### 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 is velocity -time graph?

It is a line graph in which the horizontal axis represents time
and the vertical graph represents the velocity of an object in a
specific direction. The direction is usually radial: away from
(positive) or towards (negative) from a fixed point of reference.
No account is taken of motion in a transverse direction.

### 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 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.

### The slope of velocity versus time graph gives?

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.

###### Asked in Gravity

### How projectile act as parabola?

The projectile doesn't act as a parabola, but a graph of the
magnitude of its
velocity vs time does.
In projectile motion, the horizontal component of velocity is
constant and the
vertical component is accelerated. The 2-dimensional resultant
of one constant
component and an accelerated one is a parabola.
