I am unfamiliar with Mathematica and the necessary syntax to approach visualize acceleration over time. I would appreciate some assistance or reference to a starting point on how to go about solving this problem. Please note that I have never used Mathematica before.
I am writing some game code that handles a third-person camera rotation that increases in speed over time (acceleration) as the left or right directional buttons are held down.
I am currently polling the directional button once every t milliseconds where sampling begins at the base and increases linearly every 100ms by a delta towards a maximum sampling rate.
So, for example (in microseconds):
TurnAccelMin = 10000.0 TurnAccelMax = 2000.0 TurnDelta = 1000.0
Note that acceleration is based on the sample rate so a lower maximum results in more samples over time. Even though sampling is in milliseconds, acceleration is stored as microseconds to account for a finer delta.
I would like to graph this so that I can visually see how the delta affects the acceleration over time. While I can picture in my mind the linear acceleration, I want to graph this so that I can visualize how different kinds of acceleration (exponential, quadratic, etc.) affect acceleration over a sample period.
How can I graph this as a line given these values as an equation?
Currently (as linear), where x = Time between 0 and 5 seconds and y = Acceleration in milliseconds.
Ideally I would like to see a graph of points, each connected by a straight line, as well as a table of values for each point when it is polled.
