(a) Using the fact that the area of a triangle is 1 (base) (height) (and the fact that the 2 integral corresponds to the area under the curve) we find, from t = 0 through t = 5 s, the integral of v with respect to t is 15 m. Since we are told that x0 = 0 then we conclude that x = 15 m when t = 5.0 s. (b) We see directly from the graph that v = 2.0 m/s when t = 5.0 s. (c) Since a = dv/dt = slope of the graph, we find that the acceleration during the interval 4 < t < 6 is uniformly equal to –2.0 m/s2. (d) Thinking of x(t) in terms of accumulated area (on the graph), we note that x(1) = 1 m; using this and the value found in part (a), Eq. 2- 2 produces x(5) − x(1) 15 m − 1 m vavg = = = 3.5...

### What students are saying

• 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.
