What is the definition of “distance.”

What is the definition of “displacement.”

If James has to get from the cafeteria to the IT

building and runs the 20m there, only to find

out class is in the media center 30m away,

what is the distance James traveled.

If I turn in the TV in the living room, walk

10m to the kitchen to get a snack, and then

walk 8m back to the living room and crash on

the couch, what is my displacement?

What is the definition of speed?

What is the formula for speed?

What is the definition of velocity?

Is the formula for speed and velocity the

same thing?

If Sarah can run 10 m in 2 seconds, what is

her speed?

If a car can drive 55 miles in 11 minutes, how

fast is the car traveling?

What is the definition of acceleration?

What is the formula for acceleration?

If Mary is at the track meet and she speeds up

from 6 m/s to 10m/s in 2s to win the race,

what was her acceleration?

What does negative acceleration mean?

What directions are negative for vector

values?

If a car is slowing down AND going west, is

the acceleration positive or negative?

What is centripetal acceleration? When do we

use it?

What is the formula for

centripetal

acceleration?

If a horse is running around a ring with a 5m

radius, and the horse is trotting at 5m/s,

what is it’s

centripetal

acceleration?

What is

freefall

?

What is the formula for

freefall

when

calculating

how fast the object was falling

?

What is the

freefall

formula to figure out

how

far the object fell?

Tom wants to play a trick on Jerry and drop a

bucket of water on his head. If the bucket of

water has to fall in one second to hit Jerry

coming through the door, how high does the

bucket have to be above the door?

A rockslide happened in California last week

and a boulder hit a Toyota. If the rock took 3

seconds to fall and hit the car, what was the

rock’s final velocity?

What are the three types of projectile

motions? (the fancy word is trajectory)

What are the two types of velocities we have

to think about for projectile motion?

What is vertical acceleration ALWAYS going to

be?

What is vertical velocity when the object is

falling?

What is vertical velocity at the object’s peak.

What is

horizonal

velocity?
