The velocity-time graph of a particle is given below. What is the acceleration of the particle?
Since the velocity is increasing uniformly, acceleration is constant and it is equal to the slope of the velocity-time graph.
Here, let us suppose (x1,y1)=(0,0) and (x2,y2)=(4,2)
Acceleration = Slope of velocity- time graph
Slope = y2−y1x2−x1 = 2−04−0=0.5ms−2
Hence, acceleration of particle = 0.5ms−2
