Flashcards in Acceleration and Velocity-Time Graphs Deck (16):

1

## What is acceleration?

### How quickly velocity is changing.

2

## Acceleration is not the same as what 2 things?

###
Velocity.

Speed.

3

## The change in velocity can be what 2 things?

###
Change in speed.

Change in direction.

4

## What is the formula for acceleration?

###
Change in velocity divided by time taken.

Equals acceleration.

5

## What is V?

### The final velocity.

6

## What is U?

### The initial velocity.

7

## What does (v-u) mean?

### Working out the 'change in velocity'.

8

## What is the unit for acceleration?

### m/s2.

9

## What is the gradient on the graph?

### Acceleration.

10

## Flat sections represent...

### Steady speed.

11

## The steeper the graph...

### The greater the acceleration/deceleration.

12

## The area under any section of the graph is equal to what?

### Distance travelled in that time interval.

13

## A curve means...

### Changing acceleration.

14

## Workout the ....

### Shaded area.

15

## After you work out the shaded are...

### Times it by the velocity.
