Best Answer

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).

Q: What will the acceleration-time graph show if the speed is decelerating?

speed graph

The acceleration of an object.

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

it will never be a vertical line as the slope is velocity and that would be infinite speed

It depends what you wish to 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.

-- 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.

On a V-t graph, constant speed is shown as a horizontal line.

A distance time graph would show the distance traveled.

If the line formed by the graph is straight, the speed is constant. A horizontal line would show the object as stationary.
