HELP . easy-ish question

  1. Sep 17, 2007 #1
    i know this is easy but i can't seem to get it.

    the graph given is a velocity-time graph, at t=0s it's at 12m/s, constantly slowing down to -4m/s at 4seconds.
    aka:

    time|velocity
    0--|-- 12m/s
    1--|---8m/s
    2--|---4m/s
    3--|---0m/s
    4--|--- (-4m/s)


    what is the displacement at t=1s, t=2s, t=3s, and t=4s ?

    GIVEN: at t=0s it is 10m.

    Hello and welcome to PF.

    You should read the posting guidelines: this is homework which should go in the homework section. I will displace the post. But in the homework section, you should show some work by yourself before you get help...

    Welcome! Tell us if you know of any formulas that can relate displacement (just plain distance is this particular case), a "rate" (velocity), and time.
