What do you know about graphing motion? This quiz will reveal your knowledge of the subject. Motion occurs when there is a change in the position of an object with respect to a reference starting point. The two most used graphs of motion are velocity and acceleration. In each case, time is displayed on the axis. The graph of velocity is a curve, while the graph of acceleration is linear. Start with the quiz to see what you know.
