Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. The due time is Central time. Serway CP 02 06 02:01, trigonometry, numeric, > 1 min, nor- mal. 001 (part 1 of 5) 2 points The position versus time for a certain object moving along the x-axis is shown. The objects initial position is 0 m.- 6- 4- 2 2 4 6 8 10 12 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 time (s) position(m) Find the average velocity in the time inter- val 0 s to 2 s. Correct answer: 5 m / s. Explanation: Given : x f = 10 m and x i = 0 m . v av = x t = x f- x i t v av = 10 m- (0 m) 2 s- 0 s = 5 m / s . 002 (part 2 of 5) 2 points Find the average velocity in the time interval 0 s to 4 s. Correct answer: 1 . 25 m / s. Explanation: Given : x f = 5 m and x i = 0 m . v av = 5 m- (0 m) 4 s- 0 s = 1 . 25 m / s . 003 (part 3 of 5) 2 points Find the average velocity in the time interval 2 s to 4 s. Correct answer:- 2 . 5 m / s. Explanation: Given : x f = 5 m and x i = 10 m . v av = 5 m- (10 m) 4 s- 2 s =- 2 . 5 m / s . 004 (part 4 of 5) 2 points Find the average velocity in the time interval 4 s to 7 s. Correct answer:- 3 . 33333 m / s. Explanation: Given : x f =- 5 m and x i = 5 m . v av =- 5 m- (5 m) 7 s- 4 s =- 3 . 33333 m / s . 005 (part 5 of 5) 2 points Find the average velocity in the time interval 0 s to 9 s. Correct answer: 0 m / s. Explanation: Given : x f = 0 m and x i = 0 m . v av = 0 m- (0 m) 9 s- 0 s = 0 m / s . Acceleration vs Time 01 02:04, trigonometry, numeric, > 1 min, wording-variable. 006 (part 1 of 4) 3 points Consider the plot below describing the accel- eration of a particle along a straight line with Version One Homework 2 Heinz 81204 Sep 02, 2004 2 an initial position of- 30 m and an initial velocity of 4 m / s.- 4- 3- 2- 1 1 2 3 4 5 6 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 time (s) acceleration(m/s 2 ) What is the velocity at 3 s? Correct answer:- 5 m / s. Explanation: In order to use the above graph, let x = x , 1 =- 30 m , v = v , 1 = 4 m / s , ( t ,a ) = ( t , 1 ,a ) = (0 s , 0 m / s 2 ) , ( t 1 ,a 1 ) = ( t , 1 ,a 1 , 2 ) = (0 s ,- 3 m / s 2 ) , ( t 2 ,a 2 ) = ( t 2 , 3 ,a 1 , 2 ) = (4 s ,- 3 m / s 2 ) , ( t 3 ,a 3 ) = ( t 2 , 3 ,a 3 , 4 ) = (4 s , 5 m / s 2 ) , ( t 4 ,a 4 ) = ( t 4 , 5 ,a 3 , 4 ) = (9 s , 5 m / s 2 ) , and ( t 5 ,a 5 ) = ( t 4 , 5 ,a 5 ) = (9 s , 0 m / s 2 ) . Basic Concepts: The plot shows a curve of acceleration versus time . The change in velocity is the area ( a 1 , 2 t ) between the acceleration curve and the time axis v = v , 1 + a 1 , 2 t, where the acceleration is constant. Solution: With constant acceleration ( a 1 , 2 =- 3 m / s 2 ), v = v , 1 + a 1 , 2 t (1) = (4 m / s) + (- 3 m / s 2 )(3 s) =- 5 m / s ....
