Video: Dot Diagrams, Velocity, and Acceleration

Dot diagrams provide all sorts of information about how an object is moving. But how can you use the pattern of dots to reason towards conclusions about speeding up, slowing down, and constant speed motions? And how can you use the diagrams to determine the direction of velocity and acceleration? In this video from The Physics Classroom's Concept Builder series, Mr. H explains dot diagrams and the connection to the direction of the velocity and acceleration vectors. Get the answers you need in 2.5 short!
