Distance Time Graph
Tells you how far an object has traveled, how fast its moving, and all the changes in speed the object experienced.
What is speed?
Change in distance over a specific amount of time.
Steep
Having a sharp incline
The steeper the slope on a graph...
the faster the speed
The flatter the slope of a graph...
the slower the speed
When there is no slope of a graph...
the object is at rest (not moving)
