  1. Sketch a distance-time graph showing no movement for a period of 10 seconds.
  2. Sketch a velocity-time graph showing a car traveling at a constant velocity for 10 min.
  3. Sketch a velocity-time graph showing a car going from 0 km/h to 50 km/h over 30 sec.
  4. Sketch a velocity-time graph showing a car going from 60 km/h to 0 km/h over 60 sec.
  5. Sketch a velocity-time graph showing a car going from 0 km/h to 50 km/h over 20 sec, then maintaining that speed for 10sec and finally coming to a stop over 30sec
  6. Sketch a velocity-time graph showing a car going from 0 km/h to 50Km/h over 20 sec, then maintaining that speed for 10sec before going to 20 km/h over 10 sec and finally coming to a stop over 20sec.
    What was the total time of the journey?
    • The Total Journey Time was 60 seconds.
  7. Which of the following Velocity-Time Graphs show
    1. Negative Acceleration
    2. Zero Acceleration
    3. The greatest acceleration


    • 1. B Negative Acceleration
    • The velocity is dropping towards zero. The object is decelerating or the acceleration is negative.

    • 2. A Zero Acceleration
    • The velocity of the object is constant is is not speeding up or slowing down. It is not accelerating.

    • 3. B The greatest acceleration
    • The slope of line B is greater than the slope of line C showing that B is Accelerating move than C.
