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.

What does a change in the slope of a motion graph indicate?

A change in the slope of a location-time graph of an object indicates a change in the radial component of its speed.


What does the slope of a distance versus-time graph show about the motion of an object?

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


What does the slope of a distance-verses time graph show about a motion of an object?

The slope of the graph at any point is the object's speed at that time. (Not velocity.)



You can use a distance versus time graph to analyze the motion of an accelerating object?

The slope at any point is the velocity, so you can construct a graph of that. The slope at any point on that graph is the acceleration. So you can construct a graph of that. The slope at any point on that is the rate of change of acceleration. And so on.


Is the steepness of a line on a motion graph is called a slope?

"Slope" is the steepness of the line on any graph.


How do you know there is no motion on a distance time-graph?

distance = velocity x time so on the graph velocity is slope. If slope is zero (horizontal line) there is no motion



The motion represented by a horizontal line on a distance time graph?

on a distance time graph, the slope of the line represents the speed of the object. A horizontal line indicates no movement. The object is at rest.


What type of motion is occurring when the slope of a distance vs time graph is zero?

The slope of the distance/time graph is the speed of motion. When the slope is zero, the distance is the same value at every time. Together, they indicate that the speed is zero, and the object is sitting in the same place as time goes on.



How is an object moving if a slanted straight line on a speed versus time graph represents its motion?

A straight slanted slope on a velocity-time graph indicates that the object is moving with a constant acceleration.


The distance time graph for a faster moving object has a smaller slope than the graph for a slower moving object True or false?

The distance time graph for a faster moving object has a smaller slope than the graph for a slower moving object - This is False


What information does the slope of the line in a distance-time graph give?

It gives the velocity of the object in the radial direction. The graph gives no information whtsoever about motion in a transverse direction.


What does the slope of a distance versus-time graph show you about the motion of an object?

The distance versus time graph shows the position of the object. The slope of the line shows the velocity of the object. The velocity is the direction and speed of an object. If your slope has a positive slant that means you are going in a positive direction. If the slope has a negative slant your object is going in a negative direction. If your slope is zero (a horizontal line) that means your object has stopped and is about to change directions. In case you didnt know a positive slant looks like this on a graph.... / a negative slant looks like this on a graph.... \ postive is like sloping up a hill negative is like falling down the hill


What motion does a steep slope on a distance time graph show?

Steep slope on a distance/time graph indicates high speed.


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.



What does the slope of a speed vs time graph indicate about an object's motion?

The slope of the speed/time graph is the magnitude (size) of the object's acceleration.


What does the slope of a speed vs time graph indicate an object's motion?

The slope of a speed vs time graph indicates an objects acceleration.


What type mof motion is occurring when the slope of a position vs time graph is changing?

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.


What is the significance of the slope of position vs time graph?

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


What does a horizontal slope of a distance versus time graph indicate about an objects motion?

It is a measure of speed of the object, but only in the radial direction: that is, towards or away from the point from which distance is measured. The object could be going around that point in circular motion and the graph would show absolutely nothing.



What does the slope of a distance versus time graph show you about the motion of an object?

It shows the component of the velocity of the object in the radial direction: that is, in the direction to (or away from) the point from which distances are measured. It says absolutely nothing about transverse motion. So, for example, the object could be running around the "origin" at any speed you like and the distance-versus-time graph will indicate no motion whatsoever!
