Large Number Names & Metric Prefixes
Most of us have heard of millions, billions, and trillions, but how many of us actually know how big a number that
is? How about one quadrillion? Scientists in various fields will often deal with very large and/or very

Calculations:
1. Calculate the average velocity for each straight-line segment in the graph of Distance Match One.
Line 1 = 0.45 m/s
Line 2 = 0 (constant velocity)
Line 3 = 0.4 m/s
Line 4 = 0 (constant velocity)
Line 5 = 0.8 m/s
2. Calculate the average v

8. Open the file Distance Match Two. Do not save your work on Distance Match One. Try to
walk in a way to match this new graph. When you have a satisfactory graph, print it.
9. Open the file Velocity Match. As before, do not save your work on the previous
