What does the slope of a velocity- time represent?

The slope in the velocity-time graph represents the acceleration.

The slope is defined as the ratio of change in y-axis to change in the x-axis.

The slope is represented by the letter m and following is the general formula used for determining the slope:



  • m is the slope
  • y2 – y1 is the difference in the units on the y-axis
  • x2 – x1 is the difference in the units on the x-axis

Slope of velocity-time graph is acceleration
