Speed vs Acceleration
What is speed?
 The
rate at which someone or
something is able to move or operate.
What is acceleration?
Increase
in the rate or speed of
something.
How can I calculate speed?
Average
Speed = Distance
Time
Graph what acceleration looks like on a
distance/time graph:
Motion of a Line
Describe the motion:

Constant Speed

(Never changes speed)
Describe the motion:
 Object
is NOT
moving.
 Time
is changing,
but distance is
not.
Describe the motion:
 Object
is
ACCELERATING.
 Getting faster!
Describe the motion:
 Object
is turning
around and
its starting
location.
Average Speed Examples

seconds. What is the average speed of the
football?
 Average
Speed = Distance
Time
What is the average speed of the runner
