# Graphical Representation of Motion

**Graphical Representation of Motion**

** 1. Distance – Time Graph**

It represents a change in position of the object with respect to time. The graph in case the object is stationary (means the distance is constant at all time intervals) – Straight line graph parallel to x = axis

Distance-time Graph in case of Stationary object:

**The graph in case of uniform motion – Straight line graph**

« The graph in case of non-uniform motion – Graph has different shapes:

**2. Velocity – Time Graphs:**

« Constant velocity – Straight line graph, velocity is always parallel to the x-axis

« Uniform Velocity / Uniform Acceleration – Straight line graph

« Non-Uniform Velocity / Non-Uniform Acceleration – Graph can have different shapes
