# Give two uses of graphical representation of motion.

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.
