The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
hi everyone. i am a student studying in hong kong and i have problems when i am preparing for my studies in this summer vacation. My tutorial lesson teacher gave me this graph and told me to convert it to a v-t graph. i have done several steps and i am wondering if i am having a good start. Can you draw me a correct answer over here? I am really grateful for your help! Thanks!

*(A,B,C,D,E,F,G) are just points, they can be ignored.

There is a problem on your c-d pencil line on what I assume is your velocity v. time graph.

It also looks like you have an S written on the y-axis of the graph drawn in pencil?

This also probably belongs in the introduction to physics section. I dont know if the moderators move these threads.

in hong kong we called d-t graphs as s-t graphs (as i know)

sorry thats wrong. the graph below is a v-t graph

ok then...

Do you see what is wrong with the c to d line drawn on your s-t graph?

s for speed... ?If it really is a v-t graph, then the slope is important, it indicates direction.

ok then...

Is the slope of your d-t graph + or - in the c-d time frame?
