- An object travels North at #3 m/s# for #7 s# and then travels South at #4 m/s# for # 6 s#. What are the object's average speed and velocity?
- How long would it take to drive 15 miles at 35 miles per hour?
- What is the average speed of an object that is still at #t=0# and accelerates at a rate of #a(t) = 2t^2-t+4# from #t in [0,2]#?
- After traveling for 6.0 seconds, a runner reaches a speed of 10 m/s. What is the runner’s acceleration?
- The position of an object moving along a line is given by #p(t) = 2t - cos(( pi )/3t) + 2 #. What is the speed of the object at #t = 5 #?
