8th Unit 5

Motion key Terms

displacement an object’s overall change in position; the SI unit is the meter (m)
distance a measure of how far an object has traveled; the SI unit is the meter (m)
average speed an object’s total distance traveled divided by the time elapsed. The SI unit is meters/second (m/s)
average velocity an object’s displacement divided by time elapsed. The SI unit is meters/second (m/s)
constant velocity velocity that remains unchanged
instantaneous velocity the velocity of an object at a specific point in time
scalar a quantity having only magnitude, not direction
vector a quantity having direction as well as magnitude
average acceleration the rate of change of velocity divided by time elapsed. The SI unit for acceleration is meters per second squared (m/s2).
constant acceleration acceleration that does not change.
instantaneous acceleration acceleration at a given moment in time.
kinematics the science of describing the motion of an object.
free fall an object in motion only under the influence of the force of gravity.
