The nature of uniform motion for a velocity-time graph is graphed as a horizontal straight line.

Uniform motion is unaffected by acceleration (line does not curve), which means that it goes up or down in a constant rate on a position-time graph.

Velocity= the slope of a position-time graph.

So, if the motion is constant on a position-time graph then the velocity of the uniform motion is constant on a velocity-time graph.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

What is the nature of the distance-timegraphs for uniform and non-uniform motion of an object?

-- The distance/time graph for an object in uniform motion is a straight line,which may be sloped.-- The distance/time graph for an object in non-uniform motion may be a linethat isn't straight. But even if the graph is a straight line, that's not enoughto guarantee that the object's motion is uniform ... the distance/time graphreveals the object's speed, but not the direction of its motion.

How is uniform motion represented on a position-time graph?

Uniform motion is represented by a straight line.

What is the nature of the distance time graphs for uniform and non uniform motion of an object?

"Uniform motion" means constant velocity (constant speed in a straight line). Its distance/time graph is a straight line, with any finite slope. "Non-uniform motion" means motion with changing velocity ... speed or direction ... that is, accelerated motion. If the speed is changing, then the distance/time graph must always be rising but can't be a straight line. If the direction is changing but the speed is constant, then the distance/time graph is still a straight line. Distance/time graphs can show speed, but they can't completely display velocity.

What does the displacement vs time graph look like?

It depends on the motion of an object i.e. whether a body is executing uniform or non uniform motion.

What are the nature of the distance-time graphs for uniform and non-unifrm motion of an object?

A distance-time graph for an object moving at a constant velocity will be a straight line - the gradient of the line corresponds to the velocity. Non-uniform motion will cause the gradient of the line to change.
