**Velocity and Acceleration: SPS8a: Calculate velocity and acceleration.**

Illustrate the difference between speed and velocity

Take a minute and draw a representation of speed and velocity, if you need examples turn to pages 39 and 44 in your book.

Velocity Formula

Velocity= displacement/time

Lets work a few examples

Acceleration

The rate of change of velocity.

Acceleration= final velocity -initial velocity / time

Speed and Velocity

Speed is the distance an object travels over a unit of time.

example: mph (Miles per hour)

Velocity is the speed of an object and the direction of the object's motion.
