Is the distance-time graph for acceleration always a straight line?

-- If the distance-time graph is a straight line, then the magnitude of acceleration is zero. -- If the magnitude of acceleration is not zero, then the distance-time graph is curved.


A straight line on a distance time graph represents what type of speed?

A straight line on a distance/time graph means that the speed is constant. In every unit of time the distance increases by the same amount.


What is the distance-time graph for constant speed?

straight line

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

What is distance -time graph for constant speed?

a sloped straight line


If a graph of distance versus time is a straight line the graph shows what relationship?

it is a positive relationship


When the motion of an object is shown by a straight line on a distance versus time graph with distance on the y-axis what will the slope of the line be?

The slope of a line or a distance-vs-time graph will represent the speed of the object.


A distance-time graph of constant speed looks like this?

The graph is a straight line. Its slope is the speed.


What does it mean when a distance-time graph is straight line?

It means that the object in question is moving at a constant speed.If the graph is a straight horizontal line, then the speed is zero.


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.


What will you say about motion of body if distance time graph is straight line having constant angel with time axis?

If the distance/time graph is a straight line that makes a constant angel with the time axis, then the body's speed is constant, and is equal to the slope of the straight line (tangent of the constant angel).
