physics

In this problem you will determine the average velocity of a moving object from the graph of its position as a function of time . A traveling object might move at different speeds and in different directions during an interval of time, but if we ask at what constant velocity the object would have to travel to achieve the same displacement over the given time interval, that is what we call the object's average velocity. We will use the notation to indicate average velocity over the time interval from to . For instance, is the average velocity over the time interval from to .

Find the average velocity over the time interval from 1 to 3 seconds.
