# What is the quantity which is measured by the area occupied below the velocity-time graph?

Let us consider an object in uniform motion, its velocity-time graph can be represented as:

We know that area of rectangle $$= l × b$$

Here, area under the velocity-time graph = velocity × time = displacement
{ Velocity = $$displacement \over time$$ }

So, displacement is measured by the area occupied below the velocity-time graph.
