Is this the proper description of the statement...(it's a d-t graph)

The slope of the graph at point A is 30.
Ans: The instantaneous velocity of the object at point A is 30.

Or is it supposed to be instantaneous acceleration.

• Physics -

Velocity I think if it is a distance vs. Time graph, If it was a Velocity vs. Time graph then Acceleration.
