acceleration

The constant acceleration

Equal to the acceleration of the object that is moving through distance in time. * * * * * No. The slope of the distance-time graph is the change in distance per unit of time - otherwise known as speed.

The slope of this graph gives the speed.

The slope of a velocity-time graph is acceleration. If it is a straight line, then it is the average acceleration. Force is not part of the velocity-time graph.

distance

The slope of a line on a velocity-time graph is acceleration.

-- 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.

The slope (technically, the slope of the tangent at each point) of a distance-time graph gives the instantaneous velocity. Therefore, if the graph has a constant slope - i.e. it is a straight line - then that indicates a constant velocity (zero acceleration).

Acceleration.

The slope of a line on a distance-time graph represents the speed or velocity. The steeper the line is and the greater the slope of the line is, the faster the object is moving.

If the graph is a straight line, then the slope of the line is the average acceleration of the ball.
