1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
what type of motion is occurring when slope is zero?
not zero?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution
a.) constant motion or no motion
b.) changing velocity

Hi BeckyStar678!
Yes, that's right (especially if you can't spell accclellarration ) …

but why are you asking?

What's worrying you?

If constant motion means constant velocity, then yes that's right.

Slope of zero on a velocity-time graph shows that the velocity is constant at that point in time.
Slopes on velocity-time graphs are representations of acceleration.
positive slope = positive acceleration =
negative slope = negative acceleration
slope of zero = zero acceleration = constant motion
