How is a speed graph different from an acceleration graph?

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

How does a graph showing speed differ from a graph showing acceleration?

Speed can be shown on a graph of position versus time, and acceleration can be shown on a graph of speed versus time.

On speed-time graph the measures acceleration?

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

How do you use an acceleration graph to determine speed?

You can't. However, you can find the change in speed between two points in time by finding the area under the acceleration-time graph.

In an acceleration graph showing speed versus time a straight line shows the acceleration is?

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.

On a speed time graph what measures acceleration?

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

What is indicated on a speed graph?

Acceleration is indicated on a speed/time graph.

What represents the speed versus time graph of acceleration?

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

How do you find speed when acceleration and time have given?

Acceleration = Change in Speed divided by Time over which the change takes place. If acceleration is constant then Acc = [Final Speed - Initial speed] / Time If not, Acc = gradient of Speed-Time graph.

Is The slope on a position-time graph is representative of the acceleration of the object?

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

What shows acceleration an a speed time graph?

The slope is the acceleration. Acceleration is the time derivative of velocity.

What does slope describe on a speed vs time graph?

Slope of speed vs time graph = acceleration.

Speed time graph?

A speed vs. time graph could also be called a graph of acceleration. This graph will have a constant slope if the increase in speed is constant. It can also form a curved line if there is increasing or decreasing acceleration.

Is acceleration the slope of a line on a distance time graph?

No. The slope of the distance-time graph is the change in distance per unit of time - otherwise known as speed. Acceleration is the slope of the speed time graph.

Explain how to graphycally find acceleration from Speed vs Time graph?

simply put the acceleration is the slope of the speed vs time graphTheory Partthink of it this way. the unit for speed is meters per second or m/sthe unit for acceleration is meters per second per second or m/s2so essentially if speed is the change in position per change in time, acceleration is the change in speed per change in time.Practical Partnow for the actual answer. look at the slope of your speed vs time graph at any time. that slope is the acceleration at that time. If you find the slope between two points on your graph, that gives you the average acceleration over that interval of time.

Does the slope of the line on a speed time graph tells the speed?

No. The slope on a speed vs time graph tells the acceleration.

In a graph speed versus time what is the meaning of the slope?

The slope of the speed-vs-time graph is the magnitude of acceleration.

What information can be learned from a position time graph and a speed time graph?

A position time graph can show you velocity. As time changes, so does position, and the velocity of the object can be determined. For a speed time graph, you can derive acceleration. As time changes, so does velocity, and the acceleration of the object can be determined.If you are plotting velocity (speed) versus time, the slope is the acceleration.

What does a speed time graph show?

The acceleration of an object.

How do you use a graph to average calculate speed?

It depends on what the graph is: displacement-time, or speed-time or acceleration-time or something else.

How is speed and acceleration represented on a graph?

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.

What is the equatoin for acceleration?

the slope of a speed-time graph is acceleration this slope is change in speed divided by change in time *Twinky~

Can acceleration be found using a speed-time graph?

yes acceleration is the slope in a speed vs. time grapg

What information does the slope of a speed time graph provide?

The slope of a speed/time graph at any point is the acceleration at that instant.
