## What did distance time graph shows?

If an object moves along a straight line, the distance travelled can be represented by a distance-time graph. In a distance-time graph, the gradient of the line is equal to the speed of the object. The greater the gradient (and the steeper the line) the faster the object is moving.

**What is the slope in a distance-time graph?**

A sloping line on a distance-time graph shows that the object is moving. In a distance-time graph, the slope or gradient of the line is equal to the speed of the object. The steeper the line (and the greater the gradient) the faster the object is moving.

**What does the area under a distance time graph represent?**

The area under distance time graph gives nothing. Therefore, the area under the curve of the velocity time graph gives distance covered by the body. Note: The gradient of the curve in the distance time graph defines the velocity of the body.

### How many types of distance-time graph are there?

As a result of distance and time graphs, an object can be shown how far it has travelled. Three basic types of graph exist: Bar graphs, pie charts, and line graphs.

**What is distance time graph 7?**

A distance-time graph shows how far an object has travelled in a given time. It is a simple line graph that denotes distance versus time findings on the graph. Distance is plotted on the Y-axis. Time is plotted on the X-axis.

**What does the run between two points on a distance time graph represent?**

The slope of a distance versus time graph is velocity. This is shown at two points. Instantaneous velocity at any point is the slope of the tangent at that point. The graph of position versus time in Figure 2.13 is a curve rather than a straight line.

**What is the slope of the distance time graph?**

speed

In a distance-time graph, the slope or gradient of the line is equal to the speed of the object.

### What does a line curving upwards on a distance time graph represent?

The line on this graph is curving upwards. This shows an increase in speed, since the line is getting steeper: In other words, in a given time, the distance the object moves is change (getting larger). It is accelerating.
