Unit 1: One-Dimensional Kinematics

Problem Set C

 

Problem 1:

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

TIP:

This problem involves a routine slope calculation. If you are having difficulty with the problem, then you will likely find the remainder of the problem set to be difficult. Before proceeding, you should consider reviewing slopes and velocity-time plots. Use the link below.

 

If you have already solved several problems on the set and are still having difficulty with this one, then give careful attention to the reading of coordinate values along the vertical axis.
