    Just like finding most formulea we can look the unit and use basic maths to change it. so what is the unit of velocity? m/s and the unit of time is 's' or seconds. now we need hte unit of distance; (m) how do we find meters with m/s and s. if we we multiply the units, the seconds will cancel out. |dw:1444479058737:dw| now all we gotta do is replace the units in the equation with the quantities of each unit. so m/s with velocity and s with time and we get. \[distance=speed \times time\] lets asume that in our graph the magnitude of each is 4 and 2 reaspectivly. our graph would look like this; |dw:1444479601545:dw| distance=speed into time=4x2= 8m.

    Usually the area under the graph shows us the displacement.

    I am sorry but zakista what u said looks confusing to me but the thing what i know is that the area under the graph shows the distance so my graph has a straight line from coordinates(0,-30) to (6,30)so i just didnt get it that how shall i find the distance if the negative numbers are there too on the graph.....
