1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
what type of motion is occurring when the slope of a distance vs time graph is 0?
when slope is constant?
when slope is changing?


2. Relevant equations



3. The attempt at a solution
a.) there is no motion
b.) there is constant mvt
c.) change from mvt to non mvt.

You almost have it.

When position changes you have velocity.

When velocity changes you get what?
