APPLICATION In many experiments, a velocity versus position (v- s) profile is obtained. If we have a v-s graph for the rocket sled, can we determine its acceleration at position s = 300 meters ? How?

Graphing provides a good way to handle complex motions that would be difficult to describe with formulas. Graphs also provide a visual description of motion and reinforce the calculus concepts of differentiation and integration as used in dynamics. The approach builds on the facts that slope and
