The slope (technically, the slope of the tangent at each point) of a distance-time graph gives the instantaneous velocity. Therefore, if the graph has a constant slope - i.e. it is a straight line - then that indicates a constant velocity (zero acceleration).
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.
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.
It is the instantaneous speed in the direction in which the displacement is measured.
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.
Instantaneous acceleration... Slope of the tangent to a velocity time graph at any point is of the form velocity/time=acceleration.
Deceleration (negative acceleration) is represented by a negative slope on a velocity-time graph.
Yes it does. Better call it instantaneous acceleration.
A distance-time graph shows the movement of an object with respect to time. The average slope between any two points on the graph is equal to the average velocity of the object between those two points. The instantaneous slope (or derivative) at a point on the graph is equal to the instantaneous velocity of the object at that point.
The slope of a velocity-time graph that shows uniform acceleration is the actual acceleration. Instantaneous velocity is the velocity of a body at a particular moment in time.
instantaneous magnitude of velocity
The slope of a velocity-versus-time graph represents the acceleration of the object.
It shows up as a part of the graph where its slope is negative.
The average acceleration can be obtained by finding the slope of the graph. The instantaneous acceleration is found by drawing a tangent to a particular point on the graph (instant) and finding the slope of than tangent.
The acceleration. If the slope is only at a certain point then it's instantaneous acceleration and if the slope is made from two points then it's an average acceleration.
Velocity is the slope of the line on a D-t graph
just like direct proportionality and make negative slope in graph
It is the instantaneous speed at that specific time.
No, it is instantaneous acceleration.
It is the gradient (slope) of the line.
a negative slope this is for my e2020 home boyz
Constant line with slope = acceleration Deceleration means the slope is negative\ (higher on the left\)
Acceleration is the derivative of velocity (a=dv/dt). If you are not familiar with calculus then it would be sufficient to say that the slope of the line tangent to the graph, only touches at one point, is equal to the instantaneous acceleration.
