None of these graphs are correct.
Explanation:
The displacement is the integral of the ve
locity with respect to time:
Vx
=
i
Vv dt .
Because the velocity increases linearly from
zero at Frst, then remains constant, then de
creases linearly to zero, the displacement will
increase at Frst proportional to time squared,
then increase linearly, and then increase pro
portional to negative time squared.
±rom these facts, we can obtain the correct
answer.

The following 5 questions refer to a toy
car which can move to the right or left on a
horizontal surface along a straight line (the +
distance axis).
The positive direction is to the right. Dif
ferent motions of the car are described be

Choose the accelerationtime graph
which corresponds to the motion of the car
described in each statement.
