APPLICATION In many experiments, a velocity versus position (v-s) profile is obtained. If we have a v-s graph for the tank truck, how can we determine its acceleration at position s = 1500 feet?

ERRATIC MOTION (Section 12.3) The approach builds on the facts that slope and differentiation are linked and that integration can be thought of as finding the area under a curve. Graphing provides a good way to handle complex motions that would be difficult to describe with formulas. Graphs also provide a visual description of motion and reinforce the calculus concepts of differentiation and integration as used in dynamics.
