Average Speed, Velocity, Acceleration

average speed and average velocity
Average Speed and Average Velocity
  • Average speed describes how fast a particle is moving. It is calculated by:
  • Average velocity describes how fast the displacement is changing with respect to time:

always positive

sign gives direction

average acceleration
Average Acceleration
  • Average acceleration describes how fast the velocity is changing with respect to time. The equation is:

sign determines direction

slide4
Sample problem: A motorist drives north at 20 m/s for 20 km and then continues north at 30 m/s for another 20 km. What is his average velocity?

24 m/s

slide5
Sample problem: It takes the motorist one minute to change his speed from 20 m/s to 30 m/s. What is his average acceleration?

0.167 m/s2
