Question

The steepness of the position-time graph represents the ___.

  1. Acceleration
  2. Displacement
  3. Time
  4. Velocity

hintHint:

In the position-time graph, the y-axis represents the position and the x-axis represents time.

The correct answer is: Velocity


    The steepness of the position-time graph represents the Velocity.
