Distance Velocity Graph

Summary: Gradient = Acceleration(?)
Area = Time (?)

Good evening,

I have a problem that presents itself in a distance (y) velocity (x) graph. I've never come across this, and in my Physics textbook, the section dedicated to graphs does not have it.

My question is, what does the area of the graph represent? Time?

Welcome to the PF. :smile:

Please attach the figure to a reply. Since this is a schoolwork question, I will move this thread to the schoolwork forums for you. Thanks.

In addition to attaching a figure, perhaps you could tell us something about the situation being modeled. What is happening? What distance is being graphed? What velocity is being graphed?

There's no way we can tell you how two random quantities are related without knowing what those quantities are.
