NOTE:If you see boxes in front of the choices, then there is more than one correct answer. If you see circles, there is only one correct answer.

• 1.
For the graph shown above, describe the displacement, the velocity, and the acceleration of the object whose velocity (v) - time (t) graph is shown. Write your answers for the time intervals (a) 0 to 5 sec (b) 5 to 12 sec (c) 12 to 14 sec and (d) 14 to 15 sec.
• 2.
Velocity is
• A.

The rate of change of distance

• B.

The rate of change of displacement

• C.

A measure of how fast or how slow an object moves, in a particular direction

• D.

The distance covered by an object times the time it took to cover that distance.

• 3.
Acceleration is
• A.

The rate of change of displacement

• B.

The rate of change of velocity

• C.

Measured in kilometers per hour

• D.

The product of distance and time

• 4.
An object moving at constant velocity has
• A.

An increasing acceleration

• B.

A decreasing acceleration

• C.

A constant, nonzero acceleration

• D.

Zero acceleration

• 5.
The graph shows the displacement (x) of an object as a function of time (t). This shows an object that
• A.

Is statonary.

• B.

Is moving at constant velocity.

• C.

Is moving at constant acceleration.

• 6.
The graph shows the velocity (v) of an object as time (t) passes by. The object is
• A.

Stationary.

• B.

Moving at constant velocity.

• C.

Moving at constant acceleration.

• 7.
The graph shows the velocity (v) of an object as a function of time (t). This represents an object
• A.

That starts from rest.

• B.

That is moving at constant velocity.

• C.

That is moving at constant acceleration.

• D.

Whose velocity is increasing at a constant rate.

• E.

Whose velocity is increasing at a changing rate.

• 8.
The graph shows how the acceleration (a) of an object behaves as a function of time (t). this represents an object
• A.

That is stationary.

• B.

That is moving at constant velocity.

• C.

That has zero acceleration.

• 9.
From the given graph- if x represents displacement and t represents time, then the slope of the graph represents
• A.

The velocity at any time.

• B.

The acceleration at any time.

• C.

The velocity only at the start of the motion.

• D.

The velocity right before the end of the motion.

• 10.
For the object whose graph is shown, check all the information below that is correct.
• A.

The object started from rest.

• B.

The object is at rest from t=60 to t=90 seconds.

• C.

The object is slowing down from t=50 to t=60 seconds.

• D.

The object changed direction only at the times at t=50 and t=90 seconds.

• E.

The object had an acceleration at t=50 seconds.

• F.

The object comes back to where it started at the end of 110 seconds.

• 11.
For the graph shown, check all boxes that contain correct information.
• A.

It is moving at constant velocity from A to B.

• B.

It is accelerating from B to C.

• C.

It is at rest from C to D.

• D.

It is moving away from its starting point from A through D, and is coming back to its starting point from D to E.

• E.

The magnitude of the velocity is larger from B to C, compared to the velocity from D to E.
