elevator.
Illustrates the differences between constant velocity and acceleration with an example problem.
Definition of acceleration, calculation of average acceleration given the change in time and velocity, use of g gravitational acceleration on earth and distance of an accelerating object.
A list of student-submitted discussion questions for Velocity and Acceleration.
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.
