• 1 Speed and Velocity What is speed, velocity and acceleration? Speed and Velocity (Use with Speed, Velocity and Acceleration handout)
• Slide 3
• 2 Speed (s) = distance (d) time (t) Speed is the distance traveled per unit of time. Each variable measured by units: Distance : meters (m), miles (mi) Time : seconds (s), hours (hr), minutes (min) Speed: meters per second (m/s), miles per hour (mi/hr), kilometers per hour (km/hr)
• Slide 4
• 3 Pretend you are looking at your car's speedometer while you are driving. The reading you get from your speedometer is This is the speed that you are traveling at that moment. A. instantaneous speed 3 TYPES OF SPEED Instantaneous, Average, Constant
• Slide 5
• 4 C. Average speed is the total distance traveled divided by the total time. It can be calculated using the following formula: speed = distance time...or shortened: Average Speed is: Total distance = all distance traveled over Total time = final time (end) minus initial time (beginning ) B. Constant Speed is when the object covers equal distances in equal amounts of time.

• Slide 20
• 19 Instantaneous speed (Reading on your speedometer) and Average speed (Total distance traveled over total time) Both do not involve direction.
• Slide 21
• 20 What is the difference between speed and velocity? 55 mi/hr All of these cars had different velocities because they were traveling in different directions. Velocity has speed & direction.

• 21A distance/time graph makes it possible to see speed. This graph shows how fast the swimmers went during their workout. Which swimmer swam at a constant (the same) speed throughout her workout? Which one stopped during his/her workout? Constant speed Stopped here 400 meters at 10, 15, & 20 minutes Is a straight line A distance/time graph makes it possible to see speed. This graph shows how fast the swimmers went during their workout.

• Slide 24
• 23 Acceleration
• Slide 25
• 24 This brings up an important point. In common language, when things speed up, we say that they are "accelerating," and, when they slow down, we say that they are "decelerating." Any time an object's velocity is changing, we say that the object is accelerating. Acceleration is defined as the change in velocity over time.
• Slide 26
• 25 However, in the language of physics, we say that both objects are accelerating, not because both objects are speeding up, but because both objects have changing velocities. POSITIVE ACCELERATION (SPEEDING UP) * NEGATIVE ACCELERATION (DECELERATING) SLOW DOWN
• Slide 27
• 26 Acceleration is defined as the change in velocity over time. (change) in velocity time acceleration = final velocity initial velocity time acceleration = V f - V i t a =

• 32 Do the problems 8-9 on your notes.
• Slide 34
• 33 Velocity involves both speed and direction. Changing velocity does not have to necessarily involve a change in speed. It could just involve a change in direction. 70 mi/h
• Slide 35
• 34 Constant Speed of 55 mph 1. Consider a car moving at a constant speed of 55 mph while turning in a circle. 2. The car's velocity is not constant, even though the speed is constant. 3. WHY? This is because the direction of motion is constantly changing while the car is turning around the track. 4. Since the direction is changing, even though the speed is not, the velocity is changing (velocity involves both speed and direction). Think Differently About Acceleration
• Slide 36
• 35 Constant Speed of 55 mph 6. As a result, the car is accelerating, even though it is neither speeding up nor slowing down. 5. The car is accelerating because its velocity is changing. Think Differently About Acceleration
