Homework Help: Velocity & Displacement Graphing

  1. Sep 17, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I just want to know how you determine the acceleration on a velocity vs. time graph and how to determine the velocity on a displacement vs. time graph.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Welcome to Physics Forums.

    Velocity is the slope of the displacement-vs-time graph.

    Similarly, acceleration is the slope of the velocity-vs-time graph.
