The transit time for the light is smaller by 300 10 331 906 10 8 5 . . × times, so it is negligible in comparison. Q2.2 Yes. Yes, if the particle winds up in the + x region at the end. Q2.3 Zero. Q2.4 Yes. Yes. Q2.5 No. Consider a sprinter running a straight-line race. His average velocity would simply be the length of the race divided by the time it took for him to complete the race. If he stops along the way to tie his shoe, then his instantaneous velocity at that point would be zero. Q2.6 We assume the object moves along a straight line. If its average
