Is the distance-time graph for acceleration always a straight line?

-- If the distance-time graph is a straight line, then the magnitude of acceleration is zero. -- If the magnitude of acceleration is not zero, then the distance-time graph is curved.


What is represented by a single point on a curved line in a distance time graph showing accelerated motion?

instantaneous acceleration* * * * *No it does not.The graph is a distance-time graph so the coordinates of a point on the graph represent the position (distance) at the specified time. The gradient of the tangent to the curve at that point represents the instantaneous radial velocity. The second derivative at that point, if it exists, would represent the acceleration.


What kind of line on a distance-versus-time graph indicates that the objects is accelerating?

Any curved line on a distance/time graph indicates the presence of accelerationthat's causing a change in the magnituide of the velocity. But if the object's speedis constant, and the acceleration is changing its direction only, then the line on theD-T graph would remain straight.In summary:Every curved line on a D-T graph reveals acceleration, but not every accelerationproduces a curved line on a D-T graph.


Why is the line curved on a distance vs time graph?

The object is accelerating or decelerating in the radial direction.


When the motion of an object is shown by a straight line on a distance versus time graph with distance on the y-axis what will the slope of the line be?

Does a line on a graph become less steep when the distance increases?

No. The distance of a line on a graph will not affect how steep it is. Distance does not affect slope.
