Help finding slope on position-time graph

  1. Sep 9, 2009 #1
    Im trying to make fill in a velocity-time graph from the a picture of a position-time graph. The position-time graph starts at 20m (no direction indicated) and slides dowb to 5m in 4 seconds. The slope would be -4m/s right? But the V-T graph I have to fill in has a maximum velocity of 6 m/s and a min of -6 m/s. What is the corect way of finding this?

    PS. while typing this I might have found out. Would you just draw a straight line starting at 4m/s until 4 seconds?

    Edit: Then I would have to convert the V-T graph to an A-T graph, using the slope of the V-T graph (which I think would be 0) how would that be drawn on the A-T graph?

    ^^^That would be a straight line at 0 right?
