1

Motion

The change of an objects position over time

2

Reference point

A location to which you compare other locations

3

Speed

The distance something goes in a given amount of time

4

Vector

A quantity that has both size and direction

5

Velocity

Speed with a specific direction

6

List the ways to describe position

-Use distance and direction (reference point)
-Use latitude and Longitude

7

What are the ways to describe motion?

-Speed
-Frame of reference

8

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.

9

Position

The location of an object or place
