# Practice on Speed, Velocity, and Acceleration

Question 1: A quantity used to measure how the velocity changes over time is called

- speed
- velocity
- energy
- acceleration
- none of the above

Question 2: A school child throws a ball downward from rest and then realized that the ball covers a distance of 1.0 m in a time of 5.0 s.
