The positive direction of an axis is in the direction of increasing numbers. The opposite is the negative direction. • Displacement: x(t) The change from position x1 to position x2 is called the displacement, Δx. Δx = x2 –x1 The displacement has both a magnitude, |Δx|, and a direction (positive or negative). time t • Graphical Technique: A convenient way to describe the motion of an object is to plot the position x as a function of time t (i.e. x(t)).

Field 8/27/2013 University of Florida PHY 2053 Page 5 1-d Motion: Average Velocity • Average Velocity v = vave The average velocity is defined to be the displacement, Δx, that occurred during a particular interval of time, Δt (i.e. vave = Δx/Δt). Δx x(t 2 ) − x(t1 ) x2 − x1 = = = t 2 − t1 t 2 − t1 Δt • Average Speed The average speed is defined to be the magnitude of total distance covered during a particular interval of time, Δt (i.e. save = (total distance)/Δt).
