### What feature of a distance time graph represent speed?

The gradient (slope) of the line on the graph.

### What does the slope of a time vs distance graph equal?

The slope of a time vs distance graph represents the speed or velocity of an object. It is calculated as the change in distance divided by the change in time. A steeper slope indicates a greater speed.

### What does the slope of distance-versus-time graph represent physically?

instantaneous magnitude of velocity

### What does a slope of a time graph represent?

The slope of a velocity-time graph represents acceleration.

### In a distance-time graph a slope of zero or a horizontal line represent?

A slope of zero or a horizontal line on a distance-time graph represents an object at rest, not moving. This indicates that the object is not changing its position over time.

### What does the slope of the curve on a distance v time graph represent?

The slope of the curve at each point on thegraph is the speed at that point in time. (Not velocity.)

### 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.

### What does slope of a speed time graph represent?

The slope of a velocity-time graph represents acceleration.

### What motion does a steep slope on a distance time graph show?

Steep slope on a distance/time graph indicates high speed.

### What does the slope of a linen on a distance - time graph represent?

The speed. Also, if a positive slope represents the speed in one direction, the negative slope is the speed in the opposite direction.
