Physics in Motion

Motion in One Dimension

Start with the most basic example of physics in motion: motion in one dimension. Learn about position, velocity, and acceleration.

Position

Start with the most basic example of physics in motion: position in one dimension. Learn about how we describe the position of an object.

Distance and Displacement

How do we describe an object that has moved? Learn about distance, displacement, and the difference between the two.

Speed and Velocity

Not all distance and displacement is the same. Learn about speed, velocity, and the difference between the two.

Acceleration

The change in velocity over time is known as acceleration. Learn about average, constant, and instantaneous acceleration.
