1
Area under a velocity-time graph Car travelling at 70 mph for 2 hours Area = This is the distance travelled, 140 miles 2 70 = 140 v mph t hours 0 2 70 The area under a velocity-time graph gives the distance travelled (displacement)

2
Car accelerating steadily from 0 to 20 ms -1 in 5 seconds Distance travelled = 50 metres = 50 m Acceleration = = 4 ms -2 v ms -1 t seconds 0 5 20 Area of triangle Gradient of a velocity-time graph This is 4 ms -1 per second The gradient of a velocity-time graph gives the acceleration.

3
Summary The area under a velocity-time graph gives the displacement The gradient of a velocity-time graph gives the acceleration Area of a triangle Area of a trapezium b h b h a
