### Learning Outcomes

Candidates should be able to:

• state what is meant by speed and velocity
• calculate average speed using distance travelled / time taken
• state what is meant by uniform acceleration and calculate the value of an acceleration using change in velocity / time taken
• interpret given examples of non-uniform acceleration
• plot and interpret a displacement-time graph and a velocity-time graph
• deduce from the shape of a displacement-time graph when a body is:
1. at rest
2. moving with uniform velocity
3. moving with non-uniform velocity
• deduce from the shape of a velocity-time graph when a body is:
1. at rest
2. moving with uniform velocity
3. moving with uniform acceleration
4. moving with non-uniform acceleration
• calculate the area under a velocity-time graph to determine the displacement travelled for motion with uniform velocity or uniform acceleration
• state that the acceleration of free fall for a body near to the Earth is constant and is approximately 10 m/s2
• describe the motion of bodies with constant weight falling with or without air resistance, including reference to terminal velocity
