What is the difference in slopes for, let us say a graph showing zero acceleration, and a nonzero acceleration graph? Can you show me examples and explain please?
Also, I KNOW its Physics but NOBODY answers anything there.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Best is ask in physics, and if no one answers, then come here and shout for help, but provide a link to the original question. There are many situations (0/nonzero velocity, 0/nonzero acceleration), and many graphs (distance/time, velocity/time, and acceleration time). Also, we are assuming that if acceleration is present, it is a constant acceleration. Here's a summary of most of the situations. dw:1441043153106:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if the velocity is constant, what slope would it have then? such as in your examples, and what would the slope be called for initial velocity=0? the first one, I am curious.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2There are three graphs for each situation. For constant velocity, acceleration equals zero. The slope on the distancetime graph is the velocity. The ycoordinate on the velocitytime graph is the velocity (duh! ) The graph on the accelerationtime graph is zero, since by definition, constant velocity is zero acceleration.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Correction to the velocitytime graph when initial velocity > 0. dw:1441052561947:dw
