    I really need help with some physics questions. My test is tomorrow.

    Velocity vs. Time Graph

    What does the slope mean? Acceleration
    What does the area under the slope mean? Distance

    Distance vs. Time Graph

    What does the slope mean? Velocity
    What does the area under the slope mean? Acceleration

    Acceleration vs. Time Graph

    What does the slope mean? ______
    What does the area under the slope mean? ________


    Am I correct??? I don't want to study the wrong thing.

    i believe you are right and on the acceleration vs time graph the acceleration is the velocity
    I hope this helps

    The area under the curve in the acceleration vs time graph should be the average velocity of the object while the slope would be the rate of change of acceleration. It has been awhile!
