Homework Help: Acceleration-velocity-position graph~

  1. Sep 20, 2010 #1
    How do I draw a velocity vs time graph and a position vs time graph if I'm a given a acceleration vs time graph ?
    Thank you :D

    The area under the acceleration vs. time graph gives the velocity at that point. Similarly, the area under the velocity vs. time graph gives the position.

    For example, the area from t=0 to t=t1, will give the velocity at t= t1.
