What is acceleration?
How quickly velocity is changing.
Acceleration is not the same as what 2 things?
The change in velocity can be what 2 things?
Change in speed.
Change in direction.
What is the formula for acceleration?
Change in velocity divided by time taken.
What is V?
The final velocity.
What is U?
The initial velocity.
What does (v-u) mean?
Working out the 'change in velocity'.
What is the unit for acceleration?
What is the gradient on the graph?
Flat sections represent...
The steeper the graph...
The greater the acceleration/deceleration.
The area under any section of the graph is equal to what?
Distance travelled in that time interval.
A curve means...
Workout the ....
After you work out the shaded are...
Times it by the velocity.
