Explain the distinction between scalar and vector quantities . Distinguish between speed and velocity and define acceleration . Calculate values using equations for velocity and acceleration . Learning Objectives at the beginning of each Movement is fundamental to the functioning of our universe Whether you are running to catch a. bus or want to calculate the speed required for a rocket to travel to Mars or the kinetic energy of an. section chapter highlight what students need to electron in an X ray machine you need to be able to work out how fast things are moving . know and understand and refer to the specification RATE OF MOVEMENT. One of the simplest things we can measure is how fast an object is moving You can calculate an. requirements object s speed if you know the amount of time taken to move a certain distance . distance m , speed m s 1 , time s , d, v , t, However the calculation for speed will only tell you how fast an object is moving Often it is also. Learning tips help learners to focus their learning. vitally important to know in what direction this movement is taking the object When you include. the direction in the information about the rate of movement of an object this is then known as the. velocity So the velocity is the rate of change of displacement where the distance in a particular. and avoid common errors Exam hints draw learners direction is called the displacement . , fig A These runners are accelerating displacement m . attention to potential pitfalls in the exam and give. to a high speed velocity m s 1 , time s , s, v , t. practical hints about preparing for the exams LEARNING TIP. The upper case symbol for the, OR, Dss, v , Dt, answering questions in the correct format and Greek letter delta D is used. mathematically to mean a, N, 300 m, checking work . change in a quantity For, example Ds means the change. in the displacement of an, object to be used here to 75 m. calculate its velocity , DID YOU KNOW , The froghopper a 6 mm long. insect can accelerate at fig B The displacement due north is only 75 m whilst the actual distance this athlete has run is 300 m . So the velocity due north is much less than the actual speed . 4 000 m s 1, SCALARS AND VECTORS, A quantity for which the direction must be stated is known as a vector If direction is not important . the measurement is referred to as a scalar quantity Therefore velocity is a vector and speed is a.
