Speed is a continuous variable since it can take on an infinite set of values.

just take the speed by hours such as 60 miles per hour and divide it by 60 (the minutes in an hour) and you will get 1 mile per minute

true

The speed with which you undertake a journey and the time that it takes.

Position or speed

Acceleration is how fast you get up to speed.

Yes. One shows speed and the other shows acceleration. The variables are usually plotted against time but that need not be the case. They could be plotted against displacement, for example.

A graph that shows speed versus time is not an acceleration graph.The slope of the graph at any point is the acceleration at that time.A straight line shows that the acceleration is constant.

A speed graph measures the distance devided over time. Acceleration graph measures the change in speed over time.

On speed-time graph can measure acceleration by getting the slope.

Any graph that isn't a straight horizontal line is a graph of speed with acceleration.

Acceleration is indicated on a speed/time graph.

Acceleration=change in y graph/change in x graph

Acceleration is negative.

The slope at each point on a speed/time graph is themagnitude of acceleration at that point in time.

On a speed versus time graph, acceleration is represented by the line on the graph. If acceleration is constant, the line cuts through equally between the axis and starts from the zero point.

No. Slope of position/time graph is speed, or magnitude of velocity.Slope of speed/time graph is magnitude of acceleration.
