Worksheet: Graphing Velocity

In this worksheet, we will practice interpreting graphs of displacement and time and graphs of velocity and time that represent the motion of objects.

Q1:

The change in displacement of two objects with time is shown in the graph. The lines plotted on the graph are parallel.

Do the two objects have the same velocity?

  • ANo
  • BYes

Do the two objects have the same speed?

  • ANo
  • BYes

Q2:

The changes of displacement of two objects with time is shown in the graph. The lines plotted on the graph are parallel.

Do the two objects have the same velocity?

  • ANo
  • BYes

Do the two objects have the same speed?

  • AYes
  • BNo

Q3:

The change in velocity of two objects with time is shown in the graph.

Do the two objects have the same speed?

  • AYes
  • BNo

Are the two objects moved equal distances from their initial positions?

  • ANo
  • BYes

Q4:

The change in displacement of two objects with time is shown in the graph. The gray arrows in the diagram are the same length.

Do the two objects have the same velocity?

  • AYes
  • BNo

Do the two objects have the same speed?

  • AYes

  • AYes
  • BNo

Have the two objects been moved equal distances from their initial positions?

  • ANo
  • BYes

Q9:

The change of displacement of two objects with time is shown in the graph. The lines plotted on the graph are parallel.

Do the two objects have the same velocity?

  • ANo
  • BYes

Do the two objects have the same speed?

  • AYes
  • BNo

Q10:

The velocity-time graph shows the change in the velocity of a person walking in the time interval from 𝑡=0seconds to 𝑡=6seconds. The person’s starting point is their position when 𝑡=0seconds.

What is the person’s displacement from their starting point after 2 seconds?

What is the person’s displacement from their starting point after 3 seconds?

What is the person’s displacement from their starting point after 4 seconds?

What is the person’s displacement from their starting point after 5 seconds?

Q11:

The change of an object’s displacement with time is shown in the displacement–time graph. In which region of the graph is the speed of the object decreasing?

  • AA to B
  • BE to F
  • CD to E
  • DC to D
  • EB to C
