But, that would mean that it is traveling the same rate at each second interval. :P And thus, we would have constant velocity and no acceleration. 8D Yeah...I just realized that it should be about 5 m/s all the way through... -_-

If I remember correctly if you have a straight line in any distance/time graph, the velocity is constant. It's only if you have a exponential curve that you have acceleration.

At least I think so, I haven't done this in a while. >_<

Yeah, that's right. If a distance/time graph is straight: constant velocity, no acceleration. If it's curved, then there's acceleration. Although if it's straight horizontally, then that means there's no velocity. :P

Also, yes, it would be a straight, horizontal line where y = whatever you found the velocity to be. As you found the velocity to be 6 m/s, then you would start at (0, 6), and draw a line straight to (10, 6). :D
