On a graph of acceleration vs. time, during deceleration the line is below zero. On a graph of speed vs. time, during deceleration the line has a negative slope (sloping downward from left to right).

What does the line on a speed or time graph show?

The shape and slope of the line on a graph illustrates the qualitative and quantitative relationship between the variables plotted on the axes of the graph. Sadly, there is no such graph as a "speed or time" one.

How speed of zero would appear on a graph?

-- If the graph displays speed against time, then speed of zero is indicated wherever the graph-line touches the x-axis. -- If the graph displays distance against time, then speed of zero is indicated wherever the graph-line is horizontal. -- If the graph displays acceleration (magnitude) against time, then the graph can tell you when speed is increasing or decreasing, but it doesn't show what the actual speed is.

What is the name of the line that would show constant speed on a V-T graph?
