    Velocity-Vs Time Graphs -- 2nd problem

    How would i sketch a velocity vs time graph for the following scenario:

    A ball is thrown up out of a person's hand, it rises and then returns to the person's hand.

    I just don't know how to illustrate this on a velocity vs time graph

    Sketch the vertical position versus time graph. Then sketch the derivative of that graph. Put time on the horizontal axis for both graphs.
