Finding acceleration

  1. Sep 9, 2008 #1
    Can someone tell me how I would determine the value of a car's acceleration from
    a graph using only y and t values(i.e., not computing velocity)?

    Thanks for the help,

    It would help if you speicify what y and t are. My guess is that they are distance and time, but it is up to you to give the definition.
