# Understanding uniform motion in Motion – Class 9 Science Experiment

## 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:

1. Table with distance and time values
2. Graph paper or charting software

### Step by Step Procedure:

1. Gather the table containing distance and time values of the cyclist’s motion.
2. On the graph paper or using charting software, label the x-axis as “Time” and the y-axis as “Distance.”
3. 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.
4. Connect the data points with a smooth line to create the distance vs. time graph.

### Experiment Observations:

1. 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.
