Here is your chance to apply what
you've learned in this chapter.

Distance and
displacement are different. Distance is scaler and
displacement is vector. You should know how to
calculate average velocity. You should be familiar
with position- and velocity-time graphs. Velocity can
be calculated from a position-time graph.
