TermDefinition
Frame of Reference point of view of motion with labeled reference points to allow measurements
Position Location or coordinates
Distance how far
Displacement The change in position with direction
Speed how fast
Velocity how fast in a given direction
Acceleration Rate of change of velocity with respect to time.
Instantaneous Speed speed at a specific moment of time
Scalar quantity quantities that are fully described by a magnitude (or numerical value) alone. (ex. Mass, distance, speed)
Vector quantity quantities that are fully described by both a magnitude and a direction. (ex. Weight, Displacement, velocity)
Constant without changing
X-t graph Graph of position and time. Slope is velocity
Motion map Diagram of position and veclocity arrows that is used to show an objects motion
V-t graph Graph of Velocity vs time. Slope is acceleration. (Area under the curve is displacement.)
[m] the unit used with distance and displacement
[m/s] the unit used with speed and velocity
[m/s^2] the unit used with acceleration
[kg] the unit used with mass
[s] the unit used with time

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
