You usually want to use a bar graph. If you have a year of data you probably want to use a line graph.

it depends on what the graph is. if it is a distance vs time graph, the line will be a line with the slope being the speed/total time if it is a speed vs. time graph, the line will be horizontal at y=the speed if it is an acceleration vs time graph, the line will be horizontal at y=0

The slope is zero. Slope is rise over run, the rise is zero, so zero divided by anything is zero.

linear?

A motion described as a changing, positive velocity results in a sloped line when plotted as a velocity-time graph. If the acceleration is zero, then the slope is zero (i.e., a horizontal line). If the acceleration is positive, then the slope is positive (i.e., an upward sloping line). If the acceleration is negative, then the slope is negative (i.e., a downward sloping line).

The slope of a position/time graph is the speed (magnitude of velocity).If the graph's slope is changing, that means the speed is changing, andthat would be accelerated motion.
