GCSE Physics > Graphs of Motion

There is an important difference between Distance/Time graphs and Speed/Time graphs. They are illustrated below to help you remember how they work.

Distance/Time Graphs

Gradient of Graph   =   Distance   =   Speed
                                            Time

Speed/Time Graphs

Gradient of Graph   =   Increase in Speed   =   Acceleration
                                                    Time

Area under graph   =   1/2   x   final speed   x   time
Area under graph   =   average speed   x   time
Area under graph   =   Distance travelled
