How do you draw v-t, a-t and d-t graphs

  1. Sep 11, 2011 #1
    I was wondering if someone can explain to me in detail on how to accurately draw a velocity-time graph and an a-t graph when the d-t graph is given.

    If you differentiate the d-t function you get the v-t function.
    The second derivative of the d-t funciton is the a-t function.
    You just need to know how to draw the function after you solve for it.

    what if the d-t graph had a curved line? does the same thing apply?
