Solution

## (a) Displacement is a vector quantity, whereas distance is a scalar quantity. (b) The physical quantity that includes both the speed and direction of the motion of a body is called its velocity. (c) A motorcycle has a steady acceleration of 3 m/s2. This means that each second its velocity increases by 3 m/s. (d) Velocity is the rate of change of displacement. It is measured in m/s. (e) Acceleration is the rate of change of velocity. It is measured in m/s2.
