October 24, 2010 Physics 131 - Lecture 3 4 The graph shows how the position x of a particle depends on time t . Which choice is closest to the average speed of the particle in the time interval between 0 and 6 s? A. 0.40 m/s B. 0.67 m/s C. 0.75 m/s D. 1.50 m/s E. 2.22 m/s Clicker Question 1
October 24, 2010 Physics 131 - Lecture 3 5 Example: A Stone Dropped from a Cliff The position x of a stone dropped from a cliff is described approximately by the equation x = 5t 2 , where x is in meters and t is in seconds. The +x direction is downward and the origin is at the top of a cliff. Find the velocity of the stone during its fall as a function of time.

October 24, 2010 Physics 131 - Lecture 3 6 Example: A Stone Dropped from a Cliff The position x of a stone dropped from a cliff is described approximately by the equation x = 5t 2 , where x is in meters and t is in seconds. The +x direction is downward and the origin is at the top of a cliff. Find the velocity of the stone during its fall as a function of time.
