Any maths geeks out there?
Got a question.
If you have a graph showing acceleration over time, what does the area under the graph represent?

So acceleration is y axis up the side, time is x axis across the bottom, yes?
I think it would be speed. Accel is rate of change of speed. Distance / time^2 = distance / time / time If you take the area you multiply the x by the y So distance / time / time * time = distance / time which = speed Hope that makes sense.

Area under graph
Try this link which suggests the area under the curve is distance.
Acceleration is change in velocity. https://www.khanacademy.org/science/...vstimegraphs

Surely the axis of the graph would be distance and time?
I don't think the area under the line represents anything, only the points on the line have any reference to the information?
