How to draw distance-time graph from velocity-time graph?

  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?

    Instead of taking the slope, you add up the area enclosed under the graph so far.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Derivative
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integral
     
  4. see, distance=velocity x time so once you plot the velocity-time graph... check out the area under the gradient and plot the same on another distance time graph in which the gradient is equal to the velocity....
