# Speed, Velocity, Acceleration - PowerPoint PPT Presentation

1 / 10

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, 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?

What is different about this graph from the others we have looked at?

Speed

Time

### Acceleration

• Change in an object’s speed or direction (its velocity) over time.

• Speeds up, slows down

• Turns around, makes a turn

### Acceleration Graph Distance vs. Time

• The graph below shows an object accelerating (curved line on distance vs. time graph)

### Acceleration GraphsVelocity (speed) vs. Time

• The graph below shows an object accelerating (diagonal line on a speed vs. time graph)
