- The velocity of an object is its speed in a particular
When a body changes its speed and/or direction
it is said to experience acceleration.
- The gradient (slope) of a distance-time graph represents
the speed of an object.
The gradient of a velocity-time graph
represents the acceleration of an object.
The distance travelled is equal to the area
under a velocity-time graph.
