x begins from a positive value and ends at x = 0.
The change in x from one dot to the other is constant, implying a constant horizontal velocity.
For the motion diagram given (Figure 1), sketch the shape of a possible graph for the x position versus time, x(t). Use the indicated coordinate system. One unit of time elapses between consecutive dots in the motion diagram.
