The position of a particle moving along the x-axis is the
x-coordinate of the particle; it may be positive or
Displacement is the final position minus the initial
position; it may be positive or negative.
Average speed = Distance/Time.
Average velocity = Displacement/ Time.
Instantaneous velocity is the rate of change of
Instantaneous acceleration is the arte of change of
If acceleration is constant, some simple relations hold
among the displacement, velocity, acceleration, and time.
