Distance-time graph:

            It is useful to represent the motion of objects using graphs. The terms distance and displacement are used interchangeably when the motion is in a straight line. Similarly, if the motion is in a straight line then speed and velocity are also used interchangeably


In a distance-time graph, time is taken along the horizontal axis while the vertical axis shows the distance covered by the object.
