- The acceleration vs time graph is an horizontal line, because acceleration is a constant (-9,8 m/s^2).
- The velocity vs time graph is a straight line; its slope is negative, because this slope equals the acceleration.
- The position vs time graph is a parabola. The slope of the tangent equals the velocity.
The title says it all: this blog features physics videos found everywhere on the web: animations, demonstrations, lectures, documentaries.

One dimensional motion with constant acceleration
Graphs of position, velocity and acceleration in funciton of time for an object thrown upward vertically (air resistance is neglected).
