2.31: a) At t = 3 s the graph is horizontal and the acceleration is 0. From t = 5 s to t = 9 s, the acceleration is constant (from the graph) and equal to 2 s 4 s m 20 s m 45 s m 3 . 6 = - . From t = 9 s to t = 13 s the acceleration is constant and equal to . s m 2 . 11 2 s 4 s m 45 0 - = - b) In the first five seconds, the area under the graph is the area of the rectangle, (20 m) (5 s) = 100 m.

Unformatted text preview: Between t = 5 s and t = 9 s, the area under the trapezoid is (1/2)(45 m/s + 20 m/s)(4 s) = 130 m (compare to Eq. (2.14)), and so the total distance in the first 9 s is 230 m. Between t = 9 s and t = 13 s, the area under the triangle is m 90 s) 4 )( s m 45 )( 2 1 ( = , and so the total distance in the first 13 s is 320 m....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
