Not actually the speed but the velocity ,slope is described as dy/dx and in the position time graph position is on y-axis&amp;time on x-axis,so slope=dx/dt which is equal to velocity

ds/dt gives the velocity at that instant. So slope gives the velocity

The slope of a line on a position/time graph, represents rate of change.

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

The slope of a position vs time graph gives the velocity of the object moving.

The slope on a position-time graph is the velocity.

A steep slope on a position-time graph indicates an average velocity with a fast speed.

The slope of a position-time graph is velocity. The slope of a velocity-time graph is acceleration. Displacement also can be determined by determining the area under the slope of a velocity-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.

The slope of a speed vs position graph represents the rate at which the velocity is changing ( increasing or decreasing). This is the acceleration.

The slope of the tangent line in a position vs. time graph is the velocity of an object. Velocity is the rate of change of position, and on a graph, slope is the rate of change of the function. We can use the slope to determine the velocity at any point on the graph. This works best with calculus. Take the derivative of the position function with respect to time. You can then plug in any value for x, and get the velocity of the object.

Slope of time Vs distance graph gives the inverse of velocity.

The slope of a line on a position vs. time graph would represent the a velocity of the object being described.

The slope of a force vs. time graph is equal to the change in momentum or the Impulse.

The slope of a position/time graph is the speed (magnitude of velocity).If the graph's slope is changing, that means the speed is changing, andthat would be accelerated motion.

It is false. The slope of a straight line on a position-time graph is the average velocity. Slope = y2-y1/x2-x1. On a position-time graph, y is the position (d), and x is the time (t). So y2-y1 = df-di = displacement, and x2-x1 = tf-ti = time interval. Average velocity = displacement/time interval = df-di/tf-ti

If an x-t graph is a position-time graph, velocity is the slope of the line on the graph.

The slope tells you the object is travelling at a constant speed. If the position vs time graph is not linear, the slope tells you the average speed between the two points.

It is the radial velocity: that is, the speed in the direction towards or away from the origin. The slope will not be affected in any way at all by movement in other directions.

That means the speed (the slope of the position-time graph) is decreasing.
