Motion in 1 dimension- Part 1

Learning Objective: Understand motion, velocity and speed

Vocabulary:
displacement
velocity
average velocity
speed
scalars and vectors

How is velocity measured?

Now calculate Big Daddy Don Garlitz’ average velocity by converting 0.25miles/5.40sec into miles per hour.

(0.25miles)/(5.40sec) x (3600sec/hr) = 166 mph
Why is this different than the 270 mph recorded top speed?
