$\Delta x=x-x_{0}$

Equation for displacement

New cards

7

One-dimensional kinematics

Deals with motion along a straight line, considering only one direction.

New cards

8

Displacement

The change in position of an object. It is a vector quantity, having both magnitude and direction. Symbolized by Δx.

New cards

9

Velocity

The rate of change of displacement. It is a vector quantity, having both magnitude and direction. It is calculated as the displacement divided by the elapsed time.

New cards

10

$\overrightarrow{v}=\dfrac{\Delta \overrightarrow{x}}{\Delta t}$

11

moving in the positive direction

If average velocity is positive, the object is…

New cards

12

moving in the negative direction

If average velocity is negative, the object is…

14

$v=$ total distance/total time

Equation for average speed

New cards

15

Speed

The rate of change of distance traveled. It is a scalar quantity, having only magnitude. It is calculated by the total distance traveled divided by the time taken.

New cards

16

Acceleration

The rate of change of velocity. It is a vector quantity, having both magnitude and direction. It is calculated as the change in velocity divided by the time taken.

New cards

17

increasing with time

If average acceleration is positive, the speed is…

New cards

18

decreasing with time

If average acceleration is negative, the speed is…
