Graphical Representation of Motion

Distance-Time Graph

  • In this graph, distance is taken along the y-axis and time is taken along the x–axis.

For uniform speed, a graph of distance travelled against time is a straight line, as rate of change of change of distance with respect to time is constant

 

Velocity-Time Graph

  • In this graph, velocity is taken along the y-axis and time is taken along the x–axis.
  • For uniform acceleration, a graph of velocity against time is a straight line.

  • The area enclosed by velocity-time graph and the time axis will be equal to the magnitude of the displacement.
