What are the two types of time graphs?
A distance-time graph and a velocity time graph,
1 of 12
What is the unit for time for both graphs?
Seconds, S
2 of 12
What is the unit for distance on a distance time graph?
Metres, M
3 of 12
What is the unit for velocity on a velocity time graph?
Metres per second, M/S
4 of 12
What does the gradient of a distance time graph show?
Represents the speed given,
5 of 12
On a distance time graph, how do you know the object is moving at a constant rate?
Straight line that slopes upward,
6 of 12
What does it mean when the line on a distance time graph is horizontal?
The object has stopped moving and is stationary,
7 of 12
What is the definition of velocity?
Speed in a given direction,
8 of 12
What is the definition of acceleration and its unit?
The change of velocity per second in Metres per second squared, M/S2
9 of 12
What does the gradient on a velocity time graph show?
Acceleration
10 of 12
What does the area under a velocity time graph show?
The distance travelled,
11 of 12
What does a horizontal line on a velocity time graph show?
That the acceleration is zero so the object is moving at a constant rate,
