Kinematics: Positive-Velocity and Acceleration Graphs

P,V and accel graphs. Explain what motion pos graph is showing, and how these graphs were made. Explain simply and with details please.

Solution Preview

I assume it is a object moving between A and B.

From the graph of position, the position first increases with time nonlinearly, (nonlinear is because it is a curve, not a straight line),(increasing mean the object is moving forward from A to B), then the position decreases with time nonlinearly, which means the object is moving backward from B to A, and it returns to A. So we know that the ...

Solution Summary

The solution provides a detailed explanation of position-velocity and acceleration graphs.
