Graphical Analysis: Motion

How is the shape of an object’s position-time, velocity-time, and acceleration-time graph related to itsmotion? Experimentally determine the relationships between a cart’s position-time, velocity-time,and acceleration-time graphs as the cart experiences constant velocity and constant acceleration,both positive and negative.
