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.

What does the slope of a velocity-time graph indicate?

The slope of a velocity versus time graph is the acceleration.





What info does the slope of a lone indicate on a distance verses time graph?

On a distance/time graph, the slope of the line is the speed. (Magnitude of velocity.)



What does the slop of a velocity time graph indicate?

The SLOPE (you misspelled it) on a velocity time graph indicates that it is excelerating or decelerating (depending if it is going up or down)




What indicates a negative slope on avelocity time graph?

That would indicate that the velocity is decreasing over time.


What information can be learned from a position-time graph and from a speed-time graph?

The slope of a position-time graph is velocity. The slope of a velocity-time graph is acceleration. Displacement also can be determined by determining the area under the slope of a velocity-time graph.


Does the horizontal line on the velocity vs time graph indicate a constant and positive acceleration?

Ahorizontal line on a velocity vs time graph does not indicate any acceleration because there is no slope. Speed remains constant.


How do you find velocity on a position time graph?

The slope on a position-time graph is the velocity.


Which force Acceleration is the slope of the velocity vs time graph?

The slope of a velocity-time graph is acceleration. If it is a straight line, then it is the average acceleration. Force is not part of the velocity-time graph.


What does a less steep slope on a displacement vs time graph indicate?

A less steep slope indicates a slower velocity than that of a steeper slope.


Does a steep slope on a displacement vs time graph indicates a very large velocity?

Yes it does. Velocity = Displacement / Time. On a graph of displacement vs time, the slope is the velocity. Steeper slope = higher velocity, flatter slope = lower velocity.


What does a horizontal line on a distance-time graph indicate?

It means there is no velocity - it is at rest and nothing is moving. The slope of the line is velocity - a horizontal line is zero slope = zero velocity


What does the slope of a velocity time graph indicate?

Magnitude of acceleration (but conveys no informationregarding acceleration's direction).


Is velocity is the slope of the acceleration vs time graph?

Velocity is NOT the slope of the acceleration vs. time graph. Velocity is the area under the acceleration vs. time graph. Velocity is the slope of a position vs. time graph, though. For you Calculus Junkies, v = the integral of acceleration with respect to time.



Velocity is the slope of a displacement vs time graph true or false?

It is true that velocity is the slope of a displacement vs time graph.


Displacement is the slope of a velocity vs time graph true or false?

False. The slope of a velocity vs time graph is acceleration


What does slope velocity time graph give?

Acceleration.The slope of a graph gives the rate of change of one thing with respect to another.In a velocity time graph, the slope gives the rate of change of velocity with respect to time, that is how velocity changes over time. This is acceleration.


What does the slope of a tangent to a velocity time graph measure?

Instantaneous acceleration... Slope of the tangent to a velocity time graph at any point is of the form velocity/time=acceleration.


When velocity is changing what is happening to the slope on a position versus time graph?

The slope of the position/time graph is the magnitude of velocity, i.e. speed.It doesn't tell you anything about the direction of velocity. If the direction ofvelocity is changing, the slope of the graph doesn't necessarily change.If the magnitude of velocity (speed) changes, then the slope of the graph changes.If speeding up, the slope of the graph increases, and the graph curves upward.If slowing down, the slope of the graph decreases, and the graph curves downward.
