So I understand how to draw velocity-time graph from distance graph and acceleration-time graph from velocity-time (basically the slope)

But I don't understand how to draw distance-time from velocity-time graph and velocity-time graph from distance-time graph.


Please help! how would I do that?

Instead of taking the slope, you add up the area enclosed under the graph so far.

see, distance=velocity x time so once you plot the velocity-time graph... check out the area under the gradient and plot the same on another distance time graph in which the gradient is equal to the velocity....
