Created by alex.examtime9373 over 7 years ago


These flash cards describe the three equations of motion, distance-time graphs and velocity-time graphs. They supplement the knowledge learnt in the notes on equations of motion, and graphs of motion.

Resource summary

Question Answer
First equation of motion v = u + at
Second equation of motion s = ut + (1/2)at²
Third equation of motion v² = u² +2as
Distance-Time Graph Slope = velocity Time on x-axis Distance on y-axis
Velocity-Time Graph Time on x-axis Velocity on y-axis Slope = acceleration Area under the graph = distance
Equations of motion Sir Isaac Newton Used for calculations involving constant accelerations
Types of Distance-Time Graphs Steep graph = higher slope = faster velocity Horizontal graph = body is stationary
Types of velocity time graph Straight graph - constant acceleration Horizontal graph - constant velocity
