Types of Uniform Motion

UNIFORM POSITION: (Constant x)

Equations of Motion




UNIFORM VELOCITY: (Constant v)

Equations of Motion



Constant Velocity Space-Time Diagram
The Space-Time diagram for four objects undergoing constant velocities in a straight line can be observed. Constant Velocity Space-Time QT Diagram Movie (140K).


UNIFORM ACCELERATION: (Constant a)

Equations of Motion



Space-Time Diagram
The Space-Time diagram for four object undergoing different types of constant motion in a straight line: constant acceleration, constant velocity, and constant position.

Velocity-Time and Space-Time Diagram for Constant Acceleration
Both the Velocity-Time and the Space-Time diagram are generated for a single body undergoing uniform acceleration. Both the initial position and initial velocity can be varied as well as the body's acceleration.
