Speed

Absolute value of velocity function. Speed does not have direction.

1

Total distance

Integration of absolute value of velocity function between the bounds.

2

Total displacement

The integration of velocity function between two bounds.

3

Speeding up.
Decreasing speed or velocity.

Both velocity and acceleration have same sign.

4

Slowing down
Decreasing speed and velocity

The velocity and acceptation have different signs.

5

Projectile functions.
Maximum Height or reaching highest point.

When velocity equal to zero or derivative of position function equal to zero.

6

Acceleration

1st derivative of velocity function
Or 2nd derivative of position function.

7

Velocity function

Derivative of position function.
Integration of acceleration function.

8

Initial position (S0)

Position when time equal to zero.

9

Initial velocity (V0)

Velocity when time equal to zero.

10

Average velocity

S(b)-S(a)
----------
b-a
Or
Integration of velocity between bounds (a,b) and divide by b-a

11

Average acceleration

V(b)-V(a)
----------
b-a
