Flashcards in Physics Test 1 Review Deck (9)
The change of an objects position over time
A location to which you compare other locations
The distance something goes in a given amount of time
A quantity that has both size and direction
Speed with a specific direction
List the ways to describe position
-Use distance and direction (reference point)
-Use latitude and Longitude
What are the ways to describe motion?
-Frame of reference
How can you interpret a distance-time graph? What does the slope of the line tell you about the objects motion?
-time is on the x axis
-distance is on the y axis
-speed is represented by the slope of the line. The slope can tell you how fast/slow the speed is based on how steep the slope is.
