# How do you plot a distance time graph when you are given a velocity time graph?

The area under a v/t graph is how far you've gone. Choose a point on the time axis, read off the speed and find the area underneath. If its a straight line graph, all you have to do is find the area of the triangle. This area is the distance travelled in this particular time. Repeat for several more points on the time axis. Plot distance against time.

### How do you find final position in an velocity vs time graph?

I think you mean distance traveled. Every tiny period "dt" of time, the distance gone is the velocity at that time, times dt. Plot velocity against time. Each little slice of velocity times dt is a slice of the area. So the total distance is the total area under the graph from time t=0 to the finish, or to whatever time you want. This is the principle behind the Integral Calculus.

### Why is the slope of a distance velocity squared graph straight and a distance velocity graph is not?

When acceleration is constant, one equation of kinematics is: (final velocity)^2 = 2(acceleration)(displacement) + (initial velocity)^2. When you are graphing this equation with displacement or position of the x-axis and (final velocity)^2 on the y-axis, the equation becomes: y = 2(acceleration)x + (initial velocity)^2. Since acceleration is constant, and there is only one initial velocity (so initial velocity is also constant), the equation becomes: y = constant*x + constant. This looks strangely like the equation…

### When drawing the graph of distance vs time squared how do you calculate the the acceleration due to gravity?

Example: x axis = time, y axis = distance, plot values of s, when t = say 0 to 10, step 1 > If time is the variable, and distance the dependent, you should have been given a figure for acceleration (g), without which, you cant plot the graph. > Acceleration due to earths gravity (g) at earths surface radius is generally taken as = 9.82 metres per second / per second. > Use: s…

### What is distance time graph?

A graph which shows how distance(dependent quantity) varies with time(independent quantity). For example, if you want to know how much distance a hare covers in a running race, you plot time along x axis, in seconds(say), and the distance it has traveled along the y axis, in meters(say) , so that by looking at the graph, you know how much distance the hare has traveled from the starting point at any instant of time, or…

### Plot the graph to show ball thrown vertically upward and comes downward ignoring air resistence?

If you want the graph to show the acceleration of the ball against time, then the graph is a horizontal line. If you want the graph to show the velocity of the ball against time, then the graph is a straight line sloping downward. If you want the graph to show the height of the ball against time, then the graph is a parabola that opens downward.

### How is constant acceleration represented on a velocity time graph?

When an object moves in a straight line with constant acceleration, the equation describing its position (s) in terms of time (t) is a quadratic function like s = a t2 + b t + c, where a, b, and c are constants. The graph of such an equation is a parabola. However, if u plot velocity against time, the function is linear, and the graph is a straight line.
