How to convert an acceleration time graph, into a velocity time graph

4 views (last 30 days)
I have acceleration in the x and y values and corrosponding time values plotted on a graph which are from another function which gives them as 'ax''ay' and 't', both in vector form. t is incrementing in 0.1(s). And acceleration has positive and negative values. And V0 = 0
I've tried many things such as integrating 'a' with respect to 't', or using V= u+at each in for loops. But my MATLAB skills are incredibly limited. Any help or suggestions would be massively appreciated! I am very new to matlab!

You can integrate the acceleration vector with cumsum or cumtrapz to get the velocity, and again to get the space.
