# Just a quick question about v vs. t graphs

We've been working on acceleration and velocity in my physics class and I've got a question about velocity vs. time graphs. My assignment asks me to:
A. construct a qualitative graph for v vs. t
B. construct a quantitatively accurate v vs. t graph
I'm pretty sure I know how to solve A because it's what we've been doing in class, but how would I solve B/what would it look like?

I don't think my question requires me to actually write the problem, but if I need to I can. Any help for this (ridiculously) simple question?

"Quantatively accurate" means that the velocity axis,
and the time axis, both need to have numerical values on them.

If you are starting with a known (quantitative) x vs t graph,
you'll have to calculate the velocity for each segment of motion
by computing the slope (rise/run).

If you're starting with a known (quantitative) a vs t graph,
you'll have to compute the area under the curve up till each time
(typically by counting "boxes" on the graph paper).

Thank you so much!!
