# ch.4: Accleration

### accelerated motion in a straight line vocabulary.

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

acceleration | the rate of change in the speed of an object. |

delta | "the change in" |

constant accleration | speed that changes by the same amount every second |

uniform accleration | another word for constant acceleration |

slope | rise: amount the speed changes / run: amount the time changes |

term | piece of an equation |

initial speed | first term of the formula is the speed the object starts with |

free fall | moving under the influence of gravity only |

acceleration due to gravity | symbol: (g)equation: 9.8m/sec2 |

time of flight | object takes the same time going up as it takes coming down |

friction | when air resists the motion of objects moving through it |

air resistance | when small objects at low speeds is neglected by air |

terminal speed | maximum speed at which an object falls when limited by air friction |

acceleration equation | accelertaion= change in speed/ chang in time= meters per second/second=meters/ second X second=m/sec2 |
