Understanding and Walking Position as a function of Time Graphs

By Flipping Physics, 05/21/2014
In this lesson we derive that the slope of a position versus time graph is velocity. We also walk through several position as a function of time graphs to understand what they mean.

Content Times:
0:34 Position as a function of Time
1:04 Defining Slope
3:04 The Slope of a Position as a function of Time Graph is Velocity
3:43 Defining Position Locations on the Graph
4:37 1st Graph
6:25 2nd Graph
7:25 3rd Graph
9:18 4th Graph
