Distance moved by a freely falling body related to time of fall

Distance moved by a freely falling body related to time of fall

The value of the constant here is equal to t g and we can best illustrate the relationship between distance fallen and time taken by plotting a graph of x against t2. We should expect to obtain a straight line through the origin, the gradient of which is ~ (Fig. 3.8). Hence,

Distance moved by a freely falling body related to time of fall
Distance moved by a freely falling body related to time of fall
Distance moved by a freely falling body related to time of fall
Distance moved by a freely falling body related to time of fall

Note that this method of illustrating the relationship applies not only to falling
bodies but also to any body which is moving with a uniform acceleration.
