(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

a) Calculate the slope for each segment

b) Describe the motion the object experiences in each segment

c) Make a velocity vs time graph using the slopes

d) Make a acceleration time graph

(for the distance-time graph)

Segment A slope of zero

Segment B constant slope of +1

Segment C slope of zero

Segment D sharp change to slope of -3

Segment E sudden change to slope of zero

Segment F constant slope of -2/5

Segment G slope of zero

2. Relevant equations

slope = deltaY/deltaX

acceleration = deltaV/deltaT

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm fine on a and b, but for c my graph just has horizontal segments at varying y values that correspond to the earlier velocities (slopes). I think this may be wrong. Anyway if it isn't does that mean that my acceleration-time graph will be a load of horizontal lines since all the velocity changes were sudden and constant?
