# Graph of Distance vs. Time

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.

(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.
