2 7. What is the velocity of the object in question 6 above? -1 displcement 4.0 Average velocity = 2.0 ms time 2.0 m s = = c. 2.0 m.s -1 8. What is the direction of motion of the object in question 6 above? Since the velocity is positive, the object is moving to the right. d. right 9. Which of the following statements is NOT true of velocity? d. Velocity is the same as speed 10. The position function of a moving object is given by x = -5t + 10. which of the following is true about the velocity of this moving object? Velocity is the rate of change of the position function. A graph of position against time will be a straight line and its slope will be -5, the uniform velocity. c. The velocity remains a constant 11. What is the direction of motion of the object in question 10? Since the velocity is negative in the x-direction, the object is moving to the left. d. left 12. What is the speed of the object in question 10? Speed is the magnitude of the velocity which is 5 ms -1 . b. 5 m.s -1
3 13. Which of the following is NOT true for an object that moves with uniform velocity? An object that moves with uniform velocity has no acceleration and so statement d is not correct. d. Its acceleration is also a constant 14. Which of the following is true of an object that travels with uniform acceleration? b. A graph of its velocity against time will be a straight line. 15. Which of the following is the correct graph of displacement against time for uniformly accelerating object? For a uniformly accelerating object the graph of position against time will be concave up. displacement time (a) 16. Which of the following is the graph of velocity against time for an object moving with uniform acceleration? Uniform acceleration is the slope of velocity-time graph. (b) velocity time

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
