# `Is there a specific way to determine the function of a given graph?if not, `` `Then how will we solve the following question?the accelaration – time graph of a particle is such that at t=0, a= -2, and at t=1, a=0. (I cant draw the graph so i am giving data deducable form graph)(i) Find an expression of velocity in terms of t and draw v-t(ii) Derive x9t) and hence calculate the displacement of the particle in the time interval from t=2 sec to t=4 secAssume that x=0,v=0 at t=0 ????please help

No not by the information you have given.
But try integrating the graph by intervals rather than taking initial to final.

Now i have seen the attached image by you it wasn't coming before.
So,
from the graph we can say
a=2t-2;
$a=dv/dt=2t-2\\=>dv=(2t-2)dt \\=>v=t^2-2t+c$
Its quadratic equation you can draw its graph.
By the conditons given t=0 v=0 => c=0
$=>v=t^2-2t \\=>dx/dt=v=t^2-2t \\=>x=t^3/3-t^2+c$
again t=0 x=0; =>c=0
$\\=>x=t^3/3-t^2$
Rest you can do.
