Distance and Displacement
My Definition: A measure between two locations, measuring the connecting line.
Formulas: ∆x= Vₒt + ½a(t*t) (t squared) Displacement
- Never negative
- It will always increase
My Definition: A quantity having direction and magnitude, especially in determining the position of one point in space relative to another. Measured along the shortest path connecting them.
∆x= Vₒt + ½a(t*t) (t squared) Displacement
- It is a point of reference
- Can be negative
- Change in Position
- Involve Space
2. A rocket shoots up an altitude of 180.0 km if the initial speed is 3.00 km/s how long did it take the rocket to reach its maximum height?
3.The average speed of a runner is 518 km/h. He decreased his speed from 100% to 40% of his average speed during the interval of 2 min. What is the distance traveled during that interval?
4.A radioactive kitten runs at a speed of 2.60 m/s. By the time the kitten finds his food his speed decreases at 2.20 m/s. If it took him 9.00 min and has a constant deceleration, what is the distance traveled by the super kitten?
