Question:

Which of the curves labeled A to D on the graph below could be a plot of {eq}v_x(t) {/eq}, the velocity of the object in the x direction as a function of time?

Velocity time graph:

Velocity-time graphs are used to study about the acceleration with the help of slope, as value of slope in v-t graph is numerically equal to the acceleration.

Answer and Explanation:

{eq}\text{Let initially, the object is moving with some velocity $v_o$}\\ \text{the velocity of the object gradually decreases due to negative...
