How to make a graph of distance vs. time?
To make a graph the information given below is the distance vs. time.
d = 5t. Here, d = distance and t = time.
Read the questions carefully and answer the questions given below:
(i) Find the distance covered when time is 3 sec.
(ii) Find the distance covered in 5 seconds.
(iii) Find the time in which the body covered 30 m.
Solution:
We know d = 5t
When the value of t = 1 then d = 5(1) = 5
When the value of t = 2 then d = 5(2) = 10
When the value of t = 3 then d = 5(3) = 15
When the value of t = 4 then d = 5(4) = 20
When the value of t = 5 then d = 5(5) = 25
When the value of t = 6 then d = 5(6) = 30
When the value of t = 7 then d = 5(7) = 35
Arrange the values of d and t in the table.
Now plot the points (1, 5),
(2, 10), (3, 15), (4, 20), (5, 25),
(6, 30), (7, 35) of the equation d = 5t on the graph paper.
(i) From the graph we observe that in 3 seconds the distance covered is 15 meters.
(ii) From the graph we observe that in 5 seconds the distance covered is 25 meters.
(iii) From the graph we observe that the body covered 30 meters in 6 seconds.
