Here we see an animation that shows the relation between these two quantities:

- The slope of the v vs. t graph.
- The value of the acceleration.

Also, one can see the relation between these two quantities:

- The slope of the x vs. t graph.
- The value of the velocity graph.

Comments:

- The constant value of the a vs. t graph is equal to the constant slope of the v vs. t graph.
- When the acceleration is constant and positive, the slope of the v vs. t graph is constant and positive. When the acceleration is constant and negative, the slope of the v vs. t graph is constant and negative.
- When the value of the velocity is increasing with time, the slope of the x vs. t graph is continually added to as time passes.
- When the value of the velocity is decreasing with time, the slope of the x vs. t graph is continually subtracted from as time passes.
- See
Constant Acceleration Animate 2 for a similar situation but with v
_{o}= 4.0 m/s. - See
Constant Acceleration Animate 3
for a similar situation but with v
_{o}= -4.0 m/s.
