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?
