Position on time graphs

POSITION ON TIME GRAPHS


The axis

The Axis

  • The X-axis is time

  • The Y-axis is position

    • This needs to go positive and negative

– Position (m)+

Time (s)


Upward lines

Upward lines

  • Upward lines (positive slopes) mean the object is going forward / right

  • Steeper lines mean faster velocity

– Position (m)+

Time (s)


Downward lines

Downward lines

  • Downward lines (negative slope) mean the object is moving backwards or left.

  • Steeper lines mean faster velocity

– Position (m)+

Time (s)


Horizontal line

Horizontal line

  • A horizontal or flat line means that the object is not moving (staying at the same position).

  • Flat lines mean no velocity

– Position (m)+

Time (s)


Calculating velocity

Calculating velocity

  • These graphs can show velocity by calculating the slope

    • The steeper the slope the faster the object’s velocity

  • Slope is rise / run. So (positionf – positioni) / (timef – timei)
