1

What is on the x and y axis of a distance time graph ?

X axis = time
Y axis = distance

2

What does a diagonal line in a distance time graph indicate ?

A constant speed

3

What does a horizontal line in a distance time graph indicate ?

An object has stopped moving

4

What does the gradient of the line represent in a distance time graph ?

Represents velocity

5

Equation for speed


Speed = distance/ time

6

What runs along the X axis and Y axis on a velocity time graph ?

X axis - time
Y axis - velocity

7

What does a horizontal line on a velocity time graph indicate ?

Constant speed

8

What does a diagonal line on a velocity time graph indicate ?

Constant acceleration

9

What does a vertical line on a velocity time graph indicate ?

The object has stopped moving

10

What graph does the distance under the indicate the distance travelled ?

Velocity time graph

11

Equation for acceleration



Acc = change in velocity / time
