Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the initial line appears to be vertical hence the X value doesn't change, therefore the equation is x='constant' . You can get the value of the constant from the graph (NOTE  if this is intended to be the flight of a aircraft then it is evidently impossible to climb like that  ie it gains altitiude in 0 time  an infinite rate of climb. Note 2  it is not the whole line that is valid for the climb  it is a 'line segment' and is bounded by y=0 and y = 9

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2also  the numbers on your graph don't seem to make sense: you have 10 at both ends of the x axis you have what looks like 1/5 halfway along the negative axis the path hits the ground twice where did this drawing originate?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@MrNood I didn't mean to have multiple negative 10's. This is a roller coaster project im working on.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2OK so the x axis is not time  it is distance? and y axis is height? it does mean that you have a truly vertical lift at the beginning  most rides climb up a sloping track.
