Which of Juliette's statements is not a true statement about a position vs. time graph?
1 "A steeper slope means a higher average velocity (faster motion)."
2 "A horizontal line has zero slope. Therefore, a horizontal line on the position vs. time graph means that the average velocity is zero."
3 "The sign of the slope gives the sign of the average velocity and, therefore, the direction of motion."
4 "A horizontal line has infinite slope. Therefore, a horizontal line on the position vs. time graph means that the average velocity is zero."

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I know the 4th one makes no sense. I mean a horizontal slope does not mean that it is infinite

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it means 0 slope. But some others make no sense either

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But could you explain to me why it could not be the other ones? It is just they are confusing :/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh no wonder I was confused because I know that A and B are true. C might be true.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0D is obviously false. A horizontal line always have a slope of zero.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Average velocity formula vfvi/2 If slope is decreasing vf would be less than vi. A (lesser number  greater number)/2= negative number Slop decreasing is a negative number and so does the average velocity.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1When the the curve is horizontal angle x=0 and hence tan 0 = 0. Therefore velocity which is equal to the slope of positiontime graph is also zero.
