### What is position - time graph?

A position-time graph, is one in which position is
plotted on the y-axis and the time is on the x-axis. A
position-time graph is similar to a distance-time graph, but
direction of motion in the y-axis.

### How to convert a position time graph into a velocity time graph?

By calculating the slope at different or deisired points on the
position-time graph by drawing tangents at the points. Since,
slopes on a position-time graph represent velocity, you now have
the velocity of the object at the time on which you have drawn the
tangents. Now, that you have the velocity and you already had the
time, all you have to is sketch the velocity-time graph
Remember
Slope (velocity on position-time graph)= 'd2-d1' divided by
't2-t1'

### Graphical representation of motion?

Position-Time Graph
You can graph motion on a position vs time graph. On a position
vs time graph, position is on the y-axis and time is on the x-axis.
If the velocity is constant, the graph will be a straight line and
the slope is average velocity. If the motion is accelerating, the
graph will be a curved line.
Velocity-Time Graph
You can also graph motion on a Velocity-Time graph. On a
velocity vs time graph, velocity is on the y-axis, time is...

###### Asked in Science

### What information can be learned from a position time graph and a speed time graph?

A position time graph can show you velocity. As time changes, so
does position, and the velocity of the object can be determined.
For a speed time graph, you can derive acceleration. As time
changes, so does velocity, and the acceleration of the object can
be determined.
If you are plotting velocity (speed) versus time, the slope is the
acceleration.

### What is the condition of the position-time graph when the velocity-time graph passes through zero?

As, in the velocity-time graph, curves passes through zero means
'when time is zero velocity is zero'. Velocity is time derivative
of displacement. So displacement is maximum or minimum when time is
zero in position-time graph.

### What is the difference between a velocity time graph and a position time graph?

Simply put, a velocity time graph is velocity (m/s) in the Y
coordinate and time (s) in the X
and a position time graph is distance (m) in the Y coordinate
and time (s) in the X
if you where to find the slope of a tangent on a distance time
graph, it would give you the velocity whereas the slope on a
velocity time graph would give you the acceleration.

### What are the limitations for a position vs time graph?

Position time graph is useful only in the case of 1D motion, you
can't made a x-t graph for 3D motion (try ;) ). You need extra
efforts to do this because you need a time refrence.
So position time graph is valuable for straight line (sometimes
2D) motion only, not for 3D.
