# Re: Axis Transformation, time -> distance

Hi all,

I have a graph, plotted as Force vs. Time. Now, I want to plot the graph as Force vs. Distance. I'm taking distance = 1/2(F/mass)*(t^2). I think this is the right way to do it, but just need some confirmation.

Thanks,
Mike

That would work only if the force is constant. Generally, the relation between distance and time is a bit more complicated:

$$x-x_0 = v_0 t + \int_{0}^{t}\int_{0}^{t'}\frac {F(t'')}{m}dt'' dt'$$
