Homework Help: Slope of an x vs t plot question Help please

  1. Feb 17, 2006 #1
    Slope of an x vs t plot question....Help please..

    The slope of an x vs t plot is NOT acceleration right? The slope of a point on the x axes is just the velocity at that point in time, right? Thanks for any help you can give me.

    You are almost right, the slope of an x(t) plot gives the velocity of the point moving along the x axis vs time (v(t)=dx(t)/dt).
