Unformatted text preview: The ( ). 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,...
