• Displacement, velocity, and acceleration 1. Nomenclature: a. r (t), v (t), a (t) for 3D b. x(t), v x (t), a x (t) for 1D 2. Which are scalars, which are vectors? a. Distance vs displacement b. Speed vs velocity c. Magnitude of acceleration vs acceleration 3. How are x(t), v x (t), and a x (t) related? a. Mathematically? b. Graphically? 4. Average vs instantaneous velocity and acceleration 5. Important that you be able to interpret graphs 6. Some examples
