You can't determine velocity from that graph, because the graph tells you

nothing about the direction of the motion. But you can determine the speed.

The speed at any moment is the slope of a line that's tangent to the graph

at that moment.

How do you determine velocity using accelaration vs time graph?

The change in velocity is the area under the graph from t1 to t2. If the initial velocity is zero, the velocity at time, tf, is the area from t = 0 to tf.

How do you determine mass using momentum and velocity?

Momentum = (mass) times (velocity)mass = (Momentum) divided by (velocity)

How do you find acceleration using mass and velocity?

Acceleration is change in velocity per unit time(derivative of velocity with respect to time). If you have a graph or chart of velocity values vs time, then you can calculate (change in velocity) / (change in time). This is the slope of the graph at a specific point in time.Mass, along with acceleration determines force.

Sketch a distance-time graph for a body starting from rest how will you determine the speed of a body from this graph?

It is not possible to sketch anything using this browser. The speed of a body cannot be determined from a distance-time graph. The slope of the graph is a measure of the radial velocity - that is the speed directly towards or directly away from the starting point. However, there is absolutely no information of any motion in a transverse direction. Since motion in this direction cannot be assumed to be 0, the distance-time graph cannot be used to determine speed.

How do you calculate velocity based on distance and time?

average velocity is distance/time (metres per second) precise velocity can be calculated from a maths expression such as d = t^2 where velocity is slope of graph at any point , using differential calculus

Is displacement the slope of a velocity vs time graph?

Displacement can be found by the area underneath the line of a velocity vs. time graph. This area can be found by using a definite integral if you know calculus, or if not it can be found simply by counting squares, or finding the area of triangles etc. Hope it helped :)

Can you determine whether the inverse of a function is a function by using vertical line test?

Not quite. You can use a vertical line test on the graph of the inverse mapping, OR you can use a horizontal line test on the original graph. The horizontal line test is used in the same way.
