If your graph shows velocity on the vertical axis and time on the horizontal axis, then the slope of the graph represents the acceleration.

More specifically, the slope of the graph at a specific point represents the acceleration at that instantaneous point in time.

So if the slope of the graph doesn't change (i.e. the graph is a straight line), then the acceleration is constant and doesn't change over time.

In calculus, this is represented as the derivative: The derivative of velocity with respect to time equals the acceleration.

0The slope of a velocity-versus-time graph represents the acceleration of the object.

The slope of a velocity versus time graph is the acceleration.

Yes, acceleration is the slope of a velocity versus time graph.

The slope of the speed/time graph is the magnitude of acceleration. (It's very difficult to draw a graph of velocity, unless the direction is constant.)

the velocity of the object

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.

Acceleration.The slope of a graph gives the rate of change of one thing with respect to another.In a velocity time graph, the slope gives the rate of change of velocity with respect to time, that is how velocity changes over time. This is acceleration.

The rate of Change in acceleration.

instantaneous magnitude of velocity

The rate of change in accelleration.

Tangent of the slope at any point = velocity

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

The slope of a distance versus time graph tells you the rate of change of distance with time. That is, it tells you the velocity.

Note that the graph can't show velocity, only speed. The slope of the graph is the magnitude of acceleration. The area under the graph is distance covered.

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

The slope gives the velocity of the motion in the direction away from the origin.

The tangent at a point on the position-time graph represents the instantaneous velocity. 1. The tangent is the instantaneous slope. 2. Rather than "average" velocity, the slope gives you "instantaneous" velocity. The average of the instantaneous gives you average velocity.

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

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

the slope of distance time graph gives us velocity but when the body is at rest it will be zero

It gives you the speed. (not the velocity)

Graphically, your graph is just that; distance versus time. In general, it gives a position of x at a certain time of t. It should be noted that the slope of the graph at time t is the velocity of the graph at that time t.

the slope show the velocity of the object which show its direction and magnitude.

If the graph is a straight line, then the slope of the line is the average acceleration of the ball.

The slope of a distance versus time graph provides the instantaneous speed of an object. If data from this graph is then used to construct a speed versus time graph, the slope of that graph would provide the instantaneous acceleration.
