Definitions Kinematics: A description of motion. Position: A location in space. Coordinate system: An arbitrary, usually graphical, description of space that allows one to uniquely identify a particle’s position Displacement: The change in position, as measured in a particular coordinate system. This is directional. Velocity (average): The displacement in a given time interval divided by that time interval. This is directional. Speed (average): The total distance traveled in a given time interval, divided by that time interval. This is not directional. Acceleration (average):
