Time and Displacement Graph Help

  1. Sep 23, 2007 #1
    i was given information on the time and displacement of an object and the question says to make a position time graph. Can i just use the displacements given or do i have to convert them.

    Welcome to the PF. The typical way to do this is to draw the time axis horizontally on the paper, and the displacement axis vertically. Then plot the points that you have (t,d), and connect the dots to show the graph of position versus time.
