Homework Help: Problems with velocity-time graphs

  1. Jan 11, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    There are many variables and many questions, I'd just like to know how to go about it because I can't seem to understand the teacher and he's always in the way when he writes down equations, also hes a bit sporadic when it comes to giving us notes, jumping from subject to subject.




    - Need formula for displacement on a velocity-time graphs and where (and how) i find the variables

    - Need formula for instantaneous velocity from a velocity-time graph and where (and how) i find the variables

    - Need formula for acceleration from a velocity-time graph and where (and how) i find the variables


    Last but not least

    - Need formula for average velocity from a velocity-time graph and where (and how) i find the variables

    2. Relevant equations
    - This is what I'm trying to find



    3. The attempt at a solution
    I've read through my notes many times but they seem too sporadic and unorganized so i plan on re-doing the notes based on this post


    thanks!
