### Speed, Velocity, Acceleration

Speed
• The distance traveled by an object in a given amount of time.
• How fast an object is traveling.
• Speed = distance ÷ time
Speed Graph- Not moving
• The graph shows an object not changing its distance, so there is no motion.

Distance

Time

Speed Graph- Constant
• The graph shows an object moving at a constant speed. (the graph is straight diagonal line)

Distance

Distance

Time

Time

Speed Graph- Not Constant
• The graph shows an object NOT moving at a constant speed.
Velocity
• An object’s speed and direction at a given instant.
• Speed + Direction

50 m/s to the East

Velocity Graphs
• The graph below graphs an object’s velocity.

What is happening to the object’s velocity?
