Does a horizontal line on a distance-time graph means the object is moving at a constant speed?

A horizontal line on a distance-time graph means the object is at rest.


If the slope of a line on a distance time graph is 1 the speed of the object plotted is?

constant


On a graph of distance versus time what is constant speed shown by?

If the line formed by the graph is straight, the speed is constant. A horizontal line would show the object as stationary.


What does a stright diagonal line on a distance time graph mean?

It means that the speed of the object is constant.


If the slope of a line on a distance-time graph is 1 what is the speed of the object being plotted?

Constant


How does the distance versus time graph look for an object that is stopped?

You can use the steepness, or slope, of a line in a distance-time graph to determine the speed of an object if speed is constant. The slope of the line is calculated by dividing the change in distance by the change in time for that time interval.


Which shape fits a distance vs time graph of an object moving at constant non-zero speed?

A straight line with a constant slope


A horizontal line on a distance time graph represents?

It represents that the object is remaining at a fixed distance. Typically that means it is not moving.


If the slope of a line on a distance and time graph is 1 the speed of the object being plotted is what?

It is 1 unit of distance per 1 unit of time.


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

Yes. The slope, or rate, is constant. The rate being represented is speed. If the slope is a negative constant, the object is losing distance (going towards) from the orgin at at a constant speed.


How can you determine the speed of an object that has constant motion if you have a distance vs time graph of the motion?

If constant motion means constant velocity then, total distance / total time = avg velocity => avg speed constant velocity => avg velocity = velocity


The graph of distance versus time for an object moving at a constant speed is a curve?

No, it is a straight line passing through the origin.
