    Do you have a function?

    Its much easier to think about the components of the Y and X axis'.

    The Y axis is acceleration so has units m/s^2
    The X axis is time so has units of s

    You know that velocity has units m/s

    So what do you need to do to go from m/s^2 to m/s ?

    So it's acceleration divided by time?
    But if the acceleration is 0, doesn't that mean that it's constant, but how do I find velocity from that?

    No no no,

    To get from m/s^2 to m/s you need to mutliply by s. So you'll can find the change in velocity by finding the area underneath the line of your graph.
