Solution (a) Since the object's x-position at point B is less then at point A the object is moving in the negative direction. Solution (b) Since the object moves a greater distance between 1 s and 1.5 s then it does between 0 s and .5 s the object's must be speeding up. Solution (c) Since the object's position is decreasing (part a) and its speed is increasing (part b) the acceleration must be negative. Solution (d) Since the object's x-position at point D is less then at point E the object is moving in the positive direction.

Unformatted text preview: Solution (e) Since the object moves a greater distance between 5.5 s and 6 s then it does between 4.5 s and 5 s the object's must be speeding up. Solution (f) Since the object's position is increasing (part d) and its speed is increasing (part e) the acceleration must be positive. Solution (g) Since the object's position (x-value) doesn't change the object must not be moving at all, its speed is not increasing or decreasing and the acceleration is zero.

### 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.
