t (seconds) 0 1 2 3 4 5

s (meters) 0 1.6 4.6 10.4 17.8 25.2

(a) Find the average velocity for the time period [1, 3].

? m/s

(b) Find the average velocity for the time period [2, 3].

? m/s

(c) Find the average velocity for the time period [3, 5].

? m/s

(d) Find the average velocity for the time period [3, 4].

? m/s

Help! I have no idea where to start with this question!

**drwls**, Sunday, August 29, 2010 at 10:39amDo them all the same way.

It would e easier to see if the numbers in your table lined up one above the other.

The average velocity between time 1 (t1) and time 2 (t2) is:

(position2 - position1)/(t2 - t1)

The first answer is

(10.4 - 1.6)/(3 -1) = 3.25 m/s
