# Applied Science AQA/Kinematics

## KinematicsEdit

### Setting Applied contextEdit

A brief paragraph about where this science is used

Syllabus Content | What you need to do |
---|---|

• the motion of objects | Describe motion in terms of displacement, speed, velocity and acceleration.
Know the difference between: - distance and displacement - speed and velocity |

• the formulas :
(average) v = s/t v = u + at v s = ut + ½ at |
Use these suvat equations to calculate any of the five quantities.
Recognise 'hidden' information, such as a=9.81 ms |

• representing motion through the use of graphs of displacement against time and velocity against time | Use these graphs to describe motion.
Calculate the gradient of a displacement-time graph as speed. Calculate the gradient of a velocity-time graph as acceleration. Calculate the area under a velocity-time graph as distance traveled. (Gradients may require the calculation of the tangent to a curve at a point.) |
