What can we say if a velocity-time graph is a horizontal line?
The acceleration is zero.
1 of 5
How can we tell from a velocity-time graph if an object is accelerating or decelerating?
The gradient represents acceleration.
2 of 5
What does the area under a velocity-time graph represent?
Distance travelled.
3 of 5
If the acceleration is horizontal on a velocity-time graph was does that mean in terms of velocity of the object?
The object is travelling at a steady speed.
4 of 5
How does braking affect the velocity of an object?
Braking reduces the velocity of the object.
