Why is it important to study the motion of objects in terms of their velocity and acceleration – Física 10º

The teacher introduces the topic with the following text:

Objects present velocity and acceleration at all times, that may vary depending on the type of object.

An animation is then shown for the following text.

Questions for comprehension are included in the text. “A car travels at a speed of 40 km per hour, how many kilometers will it travel in one hour? By identifying the relation between distance and time, it is possible to answer the previous question. However, if other variables are added, then the following questions arise: how long to its destination? what is its acceleration? There are different types of motion: uniform rectilinear motion, uniformly accelerated rectilinear motion, uniform circular motion, etc. Depending on the purpose, one or several of those types of motion can be widely studied”
