motion a race starting

from rest and

Part 1. Definitions reaches a top

The following shows a list of terms we use to describe motion and speed of 10

their definitions. Read them carefully and then answer the questions m/s

that follow. A race car

• position - the location of an object travels along

• instantaneous speed - how fast an object is moving at a particular a straight

instant in time section of a

• instantaneous velocity - how fast an object is moving at a particular race track at a

instant in time and the direction of the object's motion constant 90

• acceleration - a change in velocity m/s

Critical Thinking Questions travels around

1. What is the difference between a speed and a velocity? a curve at a

constant 13

2. For each of the following quantities, state whether this is a m/s

description of a position, a speed, a velocity, or an acceleration.

a. a truck cruises down the highway at 100 km/h 4. Study the third column of the chart in question #3. There are two

b. a truck cruises down the highway at 100 km/h toward the things that can be changing during an object's motion for it to be

east accelerating. What are they?

c. a truck increases its speed from 20 m/s to 40 m/s

d. a truck is 300 km east of Culver, Indiana Part 2. Definitions

e. a truck slams on its brakes and slows down at a rate of 5 Now we'll look at how to calculate the average values (as opposed to

m/s each second instantaneous values) of an object's speed and acceleration. Read

each definition carefully, look at the example calculation, and answer

the questions that follow.

3. The chart below shows several descriptions of motion. Answer the • average speed - the distance an object travels divided by the time

question in the chart for each one. the object takes to travel that distance. The unit of measurement is a

distance unit divided by a time unit. The average speed can be

thought of as the average of all the instantaneous speeds during the changes at a constant rate, then the average acceleration is equal to
