What type of motion is this?

  1. Apr 14, 2010 #1
    What type of motion is experienced by an object moving down an inclined plane?
    uniform motion, uniform acceleration, or nonuniform acceleration?

    its a curve on the postion-time graph and a straight line on the velocity-time graph.

    i know its definitely not uniform motion..is it uniform acceleration?

    If it is a straight line on the v-t graph, what can you deduce about its acceleration, using the definition of acceleration?
