Maths, velocity time graph
posted by Anon
I am asked to draw a graph of the total distance traveled versus the total time taken for a journey between points A and B. The journey never stops but midway through its velocity remains stable for a good period of the journey.
So regarding the shape of the graph I assume if time is the y axis and distance is the x axis then the graph will always be increasing but the point where it's velocity remained stable will have a reduced gradient and will not be as steep as the rest. Does this sound reasonable?

Steve
yes indeed.
