hello. Im taking university physics and Im having a difficult time with this problem. can someone help me with it? i really appreciate it very much :)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

You're testing out a new automobile: starting from rest, you put it through its paces as follows.

a. accelerate for 6.3s at 3.9 m s-2

b. continue to accelerate for 12.2 s at 0.4 m s-2

c. maintain the final speed for 9.6 s

d. hit the brakes--come to a stop in 4.4 s

e. put it in reverse and accelerate backwards for 3.6 s at 2.4 m/m2

f. remain motionless for 6.1 s

g. accelerate uniformly at 2.9 m/s2 for 8.3s

draw three graphs showing position, velocity, and acceleration as functions of time, labeling all values. note that unit conversions are necessary. you may convert to any set of units, as long as they are constant.

from what i understand is to make a graph with the x-axis label as seconds and start from 0 till 13. after, label the yaxis from 0 till 9 m/s^{2}

but its asking 3 graphs! how will i know which is position, velocity and position?
