About This Quiz & Worksheet

We've made it easy to check your understanding of the difference between force vs. distance and force vs. time graphs with our quiz and worksheet. These multiple-choice questions ask you to analyze the area from an example graph and identify what the area under a force-time graph tells you.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

Use this quiz to see how well you know:

  • What the slope of a graph tells you in a sample scenario
  • How to analyze the area of a graph
  • What the area under a force-time graph tells you
  • How to analyze the slope of a distance-time graph
  • What the general shape of a distance-time graph for simple harmonic motion is

Skills Practiced

  • Reading comprehension - ensure that you draw the most important information from the related lesson on force vs. time and force vs. distance graphs
  • Knowledge application - use your knowledge to answer questions about analyzing the slope of a time-distance graph
  • Interpreting information - verify that you can read information regarding the general shape of a distance-time graph for simple harmonic motion and interpret it correctly
