In a distance-time graph, if the line is horizontal, then the object is:
When an object is at rest it will not be able to cover any distance . So for any object at rest the distance -time graph is horizontal to time axis
On the distance-time graph, the Y-axis should be labeled as:
Independent variables are plotted along X-axis and Dependent variables are plotted along Y-axis. In the distance-time graph, time is independent and distance is a dependent variables.
The slope of the distance-time graph is:
For a body performing motion with uniform speed, the distance-time graph is:
For a body moving at uniform speed, the distance time graph is a straight line inclined to the time axis, which may pass through origin or some other point on the y- axis.
As in uniform motion, the distance time graph would be a straight line, because the equal distance is covered in equal units of time.
What is the slope of distance-time graph when object is at rest?
