we had to watch an animation which showed two balls, each traveling on a straight horizontal line at different speeds.
the graph of position vs time and velocity vs time are given.
The red ball has a linear graph and the coordinates are (0,0), (1,5), (2,10), (3,15), and (4,20)
for the blue ball:(0,0), (1,1), (2,2.5), (3,4.5), (4,7)
it is asked:
If the motion was allowed to continue the blue (lower) ball would reach the finish line (20m) at some time Δt after the red ball. What is Δt?
i though that it would take the blue ball around 9 seconds to reach the finish line,but I don't think this is right

here is the graph given can be seen if you search
"constant velocity versus constant acceleration" on google- its the first link

Sam, The response to

had been posted last night, even with a suggested correction that you have made this morning.
Would you like to check back before we continue?

Here is a copy of the previous response.
> (0,0), (1,1), (2,2.5), (3,5), (4,7)
Could you check the data for the blue ball to see if it is not:
(0,0), (1,1), (2,2.5), **(3,4.5)**, (4,7)
If that's the case, you will find that the function of the blue ball is
in which case you can easily solve for

I did that, and the answer came out to be 10.57, which isn't right.
I wasn't sure if a picture of it would help at all?

I have uploaded a graph but I am unable to show the link as I do not have privileges to do so. Sorry.

The answer is the solution to the equation
Do you have difficulties finding the solution to the above equations?
