Small parts are involved, keep them from small children or animals.2. Don't leave materials scattered on the floor, trip hazard.Procedure:Describing the motion of an object often refers to the object’s speed or velocity.Speed is the rate of change of the object’sdistance travelled compared to the time required to cover that distance.Velocity is similar to speed, but adds the directionof travel.An example of speed is 6.5 m/s while velocity would be 6.5 m/s east.Distance is found by taking the difference inan object’s positions.To find the distance the object’s final position minus the object’s initial position gives the distancetravelled along with its direction.If the object changes its speed then it has acceleration.The object’s speed increases if itundergoes acceleration in the same direction of travel of the object.
