### 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.

### How would you describe the slope of a graph showing fast speed?

If it is distance from a point versus time, with distance on the
vertical axis and time on the horizontal axis, it would show a
steep vertical climb on the graph. The steeper vertical change, the
faster, but never completely vertical. Large "rise" (distance) over
short "run" (time). With 0 acceleration, the graph is a straight
line.

### When you add vectors graphically you draw arrows to represent the vectors How do you know how long to draw the arrows?

To know the Length of the Vector represented on the graph you
have to first know the unit you are representing on it. Say the
Vector being represented is a distance of 3 Km, You would have to
first create a scale for the graph showing a shortened version of
it. (Ex. 1Cm=.5km)
______________
The length of the arrow is in proportion to the force that the
vector exerts on the body.

### How do you make a model on any type of pollution for a school science exibition?

You could make a model of a pond and the types of life that live
in and near it, showing how man-made products and litter destroy
water habitats.
You could build a model of a beaver's dam and show how plastic
bottles and plastic bags harm the beaver's habitat.
Answer
You can either do the diminution of pollution from a source with
distance, This is what happens with a smoke plume leaving a source
and gradually getting less concentrated with distance. it can be
represented with a 2D representation of a cone (or triangle ) of
the areas covered by the plume as they leave the source with the
pollution getting less dense as distance increases.
Alternately it can be represented as a bio-accumulation model
where each level of predator concentrated the pollution from the
species it eats.
