# Lesson Worksheet: Relative Speed Science

In this worksheet, we will practice determining the speeds of objects relative to other objects.

Q1:

An orange object moves across a grid of lines spaced 1 meter apart. The object moves for 2 seconds. The arrows show the distance that the object moves in each second. What is the speed of the object relative to the grid lines that it crosses? Q2:

A blue object and an orange object move across a grid of lines spaced 1 meter apart. Each object moves for 2 seconds. The arrows show the distances that the objects move in each second. What is the speed of either object relative to the grid lines that it crosses? Q3:

A blue object and an orange object move across a grid of lines spaced 1 meter apart. Each object moves for 2 seconds. The arrows show the distances that the objects move in each second. By how much does the distance between the objects increase each second? Q4:

A blue object and an orange object move across a grid of lines spaced 1 meter apart. The arrows show the distances that the objects move in each second. What is the speed of either object relative to the other? Q5:

A blue object moves across a grid of lines spaced 1 meter apart. The object moves for 2 seconds. The arrows show the distance that the object moves in each second. What is the speed of the object relative to the grid lines that it crosses? Q6:

A blue object and an orange object move across a grid of lines spaced 1 meter apart. Each object moves for 2 seconds. The arrows show the distances that the objects move in each second. By how much does the distance between the objects change each second? Q7:

A blue object and an orange object move across a grid of lines spaced 1 meter apart. Each object moves for 2 seconds. The arrows show the distances that the objects move in each second. What is the speed of either object relative to the other? Q8:

A blue object and an orange object move across a grid of lines spaced 1 meter apart. Each object moves for 2 seconds. The arrows show the distances that the objects move in each second. What is the relative speed at which the objects move away from each other? Q9:

A blue object and an orange object move across a grid of lines spaced 1 meter apart. Each object moves for 2 seconds. The arrows show the distances that the objects move in each second. What is the relative speed at which the objects approach each other? Q10:

A person is sitting on a merry-go-round, looking at a person standing next to it. Which of the following diagrams correctly shows the direction that the person on the merry-go-round sees the standing person moving in relative to them? • A • B This lesson includes 16 additional questions for subscribers.
