(a) acceleration

(b) speed

(c) displacement

(d) momentum

The slope of a velocity-time graph gives acceleration. The ratio of the rise, the vertical change between two points to the run, the horizontal change between the same two points is called the slope of a graph.

### Slope of a Velocity-Time Graph

• The slope of a velocity-time graph is determined by the velocity (v) on the vertical axis and the time (t) on the horizontal axis.
• Slope = Δv/ Δt
• The slope of a velocity-time graph indicates the acceleration since the rate of change of velocity is known as acceleration.
• A velocity-time graph’s slope therefore indicates the acceleration.

Summary:

## The slope of a velocity-time graph gives? (a) acceleration (b) speed (c) displacement (d) momentum

Acceleration is indicated by a velocity-time graph’s slope. The vertical change between points, the rise divided by the horizontal change between the same points, the run is referred to as slope.
