#6 - Slope of d vs t plot shows what motion?

 

 

(d) Displacement

(distance from start) meters


 

V = ∆d/∆t

= Velocity

 

 

 

Name the 2 motions

(d) Displacement
(distance from start) meters

 

1. Constant Positive Velocity

2. Constant Negative Velocity

(backwards)

 

 

Calculating Velocity

  V = ∆d/∆t 

 

 Calculating Velocity

  V = ∆d/∆t  

 

= (10. m - 5.0 m)/(4.0 s - 2.0 s)

 

= +2.5 m/s

 

 

 

A to B?

Constant velocity

 

 

 

B to C?

 

 

Increasing Velocity,
then Decreasing Velocity

 

 

D?

 

 

 

Rest

 V = 0

 

 

 

D to E ?

 

 

 

Increasing Velocity

 

Ex) Describe the motion

d (cm)

 

 

 

 

Object at Rest
