The goals for this packet are as follows:
The student should understand why displacement and velocity are different from distance and speed.
How displacement, velocity, and time are related.
Solve problems involving displacement, velocity, and time.
I introduce/review displacement concepts for students interesting in learing how distance/displacement and speed/velocity differ from on another. This packet focuses on average speed and velocity as well.
In this packet we will take a closer look at displacement and velocity and what they mean in introductory physics.
