Unit 1: One-Dimensional Kinematics

Problem Set B

 

Problem 1:

Consider the position-time graph at the right. Determine the velocity (in m/s) of the object whose motion is represented by the graph. (If negative, then enter a negative answer.)

 

TIP:

The slope of a position-time graph is equal to the velocity of the object. This problem involves a straight-forward calculation of the slope. If you are having difficulty with this problem, then you will likely find mnay of the problems in Set B to be difficult. You should first take some time to read about slope calculations online at The Physics Classroom.
