Things to know!

2
Velocity-Time Graphs A velocity-time (V-T) graph shows an object’s velocity as a function of time. A horizontal line = constant velocity. A straight diagonal line = constant acceleration. Acceleration = change in velocity over time. Positive slope = positive acceleration. Not necessarily speeding up! Negative slope = negative acceleration. Not necessarily slowing down!

3
Velocity-Time Graphs A horizontal line on the V-T graph means constant velocity. time (s) velocity (m/s) + - Object is moving at a constant velocity in the + direction

4
Velocity-Time Graphs A horizontal line on the V-T graph means constant velocity. time (s) velocity (m/s) + - Object is moving at a constant velocity in - direction

5
Velocity-Time Graphs If an object isn’t moving, its velocity is zero. time (s) velocity (m/s) + - Object is at rest

6
Velocity-Time Graphs If the V-T line has a positive slope, the object is undergoing acceleration in positive direction. If v is in positive quadrant, object is speeding up. If v is in negative quadrant, object is slowing down.

7
Velocity-Time Graphs V-T graph has positive slope. time (s) velocity (m/s) + - Positive velocity and positive slope: object is speeding up! time (s) velocity (m/s) + - Negative velocity and positive slope,: object is slowing down.

8
Velocity-Time Graphs If the V-T line has a negative slope, the object is undergoing acceleration in the negative direction. If v is positive, the object is slowing down. If v is negative also, the object is speeding up.

9
Velocity-Time Graphs V-T graph has negative slope. time (s) velocity (m/s) + - Positive velocity and negative acceleration: object is slowing down, time (s) velocity (m/s) + - Negative velocity and negative acceleration: object is speeding up! (in negative direction)
