### In an acceleration graph showing speed versus time a straight line shows the acceleration is?

A graph that shows speed versus time is not an acceleration graph.The slope of the graph at any point is the acceleration at that time.A straight line shows that the acceleration is constant.

### How can you use the graph of velocity versus time to estimate the acceleration of the ball?

If the graph is a straight line, then the slope of the line is the average acceleration of the ball.

### How is speed and acceleration represented on a graph?

On a speed versus time graph, acceleration is represented by the line on the graph. If acceleration is constant, the line cuts through equally between the axis and starts from the zero point.

### A distance time graph for acceleration is always a?

a horizontal line :)

Acceleration.

### What is the meaning of each of the following features of a velocity-time graph the slope of the line?

The slope of a line on a velocity-time graph is acceleration.

### Accelerating can be seen on a distance versus time graph true or false?

Indirectly, yes. If the graph is a straight line there is no acceleration, if the graph is not linear there is acceleration.

### Is acceleration the slope of a line on a distance time graph?

No. The slope of the distance-time graph is the change in distance per unit of time - otherwise known as speed. Acceleration is the slope of the speed time graph.

### How would a graph of negative and positive acceleration differ?

This depends on what the graph represents. If it is a graph of velocity on the vertical and time on the horizontal, then if acceleration is at a constant rate, the graph will be a straight line with positive slope (pointing 'up'). If acceleration stops, then the graph will be a horizontal line (zero acceleration or deceleration). If it is deceleration (negative acceleration), then the graph will have negative slope (pointing down).

### The speed of a car moving with constant speed equals the slope of the line representing the cars motion on a distance time graph?

acceleration A motion such as the one above further illustrates the important principle: the slope of the line on a velocity-time graph is equal to the acceleration of the object. This principle can be used for all velocity time to determine the numerical value of the acceleration.

### What will the acceleration-time graph show if the speed is decelerating?

On a graph of acceleration vs. time, during deceleration the line is below zero. On a graph of speed vs. time, during deceleration the line has a negative slope (sloping downward from left to right).
