Physics Graphs: Position vs. Time
The following
graph
represents the position of a particle as it moves along a straight line. Use the
data
on the
graph
to answer the questions.
General Questions

net
displacement over the 20 second interval?
4.
What is the instantaneous
velocity
(magnitude and direction) of the particle at t = 4 seconds?
5.
What is the instantaneous
speed
t = 13 seconds?
6.
What is the particle's instantaneous
speed
at t = 16 seconds?
7.
What is the average
speed
of the particle over the 20 second interval?
8.
