## Summarizing questions: complete under your notes and bring to class.

1.     Explain how acceleration is different from speed and velocity.

2.    Explain how acceleration, velocity, and time are related.

3.    Consider a situation where you are playing air hockey with a friend. The table shoots small streams of air upward to keep the puck afloat and to minimize friction. When you barely tap the puck forward, what happened?

4.    When a bus comes to a sudden stop to avoid hitting a dog, it slows from 9.00 m/s to stop in 1.50 seconds. Find the acceleration of the bus.

5.    Explain how a car could accelerate if its speed is a constant 65 km/h.

6. Tommy was walking at a rate of 4 mph at noon and at 12:30 pm he was walking at a brisk rate of 6 mph. Two hours later Tommy was walking at a leisurely rate of 2mph. What was Tommy's acceleration between noon and 12:30 pm? Show Given and Work
