# Which of the two A and B has greater velocity in the following? Give reason for your reply. A has greater velocity.

Explanation:

The slope of distance and time graph gives the velocity.

Since,

Velocity = The formula for slope of any graph line is the ratio of change in value of y-axis to the change in value of x-axis.

x = t

y = s

so, slope =  Thus from the above diagram, if we estimate the change of distance on y-axis to the change of time on x-axis of both A and B, then we will find that the slope corresponding to A is greater as change in distance in A is more than that of B, if we keep the change in time constant.

Hence A has higher velocity than B
