Homework Statement


I need help plotting the acceleration time graph from a given velocity-time graph.


Homework Equations


I know you need to do slope [Which is already provided] [9.40 m/s2]

I also attached the distance-time graph [first one] and I also attached the velocity time graph [graph 2]

The slope of the position vs. time graph is velocity.

The slope of the velocity vs. time graph is acceleration.

Your acceleration looks reasonably constant at ‒9.4 m/s2.
