The distance is how far you go like the perimeter,or miles/kilometers.Is the amount of space or area you travel or go. Example: You're standing in the middle of the field. Andour house is 50 metres to the north of where it is. Draw a circle with a radius of 50 meters. Any place in the circle that is located at a DISTANCE of 50 meters (magnitude= 50 meters, direction not important) If you decide to walk home, which is a DISPLACEMENT of 50 meters (Magnitude = 50 m, direction = North run in any direction and reach the circle in 50 seconds, which is a SPEED of 50 m/50s = 1 m/s you run home and reach your house in 50 seconds, that is a SPEED of 50 m / 50 s = 1 m/s North you start from a standing start. After 1 second you are running 0.75 m/s, after 2 s you are running 1.15 m/s the ACCELERATION is the change in VELOCITY divided by the time. By Deena Dugdill 12
