What does the slope of a velocity – time graph represent?

Answer :

The slope of velocity – time graph represent acceleration. Since, Slope =

= Change in y – axis


= Change in x – axis


y = Velocity = v


x = time = t


So, = = Change in velocity


= = Change in time


So, Slope = =


We know that Acceleration =



So, Slope of Velocity – Time graph is acceleration.
