# What measures the change in position of an object?

a

**measure**of both length and the direction of an**object's**path from its starting point straight to its ending point. the rate at which an**object changes position**. When an**object changes position**over time, speed describes how quickly an**object changes position**.A.

### What is the change in position?

**Change of position**is a defence to a claim in unjust enrichment which operates to reduce a defendant's liability to the extent to which his or her circumstances have

**changed**as a consequence of an enrichment.

#### What is the formula for displacement?

**Displacement**equals the original velocity multiplied by time plus one half the acceleration multiplied by the square of time. Here is a sample problem and its solution showing the use of this**equation**: An object is moving with a velocity of 5.0 m/s.#### Can there be a negative displacement?

Clearly, You've moved an extra 10 m. And it will be termed as**negative displacement**. Since**displacement**is relative and a vector, it**can**be positive or**negative**.**Displacement**is a vector quantity and it**can**be**Negative**, positive or zero whereas distance is a scalar quantity and it cannot be**negative**but it**can**be zero.#### What is the formula used to calculate force?

Learning the Formula. Multiply**mass**times acceleration. The force (F) required to move an object of**mass**(m) with an acceleration (a) is given by the**formula F**= m x a.

B.

### What is the change in position of an object per unit of time?

The unit of acceleration is change of position per unit of time per unit of time, such as meters/

**second**/**second**. Acceleration can be positive or negative. Velocity is an object's change of position per unit of time. Acceleration is the rate at which velocity changes in a unit of time.#### What is the state in which an object's distance from another is changing?

A place or**object**used for comparison to determine if an**object**is in motion. The**state**in which one**object's distance from another is changing**. The**distance**an**object**travels in one unit of time.#### What is the rate of change of velocity?

We describe motion in terms of**velocity**and acceleration.**Velocity**: The**rate of change**of displacement of an object (displacement over elapsed time) is**velocity**.**Velocity**is a vector since it has both magnitude (called speed) and direction.#### What can be measured by acceleration?

Calculating**acceleration**involves dividing velocity by time — or in terms of units, dividing meters per second [m/s] by second [s]. Dividing distance by time twice is the same as dividing distance by the square of time. Thus the SI unit of**acceleration**is the meter per second squared.
