SG Physics Transport Idea 1?
1)Instananeous speed The police might have something to say to you if you don't watch your instantaneous speed... This is the speed taken over a very short time, so it looks as if it is the speed at and INSTANT Next idea?
2) Acceleration Acceleration is another name (at this stage) for a change in speed. So if a speed increases you have an acceleration (v-U)=positive, if you have a decrease in speed you have a deceleration (v-u)=negative. Remember a=(v-u)/t Idea tre!
3)Speed-time graphs v t The area under the graph is the total distance travelled by an object You can calculate accelerations from speed-time graphs by taking initial and final speeds from the graph and reading off the time taken for that change Example 1-

A rocket changes its speed from 100m/s to 150m/s. Calculate the acceleration. WHat is missing?
