## 10 Questions

### What does a horizontal line on a position vs. time graph indicate?

The object is stationary

### When does the slope of a position vs. time graph become negative?

When the object changes direction

### How is velocity calculated from a position vs. time graph?

By taking the slope of the line

### What does a positive slope on a position vs. time graph indicate?

The object is moving forward

### When does an object change direction in a position vs. time graph?

When the line changes direction

### What does a negative velocity value indicate in a position vs. time graph?

The object is moving backward

### How is the slope calculated in a position vs. time graph?

By taking the change in distance divided by change in time

### Which value is used to calculate velocity from a position vs. time graph?

$x$ and $y$ values at different times

### What happens to velocity when an object changes direction on a position vs. time graph?

Velocity changes sign

### What type of line represents an object that is not moving on a position vs. time graph?

Horizontal line

Explore the concept of motion in one dimension, where objects move linearly through a given space over time. Learn about the behavior of moving objects and how their position changes with time.
