Position and acceleration graphs

  1. Jun 29, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Find the position and acceleration graphs from the velocity graphs given.

    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution
    I'm pretty sure I've gotten some of them correct but I don't know which one I've done wrong.

    I think you should check the first and last answers..

    The graph for ax cannot be F. Acceleration is the slope of the velocity curve. At no point does the slope of the velocity curve change abruptly.

    The graph for the position x cannot be I. At t=7 the slope of the position graph I is negative so the velocity should be negative.
