From 100 to 120 ms, region C has the shape of a rectangle with area 2 C area (0.0200 s) (50.0 m/s ) = 1.00 m/s. = From 110 to 160 ms, region D has the shape of a trapezoid with area 2 D 1 (0.0400 s) (50.0 20.0) m/s 1.40 m/s. 2 =+ = Substituting these values into Eq. 2-26, with v 0 =0 then gives 1 0 0 1 50 m/s + 1.00 m/s + 1.40 m/s = 3.90 m/s, v. −=+ or 1 390±m/s. = 65. The key idea here is that the speed of the head (and the torso as well) at any given time can be calculated by finding the area on the graph of the head’s acceleration versus time, as shown in Eq. 2-26: 10 01 area between the acceleration curve and the time axis, from
