Distance Time (DT) Graph
Slope of a DT graph gives speed
D
This is a graph of an object
not
moving.
No
slope = No speed
T
Distance Time (DT) Graph
Slope of a DT graph gives speed
D
This is a graph of an object
moving with constant speed.
Straight line has one slope =
one speed or constant speed
T
Distance Time (DT) Graph
Slope of a DT graph gives speed
D
This is a graph of an object
moving with changing speed.
Increasing
slope = increasing
speed = accelerating
T
Distance Time (DT) Graph
Slope of a DT graph gives speed
D
This is a graph of an object
moving with changing speed.
Decreasing slope = decreasing
speed = Slowing down
T
Velocity Time (VT) Graph
Slope of a VT graph gives Acceleration
V
This is a graph of an object
moving with constant velocity.
No
slope = No acceleration
T
Velocity Time (VT) Graph
Slope of a VT graph gives Acceleration
V
This is a graph of an object
moving with constant
acceleration.
Straight line has one slope =
one or constant acceleration
T
Velocity Time (VT) Graph
Slope of a VT graph gives Acceleration
V
This is a graph of an object
moving with changing slope.
Increasing
slope = increasing
speed=non

uniform acceleration
T
Velocity Time (VT) Graph
Slope of a VT graph gives acceleration
V
This is a graph of an object
moving with Non uniform
acceleration.
Decreasing slope = decreasing
acceleration

Velocity Time (VT) Graph
Area under a VT graph gives displacement
V
Here the area under the graph
is a triangle
Area = ½ Base x Height
T
Velocity Time (VT) Graph
Area under a VT graph gives displacement
V
Here the area under the graph
is a triangle and a rectangle
Area = [½ Base x Height] +
[Length x Width]
T
Actual distance covered is called distance
The distance from the origin is called
displacement
Difference between Distance and
Displacement
Distance is always
positive
, but
Displacement can be either
positive or
negative
Distance
is a scalar
Displacement
is a vector
Difference between Distance and
Displacement
Speed is only magnitude
Velocity gives you a magnitude and a direction
Difference between Speed and
Velocity
Speed is always
positive
Velocity can be either
positive or negative
Speed
is a scalar
Velocity
is a vector
Difference between Speed and
Velocity
Speed = Distance/time ( V=∆d/ ∆ t)
Unit of speed in metric system is m/s
Constant Speed or Velocity

a = g = 9.8m/s

or 10m/s

That means an object will increase speed at the rate
10m/s every second
Since Gravity acts in the downward direction,
objects speed up when dropped and slow down
when thrown up.
