Lesson Worksheet: Distance–Time Graphs Science
In this worksheet, we will practice using distance–time graphs to compare the speeds of objects.
Fill in the blank: On a distance–time graph, the less steep the line through a set of points, the .
The graph shows the distance three toy cars move each second. Which of the tables shows the motion of the car represented by the orange crosses on the graph?
Time Moved For (s) 0 1 2 3 4 5 Distance Moved (m) 0 1 2 3 4 5
Time Moved For (s) 0 1 2 3 4 5 Distance Moved (m) 3 6 9 12 15
Time Moved For (s) 0 1 2 3 4 5 Distance Moved (m) 0 2 4 6 8 10
Fill in the blank: On a distance–time graph, the steeper the line through a set of points, the .
The graph of distance and time shows a set of points. Which of the following does each marker on the graph show?
- AA value of time only
- BA value of distance only
- CA value of distance and a value of time
For times after the first four seconds shown on the graph, which color line shows the greatest speed?
A toy car is made to travel different distances, and the time taken to travel each distance is recorded. The results are shown in the table and also on the graph. Which reading from the table records the measurement of distance and time that are shown by the pink marker on the graph?
|Reading||Distance Moved (m)||Time Taken (s)|
The motion of a running man is shown by the blue line. The red line shows the motion of a woman who is also running. Which of the following is correct?
- AThe woman started to run before the man did.
- BBoth the man and the woman started to run at the same time.
- CThe woman started to run after the man did.
