Lesson 3.1: Introduction

One dimensional motion can be conveniently represented with different types of graphs. You should try to understand these graphs thoroughly, since some types of complex problems can be easily solved with the help of graphs.

Commonly used graphs are:

1) Distance-Time Graph

  • for Uniform Speed
  • for Non-Uniform Speed

2) Velocity -Time Graph

  • for Uniform Motion
  • for Uniformly Accelerated Motion
  • for Uniformly Retarded Motion
  • for Non-Uniformly Accelerated Motion

These graphs are discussed in details in the following lessons.
