Solution (a) If velocity is constant then the graph of displacement vs. time is linear and the velocity is equal to the slop. From the figure we see the plot is linear from Solution (b) Largest slope means greatest velocity since the displacement is also the greatest. From the figure the greatest slope is at Solution (c) If the velocity is zero then the displacement x remains constant while time increases thus the slope is zero. From the

Unformatted text preview: figure between 35 s and 40 s the slope becomes zero at and the displacement is 20 m. Solution (d) Since the object's displacement started at zero went to 20 meters then to 10 meters it must of turned around. Or looking at the slope first its positive then negative so the velocity changed direction. [1/31/2008 12:16:39 PM]...

### 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.
