Question

# The velocity-time graph of a uniformly accelerating body is a ____.

- Straight line parallel to the time-axis
- Straight line passing through the origin
- A curved line
- A curved line passing through the origin

Hint:

### Slope of velocity-time graph shows **acceleration.**

## The correct answer is: Straight line passing through the origin

### In velocity-time graph, a straight line from origin represents that body started from rest is moving with increase in velocity with equal intervals of time. So, it can be said that a straight line from origin represents a uniformly accelerating body correctly.
