Sketch a speed-time graph for a body moving with uniformly changing speed? OR What would be the shape of a speed-time graph of a body moving with uniformly changing speed?

Difficulty: Medium

An object moving with uniformly changing speed (uniform acceleration):

Let the speed of an object be changing uniformly. In such a case speed is changing at a constant rate. Thus, its speed-time graph would be a straight line.

A straight line means that the object is moving with uniform acceleration. The slope of the line gives the magnitude of its acceleration.

Speed-time graph gives a negative slope. Thus, the object has a deceleration of 0.4ms-2.
