Directions:
On this worksheet you will review some of the properties of position-time graphs when the object is moving at a "constant velocity."

Question 1
The y-axis, representing position, is scaled so that each square (vertical division) represents
14 meters.
The x-axis is scaled so that each square represents
1 second
