In the last two sections, you had the opportunity to learn about how changes in motion related to displacement and constant velocity. In this section, you will practice building your own motion graphs using data from tables provided.

Use Kids' Zone Create-a-Graph to learn how to create accurate position vs. time and velocity vs. time graphs of data.

- Calculate the slope of the line.

Interactive popup. Assistance may be required. 10 - What does this slope indicate?

Interactive popup. Assistance may be required. The slope indicates a velocity of 10 meters per second. - What do you notice about the shape and slope of this line?

Interactive popup. Assistance may be required. The shape and the slope of the line is curved, which means that the slope gets larger and larger with time; that also indicates that the velocity is increasing as time goes by. - What does this graph indicate about the motion of this object?

Interactive popup. Assistance may be required. The motion of this object is accelerating.Now, try one more graph, but this time you will do a velocity vs. time graph.

- What is the slope of the line, and what does this slope indicate?

Interactive popup. Assistance may be required. The slope is 2. It indicates an acceleration of 2 meters per second.
