Graphical Analysis of Motion Practice Problems 1. Use the graph shown to answer the questions __________ __________ __________ __________ __________ a. b. c. d. e. How far does the object travel between 5 and 10 seconds? How far does the object travel between 15 and 20 seconds? During what time interval is the velocity zero? What is the velocity between 10 and 15 seconds? Is the object accelerating during this trip? 2. Use the graph shown to answer the questions __________ __________ __________ __________ __________ a. b. c. d. e. At what time was the car stopped? At what time did the car have the greatest velocity? How fast was the car going at 1.0 h? At what time(s) was the car accelerating? What was the acceleration at 0.9 h? 3. Use the graph below to answer the following questions Vel oci ty (km /h, S) vs. Time (x 0.00 1 h) V e l o c i t y 200 180 160 140 120 100 80 60 40 20 0 Car A Car B 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Tim e (0.001 hours ) __________ __________ __________ __________ side? __________ a. b. c. d. At what time are the cars going at the same velocity? How far has car A traveled when they reach the same velocity? At what time does car A reach car B? How far have each of the cars traveled when they are side by e. Which car is ahead at 0.008 h? 4. On a separate sheet of graph paper, draw the corresponding DT and AT graphs.
