# Speed, Distance, Time, Velocity, and Acceleration Quiz Review SPEED, DISTANCE, TIME, VELOCITY, AND ACCELERATION QUIZ REVIEW

MOTION QUIZ REVIEW Speed

Distance an object moves in a certain amount of time d=s x t d=40 meters

s=d/t s= 60 m/s t=d/s t= 25 seconds

Velocity A speed in a direction Acceleration = ending speed starting speed time

QUESTION #1 Write down the equations for: Speed Distance

Speed=Distance/Time Distance=Speed x Time Time= Distance/speed QUESTION 2

Define: Motion ANSWER Motion- A change in position, over time,

relative to a reference point. QUESTION 3 Define: Speed

ANSWER The distance an object moves in an amount of time.

Speed in a Direction QUESTION 5 Define: Acceleration

ANSWER Acceleration: Change in Velocity/ Speed over time.
