Distance Time Graphs:

  • The gradient= speed
  • Flat sections are where it has stopped
  • The steeper the graph, the faster it is going
  • Downhill sections mean its going back toward its starting point
  • Curves represent acceleration and decelleration
  • A steepening curve means its speeding up (increasing gradient)
  • A levelling off curve means its slowing down

Calculating speed from a distance time graph- its just the gradient
