    Welcome to PF. Please note that in order to answer homework questions, we must first see some of your own working. For example, do you know how to express the gradient of a position-time graph as a fraction? Do you know a formula linking d,t and another variable?

    Also, in future please post in the homework forums.

    If the position of an object changes with time, what does this tell you about the object in question. Hint: rate of change.
