Mission CG1: Speed and Velocity



Mission CG1 focuses on the concepts of speed and velocity as it pertains to the motion of an object in a circle. You should be able to describe the direction of the velocity vector and the variables affecting its magnitude.  The mission consists of 32 questions organized into 8 Question Groups. You must answer one question from each Question Group to complete the mission. The learning outcomes for this mission are ...
