1

What will the graph show if the object is stationary on a distance time graph?

A horizontal line

2

What is shown on a distance time graph if the object is travelling at constant speed?

A straight line sloping upwards

3

What is velocity?

Speed in a given direction

4

What happens to velocity of an object changed direction?

It also changes

5

What is it called when an objects velocity changes?

Acceleration

6

What is deceleration?

A negative acceleration (slowing down)

7

What does the gradient of the line represent in velocity time graphs?

Acceleration

8

What acceleration does an object have if its line on a velocity time graph is horizontal?

Zero (constant speed)

9

If the line's gradient is negative on a velocity time graph what does this show?

The object is decelerating

10

What is the area under the line on a velocity time graph?

The distance travelled

11

What represents the speed in a distance time graph?

The gradient
