Best Answer

With distance on the x axis and time on the y axis a steep line would indicate a short distance traveled over a long period of time, depending on the scale of the graph.

Why is it not possible for any part of the distance-time graph of a body to be a straight-line segment parallel to the distance axis?

BecAuse that would mean it is going an infinite speed. The slope of a distance time graph is the objects velocity or speed. If there is a line parallel to the distance axis, there is a vertical line. The slope of a vertical line is infinite. It is not possible to go an infinite speed.

Does slope mean distance on a graph?

No. It means the distance the graph line rises or drops when you move one unit to the righton the horizontal axis.If you're riding along the graph line from left to right in a little tiny car the size of a pinhead,the slope is the description of riding up-hill and down-hill on the line, and how steeply.
