### The figure below shows six different motion diagrams. The separation between dots is in the same scale in all diagrams, and the time interval between dots is also the same for all of them. The direction of the positive x-axis is also shown. Rank the diagrams according to the x-component of the acceleration. (Positive is greater than negative)

ANSWER: D<B<A=C=F<ETo get the acceleration of the given velocity diagrams, we need to subtract the first vector from the second vector. Doing this, we come up with the following: the acceleration of A is zero because the length of the arrows is not changing; B has a positive acceleration; C has zero aceleration; D has a negative acceleration greater than; E has positive acceleration; F has zero. With this, we can say that D<B<A=C=F<E
