Describing Motion

  • All motion depends on a frame of reference
  • Define distance and displacement
  • Describe motion in terms of distance, displacement, position, speed, velocity, and acceleration

Graphing Motion

  • Interpret and draw motion maps
  • Recognize constant velocity, rest, and acceleration on position-time graphs (aka distance-time)
  • Determine average velocity by using slope on a position-time graph
  • Create a velocity-time graph using a position-time graph
  • Recognize constant acceleration, rest, and constant velocity on a velocity-time graph
  • Determine average acceleration by using slope on a velocity-time graph
