Would the y vs. t plot look like a parabola?

  1. Sep 28, 2008 #1
    Can anyone please explain to me what a y vs. t and a v vs. t plot would look like for an object projected vertically upward with an initial velocity of 34.3 m/s?

    Would the y vs. t plot look like a parabola?
    Would the v vs. t plot look like a diagonal line starting at 34.3 m/s and ending at -34.3 m/s?

    y vs t will look like a parabola, and v vs t will like like a line with negative slope, but not necessarily ending at -34m/s
