The distance time graph for constant speed is a what line?

Diagonal line


What is an example of a zero slope?

a stright line going acrossed the graph lines. :)


Does a straight diagonal line on a distance versus time graph indicate constant speed?

Yes. Speed is the rate at which distance changes over time. In calculus terms v = dx/dt, or the slope of the distance vs. time graph. If the slope of the distance vs. time graph is a straight line, the speed is constant.


If a graph shows distance on the vertical axis and time on the horizontal axis and the speed is steadily increasing Will it be a straight diagonal line?

Well, no. If the graph is a straight diagonal line, then the DISTANCE is steadily increasing, not the speed. This would translate into a constant speed. If the speed is steadily increasing, the object would travel more distance per unit time as we move along the horizontal axis. Meaning, the graph would curve upward.


What does the diagonal line represent in a line graph?

The diagonal lines show how the values change over time, also known as a trend


What does an upward sloping diagonal line mean in position vs time graph?

It means that either the distance is measured from the starting-line and the object is moving forward, or else the distance is measured from the finish-line and the object is moving backwards, because the distance is growing as time goes on. If the upward sloping diagonal line is straight, it means the speed is constant. (not velocity)


What does an downward sloping diagonal line mean in position vs time graph?

It means that either the distance is measured from the finish-line, or else the object is moving backwards, because the distance is shrinking as time goes on.


Is it true that a straight diagonal line on a distance versus time graph indicates constant speed?

The answer is TRUE because it is a straight line as the graph shows below. http://www.batesville.k12.in.us/physics/apphynet/Measurement/Images/d_vs_t2_graph.gif


Does a line on a graph become less steep when the distance increases?

No. The distance of a line on a graph will not affect how steep it is. Distance does not affect slope.


Why is the distance time graph a straight line for?

A straight line on a distance - time graph represents a "constant velocity".


Is it true or false that a straight diagonal line on a distance-versus-time graph indicates constant speed?

The answer is TRUE because it is a straight line as the graph shows below. http://www.batesville.k12.in.us/physics/apphynet/Measurement/Images/d_vs_t2_graph.gif
