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.
