If the velocity versus time graph of an object is a horizontal line, the object is
Slide 2-5 Reading Question 2.1 The slope at a point on a position-versus-time graph of an object is the A. Object’s speed at that point. B. Object’s average velocity at that point. What is the formula for speed? , How is speed different from velocity?, What is the average speed of a cow that walks east 60 meters in 90 seconds? (Remember, the units must be m/s or km/hr), A porcupine moved toward a pond at a speed of 5 m/s. Observe that the line on the graph is a straight, diagonal line. As learned earlier, a diagonal line on a velocity versus time graph signifies an accelerated motion. Since a free-falling object is undergoing an acceleration (g = 9.8 m/s/s, downward), it would be expected that its velocity-time graph would be diagonal.
