Displacement (Distance) time graph?

Expert Answer:

First make a table as follows.

Assume that the body falls from a height of h. Assuming the ground is the zero positon.

Use s = ut +1/2 at^2. Put a = 9.8m/s^2 and u =0.

i) take t = 0.1 and use the above formula to find s.

ii) take t = 0.2 and use the above formula to find s.

...

Distance-time

time

in seconds

Position

in meters

0 h
0.1 (h -0.049h)=0.951h

Similarly find the position of the body at time 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, ...

Put the values into a table and then plot a graph.

In this case distance and displacement are the same because the object is travelling along a straight line.
