Motion, speed, velocity, acceleration

Change in position relative to a reference point. motion
A stationary object used for comparison to determine if an object is in motion. reference point
SI unit of length meter
Number of centimeters in one meter 100
Number of meters in one kilometer 1000
The distance traveled in a certain amount of time speed
Total distance divided by total time average speed
Speed in a given direction velocity
Rise divided by run slope
The rate at which velocity changes acceleration
Increasing speed, decreasing speed,or changing direction acceleration
For an object moving in a straight line, the change in speed per unit of time acceleration
Both velocity and acceleration include ______________ of an object's motion direction
For zero distance, speed is zero
For zero speed, motion is zero
For zero acceleration, speed does not change
The steepness of a line on a graph slope
When an object's distance from another object is changing it it in motion
Speed equals distance divided by time
When you know both the speed and direction of an object's motion you know the velocity
If the speed of an object does NOT change the object is traveling at a constant speed
If an object moves in the same direction and at a constant speed _____ did not change. velocity
Example of deceleration is a car approaching a red light
Riding a ferris wheel is acceleration because ___________ is changing direction
SI unit of speed m/s

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
