Compute the average velocity over time intervals [4, 4.01] , [4, 4.001] , [4, 4.0001] , [3.9999, 4] , [3.999, 4] , [3.99, 4] .
Use this to estimate the object's instantaneous velocity at t=4

V(4) = ???? ft/ec

How do i even approach this problem?

  • Calculus -

    You need to tell us what the position is at those times. Were you given a formula for that?

  • Calculus -

    No. I have no idea how to do this. I did part a and part be right but i cant do this part c
