200

What does an upward curving line on a distance vs. time graph indicate?

positive acceleration

200

What is the equation for speed?

s=d/t

200

what is the long-form equation for acceleration?

a= (vf-vi)/(tf-ti)

On a distance vs. time graph, what units are used for the x axis?

time: seconds

300

given a speed and a distance, how do you find time?

distance divided by speed
