Displacement with a velocity time graph that is a parabola

  1. Jul 8, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    How would you find the displacement of a velocity/time graph when it is in the shape of a parabola?

    2. Relevant equations

    I know Velocity x time = displacement.

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I know that velocity x time = displacement, but how do you find the area under the graph when it is parabolic?

    The displacement is the integral of the velocity with respect time in the given time interval. What is the original text of the problem?
