This is the motion map that represents the car. We model the position of the object with a small point. At each position, the object’s velocity is represented by a vector. If the car were traveling at greater velocity, the strobe photo might look like this: If the car were traveling at greater velocity, the strobe photo might look like this: The corresponding motion map has the points spaced farther apart, and the velocity vectors are longer, implying that the car is moving faster.
