Q: The slope of a position-time graph of an object gives the speed of the object. t OR FALSE

A: The slope of the tangent line in a position vs. time graph is the velocity of an object. Velocity is the rate of change of position, and on a graph, slope is the rate of change of the function. [ We can use the slope to determine the velocity at any point on the graph.
This works best with calculus. Take the derivative of the position function with respect to time. You can then plug in any

value for x, and get the velocity of the object. ]
