How do we use graphs?
To help us describe the motion of an object
1 of 9
What is on the y-axis?
Distance of an object from the starting point.
2 of 9
What is the x-axis?
The time taken.
3 of 9
What is the speed of an object?
The distance travelled each second.
4 of 9
What does the gradient of the line show?
The speed
5 of 9
What if the gradient is stepper?
The greater the speed of the object.
6 of 9
What happens if the object is stationary?
The line on the distance time graph is horizontal.
7 of 9
What happens if the object is moving at a constant speed?
The line on the distance time graph is a straight line that slopes upwards.
8 of 9
What is the equation to calculate the speed of an object?
Speed in m/s = distance travelled in metres /divided/ time taken in seconds
