Distance-time and Velocity-time graphs

  • If an object moves in a straight line, its distance travelled can be plotted on a distance time graph.
  • On these graphs, gradient = speed. The steeper the graph the faster the object is moving. 
  • Flat sections are where it's strationary.
  • Straight uphill sections are where it is travelling at a steady speed.
  • Curves represent acceleration or deceleration.
  • A steepening curve means it's speeding up.
  • A levening off curve means it is slowing down.
  • if the object is changing speed (accelerating), you…
