Speed can either be fast or slow and is described by the distance covered over time. What do you know about speed and how to understand its changes in a diagrammatical presentation? If you believe you understand acceleration? The quiz below is designed to help you understand what is up with acceleration? The fun quiz below is designed to help you test your understanding of the subject. Give it a shot!
When motion speeds up.
When motion slows down.
When velocity changes.
When speed changes.
True
False
Speeding Up from 30 to 60 mph.
Turning and keeping your speed constant (at 60 mph).
Slowing down from 60 to 0 mph.

Blue (Curving)
Green (straight line)
Red and Blue
None of these
Marble rolling down a ramp.
Marble rolling up a ramp.
Marble rolling on a flat ramp.
None of these ramps so deceleration.
The object is slowing down while it moves in the negative direction with positive accleration.
The object is speeding up while it moves in the positive direction with negative acceleration.
The object is slowing down while it moves in the positive direction with negative acceleration.
The object is at rest with no acceleration.

Ball thrown into the air and stops at its highest point above the ground.
A car traveling in a straight line at constant speed.
A marble rolling up a smooth ramp until it stops before rolling back down the ramp.
A car turning in a circle at a constant speed.
A = (Vi - Vf) / t
A = Vf - (Vi/t)
A = (Vf-Vi)t
A = (Vf-Vi) / t
A = Vf/t - Vi
