# Understanding uniform motion in Motion – Class 9 Science Experiment

**Chapter Name:** Motion

**Activity Name:**** **Understanding uniform motion **in **Motion

**Activity Description: **

In this experiment, we aim to understand uniform motion by analyzing the distance covered by a cyclist on a straight road over time.

The distance covered by the cyclist with respect to time is provided in a table, and we will plot a distance vs. time graph using these values.

**Required Items:**

- Table with distance and time values
- Graph paper or charting software

**Step by Step Procedure:**

- Gather the table containing distance and time values of the cyclist’s motion.
- On the graph paper or using charting software, label the x-axis as “Time” and the y-axis as “Distance.”
- Plot the data points from the table on the graph paper, where the time values are on the x-axis and the corresponding distance values on the y-axis.
- Connect the data points with a smooth line to create the distance vs. time graph.

**Experiment Observations: **

- The graph obtained will be a straight line, sloping upwards from left to right.

Note down your observation values in table format:

**Precautions:**

- Ensure accurate recording of distance and time values to avoid errors in the graph.
- Use a ruler or appropriate tools to plot the data points for a neat and precise graph.

**Lesson Learnt from Experiment:**

The distance vs. time graph for uniform motion is a straight line, indicating that the cyclist covers an equal distance in equal intervals of time.
