it stays in motion at the same speed and irection

IF the curve got is a straight line parallel to time axis then the motion is steady. ie with uniform velocity. If it is a straight line inclined with the time axis then it is uniformly accelerated. So it is also a steady state with uniform acceleration.

The nature of uniform motion for a velocity-time graph is graphed as a horizontal straight line. Uniform motion is unaffected by acceleration (line does not curve), which means that it goes up or down in a constant rate on a position-time graph. Velocity= the slope of a position-time graph. So, if the motion is constant on a position-time graph then the velocity of the uniform motion is constant on a velocity-time graph. Lauren "Physics above all!"

Either it is going in a straight line at a constant velocity or it is standing still (constant velocity of 0).

constant acceleration, constant because it is a straight line, and acceleration because the line is inclined (there is change in velocity)

An upward sloping straight line indicates that the object being studied is moving away from the origin and that the component of its velocity in the radial direction is a constant. A downward sloping line indicates it is moving towards the origin. However, neither line says anything about the transverse component of its motion.

Linear motion is a motion in a straight line but velocity can travel in any direction the equation for linear motion is and velocity is the rate of change of positions

It is motion in a straight line at a constant velocity.

Velocity time reletion

No. An unbalanced force causes motion, but balanced forces keep a body in motion in a straight line at constant velocity, or at rest at constant 0 velocity.

Motion with uniform velocity. * * * * * There is absolutely no reason for the velocity - or even speed - to remain constant. It is linear motion an that is all that there is to it.

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).

No. The direction keeps changing. Constant velocity means constant speed in a straight line.

Velocity is proportional to elapsed time when motion is in a straight line and acceleration is constant.

Motion implies momentum, which implies velocity. Linear implies a straight line. Accelerating implies changing velocity. And uniform implies constancy. So, when an object moves in a straight line and accelerates at a constant rate, you have uniformly accelerating linear motion.

In Simple motion, there is no force being applied. The moving object moves in a straight line with constant velocity. In acceleration, there is a force applied. The object's velocity is changing. The first derivative of acceleration is velocity. The first derivative of velocity is distance. (Derivative is a calculus thing.)
