Graphs

There are two main types of graphs:

Gradient: Velocity

Steepness: The steeper the graph, the faster the velocity (which is constant) is.

Curve: Change in velocity

Horizontal: Stationary

 

The second type of graph is a Velocity Time Graph (V-T)

A v-t graphs is a representation that shows the relationship between the object’s velocity and the time passed. The velocity is represented on the y-axis, while the time on the x-axis.

Gradient: Acceleration. (Calculated by V/T)

Increase in Speed: Also meant as positive acceleration, it is manifested by the Y-axis increasing.

Decrease in Speed: The opposite, so negative acceleration and is manifested by the Y-axis decreasing.

Flatline: Happens when the gradient is equal to 0, so when no acceleration is occurring.
