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
