Velocity and Acceleration Video Tutorial

The Velocity and Acceleration Video Tutorial reviews the concepts of speed, velocity, and acceleration and discusses their application to the understanding of objects moving in circles or along curved paths. The vector nature of velocity and acceleration are discussed. The means of calculating these quantities is detailed. Numerous examples, illustrations, and animations assist in the explanations. The video lesson answers the following questions:

  1. What is the direction of the velocity and acceleration vectors for objects moving along circular paths?
  2. ​How do you calculate the velocity (or speed) and acceleration of an object moving in circles?
