Equations of Motion & Graphs

Motion graphs tell the story of how an object moves with time.

The graphs can tell the story of an object`s displacement, velocity  or acceleration.

An aircraft`s black box records the motion data so that after any accident the motion graphs can be studied.

Blackbox

The graph above shows how the altitude and speed of an aircraft changed with time.

The graph on the right shows that an object travelled at 3 m/s for 10 seconds. In other words it moved with a constant speed of 3 m/s.
