1 Both Mr Rabbit and Mr Tortoise took the same round trip, but Mr Rabbit slept & returned later.
Who runs faster? No, I travelled longer distance every minute. Me, as I spent less time on the trip. Comment on their their argument.
radius = 8 km 2 A boy has been missing in a forest for 2 hours. scale = 1 cm : 5 km O (a) If he walks at a speed of 4 km h–1, try to locate his possible positions on the map.

1 Speed How can we describe how fast an object moves? E.g. A car on Tolo Highway travels 90 km in 1 hour. We say that the car travels ata speedof 90 km h–1.
1 Speed How can we describe how fast an object moves? Speed is a measure of how fast something moves. Speed = distance travelled per unit of time SI unit: m s–1 or km h–1 (for long distances)
1 Speed a Average speed A car travels at 50 km h–1, slows down to 0 km h–1, and speeds up again to 60 km h–1. Its average speed over the whole journey overall distance travelled = total time of travel
1 Speed a Average speed Average speed does not tell the variations during the journey. On most trips, the speed at any instant is often different from the average speed.
1 Speed b Instantaneous speed = speed at any instant Instantaneous speed The word ‘speed’ alone instantaneous speed Instantaneous speed distance travelled inan extremely short time interval Simulation
1 Speed b Instantaneous speed Speedometer tells the car’s speed at any instant!
direction magnitude (speed) 2 Velocity Velocity is... a speed in a given direction or rate of change of displacement. a vector quantity velocity
2 Velocity a Speed with direction MTR drivers concern speed only. speed = 90 km h–1 Pilots concern velocity (direction & speed). speed = 300 km h–1 direction = west
2 Velocity b Average velocity overall displacement Average velocity = total time of travel direction of overall displacement direction of velocity =
2 Velocity c Instantaneous velocity The velocity atany instant is calledinstantaneous velocity. If a car moves at a constant velocity... … its average and instantaneous velocities have the same value.
( ) Average speed = 10.49 Q1 The world record... The world record of women 100-m race is 10.49 s. What is the average speed? 100 = 9.53 m s–1or 34.3 km h–1
Q2 In an orienteering event... In an orienteering event, Maria and Karen reach their control points at the same time. start, 10:00 am Maria, 10:30 am Karen, 10:30 am Who runs in a higher average velocity?
Q2 In an orienteering event... Who runs in a higher average velocity? A Maria. B Karen. C Undetermined since their paths are unknown. D Incomparable since they run alongdifferent directions.
Q3 True or false: Average speed of an object magnitude of its average velocity. (T/F) Note: The distance travelled is equal tomagnitude of displacement only if it is a straight-line motion.Speed is usually larger than the magnitude of velocity.
Q4 True or false: A man takes a walk starting from rest andending at rest. It is possible for him to attain an averagespeed of 5 km h–1 but he never goes faster than5 km h–1. (T/F)
3 Acceleration When a car moves faster and faster, its speed is increasing (velocitychanged).
3 Acceleration When a car moves slower and slower, its speed is decreasing (velocity changed).
3 Acceleration When a car changes direction, its velocity changes too.
direction speed 3 Acceleration Acceleration measures the change in velocity Acceleration = velocity per unit time overall change in velocity = total time taken vector quantity Unit: m s–1 / s = m s–2
3 Acceleration If a car accelerates at 2 m s–2, what does that mean? v = 0 t = 0 v = 2 m s–1, v = 2 m s–1 t = 1 s 1 m v = 4 m s–1, v = 2 m s–1 t = 2 s 3 m t = 3 s v = 6 m s–1, v = 2 m s–1 5 m
