Graphing Motion:
1. Consider a Distance - Time Graph (like this)
What does each of the following tell us about the data
presented in this graph:
a. Slope :
b. Steeper Slope :
c. Straight line on the left:
d. Flat Line:
2. In a distance time graph acceleration is shown with a _______________________
3. Looking at the graph above answer the
following questions:
a. Which object has the most constant
positive speed for the entire ten seconds?
b. Which object accelerated the fastest at any
given time?
c. Which object was stopped the longest?
d. Which object shows acceleration?
e. Which object decelerates for the longest amount of time.
4. When considering a Speed - time graph (like below); Answer the following:
a. Slope of the line tells us:
b. A positive slope means:
c. A negative slope means:
d. a Straight line means:
e. a flat line means:
f. Where on this graph is there speeding up of the object?
g. Where on this graph is there slowing down of the object?
h. Where is there no acceleration?
1 Define force:
2. What are the two types of forces we can talk about and explain:
3. Newtons first law ties together the ideas of forces and motion. Please restate newtons first law in the
space below:
4. Newton’s first law is also called :
5. As mass increases, Inertia also ________________
6. Define friction.
7. Friction depends on
8. Friction is greater between:
