Homework Help: Finding average velocity from a velocity-time graph

  1. Sep 10, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Find the average velocity from the velocity-time graph:
    V / t
    3 / 0
    3 / 2
    2 / 2
    2 / 3
    1 / 3
    1 / 4
    0 / 4

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Im not sure if i can find the average velocity from this graph or if i have to make a position-time graph??

    Draw velocity-time graph and find the area of the graph.
    That gives you the total displacement. Total time known. From that find the average velocity.
