(
). The
position function has the form: ( )
vertical scale on the axis has a value of . Solution
We have the graph of the velocity function v(t), and the value of v at time t = 0.
If we start with the position function, and differentiate with respect to time, we will get the velocity function:
() ( ) If you are comfortable with differentiationi then you will know that this has the result
() ( ) We also know that vs = 4.0 cm/s at t = 0, so we substitute these values in to the expression for v(t)
()
From the graph, the maximum value of the velocity function is 5.0 cm/s,...
