Kinematic Definitions Kinematics relates quantities of motion These include: Position: Where an object is located Velocity: How fast and whereto an object is moving Acceleration: How the velocity is changing Time
Position An object’s position is defined relative to a coordinate system The final position vector minus the initial position is called the displacement vector The total path traveled is called the distance
