Question: 376

4. In which of the following position-versus-time graphs does the object in motion have a constant negative acceleration?

  • A.
  • B.
  • C.
  • D.

Correct Answer: D

Explanation:

D

The position-versus-time graphs depicted in (A) and (B) are linear, indicating constant velocity and zero acceleration. Eliminate (A) and (B). The position-versus-time graph in (C) has a negative velocity but has a positive acceleration. Eliminate (C). The position-versus-time graph in (D) has a negative velocity and a negative acceleration. Choice (D) is correct.
