|Class 7 Physics Motion and Time||Distance-Time Graph|
This is usually drawn as a line graph as it taken two variable quantities – Distance and Time. In a Distance-Time graph, Distance is considered on the Y-axis (Vertical) and Time is considered on the X-axis (Horizontal).
Below is an example of how to prepare a Distance-Time graph based on data
Some of the points to be kept in mind while choosing the most suitable scale for drawing a graph are:
Slopecalculation using D-T Graph:Slope of a Distance-Time graph (From point A to F) is also the speed at every instant. Higher the slope greater is the speed of that object. Below is a diagram to calculate slope.
