acceleration estimate
posted by Jen .
t(sec) 1 1.5 2 2.5
v(ft/sec) 12.2 1.3 13.4 13.7
velocity of an object moving along a line at various times.
How do I estimate the object's acceleration(in ft/sec^2) at t=1
TIA
t(sec) 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5
v(ft/sec) 12.2 ,1.3 ,13.4 ,13.7
The second velocity of 1.3ft/sec is an error, it has to be 13.?
Look at the last data: delta T= .5 sec
deltaV= .3ft/sec
acceleration estimate: deltaV/DeltaT
You can do more of these, then average.
Overall, delta T=1.5 sec delta V 1.5
Now at t=1. Using your data, which I find the V at 1.5 sec to be in error...
delta t=.5 delta V= 10.9 But I suspec the V is wrong data.

Well, bobpursley explained this to me. I didn't understand this well. Since there was an error in the data, I am posting it again t(sec) v(ft/sec) 1 12.2 1.5 13 2 13.4 2.5 13.7 velocity of an object moving along a line at various times. …
