Kinematics Chapter Questions
1.When you drive a car and take a quick look on the speedometer, what do you see velocity or speed?
2.
A ball is thrown vertically up and is caught at the starting point; compare the traveled
distance and displacement of the ball.
3.Can an object with a constant acceleration reverse it direction of travel? Explain.
4.Can an object have a varying velocity when its speed is constant? Explain.
5.Is it possible for an object to have average velocity equal to its instantaneous velocity?
6.What quantity describes how quickly you change your speed?
7.Can an object have a southward velocity and a northward acceleration?
8.Is it possible for an object to have average speed equal to the magnitude of its average velocity?
9.If the speedometer of a car reads constant speed 50 mi/h, does it mean that the car has constant velocity?
10.What does the area under the curve on a velocity-versus-time graph represent?
11.What does the slope of the curve on a displacement-versus-time graph represent?
12.What does the slope of the curve on a velocity-versus-time-time graph represent?

1.A rabbit can cover a distance of 80 m in 5 s. What is the speed of the rabbit?
2.
During the first 50 s a truck traveled at constant speed of 25 m/s. Find the distance that it
traveled.
3.An elevator ascends at a constant speed of 4 m/s, how much time is required for the elevator in order to travel 120 m upwards?
