# How is the velocity-time graph related to the distance traveled?

###### Wiki User

The product of velocity and time yields distance travelled if the velocity is constant for the time in question. If velocity is not constant, one must first calculate the average velocity over a given time period before multiplying it by the time involved.

distance time graph is a graph traveled in a graph which shows how much we have traveled in equal period of time.

A graph with distance traveled on one axis and time on the other. Time will go on the x axis and distance on the y because distance depends on the time.

X axis is time. Y-axis is distance traveled

an increasing distance is traveled during each unit of time

With distance on the x axis and time on the y axis a steep line would indicate a short distance traveled over a long period of time, depending on the scale of the graph.

1. Slope of the graph gives acceleration. 2. Area under the graph gives the total distance traveled.

A distance-time graph is created by placing the distance on the vertical axis with the time placed on the horizontal axis. The values can then be plotted using distance traveled on different intervals.

A bobsled's distance-time graph indicates that it traveled 100 m in 25 s. What is the bobsled's speed

Line graph. I would suggest a scatter graph. That would allow you to determine the line of best fit.

That question can only be answered by the person who made the graph from the data table, referred to as "you" in the question. Get busy!

Distance time graph shows the distance an object has traveled with respect to time. Time is plotted on the horizontal axis and distance is plotted on the vertical axis. The slope of the graph at any particular point in time will be equal to the instantaneous velocity at that point in time.

On a distance-time graph, the gradient of the line is numerically equal to the speed. therefore if you get the rise over the run you should be able to calculate the speed traveled at.

The area under a speed/time graph, between two time points, indicates the total distance traveled during that time.

A graph which shows how distance(dependent quantity) varies with time(independent quantity). For example, if you want to know how much distance a hare covers in a running race, you plot time along x axis, in seconds(say), and the distance it has traveled along the y axis, in meters(say) , so that by looking at the graph, you know how much distance the hare has traveled from the starting point at any instant of time, or distance between any two given times, and so on! Of course, I don't see why it features here in the relativity section! Or is it that you are asking what a space-time diagram is?
