Examples of distance-time graph calculation questions
Questions based on distance-time graphs Q2.1 The graph below shows part of a car journey.
Distance - time graph for a short car journey Interpretation question using speed = distance / time (a) Including calculating the average speed, describe and explain the motion of the car between:
(b) What is the average speed of the car while it is moving?
(c) How can you find the specific speed of the car at any point on the graph? (d) What is the speed of car at 56 seconds?
Q2.2 The graph below summarises part of the journey of a train (somewhat delayed at some point!).
Interpretation question using speed = distance / time and giving your answers in km/hour and m/s (a) What is the average speed between 1300 and 1400 hours? (b) What is the average speed between 1530 and 1800 hours? (c) How long was the train stopped for? (d) What was the average speed for the whole journey?
