Motion is described by the equation d = vt

The slope (gradient) of the DT graph = Velocity

The steeper the line of a DT graph, the greater the velocity of the body

Uniform accelerated motion is a motion with the constant acceleration (a – const)

Slope (gradient) of the velocity –time graph

v(t) = acceleration

The steeper the line of the graph v(t) the greater the acceleration of the body

Slide 12

A … Starts at home (origin) and goes forward slowly

B … Not moving (position remains constant as time progresses)

C … Turns around and goes in the other direction quickly, passing up home

Increasing & Decreasing Displacement

Increasing

Decreasing

On a position vs. time graph:

Increasing means moving forward (positive direction).

Decreasing means moving backwards (negative direction).

Slide 15

Concavity shows acceleration

On a position vs. time graph:

Concave up means positive acceleration.

Concave down means negative acceleration.

Graphing Tips

Line up the graphs vertically.

Draw vertical dashed lines at special points except intercepts.

Map the slopes of the position graph onto the velocity graph.

A red peak or valley means a blue time intercept.

Slide 20

The same rules apply in making an acceleration graph from a velocity graph. Just graph the slopes! Note: a positive constant slope in blue means a positive constant green segment. The steeper the blue slope, the farther the green segment is from the time axis.
