Unformatted text preview: higher speed (magnitude) Constantly decreasing slope (convex) in position means constant SLOWING of speed (slope) Position > speed > acceleration. Scalar = Speed, Vector = Velocity o Other Scalar: Mass, quantities stuff that doesnt need direction Vectors o Addition of vectors (summing after you draw the directions) o Subtraction of vectors. o Other shit Acceleration = rate of change in velocity over time o Forces associated with acceleration. o Instantaneous acceleration calculated by taking short time interval where acceleration doesnt change much. o Direction of acceleration Deceleration vs. acceleration. o When velocity is constant, acceleration is 0.
