2.8. Set Up: is the slope of the x versus t graph. In each case this slope is constant, so is constant. Solve: The graphs of versus t are sketched in Figure 2.8. Figure 2.8 2.9. Set Up: Let be the direction the runner travels. Solve: (a) (b) (c) 2.10. Set Up: Assume constant speed so Solve: (a) (b) 2.11. Set Up: Solve: (a) (b) 2.12. Set Up: The distance around the circular track is For a half-lap, Use coordinates for which the origin is at her starting point and the x -axis is along a diameter, as shown in Figure 2.12. Figure 2.12 Solve: (a) After one lap she has returned to her starting point.
