exists and is an alternate of .

This depends on what the graph represents. If it is a graph of velocity on the vertical and time on the horizontal, then if acceleration is at a constant rate, the graph will be a straight line with positive slope (pointing 'up'). If acceleration stops, then the graph will be a horizontal line (zero acceleration or deceleration). If it is deceleration (negative acceleration), then the graph will have negative slope (pointing down).

What is a positive or negative relationship on a graph?

If a function Y is dependent on X. if X increases in value then Y also increases then we call this a positive relationship. If X increases in value then Y decreases or vice ve

How are negative and positive acceleration different?

Acceleration is a vector. It has both a magnitude and a direction. So you first have to choose which direction is positive. Lets say we choose "left" as negative and "right" a

What is the difference between negative acceleration and positive acceleration?

You arbitrarily define a direction to be positive and the direction opposite to it is then negative. Measurements in the first direction are positive and those in the second a

Positive acceleration differ from negative acceleration?

Yes. Mathematically, they have opposite signs. So they are opposing vectors. In terms of physics, they represent the effects of forces acting in opposite directions.

What is the graph for positive acceleration?

If the x-axis is time and the y-axis is location, the graph will beconcave upwards because with positive acceleration, the secondderivative of the graph is positive. Another w
