From the given function,
x
(
t
)
=
bt
+
ct
3
, and the definition of average velocity (Equation 2-1),
v
=
!
x
=
!
t
, one obtains:
(a)
v
a
=
[
x
(3 s)
!
x
(1 s)]
=
(3 s
!
1 s)
=
[(1.5 m/s)(3 s
!
1 s)
+
(0.64 m/s
2
)(9 s

!

]
=
2 s
=
9.82 m/s;
(b)
v
b
=
[
x
(2.5 s)
!
x
(1.5 s)]
=
(2.5 s
!
1.5 s)
=
9.34 m/s;
(c)
v
c
=
[
x
(2.05 s)
!
x
(1.95 s)]
=
(2.05 s
!
1.95 s)
=
9.18 m/s.
(d) The instantaneous velocity
(Equation 2-2b) is
v
(
t
)
=
dx
=
dt
=
b
+
3
ct
2
.
At
t
=
2.00 s,
v
(2 s)
=
1.5 m/s
+
3(0.64 m/s
3
)(2 s)
2
=
9.18 m/s. As the interval surrounding 2 s gets smaller, the average and instantaneous velocities
agree better; the values in parts (c) and (d) differ by less than 0.02%.

to
v

When stopping, the egg’s velocity changes from
v

11.0
m/s to
v
3

in 0.131 s,
with average acceleration
a
=
(0
!
11.0 m/s
=
0.131 s
=
!
84.0 m/s
2
. (A negative sign
means that the acceleration is upward; when the speed is decreasing, this is
called a deceleration.)
