use straight line equation to find the slopes and plot the graph...if u give an ex i can tell u more clearly... Askiitians_Expert Yagyadutt

Hello ashutosh ..!

Well the only method in this case is ...

Acceleration = - v.dv/dx

So if curve between v and x is given you can calculate it slope ..or you can say dv/dx

You can find out v is terms of x becAUse the graph of v versus  x is given ..if it is parabola ..then v^2 = 4ax ..if it is straight line passing through origin ..v = kx ..or any function like these...( I hope you can find it ..)

Simple then ..multiply the function  v  with the slope along with -ve sign will give you the acceleration in terms of x

Example :-)

If v^2 = 4ax

then ...   2v.dv/dx = 4a

or v.dv/dx = 2a

-v.dv/dx = -2a

Hence acceleration in this case is constant...and equal to ..-2a ...( and the graph between acceleration and x will be a straight line paralled to x-axis)

Hope it is clear
