An algebraic graph shows
A steep line means that the
In Physics, if an object is moving, we can draw a graph of its journey, plotting how far an object has moved (distance), in a a certain time.
Distance is shown on the vertical (
The slope of such a graph is an indication of the SPEED.
A steeper line shows that a further distance was covered in a short time, so this indicates a FAST speed. Whereas, a line with a gentle slope means that the object was travelling SLOWLY because a short distance is covered in a longer time.
