## Homework Statement

The graph below shows the vertical displacement of an object as a function of time.

(a) Construct a graph of the object’s velocity as a function of time.

(b) Construct a graph of the object’s acceleration as a function of time.

(c) Describe a scenario in which a real-life object might move in this way

## The Attempt at a Solution

Ok, Here is a picture. Graph A represents the original graph that we construct B and C from. I am not sure if I drew graph B (velocity as a function of time) and C (acceleration as a function of time) correctly. Did I?

Also for a potential scenario, I can't come up with anything except for maybe a helicopter that goes up to a certain height, then hovers at that height then comes back down. But I'm not sure about the curvatures on that original graph A so I want to make the scenario detailed.

Thanks!
