Velocity of a line
Velocity = Distance/Time. These equations can be rewritten as:
Velocity = Distance
Time |
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 |
