Storyboard Text

  • Speed is the same as velocity only when the direction of motion is a straight line.
  • Acceleration is also a vector quantity, requiring both a magnitude and a direction. Acceleration is often called 'speeding up,' though it would more accurately be referred to as 'velocitying up.
  • Much to the chagrin of physics teachers everywhere, most real-world examples of acceleration do not occur at a constant rate.
  • velocity is a different story since it measures displacement over time, as opposed to distance. 
  • Speed is a measure of distance traveled over a certain amount of time. In the Daytona 500, cars travel a distance of 500 miles in approximately 3.1 hours.
  • This also illustrates real-world considerations vs. physics considerations. No racer would purposely start at the back of the pack just to end up with a higher velocity.
