Question

What does the slope of a Position vs. Time graph represent?

1 Answer

  • Your question asks what the slope of a Position vs. Time graph represents.

    Your answer would be Velocity.

    The slope of a Position vs. Time graph would represent the velocity of the object.

    If the slope is positive, then the object has a positive velocity ,in which it is going forward.

    If the slope is negative, then the object has a negative velocity, which means that it's going the opposite direction, or backwards.

    If the slope is at a "horizontal" position, this means that the object is stopped or isn't moving at all.
