# A single point on a distance time graph tells the?

The vertical axis gives the distance of an object from a fixed point - the point of reference - after a time, as measured on the horizontal axis.

# How do you find the distance between two points on a graph?

The Law of Cosines: c^2=a^2 + b^2 -2abcos(ab) , c is the distance between the two points a and b and (ab) is the angle between a and b from the origin. If one point is taken a…s the origin, and a and b a re taken at right angles to each other, then cos(ab) is zero and you have Pythagora' Theorem..

# How do you find distance from an origin to a point?

plot point c so its distance from the origin is 1

# How do you find distance on a velocity time graph?

Assume time = horizontal (x) axis, and velocity = vertical (y) axis..
(Actually we should call it 'speed', since the graph conveys no information about the direction of the m…otion, only the speed. Similarly, the distance we'll find won't tell you how far from the starting point you wound up, only how much road or track you covered.).
On the graph, there is some straight or wavy line representing your speed at every instant..
-- Pick the starting time and ending time of the interval you're interested in. Draw vertical lines on the graph at the starting and ending times, long enough to cut the wavy line that represents the speed function..
-- From the value of the function at the start-time, (the point where the 'start' vertical line cuts the graph of the function), draw a horizontal line, all the way across, to the 'end' vertical line..
-- Now you must measure the area of the space bounded by the speed graph and the three straight lines you have drawn. This is easier if the graph was drawn on paper that is marked off in a grid of small squares..
There may be places where the function is below the horizontal line, as well as places where the function is above it. If so, list the area of the space where the function is below the horizontal line as a negative number..
-- When you're done, add up all the positive and negative pieces of area you have measured. The result is the total distance that the moving object traveled during the time between the 'start' and 'end' lines.

# Distance from origin to point?

The origin on a graph is the point (0,0). You can find the distance to a point by applying the Pythagorean theorem: Square the x coordinate and add it to the… square of the y - coordinate of the point. Now take the square root of your answer. The result is the straight line distance from the origin to the point.

# What does a distance time graph allow you to find?

Besides obviously distance at any instant, on a connected, continuous distance-time graph, you can obtain instantaneous velocity and instantaneous acceleration.

# Why do you need to find the inflection point on a graph?

To find the inflection points on a graph, you need to take the second derivative. Then, set that equal to zero to find the x value(s) of the inflection point(s).

# How do you find the distance between the origin of a cartesian coordinate system and a point?

To find the distance between the origin and the point (x,y) use Pythagoras on the right angled triangle which has the points (0, 0), (x, 0), (x, y) - the distance is the hypot…enuse of the triangle and so has length: distance = √(x2 + y2) This can be extended to find the distance between any two points (x1, y1) and (x2, y2): distance = √((x2 - x1)2 + (y2 - y1)2) (for the original question (x1, y1) is the origin (0, 0) and the first formula results.)

# How do you find the lowest point on a linear graph?

Lines are infinite and so do not have a highest or lowest point. You need to have a curve to have a possible lowest point.

# What is the distance from the graph of a number to the origin on a number line?

The distance from a number on a numberline to the origin, is called the absolute value.

# How do you find the roots of a polynomial of graphed points?

Join the points using a smooth curve. If you have n points choose a polynomial of degree at most (n-1). You will always be able to find polynomials of degree n or higher that …will fit but disregard them. The roots are the points at which the graph intersects the x-axis.

# How do you find points on a parabola to graph them?

Select a set of x values and find the value of y or f(x) - depending on how the parabola is defined. These are the values that you need to graph.

# How do you find distance in a speed time graph?

The distance from the origin at time t, in the direction of motion, is the area under the graph between time 0 and time t. In a simple speed-time graph the area may be calcul…ated using simple formulae for the areas of triangles, rectangles, trapeziums. In more complicated cases you will need to integrate for the area under the speed-time curve. And in seriously complex cases, you will have to use numerical estimation for the area.

# Why is it important to start at the origin when you are graphing points?

It is important for beginners because the coordinates of the graphing points are measured from the origin. More expert users don't need to do so.
