Many things do not move with uniform motion.  Today we will start exploring how graphs of uniform motion and non-uniform motion might compare.  You have been used to plotting position-time graphs, but today we will see what graphs of velocity-time graphs might look like for non-uniform motion.

Things you should be able to do after today:

  • Draw a position-time graph and a velocity-time graph from the same data
  • Describe how a position-time graph looks when a velocity-time graph has a positive slope
  • Desrcibe how a position-time graph looks when the velocity-time graph has a negative slope
