Hint B.1How to approach the problemHint not displayed
The graphs in Parts A and B were not the only possible velocity and position graphs for the given net force. However, all graphs illustrating motion under the influence of a constant force will have thesame characteristics.In this particular problem, the acceleration of the object was constant. This caused the velocity graph to be a linear curve of constant slope (i.e., a straight line). When velocity obeys a linear relationship,the position of the object follows a curve whose shape is quadratic (also called parabolic). You saw examples of this type of motion when you studied motion under constant velocity in an earlierchapter.Understanding Newton's LawsPart AAn object cannot remain at rest unless which of the following holds?Hint A.1How to approach the problemHint not displayedHint A.2Newton's 1st law: a body at restHint not displayed
