3. Graphs  :

(i) Straight line :
A linear relation between y & x represents a straight line.
General equation of straight line
y = mx + c
m ≡ slope of line 
c ≡y intercept i.e. where the line cuts the y-axis.
Slope is defined as the tan of  angle made by the  straight line with positive x-axis in anticlockwise 
direction.

m < 0 ⇒  θ > 90°  
m > 0  ⇒ θ < 90°

Explanation

(1)   Graphs Notes | Study Physics Class 11 - NEET  Body is at rest at x0.


(2)  Graphs Notes | Study Physics Class 11 - NEET   Body starts from origin and is moving with speed tan θ away from origin.


(3) Graphs Notes | Study Physics Class 11 - NEET    Body starts from rest from origin and moves away from origin with increasing speed velocity and positive acceleration.   

(4)  Graphs Notes | Study Physics Class 11 - NEET   Body starts from rest from x = x0 and moves away from origin with increasing  velocity or +ve acceleration.

(5) Graphs Notes | Study Physics Class 11 - NEET Body starts from x = x0 and  is moving toward the origin with constant velocity passes throw origin after same time and continues to move away from origin.

(6) Graphs Notes | Study Physics Class 11 - NEET    Body starts from rest at x = x0 and then moves with increasing speed towards origin  

∴ acceleration is –ve

 

7)  Body starts moving away from origin with some initial speed. Speed of  body is  decreasing till t1 and it becomes 0 momentarily of t = t1 and at this instant. Its reverses its direction  and move towards the origin with increasing speed. 


(8) Graphs Notes | Study Physics Class 11 - NEET    Body starts from origin moves away from origin in the –ve x-axis at t = t1 with decreasing speed and at t= t1 it comes at rest momentarily, Reverses its direction  moves towards the origin the increasing speed. Crosses the origin at t = t2.


(9) Graphs Notes | Study Physics Class 11 - NEETBody starts from origin from rest and moves away from origin with increasing  speed.


(B) V-t Graphs 

(1)  Graphs Notes | Study Physics Class 11 - NEET   Body is always at rest.

(2)  Graphs Notes | Study Physics Class 11 - NEET   Body is moving with constant velocity v0

(3) Graphs Notes | Study Physics Class 11 - NEET    Body is at rest initially then it starts moving with its velocity increasing at a  constant rate i.e. body is moving with constant acceleration.

(4) Graphs Notes | Study Physics Class 11 - NEET    Body starts its motion with initial velocity v0 and continues to move with its velocity  increasing at a constant rate i.e.  acceleration of the body is constant.

 

(5) Graphs Notes | Study Physics Class 11 - NEET   Body starts its motion with initial velocity v0. Then it continues to move with its  velocity decreasing at a constant rate i.e. acceleration of the body is negative  and constant.  At t = t0 the body comes to rest instantaneously and reverses its direction of motion and then continues to move with decreasing velocity or increasing speed.
For 0 < t < t0    motion of the body is deaccelerated (∴ speed is decreasing)
t > t0  motion of the body is accelerated (∴ speed is increasing)


(6) Graphs Notes | Study Physics Class 11 - NEET    Body is at rest initially. Then it starts moving with increasing velocity. As time  increases its velocity is increasing more rapidly. i.e. the moving with increasing  acceleration.

(7)  Graphs Notes | Study Physics Class 11 - NEET   Body starts its motion with initial velocity v0. Its  velocity is decreasing with time and at t = t0 . It becomes zero after body reverse its direction of motion and continues to move with decreasing velocity or increasing speed. Since velocity  of the body is decreasing for whole motion. Therefore, its acceleration is negative.For 0 < t < t0    motion of the  body is deaccelerated (speed is decreasing) t > t0  motion of the body is accelerated (Q speed is increasing)
(C) Reading of a - t Graphs

(1) Graphs Notes | Study Physics Class 11 - NEET    acceleration of the body is zero that means the body is moving constant velocity.

(3) Graphs Notes | Study Physics Class 11 - NEET    Acceleration of the body is constant and negative


 

(4)   Graphs Notes | Study Physics Class 11 - NEET  Initially the acceleration of  the body is zero. Then its acceleration is increasing 
at a constant rate.

(5)  Graphs Notes | Study Physics Class 11 - NEET   The body starts accelerating(initial acceleration zero) at t = 0. Its acceleration is negative for whole of its motion and is decreasing at a constant rate.

(6) Graphs Notes | Study Physics Class 11 - NEET Initially acceleration of the body is zero. Its acceleration is positive for whole of  its motion. Its acceleration is increasing for whole of its motion.

Some important points : 

  • Graphs Notes | Study Physics Class 11 - NEET

 ⇒ Δv = area under the a - t curve 

  • Graphs Notes | Study Physics Class 11 - NEET

⇒ Δx = area under the v - t curve

⇒ displacement = area under the v - t curve

Graphs Notes | Study Physics Class 11 - NEET
= u + change in velocity
= 5 + area of the shaded part
= 5 + 10 × 5
= 55 ms–1

 Conclusions :

(i) Both A & B starts their motion at same time t = 0 and from same point x = 0.
(ii) Both are moving away from the starting point.
(iii) A is moving with constant velocity while B starts its motion from rest and its velocity is increasing with time i.e. it has some positive acceleration.
(iv) Q At t = t1 the tangent on B's graph becomes parallel to the A's graphs 
∴ At t = t1 velocity of both A & B is same.
(v) For t < t1 velocity of A is greater than velocity of B. Therefore up to t = t1, separation between A & B increases with time.
(vi) For t > t1 velocity of B is greater than velocity of A. Therefore after t = t1 separation between A & B starts decreasing and it becomes zero at t = t2 where B overtakes A.
