- Homework Statement
- match the distance- time graphs to their corresponding velocity - time graphs

- Relevant Equations
- kinematics

now there is something i am not getting here, consider for instance graph ##a##,

analyzing this graph i can say as follows;

between time ##0≤ t<1, ## the velocity is increasing...

at time ##t=1##, also reffered to as being intantaneously at rest, at this point we have acceleration ##a=0##,

between time##1< t<3 ##, the velocity is decreasing...

at the point ##t=3##, we have ##a=0##,

between time ##3< t<5 ##,velocity is increasing...

is my analysis correct?

lets start with the graph a. Now if my analysis is correct, which corresponding graph will suffice?

i would expect that if velocity is increasing between time ##0≤ t<1,## then acceleration should equally be increasing, and i cannot see which graph reflects that...
