    I do not think a position-time^2 graph has meaning because time^2 has no meaning that I know of. Moreover, acceleration is in units of displacement per second per second. For example, meter per second^2. Displacement and position are NOT the same. Displacement is a change in position over a specified time period. Displacement is used to determine velocity, and change in velocity is used to determine acceleration. The bottom line is that a position-time^2 graph does not provide meaningful information.

    x/t is velocity, position vs time what is x/t^2?
