### Velocity and Acceleration emphasizing graphing

Question | Answer |
---|---|

Rate of change in position (no direction) | Speed |

Rate of change in position (with direction) | Velocity |

Rate of change in velocity | Acceleration |

m/s | Velocity |

Sum of all forces on an object | Net Force |

m/s/s | Acceleration |

Newtons | Force |

meters | Distance/Displacement |

Used to represent velocity | Distance-Time Graph |

Used to represent acceleration | Velocity-Time Graph |

Represented by a horizontal line on a distance-time graph | Not moving |

Represented by a horizontal line on a velocity-time graph | Moving at a constant speed |

Represented by a straight line going up and to the right on a distance-time graph | Moving at a constant speed |

Represented by a straight line going up and to the right on a velocity-time graph | Speeding up at a constant rate |

Represented by a curve going to the right and up on a distance-time graph | Speeding up at a constant rate |

This word describes an object's resistance to change its motion | inertia |

Inertia is closely connected to this property of matter | mass |

The force of gravity pulling on an object | weight |

The amount of matter in an object | mass |

The amount of space an object occupies (takes up) | volume |

Joules | energy |

Watts | Power |

Required to change the velocity of an object | Net Force |

Law of Physics that describes inertia | Newton's First Law |

Ratio of force to mass | acceleration |

Can be calculated by squaring velocity and multiplying by mass | kinetic energy |

Ratio of change in velocity to time | acceleration |

Ratio of distance to time | velocity/speed |

Ratio of mass to volume | density |

Can be increased to increase inertia | mass |

3 ways to change velocity | speed up, slow down, change direction |

Force that goes in the opposite direction of motion when matter touches | friction |
