Title: graphs of increasing/decreasing/uniform acceleration
Post by: leeyiren on October 01, 2010, 11:30:16 pm
can any1 enlighten me of graphs (displacement-time/velocity-time/acceleration-time) of increasing/decreasing/uniform acceleration?

btw is increasing acceleration the same as accelerating at an increasing rate?

thx

I would suggest you try to draw it by yourself in a piece of paper?
Try with the following case:
acceleration a(t)=ct where c is a constant (i.e. $\frac{da}{dt}=c$).
You can try to derive v(t) and x(t),too!
