  • Velocity - Time Graphs
    • Gradient = Acceleration - Velocity change / time change
      • m/s2
    • Flat sections = steady speed
    • Steeper the graph, the greater the acceleration or deceleration
    • Uphill sections ( / ) = acceleration
    • Downhill sections ( \ ) = decelaration
    • The areas under any section of the graph (or all of it) is equal to the distance travelled in that time interval
    • A curve means changing acceleration
