-- If the distance-time graph is a straight line, then the magnitude of acceleration is zero. -- If the magnitude of acceleration is not zero, then the distance-time graph is curved.

A distance vs time squared graph shows shows the relationship between distance and time during an acceleration. An example of an acceleration value would be 3.4 m/s^2. The time is always squared in acceleration therefore the graph can show the rate of which an object is moving

No. The slope of the distance-time graph is the change in distance per unit of time - otherwise known as speed. Acceleration is the slope of the speed time graph.

acceleration

Distance vs. Time

A speed graph measures the distance devided over time. Acceleration graph measures the change in speed over time.

Indirectly, yes. If the graph is a straight line there is no acceleration, if the graph is not linear there is acceleration.

no because it is possible the object moving make go backwards so the the line will go into the negatives on the graph

The answer depends on whether the graph is that of speed v time or distance v time.

Acceleration has a dimensionality of length/time^2, so if you were measuring the distance in meters and the time in seconds, the acceleration would be m/s^2.
