Unformatted text preview: passes, and the rates of increase and decrease are not constant. *** When you have data for a motion situation, you can compute the rate of change between any two points. For example, for the data shown at the left, the rate of change from 0 seconds to 2 seconds is: Remember that, when stating the rate of change, you must always use units. **** As you solve problems, remember that you can answer questions by looking at graphs closely to see if they show a rate of change that is positive, negative, or constant. You can also find the rate from the graph by comparing the vertical and horizontal changes from one point on the graph to another. And, if you have the data that the graph represents, you can subtract values to find the rate of change. In the next topic, you will continue to learn about rate in situations that are different from walking in front of a motion detector....
