## Which graph represents an object moving in the negative direction?

time graph shows an object moving in the negative direction at a constant speed.

## What is the negative direction of a graph?

Moving up or to the right will be represented by positive values, and moving down or to the left will be represented by negative values.

## What is an object moving in the negative direction?

An object which moves in the negative direction has a negative velocity. If the object is slowing down then its acceleration vector is directed in the opposite direction as its motion (in this case, a positive acceleration).

## What does a negative position graph mean?

Flexi Says: The slope of a position-time graph represents the velocity. The steeper the slope is, the faster the motion is changing. A negative slope means the velocity is negative i.e. the movement of the object is in a backward or opposite direction.

## Which graph shows a negative?

A scatterplot with a negative correlation is a graph that shows that all of the data points are in a pattern trending down from left to right. The scatterplot shows that, in general, as x increases, y decreases which means the data points have a negative association or relationship.

## Which graph represents an object moving in the positive direction?

A velocity-time graph for an object moving with a constant speed in the positive direction is shown below. To have a constant speed in the positive direction is to have a + velocity which is unchanging. Thus, the line on the graph will be in the + region of the graph (above 0).

## Can you have a negative graph?

How do you know if a slope is negative or positive using the graph? If the graph of a line rises from left to right, the slope is positive. Here, as x increases, y increases. If the graph of the line falls from left to right the slope is negative.

## Why would a graph be negative?

Decreasing Graph: Negative Linear Function Because the y-values are decreasing as the x increases, the function is said to be decreasing. The slope comes out negative, which confirms that the function is decreasing. At x = 0, the y-value is -3, and at x = 1, the y-value is -2.

## Can you have a negative position graph?

Flexi Says: If a position-time graph has a negative slope, it means that the object is moving with a negative velocity or, in other words, moving in the opposite direction.

## Is the object moving in the positive or negative direction?

Velocity is positive if an object is moving to the right and it is negative if an object is moving to the left. Speed tells how fast an object is moving without saying anything about its direction. Speed is always positive. Speed is the absolute value of the velocity.

## What is moving in the negative direction and speeding up on a graph?

An object moving in the negative direction and speeding up will be represented on a v-t graph by a sloped line located in the – velocity region. Since such an object has a – acceleration, the line will slope downwards (- acceleration).

## When an object is moving in negative direction with negative acceleration?

Negative acceleration: An object has a negative acceleration if an object is moving in a positive direction and slowing down, or moving in a negative direction and speeding up.

## What is the graph of an object with negative acceleration?

The slope of the line on a velocity-time graph reveals the acceleration of the object. An upward slope indicates positive acceleration; this means the object is speeding up. A downward slope indicates negative acceleration, or deceleration, meaning the object is slowing down.

## Is moving right on a graph positive or negative?

If the graph of a line rises from left to right, the slope is positive. If the graph of the line falls from left to right the slope is negative.

## Is moving right on a graph negative?

We find it by dividing the vertical change (rise) by the horizontal change (run). If we move right on a graph and go up, the slope is positive. If we go down, it’s negative.

## Is moving left on a graph negative?

The vertical shift results from a constant added to the output. Move the graph up for a positive constant and down for a negative constant. The horizontal shift results from a constant added to the input. Move the graph left for a positive constant and right for a negative constant.
