## Addisu 3 years ago How do you draw a velocity graph from an acceleration graph?

• This Question is Open
1. 4farhan4

integrate the acceleration function to get the velocity function and then plot it

2. stefo

The answer is surely correct. Anyway, 4farhan4 probably refers to a graphical solution. As I depicted in the figure below, you can "estimate" the velocity function behaviour following these steps: 1. establish a base line (dotted line) as reference; 2. choose the time interval for your "graphical" integration; 3. first point of v is the distance of a curve and the base line; 4. the second point is the distance of v plus the distance of the previous point; 5. repeat the method of the previous step for the next points

using matlab

first draw the co-ordinate axis x and y. now analyse three things and you will be able to draw velocity graph.. 1- see for very small time interval if acceleration is constant then at that interval velocity will increase but if acceleration is increasing then velocity will increase but more rapidly. 2-if acceleration is decreasing then also velocity will increase till it becomes zero but less rapidly. 3- if acceleration is zero then velocity will be constant. by analyzing these thing you can draw velocity graph..
