integrate acceleration to get velocity
Posted:

I've got an acceleration vector (1:30,000) and a corresponding time vector of the same length. Could I use simply the function "cumtrapz (time,acceleration)" to get the velocity vector? doesn't this function sum the areas of the rectangles or it distinguishes itself to calculate just the rectangular area blow each interval?
thanks
