Graphs of Motion

Graphs of motion


The figure above shows the relationship between displacement-time graph, velocity-time graph and acceleration-time graph.

Gradient of a displacement-time graph is the instantaneous velocity.

Gradient of a velocity-time graph is the acceleration. The area under a velocity-time graph is the change in displacement.

Area under an acceleration-time graph is the change in velocity.
