Using Velocity Time Graph to find acceleration?

  1. Sep 16, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    How can one use a velocity Time Graph to determine the acceleration of an object?
    Show Work.

    2. Relevant equations
    Acceleration: Aav = DeltaV/Delta t

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Maybe by finding the slope of the veloctiy time graph not sure can someone clarify?

    Hi gohanssj2a99 and welcome to PF. Yes, the acceleration is the slope of the v vs. t graph.
