First, record some data for this comparison in the table below. Record your measured values of displacement and velocity for times t = 8.0 seconds and t = 10.0 seconds in the columns below. Next, use the measured displacement and velocity values at t = 7.0 seconds and t = 9.0 seconds to interpolate the values of displacement and velocity at t = 8.0 seconds. Use the following formula to interpolate and extrapolate. Remember, x and y here represent values on the x and y axes of the graph. The x values will really be time and the y values will be either displacement (x) or velocity (vx). You should find that your interpolated and extrapolated values are not even close to the actual recorded values for these displacement and velocity readings. Describe the basic assumption behind interpolation and extrapolation, then for at least one of these values explain why the calculated value was significantly larger or smaller than the recorded value.Imagine that two balls, a basketball and a much larger exercise ball, are dropped from a parking garage.

###### "Before using Course Hero my grade was at 78%. By the end of the semester my grade was at 90%. I could not have done it without all the class material I found."

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
