An object moves along a straight line and

the velocity as a function of time is
presented by the above graph.
a. Find the acceleration of the object
for the time intervals: 0-5 s, 5 s- 10
s, 10 s-15 s, 15 s – 20 s, 20 s – 25 s,
and 25 s – 30 s.
b. Find the traveled distance of the
object for the entire trip.
c. Find the displacement of the
object for the entire trip.
d. Graph the position and
acceleration of the object between
t = 0 and t = 30s

  1. There are no diagrams or graphics or images on this web site.

    However, the distance is the area under the graph for the given interval. I assume the graph is piecewise linear, so find the areas of rectangles and trapezoids is easy.

    The acceleration is just the slope of the velocity graph. For an interval, it's the slope of the secant line joining the two points on the graph.
