Exploration: Graphing Velocity
- Erica Ballou
- Difference and Slope
The pink line (B) is fixed. Use it to answer questions 1-5.
1. What is the distance traveled by object B?
2. How long did it take object B to reach its end point?
Recall the velocity formula: v=d/t. 3. Using the velocity formula, what is the velocity of B?
Use the graph to make estimates about data that was not collected in class. 4. How far would object B go in 24 seconds?
5. How long would it take for object B to travel 15 meters?
Using the blue and green lines (C and D) to explore.
6. What is the relationship between the slope (steepness) of the line and the velocity of the object?
