A car accelerates from rest at 5 m/s^2 for 5 seconds. It moves with a constant velocity for some time, and then decelerates at 5 m/s^2 to come to rest. The entire journey takes 25 seconds. Plot the velocity-time graph of the motion.

They don't give me a graph so I made one. I have the velocity (vertical)going from 2-14 and the time (horizontal) going from 5-50. I'm not sure on where to start plotting, maybe my graph is a little off.

  1. Your graph is more than a little off.

    Take the equations, make a data table, and plot.

    velocity time
    0 0
    5 1
    10 2
    and so on. In case you don't know
    velocity= initial veloctiy + acceleration*time
