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.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

How does a graph showing speed differ from a graph showing acceleration?

Speed can be shown on a graph of position versus time, and acceleration can be shown on a graph of speed versus time.

What represents the speed versus time graph of acceleration?

Any graph that isn't a straight horizontal line is a graph of speed with 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.

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.

What shape do you expect for a graph showing the position of a motorcycle versus time if the motorcycle is speeding up with a constant acceleration?

The position versus time graph is parabolic.

How does the speed versus time graph look for an object with constant acceleration?

A straight line.

How can a position-time graph show if an object has constant acceleration?

By showing a straight line.

How is a graph showing speed different from a graph showing acceleration?

Acceleration is how fast you get up to speed.

What would be the shape of a speed versus time graph for an object in free fall?

The graph is a straight line whose slope is the acceleration of gravity.

Appearance of the grahp of acceleration-versus-time for a freely falling object?

Acceleration versus time is constant, equal to the acceleration of gravity.The graph is a straight horizontal line, at the height of [ Y=9.8 ] (metric), or [ Y=32.2 ] (english).

How is an object moving if a slanted straight line on a speed versus time graph represents its motion?

A straight slanted slope on a velocity-time graph indicates that the object is moving with a constant acceleration.

Is acceleration the slope of the velocitys vs the time graph?

Yes, acceleration is the slope of a velocity versus time graph.
