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)
