What are the steps involved in creating a good speed - time graph

To create a good speed/time graph you need to have a title stating what the graph is showing

You need to label the x and y axies

You also need to plot your data exactly as you recorded it

Also make your numbers flow e.g 2,4,6,8 not 1,3,4,6

How would you describe the motion of an object if the line on a speed - time graph is:

Straight horizontal- Constant Speed

Straight diagonal line going up- Accelerating

Straight diagonal line going down- Deccelerating

How can you work out the average acceleration of an object by getting data from the graph (Eg. how do you find the change in speed and the change in time in order to calculate speed?)

REMEMBER!!!Velocity is the same thing asSpeed!!
