(a) Find the average velocity during each time period:

(i)[1,2]

(ii) [1,1.1]

(iii) [1, 1.01]

(iv) [1, 1.001]

(b) Estimate the instantaneous velocity of the particle when t=1.

Can someone please help me with this question, the trig functions have me confused. Please and thanks again.

**bobpursley**, Tuesday, September 23, 2008 at 8:43pmPUt in the times given, first the final time,then calculate position, then put in the initial time, and calculate position.

avg velocity=(finalposition-initialposition)/timeduration
