You can show the motion of an object on a line graph in which you plot distance versus time.

when you graph the motion of an object

-- The distance/time graph for an object in uniform motion is a straight line,which may be sloped.-- The distance/time graph for an object in non-uniform motion may be a linethat isn't straight. But even if the graph is a straight line, that's not enoughto guarantee that the object's motion is uniform ... the distance/time graphreveals the object's speed, but not the direction of its motion.

A distance time graph would show the distance traveled.

you can show motion by distance against time

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

A distance-time graph displays motion of any object over time.

the object is not moving

Speed.

acceleration.

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.

no motion
