Question:

Draw the velocity-time graph from the following data:

Time (in hours): 7:00 8:00 9:00 10:00 11:00 12:00 13:00 14:00
Speed (in km/hr): 30 45 60 50 70 50 40 45

Solution:

Here, time is an independent variable and speed is a dependent variable. So, we take time on the x-axis and speed on the y-axis.

Let us choose the following scale:

On x-axis: 2 big division = 1 hour

On y-axis: 1 big division = 10 km/hr

Let us assume that on the x-axis, the coordinate of origin (O) is 7:00.

So, the coordinates of O are (7:00,0).

Now, let us plot (7:00,30), (8:00,45), (9:00,60), (10:00,50), (11:00,70), (12:00,50), (13:00,40), (14:00,45). These points are joined to get the graph representing the given information as shown in the figure below.​
