# How to find velocity from a acceleration time graph? watch

1. Would I just integrate it?

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 ?
3. 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.
5. Thank you!
