Re-tardation will, ofcourse, take place, therate of which may beascertained from thechart by reference tothe train resistance speed curve in the same manner that theaccelerations were found from the net tractive speed curveat first. In the chart are shown only two-time increment lines inorder to make it as simple for presentation as possible.In practice, however, a number of these lines are used,they can generally be made for 3, 5, 10, 20 and even 40second increments.
