Distance - Time

"S shape" graph

gradient = speed

1. stationary

2. acceleration to a steady speed (first curve)

3. steady / uniform speed

4. decceleration (second curve)

5. stationary / stops

1 of 3

Velocity / Speed - TIme

"Hill shape"

1. stationary

2. increasing acceleration

3. uniform / constant acceleration

4. decreasing acceleration

5. steady spped (a=0)

6. increasing decceleration

7. uniform decceleration

8. decreasing decceleration

9. stationary

Velocity - Time

  • if the area is the same = comes back
  • gradient = acceleration
  • area under the graph = distance travelled
  • area 1 → away
  • area 2 → comes back
