i have a graph that shows the motion of a cyclist.
as the velocity(m/s) goes up:1, 2, 3... the elapsed time(s) also increases, 2, 4, 6...
when the velocity is on 2 the time is on 2, when the velocity is on 3 the time is on 4...
the line that is drawn points upward

my question is, is the acceleration constant, decreasing, or increasing.. i know the formula for acceleration is is velocity/time.so i think the answer is decreasing???

  • Physics -

    If v increases with time, the bike is accelerating. In this case, the acceleration appears (from your description) to be constant since the change in velocity per time interval remains the same.

    Hndi ko nga po alam kung ano ang sagot,nag hihingi po ako ng sagot sa aking tanong.
