Lecture 6 pls-6.2 2. Graphical Relationships between x , v x , and a x . Example 1 Clicker question 6 . ( ) t v x = slope of ( ) t x ( ) t a x = slope of ( ) t v x (m) (s) (m/s) (m/s 2 ) (s) (s) Infinite acceleration at these points, which is impossible because force cannot be infinite! Kinks in ( ) t x are unphysical; see text box below.
