Unformatted text preview: is its average velocity over the 5 s interval?
To find the average velocity of the object, simply take the total distance it travelled and divide it by the time it travelled for. 9 m / 5 s = 1.8 m/s Therefore, the average velocity of the object is 1.8 m/s. What is its instantaneous velocity?
Its instantaneous velocities at 1 s and at 2 s are both 3 m/s. Its instantaneous velocity at 3 s, is 2 m/s. At 4 s, its instantaneous velocity is 1 m/s, and 0 m/s at 5 s....
