One Dimensional Motion: Position versus time graphs
 

In the following exercises, the graph drawn is of position versus time. The animation shows the position of a puck as time progresses. Note the position of the puck at various times and compare the animation to the graph. You might want to ask yourself the following questions:
  • When does the puck pass by the origin?
  • When is the speed of the pack maximum and when is it minimum?
  • When is the puck speeding up and when is it slowing down?
