AQA P2.1 (Time graphs etc)

Heres a slide show about the graphs and distance-time and velocity- time etc etc

Trouble is the higher tier is pretty hard to show on a powerpoint :P so don't use this for ALL ur revision, ain't enough there ahaha (i wish there was lool)

Good Luck **

Distance-time graphs
We use distance-time graphs to help us show the
motion of a object (body)
The Y axis shows the distance between the
object and the start
The X axis shows the time taken…read more

The slope on the graph shows the speed, the
steeper the gradient the greater the speed
We can calculate the speed of the body by using
the equation:
Speed = distance / time
The unit is m/s D

Velocity and acceleration
The velocity of a body is its speed in a given
If the body changes direction its velocity will
When the velocity changes, we say it accelerates…read more

To calculate acceleration, the equation is:
Acceleration = Change in velocity
time taken for change
The unit for this is m/s²
If the answer to the equation is negative, the
object decelerating (slowing) down…read more
