The tutorial starts with an introduction to The Meaning of Acceleration. Constant and Non-Constant Acceleration. Gravitational Acceleration and is then followed with a list of the separate lessons, the tutorial is designed to be read in order but you can skip to a specific lesson or return to recover a specific physics lesson as required to build your physics knowledge of The Meaning of Acceleration. Constant and Non-Constant Acceleration. Gravitational Acceleration. you can access all the lessons from this tutorial below.

In this Physics tutorial, you will learn:

  • What are motion maps and what are they used for?
  • What is acceleration and how can we calculate it?
  • What is deceleration and how it relates to the acceleration?
  • What is constant and non-constant acceleration?
  • What is the average and instantaneous acceleration and when should we use them?
  • What is gravitational acceleration and what is its value near the Earth surface?

Introduction

What do you do if you realize you are late for a meeting? Do you still walk or drive at the same speed as before?

Are you able to keep running at the same speed during a long race? What happens to your speed towards the end of the race? Why?

In this tutorial we will discuss these scenarios and the quantities (both old and new) involved in them.
