Lesson Worksheet: Interpreting Graphs of Motion Science

In this worksheet, we will practice comparing a distance–time graph to a description of the motion of an object.

Q1:

Which of the following distance–time graphs shows an object that does not move?

  • A
  • B
  • C

Q2:

Which of the following distance–time graphs shows an object initially moving with constant speed that stops moving and then starts moving again with a lesser constant speed?

  • A
  • B

Q3:

Which of the following distance–time graphs shows an object initially moving with constant speed that stops moving and then starts moving again with a greater constant speed?

  • A
  • B

Q4:

Which of the following distance–time graphs shows an object that initially accelerates and then decelerates?

  • A
  • B
  • C

Q5:

Which of the following distance–time graphs shows an object that has uniform deceleration?

  • A
  • B
  • C
  • D

Q6:

Which of the following correctly states how the graph shows the speed of an object increasing?

  • AAll the parts of the line show speed increasing.
  • BOnly the pink part of the line shows speed increasing.
  • COnly the blue part of the line shows speed increasing.

Q7:

Which of the following distance–time graphs shows an object that has increasing speed and uniform acceleration?

  • A
  • B
  • C
  • D

Q8:

Consider the following graph. The motion of object A is represented by the solid line. The motion of object B is represented by the dashed line. Which of the following statements correctly compares the distances traveled by the objects?

  • AObject A travels the greater distance.
  • BObject B travels the greater distance.
  • CThe distances traveled are equal.

Q9:

Which of the lines shown on the following distance–time graph represents the object with the greatest acceleration?

  • ALine B
  • BLine C
  • CLine A
  • DThe objects have equal acceleration.

Q10:

Which of the following most correctly describes the motion represented by the following distance–time graph? The time intervals shown are equal.

  • AThe solid and dashed lines represent the same uniformly accelerated motion.
  • BThe solid line represents uniform motion, and the dashed line represents accelerated motion.
  • CThe solid line represents accelerated motion, and the dashed line represents uniform motion.
  • DThe solid line represents accelerated motion, and the dashed line also represents accelerated motion but with a different value of acceleration.
