Question

# What does the steepness of a position-time graph indicate?

- Velocity
- Acceleration
- Change in position
- None of the above

Hint:

### Steepness of position-time graph indicates **velocity**

## The correct answer is: Velocity

### The slope of position-time graph indicates velocity. In this graph, Y-axis represents position and X-axis represents time by the slope we can understand with how much velocity the body was moving to reach a certain distance. We can use a simple formula in position-time graph that is; dx/dt = v.
