MOTION
Displacement-Time Graph
Velocity (m/s) = Displacement (m) ÷ Time (s)
Velocity (m/s) = Y-axis ÷ X-axis = Gradient
Acceleration (m/s2) = Final Velocity (m/s) ­ Initial Velocity (m/s) / Time (s)
Acceleration (m/s2) = Gradient/ X-axis
Obect is stationary
0 gradient > 0 velocity
Object moving at constant velocity,
constant positive gradient > constant positive velocity
Object moving at constant aceleration
gradient increases > velocity increases
(to find velocity at a point, diffrentiate)

MOTION
Velocity-Time Graph
Acceleration (m/s2) = Final Velocity (m/s) ­ Initial Velocity (m/s) / Time (s)
Displacement (m) = Velocity (m/s) x Time (s) (AREA UNDER THE GRAPH)
