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 Can you tell from a velocity-time graph that the velocity is constant?

The velocity will be constant when it remains parallel to the time scale.


What one thing does a velocity-time graph not tell you about your object that a position-time graph does?

Distance covered at a given time.


Can you tell from a velocity-time graph whether an object is stationary?

If the curve is horizontal, then the speed is constant. If that horizontal graph lies on the x-axis, then the constant speed is zero, and the object is stationary.


Why does the y-value of the velocity vs. time graph stay constant?

You're looking at one specific velocity/time graph that we can't see. From your description, we can tell that the object whose motion is described by that graph is moving at a constant rate of speed ... which is exactly what you just said while looking at the graph.


What does a curved line on a distance versus time graph tell you?

It tells you that the velocity of the body is not constant. There is acceleration or deceleration.


Does a velocity graph tell you where to start?

No. It will tell you WHEN but not where.


When velocity is changing what is happening to the slope on a position versus time graph?

The slope of the position/time graph is the magnitude of velocity, i.e. speed.It doesn't tell you anything about the direction of velocity. If the direction ofvelocity is changing, the slope of the graph doesn't necessarily change.If the magnitude of velocity (speed) changes, then the slope of the graph changes.If speeding up, the slope of the graph increases, and the graph curves upward.If slowing down, the slope of the graph decreases, and the graph curves downward.


What do x-t graphs look like for constant velocity?

The x-t graph can't tell you anything about direction, so you can only make observations regarding speed, not velocity. For constant speed, the x-t graph is a straight line. The slope of the line is numerically equal to the constant speed.


How can I tell when two objects have the same velocity on a position graph?

If the position is graphed vs time, then the slope (rate of change of position with respect to time) will be the same (parallel).


How Can you tell from a velocity vs time graph that a moving object has changed direction?

velocity is nothing but speed of a body in the given direction. suppose if body is moving with constant velocity then VT graph will be parallel to the X -axis, if not then the VT graph is not parallel to the X-axis it means then object is moving with different velocity or it has its dierection or both velocity and aswell as direction.


How can you tell from a graph that speed increases?

If the graph of position vs. time is curved upward to the right, then speed (velocity) is increasing. Refer to the related link for more information.


If a graph shows time on the horizonal axis and speed on the vertical axis a straight horizontal line across the graph would indicate?

The straight horizontal line would indicate constant speed.(NOT constant velocity. The velocity could very well be changing, but the graphdoesn't tell you anything about the direction of the motion, only that the speedis constant.)
