Steep slope on a distance/time graph indicates high speed.
the slope show the velocity of the object which show its direction and magnitude.
The slope of a distance versus time graph provides the instantaneous speed of an object. If data from this graph is then used to construct a speed versus time graph, the slope of that graph would provide the instantaneous acceleration.
The slope of the graph at any point is the object's speed at that time. (Not velocity.)
depends what graph....
Note that the graph can't show velocity, only speed. The slope of the graph is the magnitude of acceleration. The area under the graph is distance covered.
The slope of the line would decrease.
i need a graph of some sort for a essay
The slope of [distance vs. time] is [speed]. If the slope is constant, then the speed is constant,meaning the magnitude of acceleration is zero.(The direction of velocity might still be changing though, which wouldn't show up on the graph.)
Distance-time graph will show a straight line with a positive slope. Speed-time graph will show a horizontal line at the uniform speed. Acceleration-time graph will show a horizontal line at a = 0.
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.
