1. An object moves along the x-axis according to the equation: x(t) = (2 t 2 + t - 1) m, where t is in seconds. Determine: (20 points) (a) the average speed between t = 1 s and t = 4 s, (b) the instantaneous speed at t = 3 s (c) the average acceleration between t = 1 s and t = 4 s, (d) the instantaneous acceleration at t = 3 s (a) v avg = m/s (b) v = m/s (c) a avg = m/s 2 (d) v avg = m/s 2

2. A car (initially at rest) starts moving with a constant acceleration of 2 m/s 2 until it reaches a speed of 8 m/s. He then keeps that speed constant for some time. If the total distance traveled is 250 m, how much time does it take for the total trip of the car? (20 points) t = s
