The average acceleration can be obtained by finding the slope of the graph.

The instantaneous acceleration is found by drawing a tangent to a particular point on the graph (instant) and finding the slope of than tangent.

How would you obtain the acceleration of an object from a velocity-time graph?

Just by drawing a tangent to the curve at a given point and finding its slope we can find the acceleration at that instant.


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 is the difference between object moves wint uniform acceleration and object moves with no acceleration?

An object moving with uniform acceleration has a uniform change in velocity over time, and its velocity-time graph will be a straight line with either a positive or negative slope. An object moving with no acceleration has constant velocity, and its velocity-time graph will be a straight, horizontal line with zero slope. Refer to the related link for illustrations.


What does the slope of a velocity vs time graph show you?

The rate of acceleration is a measure of the change of the velocity of an object with time. On a graph of velocity versus time, it is represented by the slope of the line so graphed. If velocity is changing in time, the object described is being accelerated. The greater the slope of the graph, the greater the change of velocity per unit of time and the greater the acceleration of that object. true


What is the physical significance of the slope of velocity vs time graph?

The slope of velocity is the acceleration of the object and indirectly the force of the object given the its mass.


What quantity is represented by the slope in a velocity-versus-time graph?

The slope of a velocity-versus-time graph represents the acceleration of the object.


Which force Acceleration is the slope of the velocity vs time graph?

The slope of a velocity-time graph is acceleration. If it is a straight line, then it is the average acceleration. Force is not part of the velocity-time graph.


What is the formula for calculating acceleration if velocity is constant in velocity time graph?

twice the velocity of the object divided by the supriment weight I have my PhD hope this helps That answer is wrong, or I misunderstand the question. If you have a velocity vs time graph, and the velocity is constant (graph is a horizontal line), then by definition, the change of velocity with respect to time (acceleration) is zero.


Is a velocity graph the same thing as an acceleration graph?

No. Velocity is displacement divided by time. Acceleration is velocity divided by time. However both graphs are related! If you graph the AREA under the slope of the acceleration graph vs. time, this will be a velocity graph. If you graph the SLOPE of the velocity graph vs. time, this will be an acceleration graph. When you learn calculus (unless you already know it) you will learn how you can switch between the two.


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.


How do you determine acceleration from a velocity vs time graph?

Acceleration is the slope/gradient of a velocity vs time graph


How is velocity time and acceleration related mathematically?

acceleration is the slope of the velocity graph. acceleration is also the derivative of velocity.


How do you make a velocity vs time graph from an acceleration vs time graph?

Your acceleration vs. Time graph is the slope of your velocity vs. time graph



Is velocity is the slope of the acceleration vs time graph?

Velocity is NOT the slope of the acceleration vs. time graph. Velocity is the area under the acceleration vs. time graph. Velocity is the slope of a position vs. time graph, though. For you Calculus Junkies, v = the integral of acceleration with respect to time.


What does a horizontal line on a velocity time graph show for acceleration?

If the graph is a horizontal line, then the velocity is constant, and acceleration is zero.


What is the importance of uniform acceleration graph in physics what is instantaneous velocity?

The slope of a velocity-time graph that shows uniform acceleration is the actual acceleration. Instantaneous velocity is the velocity of a body at a particular moment in time.


How can you find the acceleration from velocity time graph?

The gradient of the tangent to the velocity-time graph at any point is the acceleration at that point. If the v-t graph is a straight line then the gradient of that line is the acceleration.


What is the slope of the velocity vs time graph?

The slope represents the rate of change of velocity, which is the magnitude of the acceleration. If the velocity vs time graph is a straight line, that means the magnitude of velocity is constant, and the magnitude of acceleration is zero. The graph conveys no information regarding the direction of velocity or acceleration.


What graph are used to analyze the motionof an accelerating objects?

On a accelerating body, Velocity and distance of an object are effected. For a graph plotted with Acceleration to Time, it directly gives the acceleration at any given instant. For a graph plotted with Velocity versus Time. The Slope at any instant would give the Acceleration. Or given the time frame, say A to B. Acceleration can be found out by subtracting velocity at A from velocity at B divided by the time frame A to B.



Why is the slope of velocity graph the acceleration of gravity?

The slope of a straight line tells the rate at which your variables are changing. In this case, it tells you how your velocity is changing over time, which in physics is how we define acceleration. If you graph the velocity of an object vs time when it is falling through the air, it gives to the acceleration due to gravity because that is the acceleration all objects fall at.


Is a negative slop on velocity vs time graph that the object is not moving?

If the speed/time graph slops negatively, that's an indication that the speed is decreasing, i.e. the object is slowing down. The negative slop is also called negative acceleration, since acceleration is the rate of change of velocity.


What does the slope of a tangent to a velocity time graph measure?

Instantaneous acceleration... Slope of the tangent to a velocity time graph at any point is of the form velocity/time=acceleration.


What are the units for the area of an acceleration-time graph?

Velocity (acceleration x time = velocity).
