# Physics Tutorial 3.9 - Position v's Time and Distance v's Time Graph

There are 4 lessons in this physics tutorial covering Position v's Time and Distance v's Time Graph. The tutorial starts with an introduction to Position v's Time and Distance v's Time Graph and is then followed with a list of the separate lessons, the tutorial is designed to be read in order but you can skip to a specific lesson or return to recover a specific physics lesson as required to build your physics knowledge of Position v's Time and Distance v's Time Graph. you can access all the lessons from this tutorial below.

In this Physics tutorial, you will learn:

• How to interpret a position vs time graph in uniform motion?
• The same for uniformly accelerated (decelerated) motion
• To understand the difference between position vs time and distance vs time graph
• How to convert the abovementioned graphs from one type into the other
• Understand the concept of "gradient" in a position vs time graph and what it represents
• Confirm the equations of motion through the position vs time graph

## Introduction

In the Physics tutorial: "Speed and Velocity in One Direction" we discussed about the procedure of finding the instantaneous speed and instantaneous velocity and we saw that position vs time graphs or distance vs time graphs were very helpful in this regard.

Now, we will discuss more in detail this method by extending the explanation in other aspects as well. Another advantage of motion graphs in general, is that when dealing with them, the veracity of the equations of motion is confirmed.
