The driver sees a patrol car at time t 1 and rapidly slows down by around 10 miles per hour. After continuing at this speed for a few minutes, the driver at time t 2 returns to the earlier constant speed. Which graph correctly describes the car’s acceleration a ( t ) as a function of time? Take the forward direction of motion as positive. 1. t 1 time 0 0 a t 2 2. t 1 time 0 0 a t 2 3. t 1 time 0 0 a t 2 correct 4. t 1 time 0 0 a t 2 5. t 1 time 0 0 a t 2 6. t 1 time 0 0 a t 2 7. t 1 time 0 0 a t 2 8. t 1 time 0 0 a t 2 Explanation: Analyze the acceleration over each part of the trip: 1) Moves at constant speed: a = 0 2) Rapidly slows down: a < 0 briefly 3) Continues at this speed: a = 0 4) Returns to earlier speed: a > 0 briefly 5) Original constant speed: a = 0 002 10.0 points

    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.
