The plots show the variation of velocity and distance as functions of time for uniformly accelerated motion. The red points show the velocity and the distance traveled for a particular value of time. The upper plots show velocity and distance as a function of time, for a fixed acceleration. In the 3D plots, the acceleration is varied too; then, the surfaces can be seen as the set of all 2D curves.
