Unformatted text preview: Negative Direction: the direction to the left of the origin. Displacement: The change from one position to the other. Delta x = x2 x1. Magnitude: is the absolute value of the displacement. Its the distance traveled. Average Velocity: is the displacement that occurs over a particular time interval. Vavg = delta x/ delta t = x2x1/t2t1. On a graph its the straight line slope, somewhat like a best fit line. Average Speed: The total distance traveled divided by the change in time. Total distance referring to the number of meters covered regardless of direction....
