# Physics - Kinematics

### Kinematics definitions, equations, lab info, and calculations.

Term | Definition |
---|---|

Vector | Have magnitude and direction; velocity, acceleration, force, displacement |

Scalar | Have magnitude; speed, time, distance, area, temperature, volume, mass, voltage, density, pressure, wavelength |

Distance eq(x2) | d=1/2(a)(t^2)+vi(t) d=(vf^2-vi^2)/(2a) |

Acceleration eq | a=(vf-vi)/(t) |

Kinematics def | The study of straight line moticon |

Extrapolation def | extending the graph beyond it's data points |

Interpolation def | reading values between the graph's data points |

Motion def | a change in position |

Speed def | how fast you change position |

Velocity def | how fast you change your position in a certain direction |

Instaneous Speed def | final speed at endpoint |

Acceleration | how fast you change your velocity |

Average velocity eq | v= (vi+vf)/2 |

Acceleration eq | a=(vf-vi)/t |

Velocity eq | v=d/t |

Three ways to Accelerate | Faster; Slower; Change direction |

G= ? | g= 9.8 m/s/s |
