Figure 8 shows position-time graphs of the straight-line movement of two brown bears in a wildlife preserve. Which bear has the greater average velocity over the entire period? Which bear has the greater velocity at t = 8.0 min? Is the velocity of bear A always positive? Is the velocity of bear B ever negative?

• physics -

greater average veloicty means higher slope on position-time.
