# Physics Section 3 - Kinematics In the Kinematics section of Physics we explore Physics Tutorials which guide your through the various skills and learning material within this section. We also provide online Kinematics Calculators which allow you to calculate specific Kinematics formula in support of the tutorials or to check and verify your own calculations in support of your homework, coursework or thesis.

This section is about Kinematics - the branch of physics that studies the motion of objects without analyzing the factors that cause this motion. A number of physical quantities such as position, displacement, distance, velocity, speed and acceleration are explained along with the classification of motion according to specific criteria. In addition, the differences between apparently similar quantities such as displacement and distance, speed and velocity are explained in detail. Other key areas discussed in this section include interpretation of motion graphs, equations of motion, two and three-dimensional motion, relative motion and much more.

In this Kinematics section of Physics we cover the following topics:
