4. If the position of an object is plotted vertically on a graph and the time is plotted horizontally, the instantaneous velocity at a particular time is A) the height of the curve at that time. B) the total length of the curve. C) the slope of the tangent to the curve at that time. D) the area under the curve from zero to that time. E) impossible to determine from this type of plot. 5. On a graph that shows position on the vertical axis and time on the horizontal axis, a straight line with a positive slope represents A) a constant positive acceleration. D) a constant positive velocity. B) a constant negative acceleration. E) a constant negative velocity. C) zero velocity. 6. On a graph that shows position on the vertical axis and time on the horizontal axis, a straight line with a negative slope represents A) a constant positive acceleration. D) a constant positive velocity. B) a constant negative acceleration.
