Here’s another way to interpret “average” that may make our computation appear even more reasonable. The object of our example goes a certain distance between t = 1 and t = 3. If instead the object were to travel at the average speed over the same time, it would go the same distance. At an average speed of 223 / 3 feet per second for two seconds the object would go 446 / 3 feet. How far does it actually go? We know how to compute...
