1. Displacement and Average  Velocity Position : the location of an object Displacement : the direction and distance of the shortest path between an initial and final position: Velocity : speed and direction, unit : m/s x = x f - x i x , x i , x f
Background image of page 2
Average velocity : displacement divided by elapsed time. v ave = x 2 - x 1 t 2 - t 1 = x t
