1. _____ An object that moves in the positive direction has a _____velocity.
 
2. _____ If the object is speeding up, then its acceleration is directed in the same
               direction as its motion. This means that the object has   ______.
 
3. _____ The “dot trail” shows that each consecutive dot is not the same distance
                apart. Therefore the _________ is changing.
 
4 _____ The position-time graph shows that the slope is changing meaning that
 the ______ is   changing.
 
5. _____ The velocity-time graph is located in the positive region of the graph
         indicating a  _____________.
 
6. _____ The v-t line has a positive slope meaning that there is a _________
         acceleration.
 
7. _____ The acceleration-time graph shows a horizontal line in the_____ region
  of  the graph.
