  2. Articles & Guided Reading Questions
  • Acceleration– This article defines acceleration as a change in velocity and explains why acceleration is a vector quantity. The article also describes how to calculate and graph acceleration.
  • Non-Linear Motion– This article describes projectile motion and circular motion. The role of gravity and inertia in projectile motion is discussed, as well as other factors affecting the aiming of a projectile.

*Links to the above articles as well as guiding questions to accompany them are found in Google Classroom.
