Here we see an animation that shows the relation between these two quantities:

- The slope of the x vs. t graph.
- The value of the velocity.

This page is very similar to the
XVA -
Constant Velocity Animate 1 page.
However, on that page the object's starting position was at
the origin, or x_{o} = 0.0 m. On this page the
object's starting position is at a positive coordinate, x_{o}
= 40.0 m.

Comments:

- These comments are the same a those on the XVA - Constant Velocity Animate 1 page. Moving the starting position of the motion away from the origin to a positive coordinate does not change the relationship between the slope of the x vs. t graph and the value of the velocity.
- The slope of the object's x vs. t graph is the velocity of the object.
- When the velocity is large and positive, the slope of the x vs. t graph is large and positive.
- When the velocity is small and positive, the slope of the x vs. t graph is small and positive.
- When the velocity is zero, the slope of the x vs. t graph is zero.
- When the velocity is small and negative, the slope of the x vs. t graph is small and negative.
- When the velocity is large and negative, the slope of the x vs. t graph is large and negative.
