What does the slope of a time vs distance graph equal?

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


What does the slope of a position vs time graph represent?

If by position, you mean distance, then the slope or gradient of the line of distance vs. time represents speed.


How do you read distance vs time graphs?

The slope of the distance vs time graphs will give you the velocity (or speed)


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

The slope of [distance vs. time] is [speed]. If the slope is constant, then the speed is constant,meaning the magnitude of acceleration is zero.(The direction of velocity might still be changing though, which wouldn't show up on the graph.)


What does the slope of the line on distance over time graph tell us?

The slope of the line on distance vs time is the same as the change of distance with respect to time...which is called "speed".


What line will a distance vs time graph never show?

it will never be a vertical line as the slope is velocity and that would be infinite speed


How do you find slope on a distance vs. time graph?

The slope is the change in distance between any two points divided by the change in time between them.


What is a distance vs time graph?

A plot of velocity AND (by change in slope) acceleration.



Does a straight diagonal line on a distance versus time graph indicate constant speed?

Yes. Speed is the rate at which distance changes over time. In calculus terms v = dx/dt, or the slope of the distance vs. time graph. If the slope of the distance vs. time graph is a straight line, the speed is constant.


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.




What is the slope of a line on a distance vs time graph?

It gives the speed of the moving particle.




What does the slope of a distance vs time graph represent?

The slope of a graph with distance on the Y axis and time on the X represents the speed. Sometimes we say it represents velocity. (Speed with direction = velocity)


What is slope and how does it relate to rate?

Rate can be the slope of a line when some variables are graphed. Ex: When graphing distance vs time for a moving object the slope of the line is the rate.


How does the slope from the distance vs time graph compare to the average speed?

The slope of the line between two points on the distance/time graph is the same as the average speed during the time interval between those points.


What does slope describe on a speed vs time graph?

Slope of speed vs time graph = acceleration.


What type of slope does a temperature verse time graph show?

The slope of a temperature vs time graph shows the rate of change of temperature. The slope will be positive if the temperature is increasing with time and negative if it is decreasing.


What does straight line on a distance time graph tell you about the speed of an object?

It tells you that the speed of the object is not changing. The speed is represented by the slope in a distance vs. time graph, if slope doesn't change, speed doesn't.


Can you calculate speed from a motion graph?

If you graph distance vs. time, the slope of the line will be the average speed.


What does the slope of a distance vs time graph tell you?

Speed. Not "velocity" unless you also quote the direction of travel.


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.
