## How is accelerated motion represented on a distance time graph?

If the speed of an object changes, it will be accelerating or decelerating . This can be shown as a curved line on a distance-time graph. If an object is accelerating or decelerating, its speed can be calculated at any particular time by: drawing a tangent to the curve at that time.

## What represent an accelerated motion?

Velocity is often thought of as an object’s speed with a direction. Thus, objects which are accelerating are either speeding up, slowing down or changing directions. Changing the velocity in any one of these three ways would be an example of an accelerated motion. How is acceleration defined?

**What kind of line does the distance time graph?**

straight line

As in uniform motion, the distance time graph would be a straight line, because the equal distance is covered in equal units of time.

### What does a horizontal line show on a distance time graph?

A distance-time graph tells us how far an object has moved with time. A horizontal line means the object is. not changing its position – it is not moving, it is at rest.

### What is accelerated motion class 9?

acceleration. and this kind of motion is called accelerated motion. A body has uniform acceleration if it travels in a straight line and its velocity increases by equal amount in equal intervals of time for example freely falling bodies, motion of ball rolling down the inclined plane etc.

**What type of motion is represented by the following distance time graph?**

The following graph represents uniform motion in such a way that the body covers a particular distance in a particular time and comes back to initial position in same time.

## How is a distance time graph plotted?

A distance-time graph shows how far an object has travelled in a given time. It is a simple line graph that denotes distance versus time findings on the graph. Distance is plotted on the Y-axis. Time is plotted on the X-axis.

## What is the motion of horizontal line?

A horizontal line on a distance-time graph shows no change in distance, therefore there is no motion. The object is stationary. 2.
