- Topic Cluster: Kinematics
- Topic: Forward Kinematics Qualitative
- Objective: For single-step descriptions of motion, identify position, velocity, and acceleration graphs that describe that motion; for a given position, velocity, or acceleration graph, identify two other graphs that describe the same motion.
- Content: Position-time graphs, velocity-time graphs, and acceleration-time graphs can represent the same example of motion.
- Level: 2

Position-Time Graph

Velocity-Time Graph

Acceleration-Time Graph

Motion Map

Moving at a Constant Velocity

Accelerating from Rest

Slowing down to Rest

Not Moving

It's very important to know that the acceleration-time graph
of something moving at a constant velocity
and something not moving at all are *exactly* the same!
They both have an acceleration of zero!

The boxes below contain 11 different graphs. They include position-time, velocity-time, and acceleration-time graphs. Below the boxes are four descriptions of different types of motion. For each description of motion, select three different graphs that describe the motion of that object. One of the graphs is used twice.

- A driver finishes a race and then slows down to a stop. Select four boxes that describe this motion.
- A driver is started a race and speeds up as fast as she can. Select four boxes that describe this motion.
- The race hasn't started yet, and the car is not moving. Select four boxes that describe this motion.
- During most of the race, the car is moving at a constant speed. Select four boxes that describe this motion.
