Flashcards in Velocity and Distance-Time Graphs Deck (18):
1

If something has velocity is has both?

Speed.
Direction.

2

What is Speed and velocity?

How fast you're going.

3

What is speed and velocity measured in?

m/s.
or
Km/h or mph.

4

What is only speed?

How fast you are going with no regard to the direction.

5

What is only velocity?

Must have the direction specified.

6

What is a distance time graph?

Describes something travelling through time and space.

7

Distance divided by time equals?

Speed.

8

The gradient on a distance-time graph tells us what?

How fast the object is travelling.

9

The gradient is what?

Change in distance divided by the change in time.

10

What is the gradient?

Speed.

11

Flat sections on the graph means what?

It's stationary - it's stopped.

12

Steady speed is when?

There is sections of straight uphill or down hill.

13

The steeper the graph...

The faster it's going.

14

Downhill sections mean what?

It's going back towards its starting point.

15

Curves in the graph represent...

Acceleration.
Deceleration.

16

Steepening curve means what?

It's speeding up.

17

Levelling off curve means what?

Its's slowing down.

18

How do you calculate speed from a distance-time graph?

Distance divided by time.
