### Universally accelerated particle model

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

Acceleration | Basic: Change in motion Advance: Change in velocity with respect to time |

deceleration | slow down |

instantaneous velocity | velocity at a specific moment of time |

[m/s2] | meters per second (squared) - units of acceleration |

Equation for acceleration | a = (Vf-Vi)/t |

Equation for velocity | v = x/t |

Slope of x-t graph | Velocity |

Slope of v-t graph | acceleration |

Scalar | quantity like mass, distance, speed, |

vector | quantity like displacement, velocity, acceleration, force |

acceleration due to gravity | 9.8 m/s2..... for quick math use 10 m/s2 |

free fall | ignoring air resistance when falling due to gravity |
