1

Define Acceleration

How quickly VELOCITY is changing

2

This change in velocity can be a change in...

Speed or Direction or Both

3

What is the formula for Acceleration?

Acceleration = Change in Velocity / Time taken

4

What is the unit for Acceleration?

m/s²

5

What does the GRADIENT mean on a Velocity - Time Graph?

Acceleration

6

Flat sections on V - T graphs?

Steady speed

7

Uphill sections (/) on V - T graphs?

Acceleration

8

Downhill sections (\) on V - T graphs?

Deceleration

9

The steeper the graph...

... the GREATER the Acceleration or Deceleration

10
