DISTANCE-TIME GRAPHS

We can use graphs to help us describe the motion of an object. A **distance-time graph** shows us the distance an object has travelled from a starting point (along the y-axis) against the time taken (along the x-axis). The speed of an object is the distance travelled each second. The gradient of the line on a distance-time graph represents the speed. The steeper the gradient, the greater the speed. If an object is stationary, the line on a distance-time graph is horizontal. We can calculate the speed of an object using the equation:

Speed (m/s) = Distance travelled in metres / Time taken in seconds

VELOCITY…
