Hey! For a lab, I have to make a few graphs, I just need some clarification.
Please correct me if I'm wrong. For a DT graph, where velocity is constant, the line will be straight. (Diagonal.) For a VT graph, where velocity is constant, the line will be straight. (Horizontal) ^ Confused about this though, at point 0 what will the y value be? (For example, if the velocity is 3m/s) For a AT graph, where velocity is constant, there will be NO line. (No acceleration) For a DT graph, where acceleration is constant, the line will be curved. For a VT graph, where acceleration is constant, the line will be straight. (Diagonal) For a AT graph, where acceleration is constant, the line will be straight. (Horizontal)?? ^ For this one I am also confused. I just need to know if I'm on the right track! Ones in bold are the one I'm not sure are correct. Thank you very much for reading! I appreciate any help that is offered. =)
