How to do velocity-time graph to distance graph/acceleration to velocity graph?

  1. Feb 18, 2010 #1
    So I understand how to draw velocity-time graph "from" distance graph and acceleration-time graph "from" velocity-time (basically the slope)

    But I don't understand how to draw distance-time from velocity-time graph and velocity-time graph from distance-time graph.

    Please help! how would I do that?

    Distance travelled in a particular time interval is the area under the velocity-time graph between those two times.
    If the graph is a straight line (uniform or zero acceleration) then it's a simple matter.
    Velocity is the area under the acceleration-time graph.
