When you cut the tree down the roots will live on and continue to support your slope. Slowly another tree will start to grow. However, if you kill the roots they will eventually rot out and your slope will lose it's support.

It depends on whether it is a positive slope or a negative slope. If the velocity increases as time goes on, yes the particle is accelerating. If the velocity decreases as time goes on, it is decelerating.

What is Slope overload noise?

Slope overload distorsion - is caused by use of step size delta which is too small to follow portions of waveform that has a steep slope. Can be reduced by increasing the step size. Granular noise - is caused by too large step size in signal parts with small slope. It can be reduced by decreasing the step size.

What is mean by slope in science graph?

It means the steepness of the line (which could actually change as you go along the line). Imagine a drawing of the outline of a hill. It starts level (flat, = zero slope) and starts to turn upwards with increasing slope, flattens off at the top (zero slope there) and then goes on with increasing negative slope as you continue down the other side. So the lines on graphs are described in a simliar way. The value of the slope is calculate by the small distance you go up or down for a small distance traveled sideways, divided by that small distance sideways.
