Velocity of a line

Back To Forces and Motion

Velocity = Distance/Time. These equations can be rewritten as:


Velocity = Distance


Velocity = Final Distance Initial Distance

Final Time Initial Time



The slope of the line is the velocity of the line.


Slope = Rise/Run.


The rise (distance) is 10 and the run (time) is 4.


The Slope = 10/4 = 2.5 m/s
