Unformatted text preview: mitra (am53956) HW 2 Opyrchal (11113) 1 This print-out should have 17 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points A car travels along a straight stretch of road. It proceeds for 11 mi at 52 mi / h, then 25 . 4 mi at 43 mi / h, and finally 48 . 5 mi at 38 mi / h. What is the cars average velocity during the entire trip? Correct answer: 40 . 8457 mi / h. Explanation: Let : d A = 11 mi , v A = 52 mi / h , d B = 25 . 4 mi , v B = 43 mi / h , d C = 48 . 5 mi , and v C = 38 mi / h . The total time the car spent on the road is t = d A v A + d B v B + d C v C = 11 mi 52 mi / h + 25 . 4 mi 43 mi / h + 48 . 5 mi 38 mi / h = 2 . 07855 h , so the average velocity is v = d t = d A + d B + d C t = 11 mi + 25 . 4 mi + 48 . 5 mi 2 . 07855 h = 40 . 8457 mi / h . 002 (part 1 of 3) 10.0 points Consider the plot below describing motion along a straight line with an initial position of x = 10 m.- 4- 3- 2- 1 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 b b b b b time (s) velocity(m/s) What is the position at 2 seconds? Correct answer: 19 m.
