What can you say about the motion of an object if its speed-time graph is a straight line parallel to the time axis?
This speed-time graph can be plotted as follows:
Since there is no change in the velocity of the object (Y-Axis value) at any point in time (X-axis value), the object is said to be in uniform motion.
A bus starting from rest moves with a uniform acceleration of 0.1 m s-2 for 2 minutes. Find
(a) the speed acquired,
(b) the distance traveled.
A farmer moves along the boundary of a square field of side 10m in 40 s. What will be the magnitude of displacement of the farmer at the end of 2 minutes 20 seconds from his initial position?
What is the quantity which is measured by the area occupied below the velocity-time graph?
(b) the distance travelled.
