"Slope" is the steepness of the line on any graph.

distance = velocity x time so on the graph velocity is slope. If slope is zero (horizontal line) there is no motion

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

The slope of each point on the line on the graph is the rate of change at that point. If the graph is a straight line, then its slope is constant. If the graph is a curved line, then its slope changes.

A gradual change in the gradient (slope).

The slope of a force vs. time graph is equal to the change in momentum or the Impulse.

The rate of change of acceleration (ie. the slope of an acceleration-time graph) is the 'jerk'. It is the third derivative of displacement.

It shows the component of velocity in a radial direction. Any motion in a transverse direction is ignored.

The slope of a velocity versus time graph is the acceleration.

The slope of the distance/time graph is the speed of motion. When the slope is zero, the distance is the same value at every time. Together, they indicate that the speed is zero, and the object is sitting in the same place as time goes on.
