Kinematics Graphs: Adjust the Acceleration

This is a simulation that shows the position vs. time, velocity vs. time, and acceleration vs. time graphs for an object. Adjust the initial position and initial velocity of the objects, and then adjust the acceleration of the object during the four time intervals represented on all the graphs. Watch how the graphs of Position vs. Time and Velocity vs. Time change as they adjust to match the motion shown on the Acceleration vs. Time graph.
