So I have to make a velocity time graph, and I'm given a distance time graph. How the F*ck do i do it?
Velocity is the change in distance over time (ie the slope of your distance-time graph)
Quote by usedillusions
V = D/t

S = D/T

Velocity is speed in one direction only.

ummm no, velocity is a vector quantity with both direction and magnitude, speed is a scaler with just magnitude, this is why when they talk about max speed of cars or whatever they don't use a direction. and to ts, to get a VT graph from a DT graph use the slope, to do the opposite use area under the curve.
Mr. Butlertron are you A handsome B smart C scrap metal or D all of the above
Scangrade thats easy I'm A and B but not C, so it can't be all of the above, but you can't fill in two ovals Nooo!

ooh I'm just regurgitating what I remember from GCSE physics which looks like what this thread is in aid of.

Okay it goes like this and this is the best version u'll ever find:

Since u want a velocity time graph, remember V = U + ( A x T )
V=final velocity, U=initial velocity, A=acceleration, T=time
So velocity will be the slope, distance will be at the Y-axis and time at the X-axis.

Some points:
We can also do speed=distance/time as speed is velocity in one direction.
Velocity can be + or -
We can find the distance by finding the area of the graph [as said in the picture]

And remember, Wikipedia it if u dont know

Now what do I get for helping you out?

Yeah, it's pretty flexible. Like gavz.
