### What do distance time graphs show?

Distance time graph shows the distance an object has traveled with respect to time. Time is plotted on the horizontal axis and distance is plotted on the vertical axis. The slope of the graph at any particular point in time will be equal to the instantaneous velocity at that point in time.

### What is the difference between a picture graph and a bar graph?

a picture graph uses pictures to show the point and bar graph use bar lines to show the point.

### What does a distance time graph show?

A distance-time graph shows the movement of an object with respect to time. The average slope between any two points on the graph is equal to the average velocity of the object between those two points. The instantaneous slope (or derivative) at a point on the graph is equal to the instantaneous velocity of the object at that point.

### What does a distance versus time graph never show?

There are many things the graph does not show. It does not show my shoe size, for example.

### What does a speed time graph indicate about an object's motion?

A distance time graph would show the distance traveled.

### What is the nature of distance time graph for uniform motion of an object?

the distance time graph will show a linear or a straight line

### What is the nature of the distance time graph for uniform motion of an object?

the distance time graph will show a linear or a straight line

### Which variables show the motion of an object on a line graph?

If the motion of the object in in n-dimensional space, then an n+1 dimensional graph, in which one axis shows the time and the remaining n dimensions are the coordinates of the object at that point in time. The wrong answer is a distance-time graph, since that does not show any radial motion. An object going round in a circle around the origin is at a constant distance and so a distance-time graph would show no motion which is certainly not true.

### What does a horizontal slope of a distance versus time graph indicate about an objects motion?

It is a measure of speed of the object, but only in the radial direction: that is, towards or away from the point from which distance is measured. The object could be going around that point in circular motion and the graph would show absolutely nothing.

### What motion does a steep slope on a distance time graph show?

Steep slope on a distance/time graph indicates high speed.

### You can show the motion of an object on a line graph in which you plot distance against?

you can show motion by distance against time

### How do you use a graph to show someone's motion?

By using the distance, speed, and acceleration, to show on the graph the constant speed of each car
