Velocity - Time Graph

  • The gradient of the velocity-time gradient gives a value of the changing rate in velocity, which is the acceleration of the object.
  • The area below the velocity-time graph gives a value of the object's displacement.

Analysing Velocity-Time Graph

Uniform velocity
Uniform acceleration
Increasing acceleration
Uniform deceleration
Decreasing acceleration

Converting a Velocity-Time graph to Acceleration-Time graph

In order to convert a velocity-time graph to acceleration time graph, we need to find the gradient of the velocity time graph and plot it in the acceleration-time graph.

    I believe that we are solely responsible for our choices, and we have to accept the consequences of every deed, word, and thought throughout our lifetime. See the link below for more info.
