Give two uses of graphical representation of motion.

Answer :

Two uses of Graphical representation of motion are


• Just by looking at the shape of the curve we can tell the nature of motion (i.e. uniform motion, non uniform, uniformly accelerated etc.)


For Example,


• if the distance – time graph is having straight line passing through origin then we can say that the motion is uniform motion.


• if the graph line is not straight, then it is non uniform motion.


We can deduce different quantities and also derive equation of motion from graphs.


For example,


• from the distance – time graph, if we calculate the slope of the graph line, then we can find the velocity of the object.


Also from the velocity – time graph, if we find the slope of the graph then we can find the acceleration of the object.
