2.1 Basic Kinematics Quantities

This section covers the following syllabus (Physics 5059) requirements.

  • state what is meant by speed and velocity

  • calculate average speed using distance travelled / time taken

  • state what is meant by uniform acceleration and calculate the value of an acceleration using change in velocity / time taken

  • interpret given examples of non-uniform acceleration

State what is meant by speed and velocity. Calculate average speed using distance travelled / time taken. State what is meant by uniform acceleration and calculate the value of an acceleration using change in velocity / time taken. Interpret given e…
