NCERT Solutions for Class 9 Science Chapter 8
Q1: Explain the distance-time graph and velocity-time graph.
A1: Distance-Time Graph
Distance-Time graphs show the change in position of an object with respect to time.
Linear variation = uniform motion & non-linear variations imply non- uniform motion.
The slope gives us speed.
Velocity-Time graphs show the change in velocity with respect to time.
Slope gives acceleration.
The area under the curve gives the displacement.
Line parallel to the x-axis implies constant velocity.

Q3: What is the difference between speed and velocity?
A3: The major difference between speed and velocity are mentioned below:
Velocity - refers to the displacement of a given object over a time interval. The velocity has a specific direction. Velocity can hold a negative value as well. The formula for velocity is given by - Velocity = displacement/time.
Speed - Refers to the distance moved or travelled by an object over a time interval. Speed does not have any direction. Most importantly, speed cannot hold a negative value. The formula for speed is given by - Speed = distance/time.
Q4: Give a few examples of action and Newtons’ third law of motion.
A4: Newton’s third law states that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Some example is as mentioned below:
Swimming - A swimmer while swimming pushes the water backwards by their hands. In return the water pushes the swimmer forwards, thus allowing him to go forward during swimming.
Walking - During walking, a person will push the ground in a backward direction. The ground in return pushes the person in the forward direction, thereby making him/her walk.
Flying - A bird in the process of flying pushes the air downwards with the aid of its wings. In return, the air pushes the bird upwards.
Sleeping - While a person is sleeping on a bed, his weight is opposed by a reaction force from the bed. This results in both the forces cancel each other out, and the person enjoys the equilibrium position.
