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

 

Velocity = http://www.mansfieldct.org/schools/mms/staff/hand/lawsvelocityofaline_files/image005.gif 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
