Deriving s(t) from a x-y plane

  1. Jan 19, 2016 #1
    So if I'm given a coordinate plane that graphs the position of a particle, how do you get the s(t), in respect to time if given a table of time intervals.

    Given:
    f(x) = -x^2

    Needed:
    s(t)?
    v(t)?
    a(t)?

    f(x) is an equation for the shape of the road. How fast you drive along that road is and entirely different question.
