(10.1 m)(t / s)+(1.1 m)(t /s)2 and v(t ) = !10.1 m/s+(2.2 m/s)(t / s) Speed ! Speed is the absolute value of the velocity vector ! Velocity is a vector, speed a scalar! ! Relationship to distance: v = speed = !x ! = !t !t ! Note: position at minimum where velocity is zero! • E x p e c te d fr o m c a lc u lu s August 31, 2006 Physics for Scientists&Engineers 1 13 August 31, 2006 Physics for Scientists&Engineers 1 14 E x a m p le : S w im m in g la p s ( 1 ) ! Suppose a swimmer swims the first 50 m of the 100 m freestyle in 38.2 seconds. Once she reaches the far side of the pool, she turns around and swims back to the start in 42.5 seconds. ! Question: What is the average velocity and speed for the leg from start to the far side of the pool, for the return leg, and for the total trip? E x a m p le : S w im m in g la p s ( 2 ) !
