    velocity is the change in displacement over time so find the slope of the line between 2 points

    THe above answers assume that the velocity is constant (i.e. the displacement-time graph is a straight line) If this is not the case then the velocity at any time is the slope of the tangent to the graph at that time: |dw:1443040720103:dw|
