R EVISITING K INEMATICS AND A REAS B ETWEEN C URVES Kinematics Recall that the gradient (slope) of a displacement-time graph gives a velocity-time graph. Therefore, the area under a velocity-time graph gives a displacement-time graph and the area under an acceleration-time graph gives a velocity time graph. Using this process you can derive the formulas for velocity and displacement given uniformly accelerated motion (physics). Note: Displacement = signed area Distance = total area a b Ex . The velocity of an object is v m/s after t seconds, where t v 2 sin 2 1 - = . a) Find the object’s displacement over the first 4 3 π seconds. b) Find the object’s distance over the first 4 3 seconds. (Absolute Value) (Determine t-intercepts)
