a. Our line of best fit (in each section, in this case section a) is a straight line. This indicates that there was constant positive acceleration b. a = Δv = vf – vi = – 0 = Δt = tf – ti = 1.1s – 0s = 1.1s a = = (Acceleration) c. (Equal to the slope as the slope in a velocity-time graph, the slope is equal to acceleration) d. Constant acceleration is shown by a straight line

e. Our line was straight. However, if it was not straight, that may have been due to friction f. Yes; whenever the acceleration was constant, it would be a straight line. When there is no acceleration, it is still technically constant, so therefore there would also be a straight line. g. There would have been greater acceleration (steeper slope) if the ramp had been made When the angle is...
