The slope of a Position-versus-time graph is expressed as:

$\overline{)\begin{array}{rcl}\mathbf{S}\mathbf{l}\mathbf{o}\mathbf{p}\mathbf{e}& {\mathbf{=}}& \frac{\mathbf{dx}}{\mathbf{dt}}\end{array}}$

The slope at a point on a position-versus-time graph of an object is

a. The object's speed at that point.

b. The object's average velocity at that point.

c. The object's instantaneous velocity at that point.

d. The object's acceleration at that point.

e. The distance traveled by the object to that point.
