Graphs with velocity and time
Things we did with logger pro. Not responsible for misinformation/typos so don't bother reporting them (i won't change it.)

Term
 for a normal graph that has a line that is going straight out to the right at an angle, what speed (accelerating or constant) are they at?
Definition
 Constant Speed
Term
 For a normal graph that has a slight curve to it, is the person at a constant speed or accelerating?
Definition
 Accelerating
Term
 For a velocity vs time graph with a straight line going straight out, is the person accelerating, standing still, or at a constant speed?
Definition
 They are moving at a constant speed
Term
 For a picture graph like the one on your homework, how should you approach answering the question?
Definition
 Make a chart with acceleration and direction for each one.
Term
 What is it called when a graph has a downwards curve L shape?
Definition
 Deceleration
Term
 What is it called when a graph is transfering from constant to a zero acceleration (straight line?)
Definition
 deceleration
Term
 what type of motion is occuring when the slope of a velocity vs time graph is zero?
Definition
 Constant Speed
Term
 What type of motion is occuring when the slope of a velocity vs time graph is zero?
Definition
 constant speed
Term
 what type of motion is occuring when the slope of a velocity vs time graph is positive?
Definition
 A positive acceleration is occuring
Term
 What type of motion is happening when the slope of a velocity vs time graph is negative?
Definition
 Negative acceleration movement is occuring
Term
 If you were asked to draw an object at rest where would you draw it for a postition vs time and a velocity vs time?
Definition
 At the bottom of the graph
Term
 What does the slope of a posistion vs time graph stand for?
Definition
 It stands for the speed and direction in which you are moving.
