Mark 0 on the first digit of birth day on the bubble scan sheet . (Do not fill in your birth date.) There are twenty questions, each of which carries equal weight. 1. A car traveling with constant acceleration is at 3 s at 1 m and at 9 s at 10 m as shown. What is the average velocity for this time interval ? A. 0.66 m/ s B. 1.0 m/ s C. 1.5 m/ s D. 0.5 m/ s E. 3.0 m/ s 2. In the graph shown the object is at 2 s at 3 m . The object is at 6 s at A. 29.7 m B. 32.1 m C. 36.7 m D. 48.3 m E. 25.3 m 3.
